Ford really did it nail it with these. I would LOVE a 2 door with the Sasquatch package. As someone else said, that thing will absolutely kill it off-road.

Generally not a Ford guy, but man, this is awesome!

The new Wrangler is a pretty solid effort too, but this thing is even cooler.

I was hoping the manual was available with the bigger engine.

Why could there be a 5th seat belt in the 2 door (I known, narrow, wheel wells)

I love the 2 door, I may get one anyway (3 kids), but that 5th seat belt would guarantee it.

But it's funny

Sort of want. I'm looking to get out of my Ram 2500 in the next year or two in favor of an SUV of some sort. I no longer have a need for a HD truck and I think an SUV would be more useful for my normal use..., mostly commute to work, sometimes mild offroading to get to backpacking areas.

I'm leaning towards something like a Jeep GC..., which is going to be all new in 2021..., so waiting to see what that has in store as well.

The 392 Durango also has my interest but it's huge and bigger than I really want/need.

Im sure a Raptor version will come out evenutally. If the 2.7L turbo fits then the 3.5L turbo would be an easy fit. Maybe even the 3.5L with the new hybrid setup for the next gen F150.

Hmm looking through all the packages it seems the Black Diamond package would suit my needs. Going to have to watch this one.

100% the reception from everyone even those like myself who don't care for Ford is incredibly positive. Chevy must really be kicking themselves now with what they did to the Blazer

I hope so. I'm probably going to get a raptor for towing and as a dd in a couple years.
If this bronco has that same capacity in a slightly smaller package- it's a no brainer.

it won’t have the tow rating of the raptor and the raptor doesn’t have the tow rating of the f150

suspension and tires are the limiting factors (wheelbase in some cases)

8-10k is all I need, nothing crazy.

I read the Bronco is rated for 3500

the raptor is 6000-8000

I have towed 10,000 with my raptor once, for a short distance, I won’t do it again

Uh oh. Adaptive Cruise Control is an option on mid-to-high trim levels. Now it's in contention. Any off-road focused vehicle is TOTALLY the wrong vehicle for me, but I do really like the looks and it's within budget. [shows the Bronco my fingers in the form of the cross] The M340i frontrunner in my 'next car battle' is getting new competition!

I like it a lot, wish Toyota would follow suit with an FJ Cruiser replacement. Having said that, I can imagine the dealer mark ups on the Broncos will be crazy in the beginning. Well played!
