Japanese car/SUV unfortunately
Potato - Potato... Its all irrelevant until we know what is included or different between the trims. I expect interior color availability differences, potential touch point material differences, etc. Maybe it is as simple as you are getting a small price break for buying the pre configured WT with the features as opposed to adding the options onto the BL. Regardless what the heck does it matter, people buy what you like and for the purpose you envision for the vehicle. No reason to throw poo at our forum members over a stinking trim option. Daily reminder of why I hate the internet, social media, forums...
no flak given on my part. I reserved a wildtrak from the beginning. I am just explaining my internal dilemma/diologue and why I am switching to BL....the more we learn about the different models, the moreI realize BL has more value for what I want. Now if Ford releases more info showing that WT is truly different and has unique physical features/capabilities, then I may switch back....heck I can’t even decide on color, top, MT vs AT yet at this point.

my only complaint is with Ford for either not making this a true competitor to the Mojave line (granted it will probably do ok with IFS vs SFA...but still needs more than all the other models) OR if it does, Ford should clarify and make a lot of us who want that, happy.

I am good with however anyone else wants to spend their money and how they want to use this beautiful machine. From malls to desert dunes to rock climbing, it’s all good

Ford has marketed the Badlands as equivelant to the Rubicon. Most Rubicon's never see trails that used it's features and the Badlands will be the same way. People buy Rubicon's just to be seen driving a Rubicon.
I bought my Rubicon to post pictures of it on the Bronco site. 😆

1. Appears the Wildtrak has the modular front bumper available but not an option for rear steel bumper like the BL. I'm sure aftermarket will have something, but who knows when and what it'll look like.

Ford’s website mentions rear steel bumper under the option for modular front bumper. Who knows if the rear is included though.

But then there is this that shows plastic front/rear bumpers but the front modular bumper being an option, no mention of steel rear whereas the BL does mention it specifically. The steel rear bumper isn't going to fall under the front modular bumper option, if anything it would be a separate option if people didn't want the rear bumper and therefor Ford could make more $.

Haha their rockstars(interns) don’t know how to QAQC. It will look odd having a steel front and plastic rear bumper.

Does anyone else find it odd that the highest Bronco trim level (available to reserve anyway) isn't the showcase Bronco that is being shown off all over the place?

Is there a chance that Ford is waiting until the last minute to drop what the Wildtrak really could be? Could it be the "Raptor" version that everyone wants to see?

Maybe the most recent photos are of a Wildtrak that is lurking behind the scenes, waiting for Ford to let it out of it's cage.

Probably not, but I cannot come up with any other reason the Wildtrak would exist otherwise. Surely Ford has something special, other than just sport mode, that has not been revealed yet about the Wildtrak... I can hope anyway.
It's priced at the top because it comes with a 2.7/10A with Sasquatch standard. That's really about it. It's an OB with standard equipment that's otherwise optional. Maybe specifically tuned shocks, but idk.

It also has the Advanced 4x4, Baja GOAT, and black modular hard top. It does not have the body-color handles, mirror caps, and flares which to me is a bonus. But the same would happen if you sasquatched a OB with the flares.

No problem for me, the third bay in the garage is reserved for my new Bronco. Lol
I wish I had a 3rd garage bay. I haven't quite figured out how that is going to work. I couldn't convince myself to get rid of the STI so I'll be stuck with 3 cars.
