I just received my badlands bronco yesterday! Love it!

I did not get a physical manual, only the digital one on screen. My dealer said this is correct. This would be my first car without a manual. I just want to confirm.

Thanks

One of the advantages of the digital owner’s manual, besides taking up no physical space in the glove box or cargo storage bay, is the ability to get Over The Air (OTA) updates when details change, typos/errors are corrected, or a general revision is issued for any number of reasons. With a physical manual, you would have to maintain an errata sheet or print/buy a new copy.

The obvious downside to a digital-only owner’s manual is the inability to refer to the manual inside the vehicle if the battery dies or the computer screen in the dash fails or becomes inoperable. In those situations, it is helpful to have a digital copy saved as a PDF on a mobile device (phone or tablet).

Looks sharp . . . I was sold on the Area 51 until I saw the Cactus Gray. I just have to remind myself to quit looking at the colors at this point LOL
I kept going back and forth between those colors as well. LOL
