2022 Ford Bronco Sport production at the Hermosillo Assembly plant in Mexico was previously scheduled to end November 14th, 2022 as the crossover prepares to change over to its third model year of production. However, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that 2022 Ford Bronco Sport production will now end two days earlier – on November 12th, 2022, with 2023 Ford Bronco Sport production beginning on November 14th – the same day as the 2023 Ford Maverick, which is also produced at Hermosillo. However, as is always the case, these dates are subject to change, particularly as Ford continues to battle numerous supply chain issues.
The 2023 model year will usher in a few changes for the Bronco Sport – most notably, the launch of the all-new Heritage Edition and Heritage Limited. Those two retro-inspired offerings feature a number of styling cues that pay homage to the original 1966 Ford Bronco, including an Oxford White painted roof, a heritage grille with Race Red “Bronco” lettering, 17-inch aluminum heritage wheels, and bodyside stripes, along with unique interior treatments as well. The Bronco Sport Heritage Edition features an MSRP of $34,245, while the Heritage Limited starts at $44,655, though just 1,966 units are planned for the 2023 model year.
In addition to these new Heritage models, the 2023 Bronco Sport is also adding two new graphics packages, as Ford Authority exclusively reported earlier this month. Though details surrounding these new packages are currently unclear, one will be available as a standalone option across all 2023 Bronco Sport trim levels, while the other will be included as part of the new Black Diamond Off-Road Package, which is optional on Big Bend and Outer Banks trimmed models.
Finally, as Ford Authority reported in early August, the 2023 Bronco Sport Outer Banks will be equipped with a standard memory driver’s seat and side view mirrors, which were previously unavailable on the 2022 model. Additionally, the Bronco Sport Badlands is also gaining these same two features as part of the optional Premium Package.
