Bronco 2‑ and 4‑door reservation holders will be given the choice of taking the mold-in-color option when the order conversion process begins in December. Alternatively, reservation holders can choose to wait for the black-painted modular hard top when it comes available. In addition to the black painted finish, the modular top allows for the removal of the rear-quarter glass in Bronco 2- and 4-doors models and on 2-door models only, adds another panel to the rear cap.

Bronco brand has indicated that initial reservation time stamp will continue to be honored. We are not sure what this will do for those choosing to wait except to ensure your place in line.

    1. S/O standard / optional
      Two door versions will come standard with the hard top only and four door versions will have a standard soft top with the option to add a hard top. The wild land and FIRST Edition will be the only models standard with molded in color

  1. I am confused. I thought that the FE included both. This chart shows we only get the hard mic top and that’s it. Any help would be appreciated.

    1. FE only includes the MIC top. It originally came with the modular painted black top, but that’s late availability now.

  2. So, correct me if I am wrong. Big Bend has the gray front grill and the gray molded hard top available. Do any other models have the gray molded hard top?

    1. All of the 2-doors have the gray MIC top standard. It’s an option on all 4-doors with the exception of the Wildtrak and FE, where it’s standard.

  3. Due to this last min change, If we select a soft top for the Dec Bronco order can we also order a painted black hardtop at the dealership from the parts department in Dec?

  4. Can someone confirm that the rear glass panels are only removable in the Shadow Black painted modular hardtop? This is one of my deciding factors for which top to go with…
