I asked two questions on the Bronco Nation Live Feed...and both questions got answered...sort of:

Me" Why was the rear sway bar added to the 2022 4-door Sasquatch?
Esteban: "That's an engineering question. It's being added on 4-door Sasquatch units and I can try and get a better answer from engineering on why that is."

Me: Why doesn't the 2022 Bronco have the climate control temp on the climate dials?
Esteban: "That's a new change that I was just made aware of actually...and I'm not 100% certain why that change was made."

Yeah seems like usual big company problems.

Internal engineering changes don't make it to the documentation and therefore don't make it to the teams that handle public communications.

I can't really fault Ford for it because literally all major companies have this issue. I work in IT, and spent a good portion of last week tracking down a fairly major software change that a developer made and "I didn't think it was important to document it" :mad: .

But wow is it annoying to deal with. Both internally and externally as a customer. I bet Esteban now has to go track down what other changes were made that he wasn't aware of.

I'm wondering what the follow up will look like....or is he just saying he'll follow up

I have a late build 21, and the rear axle has the provision for a sway bar, but no sway bar! The early 21’s don’t then have the provision for one.

Esteban also told us a year ago to wait until 2022 in order to get a roof rack on the Sasquatch 4 door.

It had us guessing for many months if that was a hard top redesign or something added to the suspension to prevent rollover.

I’m sure he knows but can’t say…as a follow up question could lead to - how dangerous would it be for a customer to install a roof rack on a 2021 sasquatch without the rear sway bar. The answer is not safe enough for ford to allow you to order a 2021 with a rack. But not a good look or rabbit hole they would want to go down
