Do not EVER buy the first production year of ANY make or model.
That has always been my mantra as well yet not sure any more with robotics, etc. used in manufacturing today. No doubt always niggling first run issues however likely pretty easily taken care of. Had first year SHO and going through clutches. Dealer just replaced them until the “fix” came on later years.

This article gives different numbers (150k) but they are talking just the 4/2 door version, not the Sport. That said I find it hard to believe they have 80k orders for the Sport model.

It is a very nice model in its own right. This caught my eye: The rear glass opens separately for the tailgate, and there's an available mount that secures two bikes in the cargo area with the rear seats folded. Now those features are very versatile. It may not be getting a lot of press yet looks like a great crossover.

If only there was a market for such a vehicle, LR could have tapped into it.
You have to wonder what Gerry/LR thinks of all this. I mean they just "borrowed" 700k from TATA and last I read were hoping for another 900k loan from the British gov and here you have anywhere from 6 to 9.2 billion or more in sales to be had for the right vehicle. Reading some of his interviews I'd guess his POV is that the Bronco is an unsophisticated vehicle that appeals to the great unwashed. All 200k willing to pony up about 40k.
