Is anyone having trouble deciding between 2-door and 4-door?

Two weeks ago I was all in on the 2 door but as time is going on I’m beginning to get closer to a 50/50 split.

The 4 door has:

- a larger fuel tank
- stowable doors in the back
- much larger cargo area
- rear seat AC duct (unconfirmed on 2dr)
- 8/10-way power adjustable seats
- cargo tray

The 2 door I mostly prefer for the proportions (looks better) and it’ll likely off-road better.
All good points! Thank you. I’m in it big for the cargo (no kiddos) but am disappointed with The rooftop ratings. We shall see!

I cannot bring myself to own a 2 door ever again. I get impatient enough waiting for my kids to climb out of a 4 door. I cannot imagine how much I would age if every time they also had to navigate around a seat.

Seriously, how does it take 3+ minutes to unbuckle a seatbelt and get out of a car?!
Wife and Daughter are both slow as fuck.... I just start walking away any more, they catch up.
They've now learned I wont put up with that lollygagging crap and now get out of the car in a reasonable amount of time.

I love everything about the new bronco, but I’d buy something else before I bought a 4 door model. If room is that big of a priority then just downgrade the off-road chops and get a roomier SUV. Plenty of decent options

Ordered a 2 door. I have a Tacoma 4 door and the back seats never get used. The 2 Door will be Much more capable off road vs the 4 door. I'll laugh if someone tries to disagree. This should be obvious to all

2 door, have an Explorer for hauling junk around and the leg room in back is the same. Daughter loves riding in the back of the Mustang so 2dr Bronco will be like a limo.

100% Two-door for me. Just me and the future wife, and a cat. Maybe a baby within the next 10 yr or so, but I'm not concerned. If I need more cargo space, i'll hook up a small trailer. Will prob have something like that for camping eventually anyways.

4 door broncos aren't real broncos
They are now. Check the Ford website
😆.
I love the idea of a 2 door for its heritage. But after driving a 4 door Wrangler for a few years, the 2drs seem to stubby.

I think the 4 door looks better (especially when both have the doors off), but i was torn a few weeks ago because of the classic look if the 2 door. I polled friends and family and they favored the 4 door pretty heavily. Both are very capable offroad from the factory. Both are nice as hell. 4 door makes more sense for us though. Maybe i’ll get a 2 door when this is paid off.

I am seeing that people who don’t know Broncos are confused by the 2 door’s size. Saw a comment online saying it looked like a mean Rav 4 inspired SUV. Yeah okay...

I have a theory that getting in or out of a car with kids creates a tear in the space time continuum that skips you through time.

I do a lot of overlanding/long distance off-road camping. It doesn’t affect me as much, because I can get away with a <110lb rooftop tent, but will have to find more space or consider an exoskeleton for extra fuel, storage, bikes, gear etc. Knowing the 2 door seats aren’t “removable” may have me considering a 4 door, which unfortunately has the same rooftop ratings (but extra cargo space)! My little Subaru sedan is rated just as much for rooftop capability. I’m still excited regardless.

I reserved a two door, empty nester.. just me and the wife so the 2 door suits our needs.
I’ve never liked the looks of the 4 dr Jeep.

but the 4 dr Bronco is appealing.
