Love the 2.0L, had it on my last 2 Escapes. It performs like a small v8 with decent mileage.





I finally settled on the FE as Ford advertised it as being “fully loaded”. First day reservation, still waiting to get it built... and Ford’s idea of fully loaded wasn’t quite the same as mine . By the time it became apparent that wasn’t the case I was not willing to switch and go to the bottom of the queue. If I were to order now it would be a BL with BL package and Assist+ (Mostly for the Sync nav and adaptive cruise control). In spite of this I’ll be happy with the FE, if only I can actually get it. Haha!

Been tossing around the roof awning as well, just curious how hard it would be to put on and take off to not have it on full-time
How much is the awning. I was thinking about ordering it after my Bronco Sport arrives? It may be more expensive ordering it through the Dealership parts department.
That I’ve got no clue on costs. Haven’t really got into it that much since we won’t know build windows till May. Lights and bumpers are more a priority to start once it arrives.

Hey everyone,

I'm curious to know which BS edition you picked and why?

I went with the badlands edition for the upgraded suspension and the bigger engine/turbo and the 1in facorty lift.
I went with the Badlands for many reasons. Trail Control, Front Camera, advanced 4x4 system with twin clutch, rear differential lock, skid plates, tow hooks, 8.8 inch ground clearance, 2 extra GOAT modes, full size spare tire, and most important to me was the 2.0L engine. In the past I’ve owned a1970, 1971, and a 1981 Bronco. All of them saw the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The more torque you can get, the better.

I went for the First Edition for the same reasons as @Bronco70_71 and I fell for Ford’s promise of “fully loaded”. I also really like the Navy Pier seats.

I wanted something to match my 2014 Escape Titanium and the BL+BL was comparable. Fell in love with the Ebony leather seats interior when I saw it in person and had to have that. The 2.0 engine was a must as I test drove the 1.5L and it wasnt as zippy as I like it to be. Also love the idea of the front facing cameras and sensors. Also with the GOAT modes, I fell confident to tackle snow driving now which I currently avoid like the plague.

This vehicle is for my wife, Margaret, aka Midgie. She saw a BS on facebook and liked it, we went she drove a outerbanks, I felt it lacked power so I suggested she drive a badlands and she agreed on the power. I would not have opted for the locker or 2spd t-case since she's not going off roading but, what the hek

I wanted a 2.0. I’m coming out of a 2017 4WD Escape Titanium with the 1.5 and I live in the mountains, so the bigger motor was a must. The Escape was a great car, never had one issue with it over 4 years and 60k miles. I bought the Bronco Sport Badlands with the Badlands option package, Assist+, upgraded tires, & towing package. It was the the only one they had, just released (early) from the 4 month/or 4k miles program. It’s white (my preferred car color) with the gray roof. I’m getting 4 mpg more in the BS than my Escape. I’m really liking it.E9EAA44A-A2C0-4142-B041-5965E7448F37.jpeg
