Lots of anxiety on this site lately due to the many unanswered (or new) questions from the launch. Since this site is surely used as a sounding board for Bronco development, any chance we can get a Rep to address questions? Mark Levine’s twitter is a poor substitute.

-Samsquanch and no MT... come on Ford, you knew that’d be an issue. Whats the reasoning?

-Cargo space in the two door (seats up\seats down)? a BIG factor for those considering between the two.
Whats your most pressing questions from the reveal?

I have two issues
Bandlands no carpet option, you can equip it with every option but no carpet
Wildtrak forcing the Sasquatch Package on you if you want this model

I want 33's and carpet but it's impossible to get WTF

Here's my personal take. Once Ford finalizes the order guides, like the ones that popped up on Bronco Sport Forums, you'll get some concrete specs and concrete packaging info. Ford uses the term "published" to refer to when something is set in stone for ordering so when that happens, it's officially official.

because your in the minority. Those who want the hardcore offroad version want no carpet

I’m guessing no manual for Sasquatch and 2.7 simply due to the clutch. That much torque with those HUGE tires is going to cause a lot of clutches to burn up. Unless you go big. Which makes city driving worse.

take rate is low anyway. (Less than 5%) so ford doesn’t want manual Sasquatches sitting around unsold

Thats a reasonable response. Shame that couldnt be better explained during launch. lots of frustration on this site and I think the expectation was that things would be better defined, especially on a reveal delayed by months.

perhaps the error was being ‘specific’ with trim/package details, allowing pre-orders but still vague at the same time.
Either be vague or specific at reveal. Not both.

Curious if 33's won't be available as an option on something like the outerbanks.

I would not worry about it right now. Carpet is likely to be a standalone option. All they released are the packaging options. We know there are 200+ “accessories“ and I would bet carpet is one of them.

I went Black Diamond for the rubber floors, I'm hoping it stretches all the way to the back but I don't think that will work.

Car makers have frustrated me for years with packages and combinations . However - Q: why is the larger infotament system not available across the board as an option ? It seems to be the only system Ford is proud of... i have not seen one single ford press shot with the 8 inch.

Do you think without carpet there will be a lot more noise? I am going to daily this thing, and would love rubber floors so I can clean out sand easily, but if its going to be louder Id rather deal with having to clean the car out

Keep in mind 8” is what Jeep calls their “larger” screen

Hoping to upgrade the 32's on my BD to 33's from the factory. Be nice if they offered that but I'm pessimistic.
More than likely not. The models with 33s have lower gears than the 32 and smaller tires. Would be nice if the lower gears was an option.

In my experience shopping for a manual-equipped 4WD, there weren't too many just hanging around lots. To the extent that's an actual issue (which certainly wasn't the case last December near me when I bought my manual Taco), I find it hard to believe that adding the Sasquatch package to the manual will somehow yield an even less "desirable" product such that they're just "hanging around lots."
