and cold air does what? I want an actual engineering, design or cost reason for their location being the floor, where they are susceptible to the elements vs the console
Why, who are you, that's a bit demanding, isn't itl?
I think cooled air would best be served directly through the front vents instead of passing through a warmed plastic winding narrow channel, finally escaping through the pre-warmed console, but that's just my opinion...
It's an SUV, not a minivan, jeez!

That may be true. Just not sure what is in the center console that would preclude the curving the vents under the seat and into the console. Nether did the Ford guys... Maybe instead of a trunk monkey, we get a center console monkey!!!
The console isn't really very big. You have the trans selector, storage bin, mirror controls and window switches on both front and rear. Pretty sure there's also AC and USB on the back end. That doesn't leave much room.

Honestly I think the cab is small enough that you don't really need the back sent vents. Especially if you're ridin dirty (with the top and doors off).
Riding with the top off is one thing, but driving around phoenix in July? The hottest place on the planet is the back seat of an SUV with inadequate ventilation. I will be modifying that myself.

Another thought: if it has a strong fan, won't a floor vent just blow the dirt from the floor all over the interior?

Vents on the floor for a washable floor? How stinky with these vents get when water is trapped in there? Yikes.

What are the odds that the Bronco carpeted floor mats would fit over the rubber washout floor so I can have the best of both worlds and takes them out when I feel like getting dirty?

In the confined space of a small car you don't really need vents in the rear, the entire space cools/heats rapidly. My Mazda6 has rear floor vents like this, and it stays comfortable back there -- hardly something to scream about.

Lastly, doesn't the FE badge under my name look like underwear?
That is not an experience I am familiar with, so that is a valid point sir.

I also read that the rear windows are removable on some of the hard tops so there is always the option of a window AC unit. I've seen it at Walmart.

So, has anyone thought about the heat that will radiate through the rubberized flooring vs. a model that's carpeted? Has Ford addressed this concern? I would imagine that the carpet would insulate that radiating heat into the cabin better. I'd like the washout floors but, being in Texas, it's always hot and I don't want to add heat that will come from beneath the floor.

Honestly, those controls should have been in the front below the screen, thus creating enough room for rear console vents.

Ok, Ford, I'll bill you my consulting fees for fixing the problem...
The front switches wouldn't affect anything, it'd be the back ones if anything.
