Why are you choosing 2 or 4 door Bronco? Which will have better resale value?

Checking the specs on 2 door vs the 4 on the Bronco, they seem fairly close. What are you choosing and why? Which do you think will hold value better? Thanks!!

Probably 2 door cuz:

Looks cooler to me.
Smaller footprint.
No kids.
Helps that it's less money.
Probably more zippy in combination with the v6.

Which holds value better? I dunno you're the finance director lol.

We live in a world where the 4-door SUV has become the norm so there's going to be more demand there.

Personally, I'm leaning strongly towards the 2-door. I prefer its proportions and lighter weight. It's more in the spirit of the original. We have people haulers in our family fleet so my personal daily generally doesn't have to be overly practical for kid duty. The only reason I'd move up to the 4-door is if my wife demanded it for more room to take road trips or something.

I do the finance but I don't do the values. I'm hearing all kinds of stuff on both. I figured I'd ask here and see what others are thinking. I was thinking the 2 door might be better off road but they're both pretty close in size.

I'm going 2-door. I like the looks and shorter wheelbase. I think I could get away with 33's on a 2-door if I decide not to do 35's.

I have kids (teens), but not too worried as we have a family hauler if we want all four of us to travel in more comfort.

As for value, I think I've seen more comments saying the 4-doors might be better for that. But I'm not too worried about that as I plan on keeping mine for a long time.

Thanks for the thoughts. I was all 4 door but this is going to be MY toy and if my husband wants in he can hug the bumper.

I want to keep mine too, but I wonder if a tree falls on it what kind of value I would get.

OK I'll play..
2 door: kids grown so just me and the wife, and don't need the extra room (note Raptor is an extended cab)
As for value: too many variables to determine in advance which would hold it's value better, though I would think the difference between 2 like Broncos with the only difference being the doors would be around 1K : not enough too worry about.
So get what you want and don't worry about.

not as many as I thought
I'm getting the 2 door.

Wait did I say 2 door, I meant 4 door, Yeah the 4 door.

100 percent I'm getting the 4 door with 2 doors, got it?

It is a dilemma.

I'm leaning to the 2 door because my parking area is tight and the 16" shorter will make a difference. Plus the 4 door isn't really that much bigger inside. 16"

Ultimately if I do go with the 2 door it is purely looks and fitting in my driveway. Capability wise each has a plus and minus but as a nod to the EB I'd get the 2.3 and manual.

If I get the 4 door it will be to fit my ski's inside and hopefully just enough room to sleep in. I ski a big fat ski, 78" tip to tail and 6.5" wide at the tip. Then, it's screw the EB and go with the 2.7 and auto.

When you decide let me know, I could use some help.
