Today, on Bronco Day, Ford introduced the Heritage Edition and Heritage Limited Edition Bronco and Sport: two appearance packages built on the Big Bend and Badlands trims with design cues from the 1960s.

What is Bronco Day? Bronco historian Todd Zuercher shares the story of August 11.

Vehicles that Combine the Best of Both Worlds
These special-edition models pay homage to the 1st Generation of Broncos while harnessing the power, technology, and comfort of the 6th Gens.

I think I’m the only one that finds these hideous. But! Ford saying they aren’t taking new customer orders until next year makes me happy.

I prefer Gen 1 elements to stay on Gen 1s, but there are bits and pieces I find ok. I think we'll see people doing the bodyside stripes even more now.

I could do without the Race Red interior trim parts. It kind of ruins it for me.

Ah, well now I know what the mysterious NDA was for.
I think I’m the only one that finds these hideous.
I don’t like it either. They could have gone two ways with this… one was chrome elements on the wheels/grille and the other was painted. After seeing the leak of the two heritage models, I had expected them to do painted for the “mass produced” model but thought we could have seen chrome on the limited model.

But… no chrome, bummer. The did a real good job on the interior styling overall (though I agree with @SlashRacer about the interior red trim), but the exterior does nothing for me.

Kind of a let down, though after seeing the F-150 heritage stuff (don’t like that either), I didn’t really expect anything different.

I will say that Ford should have taken the time and at least did body painted fender flares, handles, and mirrors to make it look like it clashes less. I think all the black parts and then white thrown in there doesn't seem to blend well IMHO.
Now if they did paint the plastic parts body colored and threw in a chrome bumper it would have looked amazing. I do like the grill and interior though (y)

I want the white dashboard so bad. I remember seeing it during the Bronco unveiling and then again in the Pope Bronco. I would pay stupid money for it if Ford released it as a performance part upgrade.

So a regular Heritage is based on a Big Bend Sasquatch. So that would make the Heritage a $4000 price increase over a BB Sas. I was actually considering switching my BB Sas order to a Heritage until I did the math.

Or it could be a hint at the type of price increases we’re looking at for 2023. :confused: Appearance packages—which this basically is— typically cost $1000 - $3000 (ish). Assuming this “appearance package” is closer to the $3000, that could hint at a ~$1000 price increase for 2023. Which seems very plausible.

Although in case someone on the Bronco team reads this… I would like to thank Ford for making special edition vehicles that are priced within reach for most of us. They could have easily done some crazy $75,000+ vehicle and it probably would have sold just fine. But instead they based it on a lower-end trim to make it more reachable for the masses.

They did the same thing with Everglades and I definitely appreciate it.

I'm going to have to see how it all weighs out. I may also lose price protection. That is unknown because we don't know what they are doing for 2023 pp yet.

I definitely like the wheels on both, and squared fenders look good in my opinion.
Full agree on both points - they did another great job with these wheels. Second in line for me against the Everglades wheels, which look fantastic. The squared off fenders are where it is at, too.

As for the full package...I'm not sure how I really feel about these Heritage editions. Just not my cup of tea, I suppose. Some elements are nice but the package as a whole just doesn't feel right.

I'm surprised no one has said anything about the pretty lights (unless I missed it). Personally I like the pretty lights, but if it's heritage why didn't they use the standard headlights without the signature lasso?

Since we are picking on things here....Not a fan of the rear fender flare, looks weird at the bumper. FORD should be black (against the white), not Race Red, and we all know I LOVE Race Red!

And lastly I got to ask.... and no offense to the B Sport fans.... but what the hell is a Heritage Bronco Sport? A Bronco II?? Which it doesn't even look like or nod to. I mean come on Ford, stop trying to think of ways just to jack up the prices of everything!

I'm on the fence about these.

There are things I like and things I don't care for. I guess we'll see once the order banks actually open up.

I'm more curious about the mysterious 'Oates' 2Dr, actually.
