I looked into it a little more. The 5.0 supercharged is going to be produced at first, but the plan is to bring the BMW engine after that. My guess is the 5.0 version will become worth a shit ton of money because it will be more rare in the end.

Is that 5.0 the Ford engine, built at the Ford factory? Or ?

I think JLR now assembles it with parts they purchase from Ford. But I really don't know for sure what they have going on. I know it's about $28 grand for a replacement.

$100k-$105k for an off-roader. I was actually enjoying the video up to that point then I closed it out and returned to reality. Absolute joke.
Right. And I love the title, "watch out Jeep Wrangler". Because I always start looking at a 50k truck but end up buying the 100K one.

LOL...if someone's dumb enough to start looking at a $50K Jeep Wrangler then they're probably dumb enough to end up buying a $100K Defender.

The poor little Bronco looks like a Ford Flex rental car in base trim. It's really a sad sight when you see it on the road.

Yes; however, it looks way better than every small SUV it is competing against. The ones I’ve seen are not base model and look pretty nice on the outside for a mid $20k to mid $30k vehicle. The interior I imagine is on par with a Ford Escape interior.
