I've seen nothing in the 2-door technical specs regarding Auto Stop/Start. Anyone else???

Its mentioned numerous times in Bronco Sport specs.

Curious if 33's won't be available as an option on something like the outerbanks.
On the pdf sheet it states that it comes standard with 32s but the 35s are optional. nothing about 33s, this is from the pdf sheet you get when you click on compare the models. However, I'm not sure if this is finalized considering there's still half a year left to start the ordering process.

Why no 2 dr soft top? Will Ford sell you multiple hard tops (white and gray)?

Can an insider confirm they are going to offer a tune for the 2.3 engine?

Also, I would really like Ford to offer a nice set of canvas seat covers since I'm getting leather seats. Something as nice as the badger coachworks seat covers they make for the land rover defender.

Haven’t seen it mentioned, but I feel like I saw a button to turn it off in one of the interior pics. So yeah I would say we’re getting it. At least they’re giving us a way to turn it off.

I'm not familiar with the Ford start/stop system, so my question is do you have to turn it off each time you turn the ignition on or does it keep the last known setting?

I’m not either, but I’m assuming since there’s a button it would have to be every single time. I’m only familiar with the GM system and there wasn’t a button at all.

You have to switch it off every time you start the vehicle to keep it from auto stop/start.

Gotcha, a button is definitely better than no button for sure! My wife’s Jeep Cherokee requires a push of the button every time, which is a pain. I had a BMW that retained the desired setting until you told it otherwise which was awesome.

Yeah and I assume if it’s a big issue for anyone it would be relatively easy to install some kind of permanent defeat.

Also I assume the Ford system works the same way, but my ex-gf’s car had it and if you had the AC blowing it wouldn’t shut off. And down here in Texas you run the AC so much, even in the winter months, it was hardly ever an issue.

but if you want Position Sensitive Dampers you have to step up to Badlands, unless you go Sasquatch

Looking at your profile and vehicles I doubt you have ever owned a Bronco. I have owned three, and have been active in the Bronco community for years, and trust me even in the Classic Bronco world most don't do any hard core offroading. If I go offroading it isn't hard to put some all weather rubber mats in it

If you want a Wildtrak without Sasquatch? Get an Outer Banks
33's and carpet? I'm sure you will be able to order a Base, BB, OB with larger tires. If not, put them on yourself after you take delivery.

BB & OB come standard with 32's. Is 1" really going to be that noticeable of a difference?
Ya I looked into a Outer Banks, but it only has 4.27:1 gears so if I go up to 33's it will be geared to high. I want the 4.46:1 gears, and you can't get the Bilstein Position Sensitive Dampers on the Outer banks. I was excited about getting back into a Bronco, but if I can't get it the way I want, I really don't need it that bad. The more I look into it the more it looks like I won't be getting a Bronco.

It's OK I have a GT350 and a C63S so I think I'll survive
