Looks like a BMW key I used to have. I wonder if ford uses the same vendor.

It has keyless entry and start. No keyholes anywhere on the doors.

The only keyhole I see is on the center armrest and glove box.
Keyless go means push to start not unlocking the door with the physical key in hole

I wouldve liked something a little more rugged. I have always liked the JL Wrangler Key.

Also I think since this is the return of such a special vehicle, Ford should have made a fob that stands out from Mustang, F-Series, Etc.

Looks pretty nice but they should have put the bronco horse on it instead of the word bronco I think

A wristband would be a nice option like the Jaguar activity wristband. For all of those hunting, fishing, climbing, leave all in the car and just bring your wristband.

As long as it’s as big as an ‘80s cell phone ...

I use my phone anyway. I'll just get the package that has connection and keep fob in pocket.

Yes, it has keyless.
All new Broncos are keyless entry.

Keyless entry and keyless go are not the same thing.

base models do not have keyless go.

that means you have to stick the key somewhere to start it.

The door is irrelevant. You will not need stick the key in the door to open it on any model.

I will admit to being wrong. I have never used the term keyless-go before and i could have sworn i saw it on the ford website. The attached picture first line is what i actually saw the requires the mid package

i apologize

There are keyholes on the door handles.

You don't have to stick the key anywhere to start it - it has a push button start.


All models come with push button start and keyless entry. The difference is "intelligent access", which comes with the Mid Package - this is your setup that lets you lock/unlock the vehicle from the handle without having to touch the key (you can see the black rectangle on the left side of the handle in the photo above). Models without that have to lock/unlock the car with the fob, but start the vehicle without a key in an ignition.

Thanks. I was worried that some access would be needed if the fob battery died. Haven't see where they put the keyhole, but it blends well.
Our CRV has the intelligent access feature and is becoming common with automakers to add it. The only thing I need to fob in my hand for is remote start. All other access is fob-free. Just have to have it in my pocket.

People complain about the sheer size of the Jeep's fob (and it really is massive).

In my mind, the smaller the better. You won't be caring about it too much when you're finally driving it.
