It seems like a lot of people want more Base features but often don't mention increasing the cost of the vehicle to support those features.

I don’t think anyone has stated they should be free but most should have been standard. The items listed in this thread outside of maybe heated seats are amongst the cheapest things Ford could add to the vehicle. They could have added 2-3 hundred dollars and still made a profit on adding 90% of that stuff. It was held back purposely to diminish the base models appeal and push people to the BB so they add the mid package. They just added that stuff so it looks like you got extra value. Two of the things are seriously internal lights lol. Since when is footwell lighting an upgrade? I’m fairly certain my wife’s Cruze has that and the lighted visors and I paid 13K for that car.

You’re grateful the Bronco doesn’t ship with footwell lighting, 120V outlet, auto dimming rear view mirror, remote start, dual zone climate control, illuminated visor mirrors and the ability to unlock your door without touching your key?

You realize this is like standard on most cars right? This isn’t ground breaking stuff. The only thing that’s usually an add on is heated seats. It’s a couple of lights, a dimming mirror, an outlet, the ability to control your climate in your car, an unlock feature and remote start. So high tech.
Yes, very grateful, because I do not want this and I'd be paying a higher base price if that stuff was included for "free".

I had an '84 Cavalier that had lighted visors. I just assumed that was standard on every single car/truck. 36 years later, it requires a buyer to move up a trim to have the opportunity to purchase the option.

It’s all about profit, it has nothing to do with value. If they wanted to include some of those and charge you the same amount they could have, it’s all marketing to get you to pay more for simple items.

If you like getting less for more, to each their own.

Exactly lol. Some of these items are legitimate upgrades, some not.

Some people don't understand there's no free ride.

Waste of time to wish for stuff that could have or should have...
If I'm satisfied with what I can build when B&P comes out, I'll buy it. If not, I'll move on and not blame Ford one bit.

I literally don't need any of that.

And if you're the only person driving your vehicle, you don't even need power seats.
