Recently, rumors were swirling that a Ford Bronco Heritage Limited Edition model was on the way for the 2021 model year. No further details have surfaced as to what, exactly, this Bronco Heritage Limited Edition might look like or what sort of features it will come with, however. Now, Bronco Nation has reached out to Ford and received confirmation that no Heritage Edition 2021 Ford Bronco will be offered.
“All of the offerings for the 2021 model year have already been announced and we have no plans to introduce additional models,” said Jiyan Cadiz, Ford Bronco Communications manager. When asked about the possibility of a 2022 Heritage Edition, he added “our focus is on the highly anticipated launch, we have nothing to announce regarding future models at this time.”
Thus, we cannot confirm nor deny the existence of a Heritage Edition Ford Bronco, but we do know that if it does exist, it won’t be happening this model year. That’s not a huge surprise, of course, as the automaker is currently working overtime to launch the 2021 Bronco by this summer, a new deadline that was pushed back from the original delivery date target of spring following some COVID-19 related supplier issues.
Ford has also tried to simplify its offerings in an attempt to speed up the production process. This includes the late availability of several options, including the painted-hard top, as we reported recently. The automaker is also delaying the addition of newly announced options, including the pairing of its seven-speed manual transmission with the Sasquatch Package, which was added following overwhelming customer feedback.
We’re certain there will be many limited- and special-edition Bronco models in the coming years, including the Bronco Warthog and maybe even a Bronco Raptor, but right now, Ford is rightfully focused on merely delivering the trim levels that have already been announced.
