We liked this so much we signed up for the Vegas Off Roadeo.

FWIW, the Wildtrak 2-door went 0-60-0 on that paved section easily, lots of room to spare.
I don’t doubt it!
I slowed down well before the sign

So glad I had the opportunity to go out to the Fort McDowell off-road event today! This was my first technical off-road trail ever and the Bronco team did a great job on educating everyone and guiding on trail.

I've been SO frustrated with the delays. This is a huge decision for me because it's a lot of debt to take on. And unfortunately I don't have the most reliable vehicle right now which makes the wait worse. Many times I've almost said forget it I'll get a 4Runner, Wrangler, or Subaru. I can't turn back now though. The Bronco feels right as I'm sure many of you can relate. Here's hoping we all get our Broncos by Q2 of next year or sooner 🤞

Great event. Very well organized. Thanks to Regine my trail guide, to Charlene the technical consultant and everyone else who made it such an enjoyable event.
I got to drive a 2 door CO OBX with the V6. I have a 2 door VB V6 BaseSquatch on order. My daily driver is a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500.
A lot of people have already received their Broncos and there are a lot of ride reports out there now but for those that haven’t driven one yet, and I hadn’t until today, here’s my two cents.
The Bronco drove very nicely and was very capable, even without the Sasquatch package. I didn’t play with the GOAT modes much. Most of the time it was in either 2H or 4L. The BaseSquatch doesn’t have Baja mode but another of the guides said he felt Sand mode was pretty close.
Throttle response was good. I didn’t notice any lag.
Suspension seemed quite soft. It felt smooth over the small bumps and didn’t throw me around as much as my old TJ used to when crossing bigger rocks or crossing dips/drops/ruts etc. Maybe I have just learned to drive more slowly/carefully.
I was impressed with the ability to see ahead via the camera. This was very useful when cresting a ridge. If I was planning on doing a lot of off roading this would be a must have option.
Trail Turn Assist was fun and the one foot driving mode was also useful. I would have liked the opportunity to try it out on a gravel road.
The Bronco got up to 50 mph pretty quickly on the short stretch of pavement available and the brakes were consistent.
Overall I was impressed with the whole package. A good all round off road capable vehicle that exceeded my expectations. I think most people will be happy with their purchases.
As an aside, the Cyber Orange seems to be identical to the Yellow Blaze Tri Metallic I had on my just sold 2011 Mustang.

Two things my girlfriend and I keep talking about, after attending the event on 10/2;
how capable the Bronco is,

and how F’ng nice the staff at the event was!
From the staff who checked us in, to Scott our trail guide, Sean who drove my GF 50’ to our car because of her sprained ankle, and the staff while packing up, stopped and pulled out the EruptionGreen gas can so we could see the color.
A great crew at the event, thank you!!

Yep, it just felt wrong blowing by that 25MPH sign on that short paved section at high speed... but it was sure fun. I drove the 2dr WIldtrak this morning.

How did the Bronco Rodeo go in Phoenix. I am signed up to go 10/6. Was it worth it?
Went today, it was a very enjoyable experience. Got to rip around for a while and the trails were actually pretty neat. First time offroad, and had a great time.

I thought so. Not the full day Off Roadeo, just an hour on the trail. Fun little trail, nothing extreme or technical. If you’ve never driven off road before this is a great introduction.
And it’s completely free!
