The 2023 Ford Bronco Heritage and Heritage Limited were revealed earlier this month as retro-inspired versions of the rugged off-roader that pay tribute to the original 1966 model in a number of ways. One of those features is an Oxford White modular hardtop, which matches other white accents like the front grille and wheels. However, it seems as if the 2023 Ford Bronco Heritage models will also be available with an optional black soft top, according to a screenshot outlining new model year changes posted by a Bronco Nation user recently.
This document lists the dual top option as being available for the Bronco Heritage and Heritage Limited, which would include both the Oxford White hardtop and a black soft top, though it’s also listed as a late availability option. Dual tops were also planned for regular Bronco models when the sixth-gen launched for the 2021 model year, though hardtop supply constraints quickly derailed that offering.
In addition to a dual top option for the Heritage and Heritage Limited, the 2023 Ford Bronco is also set to receive a few additional updates for its third year of production. Perhaps most notably, that includes the addition of the long-awaited Shadow Black-painted hardtop, which was also supposed to launch for the 2021 model year, but has been delayed due to the automaker’s well-documented supplier issues.
As Ford Authority reported earlier this month, 2023 Bronco order banks opened up on August 29th, 2022, while production is currently scheduled to follow at at the Michigan Assembly plant on October 31st, 2022. However, those order banks are not open to new customers – rather, initial orders are being prioritized for current Bronco order holders. Orders will then open to all customers next year, regardless of current reservation status. Luckily, the Heritage Edition will live on beyond the 2023 model year.
