At least for some two-door models.
Deliveries of the Ford Bronco are delayed until next summer due to supplier issues but that's done nothing to put a dent in the reborn SUV's vast popularity. As the automaker continues to accept preorders, there have been some pricing changes along the way, which isn't entirely unusual for an all-new model. But in this case, it's the Sasquatch Package that's just become more affordable on Base and Big Bend 2-door models. Information obtained by the Bronco6G forum indicates a $1,595 price cut.
Here's a precise breakdown: the Sasquatch Package alone currently costs $4,995, but in order to get it on those aforementioned models, buyers must tack on the optional 10-speed automatic transmission ($1,595) and the Advanced 4x4 package ($795). The total comes to $7,385, which isn't exactly cheap.
However, up until very recently, the complete package deal would set buyers back by $8,980. Interestingly, it appears only the 10-speed slushbox and not the manual is eligible for this price cut. Following significant customer demand a few months ago, Ford announced the Sasquatch Package will now be available with the seven-speed manual for all trims, including the Base.
But now, the least expensive Bronco Base model with the Sasquatch Package will come to about $37,300, assuming no other options are added. While we wouldn't call that, it's still under $40k, and we all know just how expensive a Jeep Wrangler becomes once the option boxes are checked.
The fact that Ford is even making the off-road-focused Sasquatch Package available on less expensive trims is commendable, as is any price reduction. This package is already highly attractive to Bronco buyers because of its serious list of off-road features. These include 35-inch tires with deadlock capable wheels, Beadlock wheels, the Badlands' Bilstein Monotube shocks, upgraded locking axles, and a shorter 4.7 final drive ratio.
This package comes standard on the Wildtrak and First Edition trims and, along with the Base and Big Bend, can be added to all other Bronco trims, specifically the Black Diamond Outer Banks, and Badlands.
