Now the fun really begins as Ford is bringing retro goodness to the Bronco family of vehicles for 2023 offering Heritage and Heritage Limited editions to both the full-size Bronco and the Bronco Sport. Built in limited numbers, the new editions celebrate colors and spirit of the original 1966 Bronco inside and out.
The 2023 Ford Bronco Sport Heritage models will be offered in two distinct trim levels; the Heritage and the Heritage Limited Edition.
At the entry point is the Bronco Sport Heritage which is based upon the Big Bend trim grade and features lots of visuals include a two-tone paint treatment with an Oxford White on the roof, accent stripes down the side and on its unique alloy wheels. Across the white grille is Race Red “BRONCO” lettering.
The interior of the Bronco Sport Heritage gets Navy Pier accents and Oxford White contrast touches throughout. Seating trim is a heathered Navy Pier with plaid patterning along with a combination of Race Red and Robin’s Egg Blue accent stitching. Center console and armrests also get Navy Pier trims with accent stitching.
The 2023 Bronco Sport Heritage Edition has the Big Bend’s upgraded suspension with increased ride height and off-roadier strut, spring, bushing and anti-roll bar metrics for a more compliant ride in the rough. Power comes from a 1.5-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine with 181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque.
The Heritage Edition is available in the widest variety of factory colors, seven to be exact including the exclusive Robin’s Egg Blue you see here.
Up the trim ladder is the more exclusive Bronco Sport Heritage Limited Edition of which only 1966 will be offered. Based on the Badlands trim grade it offers up the more powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 250 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque.
As such it also has the more robust four-wheel-drive system with manual locking capability and a twin-clutch rear differential unit that can push nearly 100% of torque to one of the rear wheels. You also get the suite of seven “GOAT” modes, including the additional Mud/Ruts and Rock Crawl.
Visually the Heritage Limited Edition differs getting a retro metal “Bronco” script badge in leiu of the white side stripe. The white alloy wheels have mounted slightly beefier 235/65 R17 Falken Wildpeak AT tires too. It will be available in a limited color group including the new Robin’s Egg Blue, Yellowstone Metallic and Peak Blue along with a Oxford White roof treatment.
The cabin of the Heritage Limited Edition models sheds the Navy Pier color theme and instead features a rich saddle leather for seating and padded trims but retains the Oxford White trim appliques on the dash and door panels. On t he center console is special-edition badging.
