Order up the Wildtrack version that starts out @ 47,000.00 then take it out and beat it off some rocks or trees.

Pretty sharp vehicle,the new Bronco. I have now seen 3 negotiating the Walmart and Target badlands.

Got to tear up the trails around Boulder NV with this thing over Xmas. Buddy down there is big into buggies and rails.

3 words....
O M G

200+ hp (it's not stock, he said 230hp I believe, but I don't remember, felt like 400...lol)
Absolutely ridiculous power and handling and suspension. Aside from it's a toy and not a real street vehicle like a jeep, the jeep is like a 1997 Polaris Ranger and this is like a 2020 Ford Raptor!


i recently upgraded to one of those, just a stock 172hp model for now.

Like everything else, it isn't cheap but what hobbies are (just like RVing).

Dude, that's ummm, disturbing. I think the new Broncos are kinda sexy myself, but not "that" kind of sexy!


LOL

LOL... I have zero interest in rock crawling especially with a $47k vehicle.

The articulation shot was a great example of solid axles vs independent suspension. Rear flexed great, front flexed almost none. 99% of buyers won't care, of course. Not much flexing needed to run to Costco.


I read somewhere that about 3% of Jeep owners actually take them off road other than just down a dirt road.

I'm sure the numbers for the new Bronco will be about the same. There is a two year back order for a new Bronco already.


And I bet that percent is much lower for people that own a sports car and go to a track.

To be fair, it's much more cost-prohibitive to track a car than off road a truck. At my local track, we're talking $500 Cdn / day, or $55k for a membership just to enter (then $3k / yr). For my car, add $3k tires, $500 pads, and lodging for a weekend, too rich for me.

I can take my SUV / trucks and do a weekend of bush travel for less than $500.
