So far in contrast Ford has delivered a package with better performance, more options to customize the vehicle to your taste, better pricing and has handled the launch much better. Even during a pandemic. Gouging by dealers has been kept to a minimum and anyone could get on a list to pre order at list price.

From a market perspective just look what's out there. I mean there are few cars as manufactures have moved to SUVs and crossovers. Worse all those look the same. The Bronco (like the Jeep) break from the mold of the Escape look and offer a choice of customizing a vehicle you can make your own. Even my wife likes it which is very unusual. I had strongly considered one as a toy but went with a 1970 Mach 1 instead.
Good choice! Love the Mach 1.

My son is ordering one. Maybe I'll just have him buy Aric's. I mean, since it is used it should be cheaper than getting new.

It’s hilarious how many boomers say “HUR ILL BUY IT FOR LESS THAN MSRP CAUSE ITS USED HURRRR” when I posed it for sale. Meanwhile my DMs were flooded with offers.



I just sold it for 12k over MSRP after having it two days.

Is the Bronco officially the shortest you have kept a vehicle? How do you address the tax on the purchase/ sale? I think TX sales tax on a vehicle is ~6%? So you netted $8500? Not a bad 2 days work.

Yeah I had to pay sales tax. That’s officially the shortest I’ve ever owned a vehicle for sure. Some boomers were even “YOU DONT EVEN OWN IT YOURE JUST POSTING TO TROLL YOU SCUM” id just post a pic of it in my driveway.


I forgot how much people hate flippers like me. I’ve been waiting on this bronco for a year, I’ll do whatever I want with it. Lol

I’d say this would happen Covid or not. Easily one of the most hyped up launches since the C8 vette. Those are still selling for 30-40 over.
