Whoop whoop. Knew be a matter of time! Can’t wait to see what comes out of this! These guys driving are def putting in some serious miles!! 🏜🛣 Go get it boys!! Ford make off roaders out of those guys behind the wheel soon enough!

Be epic see these guys and those Broncos posted up at the Top of the World!! Hope they do the 3D trail as well when I was in Moab few years ago it was a great all around trail in my opinion! Had it all. Ups, downs, slick rock, Sand, & dirt!
And they left the Jeep Rubican behind

Canyonlands has the Elephant Hill Trail I would like to tackle someday in the future, as that area is just stunning, went hiking and backpacking there.
Must be pretty hot out there right now, we always went in spring or late autumn.

No, this is EXACTLY what they should do. Or, anywhere with wide open expanses of desert running.

This is where the IFS Bronco would excel at and beat the Jeep, no doubt. They need to take these three to Baja and do some hardcore, high speed desert running, with smaller-sized rock gardens, similar to what they did in the launch video, just more of it.

That's where the Bronco shines and it would literally leave Jeeps in the dust.
I expect they won't, but if they did make it a little further north my vote would be Idaho's St. Anthony Sand Dunes. What I wouldn't give to run a new Bronco on those dunes.

For old times' sake:

Someone needs to tell the Jeeps in that hypothetical desert that it’s a race. They even have bumper stickers saying that if it was meant to go fast, it wouldn’t be shaped like a brick. lol IOW, bombing through the desert at a high speed isn’t typically their thing.

It depends on your priorities and if the benefits each has over the other is more important.

I completely agree! Ride 'em hard. I also agree with @Natai, would love some sort of trip report. Even if they can't tell us what broke, at least what did they "learn".
Well, we did learn that they do make COOL SCRAPEY NOISES!

this is all a part of testing it. hit every big off roading place to make sure it's built tough. and i'm sure they will make it to california or new mexico soon for baja style/higher speed off road testing.
Curious if the support rigs are still following them too.

I like the Bronco and I think Ford did a great job....but I’m the boomer that parks at the end of the parking lot avoiding a door ding, so I don’t think I would be rock climbing inches from a boulder...lol.

That being said, I enjoy learning about the lifestyle and tracking the test Broncos out West. I’m waiting for this to turn into something like deadheads going from concert to concert....ha.
EDIT: "...but I’m the boomer that parks at the end of the parking lot to get in a few extra steps ..."
