It'll probably get that gorgeous white interior too (it'd be a pain to keep clean, though).


I would never be able to get a white interior. One shift at work and it will never be clean again.

Yeah, it's one of those that looks great, but in reality wouldn't be practical.

White interior is the equivalent of a black exterior. Amazing right after it is cleaned but give it a day or two and it will look dirty. I work in construction which is why I am pumped about the MGV and rubber flooring.

Here is a headscratcher- Bronco Sport does not offer seat memory on any trims.

Maybe they're saving that for the Lincoln version,,,,,

have to say, I for one don't find that a necessary option...takes 2 seconds to scoot a seat forward and backward and wife andI drive with the same seat height,,,then again they are recaros….but regular powers fine by me , memory, not so much...probably important to some but I kinda question why. That said Ive seen people lose it over some trivial ( well, again in my mind ) absent features...

Well memory seats is certainly a necessity for us in our Navigator (30-way adjustable).  However, I see your point for those seats 6-way or whatever power adjustments.

A lot of people have to make multiple adjustments not just moving the seat up and back.  I don’t know of any other vehicle not offering memory seats on the top trim levels.

Well the real Bronco doesn’t offer memory seats either.  Although, I understand the reasoning for not offering it in that application....doesn’t mean it’s acceptable.

Neither does the big Bronco, even opting for the leather/power seats.  I'm disappointed in that, but not the end of the world.

 

I'd take the A/C seats over memory, alas I have to live without both (I'm sure at least the former will appear in a few years like what happened on Flex, but I don't want to wait lol).

What's the rationale for not offering seat memory on either Bronco or Sport? I would think that on upper trim levels, people kind of expect that to be there. 

 

Maybe the removable doors on Bronco means they can't run wiring to memory buttons on the door (how do you adjust the seats if the doors are removed)? But they can't find room on the side of the seats itself for a couple of buttons?

Center console would work.  At least add the functionality to the key fob.  It is one of those expected features on upper trims that convince buyers to splurge on the fancier model.  Sort of like cable packages....a few channels you really want spread amongst various packages to entice you to go all in.

It's a bronco.  I doubt memory seats was high on the priority list.

I'm also on team A/C seats... so hopefully in time we'll see more features come around.

No. IMO Ford key fobs are already way too big.

I think the way to do this is add it as a software feature to the key fob. Depending upon which key fob is detected in the drivers seat, the seat would automatically adjust the the preferences that are tied to that keyfob. I thought some manufacturers were already doing this with PAAK (Phone as a key).

 

Yes, the key fobs are already too big.

My father in law drives an older Mazda CX-5 (2010-ish) and his key fob is easily 1/2 the size of my 2019 Flex and about 1/4-1/3 the size of the one for my Fusion. Not sure why they’re that big but it's crazy to see them side by side.

No need to add lots of buttons.  Just identify which key fob is present and adjust the seat to the preset assigned to the fob.  Lincoln already does this  on the aviator and I think the SHO supports it also. Size of the fob was likely determined by some studies on what felt comfortable to hold fit in a pocket and not too small to get lost.  The Ford fobs have a built in key.  That may dictate size also.

 

any seat controls could also be built into the center touch screen or phone as a key.

I was gonna suggest this... just add a menu into the infotainment section for seat adjustment and presets.

So does the Mazda fob.

I’m guessing the seat position sensors aren’t compatible with a wash out interior.  Only thing that makes sense on top models.

Our Navigator does this, in addition, the profiles are saved to the Lincoln Way app so you don’t even need the fob.  It does not require physical buttons inside the vehicle to change profiles/seating presets.  Not sure if this is exclusive to Lincoln or there are Ford vehicles that offer these features.
