What sort of weird things are you cross shopping the bronco with?

I'm looking at another car in probably 2 years and the two my wife and I are looking at the closest are the Bronco and the Tesla Model 3 Long Range and we keep flipping back and forth over which one we prefer.

Those are my current considerations. Broncos likely out for me for the moment and it’ll be one of these options, with a future bronco mall crawler down the road. Durango SRT currently has top spot for me, only problem there is if I get the Yukon or Durango it’ll likely go to my fiancé in a couple years(which would be my next opportunity to get a bronco) and she likes the Yukon better. Now if Jeep put the 392 in the gladiator I’d probably buy it. Course even if they did that’s unlikely to happen before I buy another vehicle since they only just put it in the wrangler, and I also doubt they’d make it manual trans like I would really want. Unfortunately none of these options are manual trans either(yes gladiator has manual trans option but then tow cap cuts almost in half; which won’t work for me and is the reason broncos out for me til later), but it is what it is. Will be the only vehicle I own with auto(will be selling/trading my only current auto vehicle for whatever I get next). Any bronco I get will def be manual trans though.

I also really want a GT350 because who knows if Ford will sell a real Shelby again (sorry, the 500 is just a competitor for Hellcat, and although it’s a beast, it’s not that exciting to me.)

That’s really all I’m shopping, unless the 4xe somehow sells for $10k or more less than current offerings (impossible.)
I'm also interested in the Heritage edition of the outgoing GT350. Much more exciting than the new Mach 1

I'm all over the place.

I keep looking at the Ford F-150 (with Tremor package now that's been announced), Ram Rebel, Gladiator, Durango, Defender (until I priced it out and saw all the issues/high maintenance costs)

If the F150 Tremor can be had with the hybrid drive train i'm probably going that route instead.
It can’t, at least not for 2021. It’s disappointing to only have a 5.5ft bed.

Had previously only considered the Bronco for my next vehicle (4dr, Squatched 2.7 BL). However, with my build now slipping well into 2022 the Rivian (R1T 400+) is coming into play. It would easily go on all the same off-road routes that I would take the Bronco on and actually be a better bike hauler. As configured, it would cost more than the Bronco, but that isn't the main deciding factor. I would miss the removable roof a bit but really like the idea of an EV.

Ordered a '21 F-150 Lariat and have a built Bronco Sport on the train now, so I may be canceling the Bronco. I'm holding out to see what Ford changes makes in the next months.

Lost my taste for Subarus! Oil change prices TOO much!

Hmm, just waiting for the 2022 Raptor or Warthog release. I still have my sights on a BL or BD. May pick up a 21 Crosstrek with 6spd manual as a commuter. My office is at 7,600 ft.

I'm all over the place, too. I have a 2011 Outback that I'm just bored with. It could easily go another 100K ... but I just need something new. Current list that makes ZERO sense:

- Broncos Badlands (reserved)
- 110 Defender
- Telsa Model Y
- Audi A5/A6 or a pre-owned A7
- Re-designed Grand Cherokee?
- Re-designed four-runner?
- Would love a signature Land Cruiser, but I can't justify 95K for it (the Defender will be pushing it too, but we'll see)

Other current car is a 2017 Volvo XC90 that will be paid off in August.

I've got a handful the wife and I are considering:

1) 2022 Redesigned Grand Cherokee
2)Tesla Model Y or possibly the Cybertruck
3)Genesis GV70
4)Kia Telluride
5)If Toyota releases a heavily re-designed/updated 4runner then we may consider

If we go with a non-EV car this time I think it'll be our last gas-powered vehicle. Lots of promising EV cars in the pipeline over the next 3-5 years. In 5 years time it may be common for batteries to last 500+ miles on a charge. That would probably be the tipping point for most.

4) i’d like to see the stinger motor in this.
5) i’d like to see a turbo v6 in this with a better transmission. I heard the next gen sequoia will get a turbo v6(possible hybrid).

4) I agree. I've read quite a bit about the telluride and there seems to be one common "complaint" with it not having enough power. I also want to see a full-digital instrument display.
5) Also agree. The whole interior needs a complete rehaul, too. It very much looks like it's age in every way.
