I’ve always liked savagegeese, Mark and Jack are very objective and have excellent automotive and mechanical knowledge. If you’ve seen their videos you know they have no problems ripping into Ford, however here Jack makes a very compelling case for why the Bronco is superior to the Wrangler for the overwhelming majority of drivers and uses.

Good honest video. Got a build date for that exact setup and color Bronco. Thanks for the post.
Same, but I unfortunately went with the 10AT since I wanted the mid package :/ CG is a great color and Black Diamond is the perfect balance of capability and value to me. Enjoy your Bronco!

I went back and forth numerous times between BD and BaseSquatch. I ended up getting a build date for BaseSquatch and was going to make the switch back to BD (mid pkg).

I know i'll love the BaseSquatch but I think BD owners should be very happy with their choice.

"You can get a limited slip - a traditional limited slip Dana in the rear"

Um, I don't think so?

I'm constantly going back and forth mentally and on spreadsheets 🤣 Still have a BD on order though

First. Nice review minus being mostly onroad based. However this is yet another surprisingly positive review of the I4 MT. Awesome.

Second. The BD trim on steel's looks good, top 3 trim next to Base and BL IMO.

Third. The undercarriage looked pretty worn out for being so new. Yes it's being used which is great but man...looks pretty rough. Been in LOTS of water and mud. Just thinking about how it will underbody components all hold up longterm..

Impressed per usual. Bravo bronco

Thanks for posting. But that just pisses me off more that I still don’t have mine! I know it’s a 1st world problem of the spoiled rotten, but…I, I …ok, I’ll try to be more mature and wait patiently ….

Yeah I was kind of bummed out that they didn't do anything off-road.

That said, there are a billion off-road reviews of the Bronco, and very few on-road reviews. And to savagegeese's point, most of the time I spend in the Bronco will be on-road... so it makes sense to look at the on-road performance. One of the few that has done a real on-road review.

I also wish they had a chance to review the 2.3L or 2.7L automatic. They have been extremely critical with how Ford tunes their automatic transmissions as of late (the Ranger reviews especially). I used to think it was them being overly nit-picky. But after I picked up my wife's new Escape this past summer, I know exactly what they're talking about. The whole thing is super annoying to drive unless it is in Sport mode because Ford is tuning their Normal mode like it is a second Eco mode.
