Just got back from the event myself and I thought it was pretty nice. Leather seemed fine and the electronics were really cool. It has a light system that allows you to pick and choose which sides of the vehicles you want lights to shine outside. Overall I was impressed but I will say the issue with the wavy soft top windows in the back were obvious and looked bad.

Perhaps. But I just couldn't stomach what a dog to drive my 2019 Tacoma TRD Off-Road was.

Life is too short.
This was a big deciding factor when I got my Jeep. Mind said practical, reliable 4Runner. Heart said Wrangler. Heart won.
The 4Runner is just SOOO boring to drive. Slow steering, mushy brakes, plain interior.

these were the seats in the one we got to see. Didn’t like the colors and they were cheap looking for sure. Maybe they were the vinyl? Not sure.

I saw about 5 Broncos at Silver Lake Sand Dunes a few weeks ago. Not a fan of the boxy body style and yes, the interior looked gimmicky and plastic added to the cheap look. The fender flares remind me of landscape edging. On the plus side the Broncos seemed to have good performance on the sand. Made me feel happier that I bought my Jeep seeing that I was going to hold out for the Bronco.
I feel the same way. Bronco had potential, but I'm glad I didn't wait for it.

Wow that’s pretty strange. This was the badlands model....do you remember which one you saw?

i like the exterior with a hard top. i really do. but the interior is just not cool. from the original released photo's of non production units it was just so nice looking. i popped over to the bronco forum and was looking at interior pics. it's just more of a letdown. it looks like a typical ford interior.

These are still pre-production Broncos. Ford is very intentional to slap that label on to all the Broncos they are trotting out in their social media road shows. Their disclaimer, a fair one, that they can still make changes to what they deliver. That said, what we are now seeing are probably very close to what Ford will actually be delivering to customers in the coming months(?).

This is the Outer Banks Navy Pier& Gray leather interior; I don't think vinyl is available for Outer Banks, either standard cloth or leather option. For those not familiar with Bronco trims, the Outer Banks is the Sahara competitor.

I will be seeing them here in Gilbert AZ tomorrow. I was all in for the Bronco originally, but going to pass for now. Too many compromises for me to order than over a Eco-Diesel Rubicon. I have not given up completely yet, and may order a Warthog version once its out unless the Ranger Raptor is released first. I know my new Rubicon will hold its value so can sell or trade in later if needed. Ill post some pictures and my thoughts of it tomorrow evening. (I do have a reservation still, and will hold on to it just in case).

Same thoughts. That and the constant delays pushed me over the edge. Ordered myself a JLUR Ecodiesel today. I moved my Bronco order to 22’. Might pick one up, might not. We’ll see. I have a feeling I’m really going to like the JLUR more for my uses though. Daily driver with occasional wheeling trips to Uwharrie, Windrock and maybe Rausch Creek + regular visits to the OBX. Am already planning a MOAB trip for next years EJS:rock:

I don’t know why anyone is expecting anything more than a Ford lackluster interior from them. They have always been behind with less than quality interior design. The only things that I currently like are the aluminum body and the upcoming SYNC 4 with the horizontal screen. There is a salt shed at my job and takes a toll on everyone’s vehicles.
As far as comparing the Jeep to the Bronco, most people just throw rims and tires on and call it a day. They will have no problem with the Bronco. Anyone looking to lift it is looking at a more expensive and complicated process compared to a Wrangler.

Thanks! In that case, it looks pretty cheap in person in my opinion. I appreciate the variety in interior options compared to the Wrangler. But this didn’t work for me.
