    I'm not a serious off roader either. But from what I've seen you usually have spotters to help you navigate the serious stuff. So I can see how the cameras and sensors help in the hairy stuff.

    As long as you don't mind being laughed at by real offroaders, buy all the "high tech" you can afford! ;););)

    However, when it breaks or ends up being useless while offroading, expect the same wrath power windows, power locks, computer screens, etc. on such vehicles deserves!

    No one is confusing it for a serious rock crawler. At least I hope they aren't.

    Cameras are on new vehicles because folks have been doing them aftermarket for years now. Now it’s integrated which is certainly helpful. Spotters can be incorrect about distance, direction, etc. It’s nice to have more information and tools available.

    I have some decent seat time in the new bronco. Its pretty capable off road in stock form for most peoples “off road” definition. Its not a desert whoop killer or rock crawling unicorn, but will get you there and back to some remote places.

    my wife has a mid level 4 door on order. We are in no rush on delivery.

    Ford is just now catching up. Land Rover has had the cameras for over a decade.

    Yet somehow people driving old Jeeps navigate the most challenging trails without them!

    Just another crutch making people weaker and subjective to needless technology!

    It’s a front camera on the top of the line package. It’s not some “offroad cheat” system like some are alluding to. About the only time it’s useful is to peek over a crest of a hill. But any good driver would get out and look before choosing that route. So front camera is kind of a mute point.

    The new Bronco does have some cool technology built in. Push button front stay bar disconnect, push button on the fly electronic lockers, all the GOAT modes, one pedal drive (simulates two foot driving technique), and adjustable cruise control for the trails. It’s all up to you if you want to use it, or drive old school.

    Probably should stop using optics on firearms too, and GPS on mil munitions, airplanes should navigate by sextant.

    I got an email from Ford basically saying shit or get off the pot :laughing:

    I have until Nov 21st to place an order or lose my reservation. Guess they are finally starting to catch up. They haven't allowed any new orders to people without reservations for several months now.

    Apparently I'm eligible to order one of the heritage editions. The heritage is just a base sasquatch with a cool paint scheme, tho.. They won't let you option it out.

    hmm...
