To celebrate the legendary Ford Bronco, Heritage Limited editions were released in 2023 to bolster its old-school design elements. Engineered with modern tech and advanced performance, the Heritage Limited SUV offers an exhilarating EcoBoost powertrain and drive-assist features.
Only 1,966 units were created this year to commemorate the 1966 introduction of the Bronco. However, it will be more widely available to buyers next year. With various two-tone metallic colors and wheel sizes, the Heritage Limited provides a smooth, seamless driving experience and optimized performance for on- and off-road adventures.
Those with a penchant for ’80s Broncos may be drawn to the Bronco Sport Heritage model, which features special plaid cloth seats. The Heritage edition includes seven paint options, while the more expensive Limited is limited to Robin’s Egg Blue, Yellowstone Metallic, or Peak Blue choices. Oxford White accents, such as the grille with Race Red “BRONCO” lettering, Oxford White 17-inch aluminum wheels, body-side stripes, and a white-painted roof, are also included. In addition, Ford provides a variety of special equipment, designs, and accessories to match customer preferences.
Models/Price: Prices for the Bronco Sport Heritage Edition begin at $34,245 MSRP, while the Heritage Limited starts at $44,655 MSRP. The Heritage is priced at $44,305, and the Heritage Limited at $66,895 MSRP. Visit www.Ford.com for more details on ordering and options.
