Got a base model commin , but still a good idea . Thanksno but you will need some rails to get in, especially if you go sas.
Nope! My Gf is 4’10”, she felt completely comfortable sitting inside the First Editing and Badlands.

Many new vehicles have seat track position sensors that won’t deploy the airbag if somebody is sitting too close. Unless it’s an extremely severe impact then it’ll deploy no matter what.Side steps/grab handle
I'd be more worried about sitting that close to an airbag though!
Good to know!Many new vehicles have seat track position sensors that won’t deploy the airbag if somebody is sitting too close. Unless it’s an extremely severe impact then it’ll deploy no matter what.
My wife and I are planning to make our Bronco our only vehicle. My wife is only 4’11”. Does anyone think this will be an issue, reaching pedals..etc
Good to know , thanksMy wife is 5'9" and she had trouble getting into a SAS model. The grab handle on the side of the dash wasn't in a good place to work well to help her climb in. Of course, have to consider that we are retirement age, so what she expects and what she's willing to put up with is different from someone much younger. Initially I hoped a non-SAS Badlands would be ok, but realistically it's only 1.25" shorter. My solution is the Rock Slide Engineering automatic step rock rails (for $2k). Oh well. Pretty sure your wife will need side steps to be comfortable and not have to jump in each time.
BTW, we found the seat height relative to the door sill height is much higher in the Bronco than in the Jeep.
10-4 thanks the input. And yes we are setting a date to drive the demo.My wife is 4'11".
Tree smashed her Focus a few months ago, so we recently went shopping. The initial plan was to have her drive my Bronco while I continued to drive my high-MPG daily driver to work and back. (Those planned changed after the most recent delays.)
She tried the dealers unit... Wildtrak with Sasquatch. No problem with the pedals, but she said she felt super high off the ground and couldn't really see the road in front of her. It also really bothered her that she didn't have a clear view out the back due to the spare tire.
Worth noting that the only type of vehicle she's driven is compact cars, and has never driven a truck/SUV/crossover before. So if your wife is comfortable driving trucks/SUVs... she'll probably already have a level of comfort that my wife does not have.
But regardless, if your dealer has a demo unit (most do), I'd definitely go check it out.
