Agreed, it's all based on intended usage. We were putting in almost 700 miles every weekend in a six speed manual (I was the driver). I am incredibly excited to get the lux package and be able to sit back and let the vehicle do the boring stretches of the highways here in Washington. I couldn't be more excited for the Bronco - we'll see if the tech mixes well with the offroading capabilities. So, for us - the base doesn't make sense. Honestly, I'd seriously consider the BD if they offered more tech options.

Why don't people consider base with sasquatch and modular bumper comes with bash plates. And get brush gaurd and rock rails for like 37500. You will have a badass off-road machine.
cloth interior only, limited color choices, only standard package.

I'm really leaning towards the base now. I really only want remote start & heated seats, but it isn't worth it to me to pay almost $6000 more to jump up to a Big Bend and add the mid package. If remote start is available for all models via FordPass then I might just go base and add some third party seat heaters from Amazon for like $100. Might even jump up to the V6 with the money I'd save.

There is a place in PA called Rausch Creek that you can go off-roading. But it is a 3 hour drive from me. Not very practical for frequent fun. It has to be a planned in advance trip since you have to make reservations.
I live 1.5 hours away. Is it a good place to fool around in a 15 year 200k mile old honda pilot. Do you need buddies to be allowed on the trails? What happens if the car dies or gets stuck?

One question bouncing around in my head; do the lack of G.O.A.T. modes compared to the BD really mean that much to me?
I've never done much off-roading in the past, but have recently caught the bug, so I'm not going to hesitate taking it to the local off road park. I'll be mostly trail riding, and maybe some rock crawling, will the G.O.A.T. modes make that big of a difference?
I think I can get by without them. Just engage/disengage traction control, drive mode, lockers as I please.

One purchase for me, buy once cry once, enjoy into retirement.
I want the high def instrument panel graphics, I want the large screen, I want the MCV seats. I want those things so I also get the signature lights and disco. Badlands for me and I hope the expensive Broncos are built earlier than,,,, well you know.
Thats what the gt500 is for

I'd like to to know if they're going to have bumper extensions for the front or a whole new bumper setup for the sasquatch package. I'm definitely wanting a basesquatch but man those fender flares have got to go lmao.

I’ve gone back and forth. I’ve been BD non-squatch with some minor accessory upgrades since B&P was released. But the last couple days I’ve moved to a Base Squatch with the same upgrades for cheaper than what my BD build was. The Base Squatch is an insane deal. I’m more of a basic camper looking to get into some overlanding and simple off-roading. Can I do that with the BD non-squatch? Yeah, but Jesus the Squatch just looks so much better. Will I use it to its full potential? Rarely. But for the price, the Base Squatch is hard to pass up.

Base squatch looks like a great deal.
Building Base with only sasquatch it comes to 35,785, not bad for such a great off road beast.
Not sure why the B&P charges 5,790 for the 4,995 sasquatch package addition?
Is that because it automatically adds the automatic transmission and automatic 4x4?
Fingers crossed that when the mansquatch is available the additional 795 is gone.
Under 35,000 for all that!
How sweet would that be?

You can download the Fordpass app on your phone, and connect it to your car by putting in you vin # and whatnot. Once your car and phone are connected you can do all sorts of things with the app, including remote start, lock/unlock, check oil levels, tire pressure, vehicle location etc.

The remote start you pay for with the mid pkg, is on your keyfob. Which is cool, but not a total deal breaker without it because of Fordpass.

To add to that... people don't realize how much is actually included in the Base. Sneaky stuff that you might have to dig to find
The app is nice because if you're like me and second guess if you locked your truck once you're inside a restaurant you can just remotely lock it through the app and distance is not a concern. The basic functions are right on the main page. Plus the ability to set up scheduled starts is a nice feature too.

I'm thinking the same thing now. I thought I was set on a BD non SAS with the mid package and a few other options,I really want the high package though. So just for the heck of it I built a Base with SAS and a few options and I think it looks killer!

My thought now is if I can't get everything I want (High package) with the BD then I might just keep my Ranger for my DD (which is a Lariat fully loaded) and now go Base SAS. I hate the thought of cloth seats here in the dusty desert but with the savings I could still get Katzkins and still be thousands cheaper and have the SAS! With the Granger Ford October discount I'm coming out at $34,066 for the Base SAS opposed to the BD non SAS at $38,828. I'm really glad mine will be a MY22 so I can see these in person next year. Now if Ford decides to add more packages then all bets are off and I'm screwed and right back to square one. 😂
