Shortly after the 2021 Ford Bronco was revealed this summer, the automaker revealed that its range-topping trim level, the First Edition, would only be available with one interior color option – Navy Pier. So while we were playing around with the Ford Bronco configurator that just launched yesterday, we were quick to notice that both the 2021 Bronco Badlands and Wildtrack trims only showed one interior color choice as well.
However, not all options and accessories are present in the build and price tool just yet, so we reached out to Ford to see if the 2021 Bronco Badlands and Wiltrak would only be available with one interior color option, or if there were more to come at a future date. Turns out, there aren’t, as Ford confirmed to Ford Authority that both of these top trim levels will each offer one interior color only.
2021 Bronco Badlands models come standard with a Black Onyx interior in one of two different materials – marine grade vinyl or leather-trimmed vinyl. Meanwhile, Wildtrak models come with a Medium Sandstone interior in either cloth or leather-trimmed vinyl.
The Base Bronco comes equipped exclusively with Black Onyx cloth, while Big Bend trim is available with either Black Onyx or Medium Sandstone cloth. Black Diamond Broncos are fitted with Dark Space Gray Marine Grade vinyl, while Outer Banks models offer four different choices – Navy Pier cloth, Roast/Black Onxy cloth, Dark Space Gray/Navy Pier leather-trimmed vinyl, and Roast/Black Onyx leather-trimmed vinyl.
The limited availability of interior color options for certain Ford Bronco trim levels is likely part of Ford’s plan to keep things simple and to reduce production complexity and ensure quality, which is why it decided to push back the availability of the Black‑Painted Modular Hardtop until later in 2021, as we reported yesterday.
