That push bar looks really stupid. It covers up the BRONCO name!
Agreed. They should’ve made the bullbar out of plastic for transparency. /s

Bullbars like that are just for looks. Its basically a damage multiplier. It should be shorter and come up just to the bottom of the Bronco name. A design like that would probably also make it stronger.

Thanks, Im a lifelong Land Cruiser fanatic, and Ive been yearning for a convertible off roader besides a jeep since my FJ40 days. The Bronco does it for me and I plan to sell both my LC and Excursion to get one.

These Pictures are from MY town. I better get out there and see what I can find. I'll certainly post if I can spot and Grab Pics of these things in the wild.

Automakers come here for testing. Even some boat makers on our lake too. We are ~9,000 feet MSL, so it lets them altitude test / stress test new vehicles (I guess). Lots of Camo and Michigan plates on a year round basis, but I spotted a black bronco yesterday as I crossed an intersection. These pics are from the Hampton Inn / Mountain Sports Outlet.
So I drove by the hotel last night, and saw 1 black test mule surrounded by RAM pickups in Full Camo in the back parking lot. I got to take a sneak peak at the Bronco, but all the engineers were wrapping up their day, so I didn’t bother them too much. The opportunity for better pictures than already posted did not present, but I’ll keep trying.

I think the yellow 2dr thats in the reveal and promo shots has the smaller bar with a light bar on it. That's the one I'd get as it keeps the "BRONCO" visible.

Cactus grey looks amazing. Seeing it in the sun and a video keeps solidifying my choice. Looks great. I'd only change to a black hard top. I don't know why Ford went with a gray. It just looks like a faded black top...

Thanks for the videos! It shows the seat folded flat, that you can remove the roof panels without taking out the roof rack, cargo space for the 4 door.
Curious how the sound will be with the cross braces and the roof off

Curious how possible it is to remove that second row panel with the rails in place. I get how the front 2 panels could easily slide out the sides, but not sure there's enough room for the full width panel to come out under the rails - might be why it's simply detached and not removed in the video.
According to Ford specs is only rated for a dynamic load of 110 pounds. No roof top tent potential like I’m dreaming of....😩

Ford confirmed in Q&A you can’t remove roof panels over 2nd row with roof rack. damn!!

Q: Will there be a roof rack system that allows total roof removal?
A: Our roof rack is designed to allow the 2 front row panels to be removed on the 4-door Bronco, and the 2 front row roof panels on the 2-door Bronco to be removed with the roof rack in place.

The photo looks like you can take of the 2nd row panel for the 4 door, though. So I don't get that.

There’s not as much room between the roof and rails as you think
