Is anyone considering waiting for the Warthog instead of getting a BL or WC when Ford starts shipping them?

I am personally an eager beaver and will not be waiting, despite the appeal of the Warthog (not to mention the price, assuming its more expensive,, the BL I'm ordering will already stretch my budget a bit), but I'm guessing that some of y'all are going to want the Warthog and have the patience to wait.

No, I am not going to wait. I want one desperately though. My expectation is that demand will be insane and I am not willing to put down thousands over MSRP to get one. If they are reservation eligible (some new process) or on the lots at MSRP, I will trade in.

My bigger dilemma is to buy two Broncos now (His/Hers) or to wait for the Warthog for the second Bronco.

I am also thinking about a F150 Raptor as the second vehicle. The Bronco doesn't solve my hauling needs (fishing gear) but I can make it work. A Raptor would fix that problem.

yeah the Raptor is a really appealing vehicle in its own right, I considered one too but I really like the idea of a manual, and I'll make more use out of a trail/camping truck than a Baja style runner anyway... but they're just so darned cool. Anyway, I'm very excited about the Badlands but I like the idea of maybe trading for the Warthog in a few years

I decided to wait on the Warthog. Not crazy about the current build options and really would like a more powerful engine. I like the raptors but not in the market for a pickup truck. Mine is more of a family hauler.

I'm at that age where I want to buy what I want instead of compromising. I plan on the truck lasting me at least 10 years so going to go all out and just do it right the first time.

Can't wait, already been waiting to long. But in a couple years I will consider trading in my 2021 Bronco in on a 2023 Warthog.

No, I’m not waiting for a $90k Bronco or any SUV in that price range.

While trucks have a lot of uses and a topless manual 2 Dr Basemansquatch Bronco is going to be alot of fun on the beach, once price hits $50k I start to look at cars. Fast cars.

Not one bit. A 70k+ ford of any kind will never be in my driveway. I’ll get another 911 or a restomod _____.

No.

Wait another year and pay MORE money?

Warthog/Raptor is just ADM directly to Ford, ain't it?

If we get info on a launch date for the Warthog and if it's a year-ish after the WT and BL models roll off of the line, I will wait for the Warthog. I want to spend the money once and am the type that would be envious the first time I pulled up next to one on the road/trail (for better or for worse)

I intend to buy a Badlands and trade for a warthog as long as it comes in a 2 door. Hopefully my Badlands will still be a very hot ticket so I won’t get beat up too bad on a trade in a year or two. I have a 2019 Raptor Supercab that I love and am keeping.

Depends. If they show it and all it’s features before the ‘21 order gets finalized then it’s a good possibility.

But not if we’re in the dark on what it is

Getting loaded WT to daily and if the Braptor comes out I’ll trade in. Nice part about a loaded model the trade in will still be there.

I assume it'll be $70k+. As sick as it will be I wouldn't pony up at that price. I'm already looking at mid $50s for a BL and that's going to be way more than i need in an off road vehicle already
