Did u get to sit on the MGV? If like to know if it has a sticky feel to it or smooth like the leather?
Did not get to sit in it but the MGV has a soft leather like feel to it and when you give it a squeeze it feels real similar to my leather in the King Ranch . It does have a more tauntly stretched feel than leather but far greater quality than the fake( MB-Tex) leather the wifes past two Mercedes have had . The Mercedes leans more to the feel of old style vinyl where the MGV is very close to real leather .

The Gloss painted grill and mirror caps on the WT would have to go if I went that route . Those are easily painted whatever you want though . You can option the front modular bumper but I just can't live with that huge flat piece of crap rear plastic bumper :( FORD just doesn't want anyone to have the perfect Bronco it seems .

Decided for shits and grins to go back and review my build costs in the B&P after Ford made the recent changes. The builds I've been comparing have been the following:

- WildTrak
- Badlands squatched
- Badlands non-squatched with upgraded wheels and 33" AT BFG's
- OBX squatched

all are optioned similarly with lux package, aux switches and MIC tops.

With the badlands increasing in price by $1,595 for the 10 spd. auto, it is interestingly now showing the following price differentials to the WildTrak:

- Badlands squatched +$1,970
- Badlands non-squatched. +$470
- OBX squatched +$550

The auto swaybar disco isn't worth $1,970
And for $470 less, I'll take the full squatch of the WT
And if the OBX was $550 less, I might be tempted, but definitely not paying $550 more.

WildTrak it is...assuming the costs in the B&P hold up.
Here is my math on the 3 builds, all Squatched, Lux group, duel tops, trailer tow, leather seats, 2.7 auto, I did leave steel bumpers off Wildtrak and Outer Banks but put aux switches in all three.

Outer Banks $59,110
Badlands $61,850 (Drops to $57,160 if tweeked)
Wildtrak $59,225

The problem is I don't like the interiors on the Outer Banks or the Wildtrak so if I take off the Badlands leather and go with MGV it drops to $59,665 and if I drop Squatch and go with stock wheels and free 4.7 axle it drops further to $57,160 so Badlands becomes a no brainer. The badlands base suspension is already bad ass and I can always add 35 inch tires later. And I have steel bumper and bash plates standard on Badlands so again it's a no brainer.

I love how everyone is posting Bronco trim costs according to how they'd build it. Seems silly b/c No matter how you slice it,

-- every non OBX trim & spec w/2.7L got $1595 more expensive relative to WILDTRAK!

I was set on 4Dr Badlands 2.7L which was pushing my price sensitivity zone. Never considered a Wildtrak before, but now I am.

Well I am pretty close on this one.

Badlands 2 door squatch, 2.7 auto, MGV, Lux, Cyber ?, mats, hitch $56,010
Wildtrak 2 door, Lux, leather, Cyber ?, mats, hitch, tube step
$56,005

super sweet off road machine vs super sweet cruiser with leather. Both more capable than me, probably only keep until the Warthog comes out if I like it, or if I miss my Raptor I will trade into the new one in 2022.

You need to make sure you match all features So its really apples to apples.

I have been doing the exact same thing and my pricing is very close Between the 3.

OB / BL / WT. 2 door

All have
2.7
10 speed auto
sasquach
MIC top
Advanced 4x4
High package
Heavy Duty Bumper
Bash plates
Aux Switches
floor mats

Note: must add those to get to similar specs Due to each having different standard items.

OBX - $50610
Badlands: $52525
Wildtracks: $50755

Differences
OBX: cloth seats, carpeted floor
Badlands: Marine Vinyl, rubber floor with drains, disco bar, rear steel bumper and (possibly rock rails unclear)
Wildtracks: cloth seats, carpeted floor

So badlands is a little under $2k with similar available specs more BUT has the disconnect bar, MGV and the washout floor. Those are probably worth 2k to me. Honestly dont really care about the disconnect for my uses but like the MGV and rubber floor. Also probably like interior color more in badlands.

Also I will probably not squach mine so it would be $50030 for badlands with above specs minus sas.
I must have a different B&P. With those same options I get $55,715 for the BL and $53,250 for the WT - both prices include the destination charge. I wonder if I'm making a mistake somewhere.

EDIT - Silly me, I spec'ed it as a 4 dr not a 2 dr. Nevermind.

How many cars have you owned where the dash is not black?

So the navy pier dash on the outerbanks is the next darkest dash to black available on the Bronco.
I don’t understand your point. I don’t like the Navy Pier dash of the OBX. I don’t like it enough and I want MGV enough that I’m willing to bail on OBX all together and get the BL even though I don’t need the disco. That was what I was getting at.

I stand corrected. I should have said every trim worth buying! ?. Seriously, OBX is the only trim I have not played with ? times in B&P. Body colored fenders and mirrors ruled that out for me from the get go.

If I could get only a soft top for the WT, my decision would already be made. Hard top and apartment living isn't going to cut it.

My point is Navy Pier dash is closes to black. The other trims have light colored dashes and I suspect it will reflect light like crazy. This is why most Vehicles dashes are black to adsorb light and not reflect it.

I don’t understand your point. I don’t like the Navy Pier dash of the OBX. I don’t like it enough and I want MGV enough that I’m willing to bail on OBX all together and get the BL even though I don’t need the disco. That was what I was getting at.

All of you are forgetting the steel rear bumper on BL. This is not gettable on the WT or the OBX unless you buy a takeoff later).

So they main differences are Steel rear bumper and sway bar disco. This is without considering MGV (vs cloth), washout floors, carb grey grill vs gloss black, MIC black mirror caps vs gloss black, MIC black door handles vs body color.

Comes down to needs and personal preference.

Edit, was typing this as @BroncoBoy22 was the first to mention this. Just surprised it took 15 posts for someone to call out this major difference.
I think the Ford steel bumpers are boring and ugly. I wouldn't pay extra for them. I'll wait until after market.
