I think the challenge will be durability.I'm still curious if there's going to be some goofy caveat that had to happen to make this a reality outside of price and fuel economy. Seeing how the current powertrain challenges a lot of the stock components as it is, it'll be interesting to see what else they've done to make this work.
Competition is great for buyers of both brands.True, but Jeep needs a budget-friendly power upgrade. The 2.7 V6 turbo in the standard Bronco for $1800 is an insane deal compared to anything in the Jeep lineup. If not the 5.7, Jeep needs to get the mythical I6 turbo to market ASAP.
I’m just curious if Jeep will start offering axle upgrades/lockers outside of the rubicon. That is probably the most appealing thing about the Bronco, my build is a base 4-door Bronco with Sasquatch (lockers F+R, billstein shocks, 35” tires and forged beadlock capable wheels, upgraded front axle) auto trans, hard top, V6 turbo, and it’s about $43k. You can get a rubicon wrangler for that price, but it’s gonna come with the 2.0 or 3.6 which on a day to day basis is a huge downside. If nothing else was done right on Bronco, Ford is storming out of the gate with a fantastic powertrain for a completely reasonable price. Which Jeep has lacked for the past 15 years.
Factory order it and use tread-lightly.Any chance the additional markups don't last long and we are able to get these below invoice? Or at least sticker? The launch edition gladiators also had outrageous markups for a few months after the release but look at them now .
You are the real MVP, sir. I will be watching closely.I’m sitting on all the photos and specs watch this space at 1101pm central on Monday night
That's my concern. I'm ok with waiting if I can get below invoice but if this is a limited production I'm ready to pay sticker now. I'm not ready to pay a 10k dealer markup lol.We don’t know anything yet...but don’t expect below MSRP pricing within the first six months of production. Furthermore the length of the run depends on whether grandpa Biden is able to control the senate and then accelerate CAFE standards or decrease the gas guzzler tax threshold. This is probably a one year and done scenario....FCA is already buying credits from Tesla....I assure you that will factor into the price.
