That retro goodness

Essentially a visual upgrade kit, both the Bronco and Bronco Sport Heritage Editions feature a two-tone paint job with a painted white grille, roof, and wheels. The Ford lettering in the grille has been painted a contrasting red color, and white pinstripes line the body.

Full-size Bronco Heritage Editions up the retro flair with squared-off fenders while both models sketch Bronco script in the fender’s pin striping.

Inside, Bronco Heritage Editions will have plaid cloth seats and a white instrument panel with console badging and model-specific floor mats. Bronco Sport Heritage Editions also get plaid cloth seats with white interior accents, but also feature a navy-colored instrument panel and interior plastics.

Bronco Heritage Editions will be available in five colors while Bronco Sport Heritage Editions will be available in seven colors including Robin’s Egg Blue and Yellowstone metallic. A new Peak Blue is planned for the 2024 model year for full-size Broncos.

Based on Big Bend

Bronco Heritage Edition will be based on the Big Bend trim and be powered by a 2.3-liter turbo-4 with 300 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. A 7-speed manual transmission is standard while a 10-speed automatic will be an option. The Bronco’s Sasquatch package—which adds long-travel Bilstein dampers, wider fender flares, 35-inch Goodyear mud-terrain tires, front and rear lockers, and a 4.7:1 final drive ratio—will be standard.

Bronco Sport Heritage Editions are also based on the Big Bend trim and have a 1.5-liter turbo-4 under the hood making 181 hp and 190 lb-ft. All-wheel drive comes standard, and there are five drive modes including Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery, and Sand.

Ford will only build 1,966 units of each the Bronco Heritage Limited Edition and Bronco Sport Limited Edition as a nod to the Bronco’s 1966 introduction.

Limited Edition heritage Bronco models will swap the white wheels for painted black with full-size Broncos featuring dog-dish design centers and a white painted lip. Bronco Sport models stick with the white wheels but wrap them in 29-inch Falken Wildpeak AT3W tires. Broncos feature retro Bronco fender badging while Bronco Sports feature chrome badging on the lower portion of the front doors.
