Thanks for posting this video.

The good: Super fun to watch with great commentary and Bronco footage
The bad: Have to wait another 12+ weeks for mine
The ugly: Have to wait another 12+ weeks for mine
😂 the wait will be worth it for all of us I swear

Great video, thank you for posting! Seeing what is basically my build driven by a pro is awesome!

That video made me want my bronco even more. I reserved within the first 24hr, but have 3 of the deadly sins so who knows when I will be able to drive my bronco like that :(

Great video and good interview skills too. I like how it wasnt just a ride along/inside video but how you brought in some outside footage as well.

Chase, first off, thank you for taking the time to put this video together. This may be the best video on the internet of the bronco being driven close to its capabilities.
Hearing how enthusiastic Vaughn still is... two years into driving these Broncos around brings me so much confidence that ordering one will be worth the wait.
If Baja mode is anything like a gen 2 raptor, (the only personal experience I have to go off) I cannot wait! it's Kind of funny to hear him compare the Bronco to a Raptor and a RZR.
Was there anything he mentioned that he would like to see in the Bronco that Ford has not already provided?

(To everyone concerned about rattles.. I have driven a fair share of vehicles off-road at high speed. Not once, have I been in one that doesn't rattle at 60mph over washboard roads.)

Anyone who expects their Bronco to be a rattle free vehicle will be sorely disappointed and should probably reevaluate what they want in a vehicle.

It's a Ford. It's going to rattle.
my 99 F350 never rattled and my 2017 F350 doesn't rattle. My Wife's 2021 F150 doesn't rattle either. I get it now, you were Joking. ;)

I know what it is and won’t be there on production units 😉
Thanks....i’ll trust that you are right. I think this video pushed me back into the WildTrak. Gotta have Baja mode. That was badass. 👍

Several of the trucks in the video have a minimal bumper. Is that the standard modular steel bumper with the ends removed?

When I looked at the mod bumper in person a few days ago. It seemed like you could remove 4 or so of the “Bronco” bolts and remove the ends of the bumper.

Thanks. yeah, I just found this. So I guess that is the modular front bumper with the bottom of the wings removed.

Badlands has Baja mode. Wildtrak has Sport and Badlands has Rock Crawl, but they both have Baja mode.

Anyone else think Ford is doing the "fake engine sound pumped in through the stereo" on these? That thing sounds way too good accelerating hard in this video. It's louder than expected, and throatier which the ecoboost V6 is neither of those. The tone is wrong.
Hey Chase, how did it sound in real life? Your video made the Broco sound bad ass! But people are saying it’s fake noise that Ford is adding through the stereo? If that’s true, then why haven’t we heard it on other videos before? Why just this one? Doesn’t make sense to me.

Only reason to get the High Package, the 360 off road camera stuff is bad ass. I cannot wait to travel with my new Badlands.

Very well done video!

You know Ford had the right engineers on this when they bring out professional racers to test it, have to pull them aside, and tell them "you're not driving it hard enough..."!
