    Looks great in Iconic Silver. Leslie and I looked at an Alto Blue Maverick equipped about the same as your dads but ended up buying a Ranger Lariat 4x4 instead to get a little more capacity. Tell him congrats from me!

    Just let me know. I, too, didn’t take much interest in the Bronco Sport when it first came out but the more I learned about them, the more appealing it became. I really like driving it.

    This one has a 1.5L turbo power plant, but a 2.0 turbo is available in the Badlands trim level. It only makes 181hp/190tq but considering it’s a 4x4 vehicle weighing only ~3400lbs, it gets around pretty well. It’s averaging about 26.5 mph city/highway with my highway miles getting about 33mpg.

    So, after 4 years and 50,000 miles of trouble-free driving the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimted Rubicon, we elected to move on to another vehicle that is off-road capable but that offers about the same interior room but better economy. Enter the 2021 Bronco Sport w/Outer Banks trim package. We looked at and drove the “big” Bronco but were disappointed by the final product. Maybe in a few years as they further refine it and the craziness around the pricing subside (can you say Bronco Raptor) we might reconsider but this “little” Bronco is a great vehicle.

    Checked out a Ranger Tremor the other day and would love to check out a full-size version in-person.

    I’ve driven two now, a Black Diamond trim and a Badlands trim and walked away disappointed. Interior was functional but the plastics seemed very cheap as compared to A Jeep Wrangler and seemed very underpowered for its heft. I needed up trading the Jeep for a Bronco Sport. Not the big Bronco I thought I wanted but definitely a fun and capable vehicle. Great mileage and the interior is laid out great. Overall, very satisfied after 200 miles.

    How has it been over 15 years?

    If any has or knows of someone looking to sell a 5x8 utility trailer, I am in the market.

    As EV’s are adopted, en masse, the prices will go down, I have no doubt.

    Ford has made is clear, if you do towing or heavy-duty hauling, this is not the truck for you. This truck does not replace the offerings they have for those folks. I imagine this will be great for the 90% of truck buyers whose biggest payload is from Lowe’s/Home Depot and whose towing consists of four wheelers/lawn mowers. I read where they had over 50K order inquiries within minutes of its debut.

    No, I’m not actually buying one. Other priorities. But I do like the package.

    FJG was my first inclination, but it seems it had an 75+ take rate. I’d rather have something less common on a Mach 1 as a color. I believe Two Rivers has a FJG Mach 1 if you want to see it in person.

    I only had one that could make four figures at the flywheel.
