Have a brand new Big Bend four-door. At 40 miles an hour rides like a charm 45 to 50 the wind starts to rush, at 70 miles an hour you can hear a conversation. Back to the dealer today

Hard top or soft top? You do realize it's a Bronco, not a Lexus, right?

I do. BUT hardtop need to be quieter. Moved from a soft top jeep. No issues. This is not acceptable. At 58k will get $ back if not resolved
I'll give you that. a hard top should be quieter than, say the soft top. Which trim model do you have, and do you have the sound deadening? But in the end what's TOO loud is kind of subjective. For some of us, we kind of expect that when we are going 80 PMH on the freeway in a Bronco that there's going to be some wind noise. In the end, however, it can't hurt to take it to the dealer and see if maybe something can be done.

I agree it’s relative but something is wrong. We will see. This complaint seems to be commonplace. The engineers wil figure it out

It's a modular top with removable parts and frameless doors, never will it be quite like a one-piece top and I can say for a fact it's quieter than a soft-top I was in. Do you have the sound deadening? common?? have seen very few complaining about the noise level

These things make a brick look aerodynamic. I love 'em.
I just drove mine from coast to coast and back. Into a 50 mph headwind in South Dakota. Yes.. talk about loud wind noise. Killed the gas mileage. BUT.. it's exactly what I expected. I love it. The only negative thing other than the noise is that windshield is a BUG MAGNET. It's what you'd expect from a brick. Oh, did I say I love it?

Right, kinda common sense with a big ass block going into the wind, not like its got Lambo lines

Fo Sho! I like to take the side roads on my 1/2 hour commute. Bugs have been brutal and they'll only get worse over the summer. Still, I smile every time I clean the windshield because it is my Bronco's windshield!

I added the Aeroskin hood deflector and it really helped with the bug guts.
As far as noise, it's not quiet, and is to be expected. I have the sound deadening, but there are areas with no insulation. For those areas I'm going to add Dynamat.

I did the same thing a few weeks back, added the hood deflector because I already had 3 small chips from rocks. Went with the Aeroskin II (extra bump in it) to prevent the bugs from finding my windshield. Definitely happy with it so far... as long as I don't "try" to spray the windshield going over 30 MPH :rolleyes:

Back on top though, I'd really like to understand what you guys consider loud. I've only owned FSB's, a Taurus, an Elantra and an Eclipse. And to be honest, I don't think the new Bronco is any louder than most "poor man's vehicles" out there. So someone please explain to me what is so loud?!?!
