Morning y'all!

What are your opinions on the headlights available? While I feel the signature lighting is cool, I actually prefer the standard LED lighting as it's more retro.

Same, I like the standard lighting (looks more retro as you say) but like the outer banks / wildtrak grille. I’m sure the grille will be an easy swap though.

Yeah I'm assuming there'll be an entire fleet of grille options from factory and aftermarket. I'm definitely looking to put a retro looking grille on her

Doesn't the Signature lighting also come with LED tail lights? Or is that separate?
I think LED lights all around are standard on all models, but Outerbanks and above have the LED Signature headlights, which adds the LED Halo and LED strips that go into the headlight.

Yeah I'm wondering about the same. LED headlights are standard for sure across all models, but the way they explained the taillights makes me question whether it's LED or not for lower models (not a deal breaker but c'mon it's 2020 - LED's should be standard)

I can't remember where I read it but I'm pretty sure all models will come with LED tail lights.

Like ericmario said, it's 2020. Even Hyundai Elantras have led tail lights standard.

LED tail lights are probably cheaper to build at this point. They'd have to go out of their way to not use LEDs just to let everyone know that you bought the "cheap" Bronco.

I think OBX is the first trim to get the LED taillights standard, lower trims get incandescents (I'm too lazy to look up the chart). All models come with LED headlights, but OBX+ get the "signature" headlights with the white "power button" DRL rings.

The lower trims (not sure for which models exactly) definitely seem to have a traditional non-LED tail light versus the higher trims.

geez....well i guess either swap 'em out for an aftermarket pair or just slap on a LED bulb in it (I like retro design cues but not retro bulbs ha)

I like base headlights myself. That pic of the base taillight makes it look good. It actually as some dumb clear section that runs vertical which ruins it.

Im glad I’m not the only one. I was thinking the base headlights looked better without the led stripe. Still deciding between the black diamond and badlands. So I may end up with the upgraded ones. Depends on how the build pricing is.
