Thoughts on the new Ford Bronco? Is the low mpg worth it? 🤔 would love to hear from people who currently own one

I need a new car and I really love the design and capabilities, but I would use it mainly for commuting/getting around town (besides the occasional off-road excursion on weekends). I’ve done a lot of research but I still am not sure. If anyone has monthly price of owning one that would be great too. I live in CA btw

Broncos are a joy to drive. With that said, buy a used Prius and save your $

funnylike

Hahaha love the Prius advice

No thoughts on the current model of the car besides thinking it looks nice in photos.
Every time I hear the make and model, I think of O.J. Simpson.

What type of off-roading are you doing? If it’s mostly driving along an unpaved road to get to a trail head, skip the Bronco and get something more practical. Accenture doesn’t pay enough to get murdered by Cali gas prices.

If you’re rock crawling or doing serious off-the-grid overlanding, then it might actually make sense to own one of these.

Valid point!

Low MPG doesn’t really matter. What matters is how many miles you drive. My wrangler gets 14 mpg but I only fill it up twice a month because of how little I drive so it’s not a big deal.

I think I’m definitely going to start to keep track of how many miles I drive and factor that into whether I get one or not. Thanks!

Thoughts, the design is hot. Advice, not the time with inflated vehicle prices, high interest rates, and high gas prices to be buying anything more then what you need. And parking in CA in general is a hassle much less an SUV. My advice, hard pass.

Nice! Looks pretty cool, the 4 door might be a little too big for me but I hope you love it

It’s fast but don’t expect to get away like OJ. It’s electric so no more slow speed chases. Remote off. Talk about vulnerabilities!

My wife and I looked into a 4 door real bronco, we opted out and went with a Range Rover because the back seat was too small.

That said, I will likely get it in the future for my car, this purchase was for my wife and two issues she couldn’t get past was the backseat and thought it was too wide for her to drive.

If you’re looking at at $60k+ suv I’m assuming you’re not concerned about the mpgs.

The Bronco has been been recalled twice since this thread was started.

The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal).
My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?

Hey team! I've been thinking about what success would mean in terms of this platform and general inclusion in the team. These are some of my thoughts:

1. Frequency of positive engagements (positive in a productive, constructive sense)
2. Increasing numbers of people engaging in each topic as they get more comfortable using the tool and airing their opinions
3. Some measure outside the app of team engagement in day to day interactions (changes in psychological safety)

What are your thoughts?
