Learn from the Bronco

  • From all of us at Scout Motors, welcome to the Scout Community! We created this community to provide Scout owners, enthusiasts, and curiosity seekers with a place to engage in discussion, suggestions, stories, and connections. Supportive communities are sometimes hard to find, but we're determined to turn this into one.

    Additionally, Scout Motors wants to hear your feedback and speak directly to the rabid community of owners as unique as America. We'll use the Scout Community to deliver news and information on events and launch updates directly to the group. Although the start of production is anticipated in 2026, many new developments and milestones will occur in the interim. We plan to share them with you on this site and look for your feedback and suggestions.

    How will the Scout Community be run? Think of it this way: this place is your favorite local hangout. We want you to enjoy the atmosphere, talk to people who share similar interests, request and receive advice, and generally have an enjoyable time. The Scout Community should be a highlight of your day. We want you to tell stories, share photos, spread your knowledge, and tell us how Scout can deliver great products and experiences. Along the way, Scout Motors will share our journey to production with you.

    Scout is all about respect. We respect our heritage. We respect the land and outdoors. We respect each other. Every person should feel safe, included, and welcomed in the Scout Community. Being kind and courteous to the other forum members is non-negotiable. Friendly debate is welcomed and often produces great outcomes, but we don't want things to get too rowdy. Please take a moment to consider what you post, especially if you think it may insult others. We'll do our best to encourage friendly discourse and to keep the discussions flowing.

    So, welcome to the Scout Community! We encourage you to check back regularly as we plan to engage our members, share teasers, and participate in discussions. The world needs Scouts. Let's get going.


    We are Scout Motors.
Impossible to please everyone. 2" receiver in the rear is all but standard in large parts of the US. That said, dealers still charge extra for it. Front 2" is significantly more rare - aftermarket only and even then I seriously doubt it would pass crash tests. For a farm vehicle, it is very convenient - but outside of specific work vehicles, it all but does not exist. I have 4 vehicles I use on the ranch, only 2 have front receivers - and one of those is a SxS.

As for 2 door - well then we can fight about wheel base. Plenty of people love the short wheel base, others prefer 4 door - but they probably like it as much for the handling as the 2 extra doors. I have a white whale - a LJ... 2 doors, but extended wheel base. Jeep did 2 or so years of those about every 10 years. They kept bringing them back then cancelling them. It's been over 15 years, and I don't think they are coming back. The real problem now is they don't add sales - they either steal from the 2 door short wheel base or the 4 door longer wheel base. No profit to make them really.
 
Saw this thread on Bronco6G and found it interesting. No real knocking on the Rivians but good info to think about in regards to EV motors and split torque. Was just some things I hadn’t directly thought about living in the semi-snow, northeastern section of the country.
