It's truly amazing to me what some people think should be standard in vehicles...Then people complain about base models costing too much.
Not saying standard but Ford provides the option for $135 for universal garage door opener in their trucks. So why not in the bronco?

Do you live in a climate that has heavy snow and serious hail every summer?
Nope. Just outside of Portland, OR. So rain 8 months of the year and gorgeous the other 4. Just a habit my wife and I have for whatever reason.

I don’t park in the garage, but I use the opener in my ‘04 Titan 3-4 times per week when I transfer my MTB from the garage to the truck and again to put it away when I get home. Anything that gets that much use I’d like to be standard, especially in a vehicle 16+ years newer. Guess I’ll have to go WiFi.

I'm so technology challenged I've never used the built in openers in my last two F-250's.

I've never used the voice text or commands crap either. They don't translate a southern drawl very well. I'm more an old school/analog guy.

I don't see what the problem is, hell if an Isuzu Rodeo can do this ^ then a Bronco should certainly have no problem ....

I must be getting old...an automatic garage door opener, my god man...its a fucking Bronco, not a BMW.
Well, we're paying near BMW prices for it....so adding a $15 cost accessory that you use every day and is much better built in would seem to make sense.

I wish mine 6G would come in at 3 series pricing :( That'd be a win all day (y)
