And now they will ! 2022 JLs will be interesting, maybe 2021 will give us more JL 2 door improvements as well.
The rubberized interior, vinyl seats, modular rear hard top windows, manual transmission with the 2.0T, bring it !

Pretty impressive IMO, 400 ft lbs of torque would be nice on my JL :) 10 spd AT also a big plus although the JL AT is one of the best I've driven.
Pretty cool running 35s from the factory w/ a 10 spd that you could use all the gears out of the box!
Only the 2 dr looks proper though, at least to me, and a 12" info screen, wow!

Looks very formidable....Will be very interesting see it in person and take a test drive. Lot's to like but still IFS...I am glad to see they are offering a 2-door model-will force Jeep to show a little more love to 'the one who started it all'.

Jeep has known the Bronco has been coming for a long time and I doubt there is anything they did not already know about. Which would lead one to believe Jeep will respond pretty quickly via a mid-model refresh along with additional power options and of course a 35" tire option on 2-door's and a 37" option on 4-door's...

I want to know how the tops and doors come off. Why would they not include that?

Great debut Ford. Exceeded all my expectations. Love the interior; screen is going to look fantastic. Power seats as well?! I can’t believe Wrangler still has manual seats. What was the excuse again?

Competition has finally come to this segment. Hopefully other manufacturers join soon.

Lmao, it’s got power seats guys, wrangler killer. This Jeep is the first vehicle I’ve had since the 90s that doesn’t have power seats and it’s a non issue. Quicker to move It forward and back depending if my wife or I am driving.

Am I the only person who hates power seats?. whats so bad about manual seats?. Power seats are so damn slow. Manual seats are way easier and faster.

Power seats are not that important, but seat memory is the game changer if you switch drivers so often.

Not once have I said I wish the Jeep had power seats. If that’s a stance someone has to take to make the bronco look like the better vehicle they’re reaching to far.

I wouldn't be surprised if Ford offers special financing deals to Wrangler owners who trade in for the Bronco. They are definitely looking to steal customers from Jeep.

Pretty much a non-event for me. After buying it.....I set my seat and forget it. Never need further adjustments.

The real deal will be a toe-to-toe matchup on a known tough trail.....like the Rubicon trail. Might change some views. ....or not.

Love it. If the electronics (nav/radio) are good and steering is good a 2door is in the future. Jeep has a problem if they don’t honor warranty complaints. I think the biggest problem is independent dealerships.
