Ford has unveiled the new Heritage Editions of the 2023 Bronco and Bronco Sport, which are inspired by the original Bronco that debuted in 1966.
“Bronco captivated America in the mid-’60s with its rugged style and uncompromising off-road agility, a legacy that is still prevalent today,” said Mark Grueber, Bronco marketing manager. “With these new Heritage and Heritage Limited editions, we’re paying respect to Bronco’s roots with nods to some of the signature design cues from the first-generation vehicle, while continuing to build the Bronco Brand with more special editions that our customers want.”
The Bronco two- and four-door Heritage models are based on the Big Bend trim and feature a two-tone paint exterior with Oxford White accents. The special Oxford White grille features Race Red “FORD” lettering. It also gets special 17-inch aluminum heritage wheels painted in Oxford White and a bodyside stripe. 1960s inspired squared fenders with Sasquatch-width fender flares have been added and a power-coated steel capable front bumper.
