Is black the only option for the roof? If not, will white be available? (I know it must sound corny, but I would love to get my new Bronco with a blue body and white top to match my '74!)

Thank you in advance!
This question came up at Super Cel W, and the response was that there will be a color and material walk-through coming soon that might include more roof color options. Stay tuned!

Thanks to everyone! Making note of these. keep the questions coming!
Allan,

Could you please share with us how the knowledge transfer between you and the Ford rep will take place? Understanding the process could generate more questions.

For example, are you or a helper person able to video tape the exchange? Will the exchange be done at the Bronco(s)? If so, that could generate a request for the Ford rep to demonstrate entering and exiting the rear seat of a 2 door Bronco. Or perhaps to demonstrate the removal of the modular hard top on the 4 door Bronco. Also, show us where the jack is stored and what else is in that cubby.

Does this make sense?

Thank you

I'm also very interested in the keypad on the Bronco. I use this feature on my MKZ all the time. It's one of the best things Ford does that almost no other manufacturer offers.
Why is this needed with fobs and just touching the door handle on the keyless entry setup? I never need to touch my fob. I just grab the door handle for entry and touch the spot on the handle to lock upon exit.

Because, I leave the fob locked inside of the car so I don't have to carry it around with me.

Ditto for me. My current ford (2014 Escape Titanium) has the capacitive number pad in the driver's door. Can use that to lock/unlock my car doors and leave my keys inside the console. No need to carry them around.

Excellent issue needing clarification. If you look at the picture below with the roof off, and if the door was also removed, where would the key pad be located? Maybe it is located on the door, but that would not make sense? I assume you still lock the Bronco with the door off to activate the security system? Curious!

OK, now I see a spot to locate the keypad. It may be in the vertical black piece above the door handle.

Exactly. When I go mountain biking I don’t need to carry keys which are bulky and could get lost who knows where.

As others have said, Im curious about the White top being an Option as well as will 33's fit on the stock suspension. Now that the Sasquatch is available with the manual I most likely will go with that, but if finances don't allow I want to know if I can fit 33's in the future without having to install a lift. Also what are some of the options that will be available to those who wait along with will there be any new colors like a dark green added in the coming year or two. Thanks!

I wanted that white top too! I’d love to have that with a green base, like in the first generation.

Will the Sport also be given the Blue paint color option on it's First Edition too?
Any word on a date to fill in some of the "TBD" information on the Dealer-Installed accessories?

This morning I had an opportunity to examine a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4 door. This was my first time looking at a Jeep product and my goal was to identify three characteristics for comparison with a Bronco 2 and/or 4-door. For those who plan to attend the SuperCel East event, this information might be helpful.
  • I liked the rock rails on the Jeep. They appeared to protrude from the door panels enough to protect the panels from rock damage and they served as a helpful step into the cabin. (The Jeep in question was riding on what appeared to be 33s.) They had a non-slip texture. What are your impressions of the rock rails on the Bronco?
  • The liked the visibility via the rear-view mirror out the rear window. However, the side rear view mirrors did not have small convex inserts to enable a wider field of view. A picture of the Bronco side mirrors would be helpful since I believe they have the convex inserts on both sides?
  • I felt the Jeep would greatly benefit from a 360-camera feature, especially if a winch is protruding from the front bumper. On the Bronco, are you able to engage the 360 feature and gain a better feel for the winch placement on the 2-door Bronco with the winch? If so, what are your impressions? (I am still not liking the Bronco winch placement on the 2-door.)
Hope this is helpful @allan and @David. Thank you!

Hey,
Just 2 questions:
- will clothe seats be available on the Badlands and is there going to be a green option for paint?
Ditto the green question, it just needs to be an option. Dark Jade, my 79 needs a matching new stablemate.

Hi! It will vary. Like at Super Cel W, some of it will be general Q&A in conversation that we will post here or in an article, and others we try to address with photo and video. Planning for more of the same at this event too. We also hope to do some live video on our social channels (particularly Instagram), so stay tuned for content there as well!

I really like the videos the team has been posting about members and the bronco talk video. Hopefully you can more as well!

Are the new Broncos going to be on display for the entire event or are there certain times and days that they will be onsite?

Will the First Edition Bronco have interior color choices? The Bronco Sport only has Navy Pier and we would really like to have options for the Bronco.
