  1. Badlands Wheel Price

    That $795 would be for the DIFFERENCE, those vs. the standard wheel and P225/65-R17 tires. Factory. You don't get both sets. It really ought to be only the difference for the upgraded set of tires, I wouldn't think the 'steelies' are actually worth more $$ on their own, except they're pretty...
  2. Have you driven with the rear glass open?

    Apples and oranges...open air vs. enclosed vehicles.
  3. Reliability and Recalls

    Top Tier fuels are supposed to be assured to have the correct types and combination/amounts of detergent additives to lessen deposits (carbon, sludge, varnish...). That organization lists the participating brands. These deposits are a particular (!) problem in all of today's high-compression...
  4. Another Recall!

    This was already reported here earlier, and effects a grand total of 106-some units -- actually only up to 50 of those, according to Ford. So we have this front control arms, the rear suspension attachment, and the rear transaxle lube issues to date. All in small numbers and detected early...
  5. Any Complaints so far?

    I thought the B&O sound system sounds pretty great, but think you have to choose the source (digital), crank it up, maybe fiddle with the EQ to appreciate it. But everyone has different likes. It has to be better than the standard setup? You also get HD radio instead of SD -- which I can't...
  6. Wireless CarPlay Adapter?

    I'd have thought all the rugged individualist types driving a new BS would be looking for a Wireless Android Auto adapter, LOL!
  7. Bronco Sport vs Jeep Compass Trailhawk -- MotorTrend Comparison Review

    The headroom in the BS is more than that belied by that measurement. My convertible has 37.5", at 6'3" I screw that seat down to the floor and still my head rubs the headliner, at times. I could adjust the seat up, down, up all I wanted in the BS still with plenty of headroom to spare. I agree...
  8. Bronco Sport vs Jeep Compass Trailhawk -- MotorTrend Comparison Review

    I've always thought (or noticed) that about typical larger SUVs -- bloated inside and out while offering only about the same or sometimes less interior room/capacities. They are more plush, while you can easily see the roof, pillars, door panels, etc. etc. are all designed to maximize use of...
  9. Bronco Sport vs Jeep Compass Trailhawk -- MotorTrend Comparison Review

    I'm also convinced the Cherokee TH v. BL+BL is the "correct" comparison. Interior, room, the rear locker and low range all edge out the Sport on paper, probably on the trail, but not if it's not what you want to own and drive. I like the G2, or even G1 Cherokee! The current model is overdue for...
  10. Bronco Sport vs Jeep Compass Trailhawk -- MotorTrend Comparison Review

    All seats without any added bolster are too short for me, if I'm looking for that support. I adjust the seat height and angle so that doesn't matter, or I don't notice it. ON THE BS, the front-to-rear seat angle is not adjustable! >:-( So, I have to go with added height to get what I want...
  11. Bronco Sport vs Jeep Compass Trailhawk -- MotorTrend Comparison Review

    The Cherokee Trailhawk is an excellent vehicle, and the "smarter" choice (and I think just a bit more capable off-road) but, the greater interior room is distributed differently, the power is different, and it's just not different enough, inside or out (though the interior seems a step or 2 up...
  12. Bronco Sport vs Jeep Compass Trailhawk -- MotorTrend Comparison Review

    Because that rear door line has to meet that accent line that would border the black roof on other trims. I completely agree your revised window shape by itself looks (and would function) better, but I see it as their design solution where the rear window, roof line, and rear quarter meet. (You...
  13. New Price Increase 2-24-2021 (to MSRP, options & accessories)

    I thought I wouldn't mind the wheel on the back, thinking I'd rather have the interior cargo space (still thinking what if I swap the full-size for the mini spare so I can lower the cargo floor on the BL, will that work or do I need to swap out the cargo floor piece too? It has a big descending...
  14. Rear Ended

    My state, no-fault insurance, you make a claim for the entire repair cost whatever it turns out to be, at-fault driver's insurance pays the deductible and I pay nothing. I don't want a check, I want it fixed. They typically "find" a lot when they get going and presume I don't mind since I'm not...
  15. Is it big enough?

    Not sure exactly what you're trying to show here...the BL is wider, taller, better ground clearance, better approach, breakover, and departure angles, better water fording for sure, better towing and payload, better final drive and crawl ratios, more HP and torque, and a real (not CVT) 8A...
  16. Is it big enough?

  17. Bronco Sport Cargo Measurements / Dimensions (Length, Width, Height & More)

    Approximately 47.5 - 17.25 = 30.25" W "60" part of the 60/40 2nd row seat back!
  18. Autoblog's Badlands Road Test | “The best version on pavement, too”

    I had wiper park de-icer on my old BASE with family value pkg (or whatever it was called) 3G Dodge regular (not 'Grand') Caravan -- you could see the de-icer lines under the wipers. Never in my several decades ever had it on any other vehicle, near-luxury or otherwise. It is weird, and Ford is...
  19. What dealer markups did you get on your Bronco Sport?

    The usual consensus I read/hear/have seen myself is that virtually *nothing* among these add-ons -- especially coming from the money person -- is worth anything, and -- that beyond the repair shop this is the highest profit center for the dealership. (Financing itself is a big profit center also...
