Celebrating An Icon
The 2023 Ford Bronco Heritage Edition will be available in five paint options (Race Red obviously being one of them), contrasted by Oxford White roof panels and accents. It will also be available in both two-door and four-door body styles. further differentiating this neo-classic Bronco is an Oxford White grille with Race Red “FORD” lettering, 17-inch aluminum heritage wheels painted in Oxford White, squared Sasquatch fender flares, and a bodyside stripe. A powder-coated steel capable front bumper with built-in recovery points and integrated fog lamps is standard.
Inside, the 2023 Ford Bronco Heritage Edition units feature plaid cloth seats and exclusive touches, an Oxford White instrument panel that reminds us of old Nintendo consoles, center console badging and exclusive front and rear floor liners. We saw some of the design cues in early design studies on display during the original reveal of the new Bronco.
The new Bronco Heritage Edition is based on the Big Bend series, featuring a 2.3L EcoBoost engine with 7-speed manual or available 10-speed automatic transmission, delivering 300 horsepower and 325 lb-ft torque.
The Sasquatch Package with a High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension (H.O.S.S.) 2.0 system with long-travel Bilstein position-sensitive dampers with end-stop control valves and increased ride height is standard, as are 35-inch Goodyear mud-terrain tires and Dana front and rear electronic locking axles with 4.7:1 final drive ratio.
2023 Ford Bronco Heritage Limited Edition
Coming as a surprise is the 2023 Ford Bronco Heritage Limited. Based on the Badlands series, this neo-classic SUV adds gloss black-painted 17-inch throwback wheels with classic “dog dish” centers, plus an Oxford White-painted lip around the rim. Other details include a metal “Bronco” script fender badging, leather-trimmed/vinyl plaid seats with white and Race Red accent stitching and unique Heritage Limited console badging.
While it’s not pictured, the Bronco Heritage Limited will begin production exclusively in Robin’s Egg Blue, which is inspired by Arcadian Blue, a color available on the original Bronco in 1966. The mustardy hue you see before you is Yellowstone Metallic, which Ford says is based on the 1971 Prairie Yellow color. Prairie Yellow will have a late model year availability for 2023. Peak Blue is planned for the 2024 model year.
Powering the 2023 Ford Bronco Heritage Limited Edition will be a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine with 330 horsepower and 415 lb-ft, mated to the 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.
