High package is about as far as I’d go. All the luxe stuff is bullshit. If you want luxury go buy luxury.

Heated wheel is the only thing I want. Silly it's not grouped with the heated seats in the Mid package or in a stand alone cold weather package. Money grab at it's finest.
if im not mistaken you get the heated wheel standard with big bend and other higher trims.

So for 2300$ from High to Lux they offer us:
1) "2 additional front row smart-charging USB ports" - 10$ car charger on Amazon
2) "Wireless charging pad" - wireless car charger - 35$ on Amazon
3) "Voice-Activated Touchscreen Navigation System" - built-in in Android Auto/Apple Carplay - free
4) Heated steering wheel - OK (how often is it used?)
5) "Evasive Steering Assist" - you need to start maneuvering by yourself, why not finish by yourself? but OK.
6) "B&O Sound System with 10 speakers including a subwoofer" - OK
7) "Adaptive Cruise Control" - this is the only feature I really need.
8) "Universal garage door opener" - OK, but device which can open any garage door costs 150$

Then, funny fact - necessary hardware for "Adaptive Cruise Control" and "Evasive Steering Assist" is already included in lower trims! (radar + camera). This is only software-activated feature.
I really hope "Adaptive Cruise Control" will be available ala carte.

So for 2300$ we have in reality:
Subwoofer, heated wheel, 200$ accessories from Amazon and few software-activated features. Really??

What's your thoughts?
I'm more than happy with the Standard Package.

4Dr Badlands, 2.7L auto, hardtop, C.O., & downgrade to cloth seats. No extras!

It's not much of a value that's for sure. I do like the heated steering wheel in the winter, and the adaptive cruise is pretty cool. I have them in my Jeep. I'll bet that if you want leather sets you'll be forced to buy the "lux" package. Manufacturer's (not just Ford) have a way of selling you things you would otherwise not buy. It's a profit deal. :)

Unfortunately, you get a leather wrapped steering wheel, but not a heated steering wheel. It is only available through the Lux package. It would be nice if they changed it to be included in a "cold weather package" like what Jeep has, but I doubt that will happen for this year.

Nope, only FE gets it as 'standard' and that is only because the FE has basically all the options :)

based on the estimated priced options, my wife's specced out 4dr badsquatch will end up costing around $3500 more (not including the warn winch) than the FE. Good news is, I wouldn't have to worry about replacing the FE interior to get rid of the navy blue. Bad news is, I'd probably save money replacing the FE interior if I had a FE reservation.

I'm looking at around 56k, definitely getting the lux pkg.

Adds up quick and course won't know exact details and options until the B&P are rolled out but I see the following in her Bronco:
-4dr Badlands
-2.7 & auto
-Lux package (if can get B&O system seperately, most likely would go that route)
-Sasquatch
-body-colored painted modular hardtop (hope to not have to select the dual-top option)
-leather seats (pending what B&P shows, may go aftermarket)
-tow package

Other add-ons:
-Warn winch
-Rear cargo shelf

Sauce??

Heated steering wheel & seats would actually get me to bump up to BB.
I just looked and it was the seats that are heated I got it mixed about but you do get heated seats with the bb mid

I can add heated seats myself for about $300.
Pulling out the steering column is a whole different matter. :cautious:

Anyone concerned Ford might try to force leather seats with Lux? It could be why it feels like there is a large jump from High package for such few options.

wouldn't want to give up marine grade vinyl just to have the Lux package.

I would personally be THRILLED if that price jump included leather.
Otherwise I hope the B/O system is a stand alone option as well.
