I like the Big Bend. The sandstone interior is nice. I'm going BB with Sasquatch. They have floor liners for $160.00 which will help keep the carpet clean. If I was going to go non-sasquatch I would go BD for the wheels and tires...

I like both and definitely was attracted to BD's washout floors and MGV seats, however the other items that get it close to Badlands is what tips me to BD (locker, steel bumpers/bash plate and rock rails). Seems like a great value for someone looking to have a budget off road rig from the factory. Although I do like BB's interior color options and that you can add the LED Signature lighting. :)

Also, you can switch trim levels when you place your order, so yes, is possible.

I did a quick cost comparison between Big Bend and Black Diamond. Just wish the "Mid Package" would stop taking my Manual away! Pretty much, if you want to go off-roading I would pick Black Diamond. You can get it for the same price as Big Bend (or less) and pretty much get all the great perks for hitting the trails. (Pricing based on my area)
  • $37,960 for 2 Door Big bend, 2.3L (Auto), Mid Package, Aux Switch, LED Headlights and Tow
  • $42,350 for 4 Door Big Bend, 2.7L (Auto), Mid Package, Aux Switch, LED Headlights and Tow
    • Includes: Heated front seats, 17” Grey wheels, Fog Lamps and leather wheel.
  • $39,635 2 Door Black Diamond, 2.3L (Auto), Mid Package and Tow Package
  • $42,130 4 Door Black Diamond, 2.3L (Auto), Mid Package ($1,495), Tow Package.
    • Add $1,895 for 2.7L (Auto)
    • What you get that’s not include on Big Bend: HD front Bumper, 7 GOAT Modes, Upgraded Bash Plates, 17” Black “Steelie” Wheels, Overhead Aux Switches, Vinyl Seats and washout.

I don't understand not having signature lighting available on the Black Diamond, but it is available on the Big Bend.

They know the buyer for the BD and Badlands are looking for similar capability and if they offered that option on the BD they would certainly sell fewer Badlands. It is a classic move to motivate buyers into selecting the higher trim. All manufacturers do it...I'm just thankful Ford brought the Bronco to market with the hardcore capability it will have.

I had a feeling that's what it was and not an error on the build and price tool, oh well.

I reserved a big bend edition, but I’m debating a black diamond. Is that switch possible? And what is everyone’s thought?
I reserved a base 2-door. I'm have looked at all the Bronco models. 40k is tops. I finally decided to go with BD because of the interior. Love it. But I asked, begged, pleaded, wished for FORD to make a white interior Bronco......to no avail. I saw and article somewhere that Ford was going to offer a white and grey interior...that maybe justa hoax article, as I can't find it, now. That would my dream. A white Bronco, inside and out. Top too!

I am with you, white interior would be pretty cool! I also am a big fan of the white top which should be a MY 2022 option. Love the old school look!

Disappointed that Ford would do that with the BD and Badlands. But I am not taking the bait. I am saving 2000 by going BD and will forego the LED signature lights. But i spent the savings on the Warn winch.

Yep I’m getting the BD for the same reasons, sure wish signature lighting was offered. Don’t understand that one....
