I'm all over the place. We don't know pricing, we dont know how they drive, yet many of us have preordered something.... Are we going to get a chance to test drive or maybe even see something before we place our actual orders? I'm guessing no. I'm on the fence until I can see them in person and test drive something. Anyone else feel the same way? I guess we could test drive something with the 2.3 and auto...or something with the 2.7 and auto to get a feel.

I knew I wanted this vehicle since they announced it, knowing it would basically be the same as the Wrangler (off-roader and take doors off etc.). Now seeing would it will be like design wise, I'm sold. I would like to test drive it to make my decision on which engine to go with, but I know it won't happen. I reserved one and will probably building mine sometime after September or whenever Ford let us turn our reservation into orders.

If you or someone what's to test drive before you buy or lease, seems like that won't happen anytime soon. Just with how my people made reservations and just thinking most won't cancel their reservations, are they even going to have enough factory capacity to make dealer orders. I suspect Ford will be filling all these reservations and there won't be 2021 dealer order Broncos. but I could be wrong or so many people cancel their reservations.

I will probably order VB which is late availability. Hopefully someone local is willing to at least offer rides.

We haven't pre-ordered anything yet, just made a reservation to pre-order. Even then, at least with my dealer, I don't pay until delivery sometime in 2021?....I am sure by then we will get a chance to drive them. (y)


That being said, I ain't writing any checks until I drive one.

Can I get power seats in the Big Bend? Which package do I need to get? I just can’t get comfortable unless I can adjust the seats.

My only real concern is the manual trans. I'm a little hesitant with it being an all new trans, especially a Getrag unit. And clutch pedal feel / shift quality etc. is easy to get wrong. From the limited amount of info out there, the test drivers seem to really like the 2.3 with the manual, so that's something.

Rumors have it that dealers, or some dealers ... will have Pre-pro models available to see, touch, taste, and even drive , sometime before order time. Those pre-pro models will NOT be saleable, according to what I read.

we bought our volvo xc60 without even seeing it. but with the xc90 having very similar interior, it was easy for us to buy it.
ford has nothing else that looks or feels like the bronco, for me, i'd have to see it in person before dropping money down. or having some sort of ability to pull away from the deal when there is one to drive or see in the flesh.

My wife and I definitely have to test drive it first. No way we can spend that kind of money without being as sure as possible. We don’t have to be the first people on the block with one in the driveway.
