These limited editions commemorate the 1966 Bronco
New colours, badges, wheels, upholstery and white painted accents are part of the package
Every body style of the Bronco and Bronco Sport can be ordered with the Heritage Edition, but only 1,966 of each will be made
Ford is commemorating the original Bronco with the launch of the limited Heritage Edition that will be available on the 2023 Bronco and Bronco Sport.
This special edition will add many design touches that recall the original Bronco from 1966, including some original paint colours, new upholstery designs, oxford white accents inside and outside as well as new wheels and badging.
The automaker says this package will be available on the two and four-door Bronco as well as on the Bronco Sport, but only 1,966 units of each body style will be made.
Even with such low production figures, Ford offers a lot of choices to customers, beginning with two versions. Indeed, the Heritage models will include the regular Heritage Edition and the Heritage Limited Edition, which is a more luxurious trim level.
These versions will be differentiated by a number of details, including their exterior paint, which will be limited to Robin’s Egg Blue for the Bronco at the start of production with Yellowstone metallic to be added later in 2023 and Peak Blue to be available for the 2024 model year.
The Bronco Sport Heritage Limited Edition is already available in these three colours while the regular Heritage Edition is available in seven hues. The regular Bronco Heritage Edition can be ordered in five colours.
No matter which colour is chosen, every Heritage Edition models are painted with an oxford white roof and front grill which features red FORD lettering on the Bronco and BRONCO identification on the Bronco Sport.
Other distinctive elements include the exclusive wheels that are painted white on all models except the Bronco Heritage Limited, which receives gloss black wheels meant to evoke a dog-dish hubcap.
Heritage Limited models also add metal exterior badges that are modelled after the original Bronco logos of the 60s.
Inside, these special editions feature plaid-patterned cloth seats with a white dashboard in the Bronco and a navy dashboard in the Bronco Sport. The Heritage Limited models replace this upholstery with leather that features a faint plaid pattern.
No mechanical changes are involved in this package, which means that the Bronco Heritage Edition is powered by the 2,3L EcoBoost engine while the Heritage Limited includes the 2,7L EcoBoost V6.
The Bronco Sport follows a similar model, with the Heritage Edition being powered by the standard 1,5L EcoBoost engine, which is replaced by the 2,0L EcoBoost powertrain in the Heritage Limited versions.
