I’m just thinking how much easier U-Turns would be. :)

Probably not the best idea. I don’t think I will ever use this option as I will never be in the sand. I used to go in the mud a lot and to me it’s like sand, it gets everywhere. I am older now and don’t enjoy cleaning up anymore.

This is nothing new. My 1984 Ford 1710 tractor has cutting brakes - separate pedal for left and right rear brake. Cut the wheel left, hit the left brake, boom it spins around in almost its own footprint. The 2021 Bronco likely automates that same thing. With the tractor, do it on grass/dirt/mud, no issue. Do it on the paved driveway and you'll see expensive chunks of tire when you are done.

Follow up to my own post - the other option is to wait for a rainy or icy night, go to an intersection, lock the rear axle, turn left or right and hit the gas. You'll go around in a very tight circle!

Let us know when you snap the axles and they deny your warranty claim.
Waiting for the first issue of that to happen. However, maybe this is the reason that they aren't putting cupholders in the back.

I'm thinking I saw somewhere it's only available in 4wd. I could be wrong though. If that's the case, I wouldn't use it on pavement.

Bummer, I didn't know this until now.
Does anyone know the reasoning behind this?
Not sure. Just going by what Ford says.

Someone was weighing whether they wanted the MT or TTA more, and I pointed out they’ll use the trail turn and enjoy it everyone once in a while, and probably never after a short time.

The MT theyll use abs enjoy every time they go for a drive.
