Bronco and Bronco Sport World Premier July 13th!!

Recommended Posts

It is my understanding that the zone reps have the ability to place orders into “hold” status (99) as the dealers no longer have this option in WBDO.  Of course this might have changed recently.   I have a second order that is also waiting for the mod-top.  My original reservation (7/31) and order somehow got pulled this week and is scheduled to build on 1/10/2022.

Unless one of the vents in the fender is a door/charge port, I don't see one for a PHEV setup.

 

Someone posted a photo of a Bronco pretty much uncamoed except for a circle on the passenger side over rear wheel that might have been a charging port?!

My first two impressions on driving a Bronco Sport for the first time: 1) quick, much faster than our '012 Focus, 2). Smooth!  That balance shaft in the 1.5L engine works very well.  We've had our Bronco Sport since April.  Over 7,000 miles.  Luv it.

this is a Badlands...had to have the 2 litre, after that...hard for me to leave anything alone.... all badges removed, White letters in front changed to black ( they removed the whole bumper! ) had tow hooks painted Red, fog lights changed and red caliper covers in front with 18 inch OZ wheels 245 tires...drives GREAT...and very quiet. Shes absolutely stoked...and I had some fun opting it out. The stereo is even above my expectations!

So glad to see that you got your vehicle at last and that you're so happy with it!

Nice. I like like rally style OZ wheels. Works so well on the Bronco Sport.

Eh, unless that's the best camo ever or the one sticker is covering the door completely (and swings open with the door), I don't see any cut lines for a door, which you can usually make out even through camo.

 

Plus, I'm not sure why it'd be right over the wheel well, and not just a twin of the fuel door.

Ford is not going to punch a new hole in rear fender for charge port. For one thing, the 2 door and 4 door have different length so you are talking about 4x the tooling costs for the structural part of the body: 2 door, 2 door PHEV, 4 door, 4 door PHEV. 

 

The charge port will almost certainly be on a non-structural part of the body like the front fender where it can be easily added to the existing production line and used by all the different build variations.

The rear outer quarter panels aren't structural in any way. They’re actually fully removable, though I'm not entirely sure why you would want to other than easily replace a damaged one.

Is the watch band color just a coincidence?
