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

Plan on getting outer banks (for black/brown interior) and then option it up to wild track. Once after market industry releases Upper Control Arms and better coil overs, will be adding them. Suspect ride will be far better then factory with several more inches of wheel travel. As far as motors, I have the twin turbo 4 in my wrangler and it is very strong, so I suspect that the larger v6 will make the Bronco plenty fast. My last bronco had a 351 and was a dog compared to new motors. Not to mention it sucked down fuel like an OPEC crack addict.

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.
Wow a his and hers is a great idea. The bronco we reserved in July will be my wife’s daily driver but I do 97% of the driving so I’ll still be behind the wheel quite often.we’ll have my ‘18 accord paid off before the warthog arrives. Still may wait until the new bronco is paid off to get it...... but you definitely got me reconsidering getting an XLT Roush F-150🤔

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.
Raptor would be a much better family hauler than a Bronco/warthog

Definitely waiting. Hopefully not until 2023 though.

Not one bit. A 70k+ ford of any kind will never be in my driveway. I’ll get another 911 or a restomod _____.
Personal car advice question for you:
  1. I have 2 kids (4 and 2 years old).
  2. I have a new XC90 for family / dog hauling.
  3. I had leased a 340i to wait for the new M3, which is now decidedly hideous, and after turning in the lease I now no longer have any second car at all, so I've got to get something eventually.
I thought a Bronco would be cool and fun, and give us space and utility for life. In my heart though, I want something that feels special. Ideally I'd have a safari 911 or something ridiculous like that.

Question: Does your 991 feel special (even next to the Ferrari)? Would you cram/ cut your kids' legs off to keep it?

I've got the saw ready... I could, but probably shouldn't spend over $70k- would want a manual, potentially convertible. I bounce between a Bronco, 991, GT350, etc. all day long. If the kids weren't in the picture, I'd probably just do a Boxster.

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.
I do too lol, 50k goes a long way in the fast cars department

I am not waiting simply because I am just under my max budget with a loaded two door badlands. I am sure the Warthog will offer a bigger engine and more power, and I will definitely be jealous, but I don't need it and it's not worth overextending myself to get it.

Also, I do not expect the Warthog to come in a two door variant and that's a must for me. I think this because it is supposed to be a desert runner type vehicle so it will hand much better at high speeds with the longer wheel base.

On another note, the 392 Wrangler will only come in a four door variant. I think this is because that much power on a short wheel base is just waiting for a rollover. Ford probably has the same thought in mind and also will only need the long wheelbase four door to compete with Jeep's 392 Wrangler.

My 2014 911S is a forever keeper. It’s just that good. The F430 is a flash in the pan. I’ll sell it soon and will miss it for awhile but I doubt I’ll own another one. The GT350 was nice but it did not feel or look more special than my neighbor’s 6cyl. The new GT 500 is crazy but I’ll wait for that to depreciate before considering it.

if you have the funds and want a great sports car look for a 15/16 911 GTS, great car but still 80k plus. A very nice 2013 911 S just sold on BaT last week for just over 50k, amazing price. If you are looking for a cheaper model, find a nice Cayman GTS or S with a 6cyl. I’m not much for the Porsche 4cyl turbo.

My wife hates the F430 and does not find it easy to drive. Family and wife’s happiness make owning cars easier. The F430 will be gone before the Bronco is delivered. This will make my wife immensely happy. I try to do what makes the household happy.

get out of my head! very similar situation over here... was also considering waiting for the new M3, but that hideous new kidney grill is a huge, giant turnoff. That's what led me to reserve a bronco. The more I think about it, the more excited I am about a different kind of enthusiast driving. I love fast cars, and have had a few, but I'm ready for a new sort of adventure I think, and the ability to move the kids around a little easier is really appealing (even though they claim they would be happy with another sports car with a cramped back seat)

Keeping my Raptor for the same reason. Especially since there's no indication the Warthog will pull the boat!
