I think it's a great question and one that a lot of us are struggling with. My current F150 Sport 2.7 auto with rear Locker (32" "all season" tires) gets me most anywhere I need to go. This is limited almost entirely by ground clearance and maybe slightly by the tread design of the tires. The Bronco will have better approach and departure angles, better GOAT modes and even the stock BD 32" all terrains will be more aggressive and capable. So I think the BD 2.3 auto with "advanced" transfer case is my baseline and gets enough capability for the Bronco to be part toy, part daily driver. Probably the case for most of us. For comparison sake, likely close to a Jeep Rubicon, giving up a bit off road and maybe gaining a bit on-road performance and comfort wise. My Lizard brain then kicks in. The aluminum wheels for BD are my favorite and I don't like the steels, so add $1k. If I really want the 265/70/17 tires (I think they will make the BD very capable for my intended use) add $1500 for 5 tires, mounted. Now SQ is only about $2.5k more. Well, for $2.5k it is a smoking deal and gets me a full blown toy that I can take almost anywhere in the country and wheel on most trails that I would be comfortable taking my vehicle on (not where the lunatics with 40" boggers and big blocks run mud pits here in MI). The other plus for me in MI- Snow. 315/70/17s make the option for trail running much better and longer in MI. January through April in a lot of the state would not be accessible on stock BD "32s". Then my really really Lizard brain says, if your spending that much and have the bigger tires, you have to go 2.7, which you really want anyway. That same lizard brain then notices BL, with 2.7 and LUX, that adds the better stereo, adaptive cruise, heated wheel and trail cam (the options, other than mid that I really like) is only $4k more. Plus it gives me the tires I really want (33s). That's how I go from baseline acceptable and really cool at $43K to what I will probably order at $54K that balances all the different capabilities.
