Yay, more crap we already knew about plus some more crap nobody cares about... aside from how to get rid of Alexa built in whatever that is. One backseat driver is enough for me.


The wireless software updates worry me.

When I played a lot of video games you would see a lot of broken bs in new games. They figured the software didn’t have to be perfect because they could just send out a patch later.

That’s a pita and feels like a rip off when you are pay $60 for a computer game. I surely don’t want that same experience in a $40,000 truck.....

So the new Bronco also spies on you 24/7 listening to your conversations, using Alexa.. Nice.

Well if the road suddenly turns bad you can simply say out loud- “alexia, engage 4wd” and not be reaching for that button/lever/knob. lol

You can change Alexa's voice to Samuel L Jackson so when you ask it to do that it will curse at you...

Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.

Or why don't you just say "Alexia, fix the damn road"?

I didn't get a picture, but I saw a full size Bronco tonight. They *are* out there. Oh, and it was on the road, being driven.
