Ugh... I have to keep doing a reality check after watching these videos. What’s cool and what I will ever get a chance to use are completely different things. Need to not spend money for the sake of spending money.

All I know is my buddy’s raptor rides way better on-road than my stock 150 4x4. I think the e rated tires on mine make a big difference but when the bed is unloaded it can be pretty violent in the rear. Obviously very different vehicle but I hope the upgraded suspension improves onroad driving as well. My wife can get pretty nauseas in my f150 around town.

my other friend’s stock TRD Tacoma has this incredibly smooth and “planted” feel on the road. Very stable and precise over any kind of bumps. Really would love to get the bronco to that kind of feel some day.
I would say yes for a start this does not have leaf srings on the rear so thats makes it a lot better as more based on the Ranger Raptor on the rear and after watching the video considering the terine and the speed they where going over the passenger communicated how smooth its was.

My observations:
- I didn't notice the passenger reach for any of the grab handles, and they went over some decent terrain. The camera seemed pretty steady too, leading me to believe it's a pretty stable ride.
- They were having normal conversations at like 50-60mph, off-road without having to raise their voices; didn't sound any noisier than my truck.

I love how the driver was talking about the Warthog. I doubt Ford wants any comments from Ford employees about the Warthog.

makes me really want one now.

:)
That's because the driver isn't a Ford employee, but is obviously in on the development of the vehicles because he races them probably gets some support from Ford. That being said, he was probably more forthcoming with the details than Ford would have liked at this point, haha.

These videos definitely have me reconsidering the high package with the 12" screen and 360 camera... might need to move up to that from the mid. :unsure:

I am sure he signed a non disclosure agreement. He just admitted to the existence of Raptor Bronco called the Warthog. At one point during the video, he started talking about the Warthog's suspension BUT stopped as I am sure he was like ... I may get in trouble.

Wow, the bronco is everything I hoped it would be.

Sway-bar disconnect is impressive.

12" screen and camera system looks so clear and lets you see so much.

Trail turn works well.

Suspension can go fast off road taking the bumps no problem, going faster then I would ever go.

Even with the top off (panels over the front and rear passengers off)the wind noise is not bad.

I cant wait to have a Bronco.

What’s the difference between sand and Baja mode?

Base Sasquatch guy wondering.

I figure just put it in sand mode and gas it.
Don't know the rea difference .(technical wise) but my test driver stayed in Baja majority of the time even in sand . Only change to Sand mode for a long climb in soft sand . Then changed out of it . Something about Torque vectoring I think. Beyond my knowledge of automotive .

agree, i didn't realize the rate of speed until he panned the camera to the 'road'! :D
