I would wager it's a thermometer. Checking radiator efficiency under load or something like that.

That would be a really dumb place for a winch.
unless that is where you put the winch hook lol.prolly is a temp sensor

In other threads i've seen people complain about build quality on the bumpers etc. The reason they bumpers were not aligned is they are actuaally testing the new bronco.

I'm happy to see it. Simulations are worthelss, nothing like real world testing.

These are actually different Broncos! :love: The black 4 doors at the hotel were the Outer Banks. Awesome!
They look like OB's but I'm thinking they were Wildtrak's. They each have the same grill, but the OB doesn't have turn signals in the side mirrors. Unless there's something more definitive? Cheers

No they were OB's as that is the only trim that we know comes with painted flares. I'm also assuming the side mirror turn signals will be on the OB's either standard or as an option, because those 4 door bronco's at the hotel looked just like this except black.

Also the Wildtrak comes with Sasquatch standard so that means 35s and the high clearance fender flares that are also wider than the regular flares. So those 4 doors would have looked beefy just like the 2 door if they were Wildtraks.

Good points ... hope they do add the signals in the mirrors but don't see them in the current specs online. Switching the larger wheels/tires for a different kind of driving would be kind of easy to do for testing 🤷‍♂️

Yeah I'm sure the signals will at least be an option on the high or lux trims. Yes you're right they could have switched the 35s on the Wildtrak for smaller tires, but they would have also had to switch out the Sasquatch wide flares(right) for the Outer Banks painted flares(left). Which is alot of work to make the Wildtrak look like an OB for testing, when they could have...yanno.. just used an OB lol 🤷‍♂️

So are these OB models or BL? Those wheels look nice and the stance isn't bad vs the Sasquatch...any idea of you can get the higher clearance suspension as an option without the Sasquatch package?

This one on the left is a Badlands with 33s. I'm not sure what the one on the right is, maybe a Wildtrak? As far as I know the high clearance suspension is only on the Sasquatch, but there will be a 2inch lift Ford will offer as an accessory.

An OB is very different from these. It has painted flares and mild tires.

Not the correct bumper for a Badlands but who is to say any of these are production correct.

Correct on both counts. Yeah I'm pretty sure except for the two-door at the hotel all of these testers have had this bumper with the fog lights, regardless if the production trim has them or not.

its like being a porn star, looks good to the audience, but the actors spend 2 minutes having fun and 4 hours resetting.
I had a job as a video game tester for a year. It’s still pretty amazing but after a while it drives you crazy. I quit after a year cuz I couldn’t take it anymore.

You don’t actually play a gameyou try to break it for 8-12 hours a day 5-6 days a week. It gets old after a while. And when you close your eyes at night you still see the game in your eye lids.

No different from factory work. I used to push a button to make a robot weld a treadmill frame, then a air table would spin a hot one out. Id unhook it, pry it out, and lift it away, spend 1.5 minutes putting new panels in, clamp it down. Tap it with a hammer in 12 places and push the button again. Process took 3:45 seconds. I would wake up dreaming hearing the robot shut down and sit right up in bed and reach for the hammer. Repetition can be a nightmare.
