Also... noticed it’s $170 for rubber floor mats... $170 for carpet floor mats... puts that discussion to bed. If you’re not getting a Badlands or First edition, not getting carpet floor mats sans one of the lower trims, forgot which one but I feel like their was a bone thrown for outer banks... might have been rubber there though.

I wrote to Yakima support to get information about what Yakima products are compatible with the BS (such as what works with moonroof). I got a nice note back,

Right now, Our FIT team is till evaluating the bronco sport to see what passes testing. I have added your name to the list and email to make sure you will be notified when testing is done. At this time, I do not have a time frame on when this will be done since they have a lot going on with testing newer vehicle, etc. Keep checking www.yakimatech.com for updates!​

If you are interested, go to http://fitlookup.yakima.com?fitid=26603 (which is the link for the Bronco Sport) and then enter your email address to get added to the list. Pretty handy!

You’re right base doesn’t have the keyless entry keypad but this doesn’t mean the keyless entry keypad for other trims doesn’t require keys nearby... like the “keyless” push to start requires keys nearby.

Not saying I’m right but it would serve the same purpose of not having to dig your keys out to unlock your car as it does to not dig them out to put in the ignition to start.

Does your current vehicle have physical buttons or touchpad? I know the physical buttons don’t require keys nearby.

My assumption of the touchpad requiring keys nearby is because they offer an optional physical keypad that specifically says... “unlock your vehicle without your key or keyless entry remote”

yes it could be just for base but I don’t think so..

I think it has it’s own battery that powers the same mechanism that the touchpad controls. This optional keypad will work when the car battery is completely drained and you don’t have your keys.. and my theory is that the touchpad will not

The documentation you provided from Ford is a bit misleading. They provide a picture of the keypad but then discuss keyless entry, which are two different things. The keyless entry definitely requires you to have the keys and it senses you are near the vehicle like the documentation says then unlocks the car one you touch the door handle. The keypad does not require your keys to be anywhere near the vehicle and you can still lock and unlock (among other things) your vehicle. I tested this on my explorer and escape just now to verify.

I haven’t tried to use the keypad when the battery is dead so I can’t confirm that theory.

I think you’re right. My theory is flawed. The keypad accessory must be for base only.

Hood scoop! Lol
The Hood scoop on page 11 looks different than the one on page 15. If only they did a whole new hood with the integrated scoop and added either top air intake or intercooler kit.

Else its one of those exterior mods that I usually laugh at too. But hey.. to each their own. I'd rather have the FE's hood decals.

On another note.. I'm interested on the fender flares on Page 12 Accessory B than Page 15 Accessory G. It would match up really well with Mud tires as it gives an additional 1-1/2" flare.

Agreed on the hood scoop. I actually quite like the added aggressive look, but wish it were functional & not just a peel + stick application, no thanks... The bolt on flares look MUCH better than the dinky little ones we saw on the updated B+P last month though. I'll likely order those separate from the dealer after I take delivery in Feb/March.

I want them as well.. but... $400+ is a bit steep.

I hope they add the front nudge bar as seen on the trail rig concept, def interested in that.
I tried to contact Daystar Offroad to see if they are planning on releasing some Bronco sport products.

I was hoping something like the Front Winch Bumper can be made.

I have a feeling lots of company’s will release accessories for both the bronco and bronco sport starting in 2021 and should have a good selection by 2022

I like the idea of a hood scoop but wish it was better incorporated with the rest of the hood. A simple scoop like on the Jeep 392 concept would look good.

So the flares are no-drilling-required. Depending on the price, i could see benefit even if a bit "fake" (like my fake steelies :) )
