I have a First Edition 2-Door on reservation. I also would like to see interior color options!
I've been tracking the included features since the reveal and currently have conflicting information on the hardtop and roof rails. I need to know if the roof rails are included or not and if included, is the module top part of the included features?
And why can't the 2-door have the electric seats like the 4-door model?

The biggest question I’d like to know is if Ford is planning any events in CA (or west coast in general) as I’d love to attend one. If you could ask them that would be great! Thanks

@allan I tried to capture most of the questions to make it easier to answer. Sorry everyone if I missed any.

Exterior

What color options will be available for the hard top and soft top at launch? Lots of people want white.

Can we obtain clarification on how you open and close the optional tube doors?

On models that come with 32's standard, can 33's be added afterwards without any modifications?

Where will the keyless entry keypad be located on the exterior of the vehicle?

Would you please show a video of the hard top removal, door removal, pretty much any removal available? How easily can you remove the roof rails (if at all once installed?)

Can you switch between both hard and soft-tops according to needs?

If a model with a winch is available with front camera installed, would you please show a picture/video of what the view looks like on the screen?

Will the crossbars on the rack be adjustable?

Do the soft tops use zippers to connect? If not then how.

Interior

Could we learn more about the interior color options for the vinyl, the cloth, and the leather?

Will the First Editions have multiple interior options?

Will a buyer be able to select the heated steering wheel as a stand-alone option?

Would you please take a picture of the “Easter Egg” etching on the rear window as seen from the drivers’ seat?

Will the rear seats in 2 Door have under driver seat AC/Heat vents like the 4 Door?

Will you please show how to lower the rear seats and show the cargo space area on 4 door.

Any idea on how loud the interior is while driving versus Jeep Wrangler (hard and soft top at same speed)?

When getting the Black Diamond or Badlands with washout interior, does the rubberized flooring continue into the cargo area and rear seat backs?

Is the picatinny rail for the dash going to be available for all models?

Will there be an option for an AC power outlet in the cargo area?

Will cloth seats be available on the Badlands and is there going to be a green option for paint?

Will power seats be available with washout floors?

Will you please take pictures/video of people in all of the seats (front/back)?

Can you do a carpet delete at time of order?

Can the 4-Door store the roof and doors at the same time?

Are the leather trimmed seats water/weather proof?

How weatherproof is the interior consoles and control panels?

Will the First Editions have washout floors?

Accessories/Options

Is it possible to get a list of ALL stand-alone options?

Will there be a roof rack option that is capable of higher dynamic and static loads than what is being offered?

Will the Bronco have an ECO mode that will kill the engine at stop lights?

If you select an air compressor as an accessory, will it be mounted in the engine compartment?

Will the rear windows in 2 Door be operable in any fashion?

Is there an option for A/Ts instead of the Sasquatch package's M/Ts?

What are the options for attaching a front license plate?

Will the slide out tailgate be a dealer purchasable item after taking possession of Bronco?

What is “signature lighting” mean on the Ford website? Is that an option and can you show an example?

Any chance of a power top option, like the Wrangler has?

General

How many pre-production broncos are being built?

What are the plans for all of the pre production units?

Are there any plans for additional roadshows as they work in durability testing?

When will X-plan(all plans) be officially announced to dealers?

Any idea on when crash test ratings will come out, and how do they think this vehicle will perform in frontal, side, etc?

Any update on the Bronco pickup or Raptor?

Will there be trail specific badges earned for completion like Jeep offers?

Any rough estimate on when the EV version will be available?

We want to hear the questions you have for us to discuss with the Ford reps at Super Cel E! As reported last week, their will be multiple Broncos at this event, including a 4-door, which was not in Colorado for Super Cel W. Let us know what you are hoping to find out!
Thanks Allan.
1. Will a adding a winch to a Badlands, without Sasquatch, require heavier springs or a leveling kit?
2. Will beadlock capable wheels be an option on a Badlands, without Sasquatch and with 33” A/T tires?

3. Any option for a heavy duty tow, or if this option could be a Dealer Installed Option increasing capacity beyond 3,500 lbs.?

Per Ford's report, they will be present on Oct. 7-10!
Allan, can you talk to “Jake from Ford” about the possibility of putting the KEYLESS KEYPAD on the door post behind the driver’s door behind the black glass, instead of a stick on the door. I know they are normally on the door, but is it feasible?

I'm surprised we can sit in it. I have a '17 Wrangler and am intimately familiar with it. I'm both a very big and tall guy. I'd be glad to come back and post some detailed comparisons.
They would not allow us to set in any of the vehicles.

It seems Ford has re-wrote the FE specs, taking away the rubberized floor and the sway bar disconnects. Can someone verify that with a representative? The color choice and interior color was just about enough to make me swap models, but losing the badlands suspension and floor will likely be a deal-breaker, as I thought I was paying for all the best components of each trim. This is a change since I was at super celebration west just a month ago... Thanks.

Will there be an option to relocate the backup camera? Not a huge thing, but if you want a tire cover it obviously would block the camera.

I'm really with you on that. I want the off-road and outdoor abilities more than I want the FE stamp. I really would like both, but I'm not going to be happy without the weatherproofing and wash out options. I plan to run it on the beach and sand more often than anything other than the street. That means I need to be able to really clean it!

Just noticed that on their site. I'd give up stabilizer disconnect for sport mode, but I wonder what else is going to change. :oops:

The spec sheet on the website still shows that the FE and BL still have the stabilizer bar disconnect, but it also shows 3500 instead of 7K as the limited edition number. I agree that the allure of the FE is slowly diminishing.

@David The Ford website keeps changing... can you ask/confirm if the FE will come with the stabilizer disconnect and washout floors? Ford's website removed these options under the FE description. I hope it's a typo. Thanks.
