Jesus Christ - how many of you have zero idea what you are buying??

“it’s small”
To be fair. 97% of us ordering this thing are going to have to do it sight unseen. Which isn’t sitting right with me as each week passes. I really don’t like the thought of ordering one of these without seeing the trim and color I’m ordering in person. That being said, I think people need to just go take a look at 2 and 4 door Wranglers to get a better idea scale wise

Using this from the engagement story, the 2 door looks great. I wish the rear was stretched a couple inches where the back fender flare starts, but they nailed it regardless.

Even here, you have to adjust for the perspective of the angle. The back is furthest from the camera so it looks even smaller than it is.

I keep trying to like the 2 door but the more I look at it the more I think it looks goofy. The proportions just seem off to me.
I'll get hate for it but I consider the 4 door the better looking one.
It's the opposite for me. If I were forced to buy a 4 door due to kids I'd probably get something different. To each his own right?

A couple real concerns I have:

1. This vehicle is small. The two door is especially tiny.
2. The looks are starting to fade on me.
2 door SUVs are generally a thing of the past for that reason but it looks like a nice size to me. As Susan pointed out, the 2 door is perfect for those of us driving on small mountain roads or needing to squeeze into a "parking spot" at a crowded trailhead. The 2 door definitely won't suit everyone's needs but I think Ford sized it perfectly for anyone wanting a 2 door SUV in today's world.

I was all in on the 2 door just due to the fact it looks badass with the shorter wheelbase and the squatch. Plus it was more true to the 1st gen style.
But this latest in-person profile pic has me looking at it and all I can see is an updated Bronco II. IT would be loads better with the top off, but in that pic it doesn't do it for me.
Now I'm thinking 4 door again. Easier for my teens to get in and out of (and enjoy the ride in), and it looks like a tactical badass with the doors and top off. Especially in a dark color with the squatch.

Modular or the molded
I think the molded Grey color is going to be much nicer than people think. It's not jet-black; so it won't cook the occupants. Plus, it will be a nice contrast to the shiny paint. This rig shouldn't look like a jacked-up car.

Velocity Blue BB with molded grey top. I'm sure Ford will use the same plastic for the top as they do the front grill; so it will be all matchy. They'll get it right.

I can't get into the gray top with the black exterior. Then again, not many colors get my excited about the grey top. I feel like catcus grey is one of the few colors where the grey top doesn't look bad.
Antimatter Blue and Velocity Blue will look great with the grey roof. That's a bloody large flat solar panel...so a jet black roof would be nobueno down here in Florida.

I hope they make the Big Bend wheels and grill match the color of the top. If they do (can't imagine they won't); it will be a great set of contrasting colors and textures on the rig.

2. The looks are starting to fade on me.

Maybe it’s that we keep seeing black Frankenstein pre-production models with mismatched parts and colors. Or, every spy shot we see has Broncos that are beat to hell. Or the grey hardtop. Not sure, but I’m definitely not as excited by the looks as I originally was.

Im sure I’m not the only one feeling this way, and this is the big risk Ford takes by taking FOREVER to get it to market. If they were available, one would be in my garage already.
I could have written this post.
