If you look at the Ford Edge ST' specs.. we see
FWD: 21 city/29 hwy/24 combined mpg
AWD: 21 city/28 hwy/23 combined mpg
AWD: 19 city/26 hwy/21 combined mpg
4x4: 21 city/26 hwy/23 combined mpg
The Bronco Sport BL/FE is actually 3" taller than...
Non Fender Flare Kit..
Fender Flare Kit
Looks like just an additional trim molding above the original. That's a bit steep for 4 pieces of plastic. I'll wait until the aftermarket scene catches up and possibly make a better looking Fender Flare.
Not exactly sure where you are, but if you are willing to make a trip out of it.. I believe that Granger is still Honoring the $2000 off invoice depending on reservation/order?.... I couldn't confirm if Stephens is still honoring theirs... and not sure if its closer to you or not.
Value is in...
How about you order a BL+BL package.. and we'll meet up to swap seats interiors? 😁
Honestly.. I would be willing to do it and split the package cost.. you get to keep the B&O system, moonroof.. etc.. I would like the seats, door cards.
Though I think the dash would not match very well, and...
Max Dynamic load has to do with the mounting mechanism to the body/chassis so I don't think that changes even when removing stock rails for aftermarket mounts.
Like James says.. its about the RTT. Stacking 100+ lbs on top of the roof is quite a bit of gear though.
If someone gets the...
Probably not in the same magnitude. Its a more low key, less hardcore vehicle.
From the current information, the Dealer mannequins are scheduled to be made first, and 1 of the forum member that has an FE reservation and converted order of 7/29 already got a VIN and an estimated delivery date...
Maybe they'll design both the rail mounts and track mounts for the Bronco Sport. I'm not sure if the track mounted would be any stronger though, but it might save a little bit of fuel.
They are kind of pricey though but probably going to be about ~50lbs.
I'm sure you meant Dynamic roof strength and not static. I'm not a expert at roof rails, platforms, and crossbars... but I have to wonder if someone makes a basket/platform large enough to mount directly to the rails instead of having to put it on top of an additional set of crossbars, it would...
Did you call your dealer to confirm, or did they call you to confirm your order? If neither.. its possible that your dealer is doing it wrong and just basically pushed all that you selected during the reservation to an actual order. You should call your dealer and confirm your build.
While I'm not grangerford, I'm going to presume its a bit hard to tell right now. We have only had 1 confirmation of a VIN number in this forum from an FE build confirmed order in July...
We will probably be able to surmise a bit better when the last of our reservations have been given a VIN.
I would assume if you order it as part of your own build it package, then yes. BobJohn is right however that its YMMV because of your dealer.
I don't assume we can get it at invoice pricing AFTER you have already had delivery.
Honestly I also ordered the same thing, I didn't want the moonroof so I could get more roof strength.
I would have liked dual zone climate and maybe the B&O but I'm not all that bothered by it.
With that said, you might still be able to call your dealership and get it changed.
