Forum reports 2022 Heritage models for 2022
Both two and four-doors getting the treatment
Ford’s Heritage Edition vehicles have been some of the coolest specials to come out of the automaker in the last decade. Mostly applied to the Ford GT supercar in the form of retro-inspired liveries that hearken back to the GTs and GT40s that raced and won in the 1960s, they are some gorgeous cars. The latest, says a new report, will be a limited edition for the new Ford Bronco.
The news was first shared through Bronco6g.com, though it was very much short on details. A post to the forum said that “we’re happy to share exclusive insider info” and announced that there would be Heritage Edition Ford Broncos coming for the 2022 model year. They’ll be available on both two and four-door versions of the Bronco.
According to the report, the body code covers the 2021 model year as well but says Ford confirmed it wouldn’t be offered in that year’s production. Likely it was supposed to be, but with the production of the SUV now pushed back to May the delay would seem an easy choice to make.
What will a Heritage Edition Bronco look like? We don’t know yet, but there are some excellent possibilities in the Ford stable. The original 1965 models looked splendid with a white top and trim, a pattern that would work well on the current version too. For racing liveries, the gold and white Big Oly Bronco raced by Parnelli Jones in the 1970s is an excellent place to start, as is the Rod Hall 1969 Baja 1000 winner, a livery already reused on the Bronco R racing prototype that went to the race in 2019 and 2020.
Expect plenty of graphics, stripes, and stickers, whatever the special is. And some retro-style wheels are also probably on the table. With five decades of production to choose from, Ford won’t want for options.
