2023 Ford Bronco Sport Outer Banks Gains Standard Memory Features

New for the 2021 model year, the Ford Bronco Sport gained a few small changes in its second year of production, and that will also hold true for the forthcoming 2023 model. As Ford Authority reported earlier this month, that includes the addition of a possible retro-inspired Heritage variant like its big brother, the Ford Bronco, as well as an all-new Black Diamond Off-Road Package, too. Now, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that the 2023 Ford Bronco Outer Banks is also gaining some standard memory features, too.

The 2023 Ford Bronco Outer Banks will be equipped with a standard memory driver’s seat and side view mirrors, which were previously unavailable on the 2022 Bronco Sport. Additionally, the Bronco Sport Badlands is also gaining these same two features as part of the optional Premium Package, too.

These changes join the potential Heritage model that recently showed up on a VIN decoder document posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The Bronco Heritage will feature a unique front grille with body-color “Bronco” lettering, a roof rack, a painted hard top, retro-styled four-slot wheels, and meatier tires that are finished in a matte black and covered by the same squared-off fender flares as the Everglades, though it’s unclear what sort of features might be present on the Bronco Sport Heritage.

2023 Ford Bronco Sport Black Diamond Off-Road Package

Meanwhile, Ford Authority spies spotted a 2023 Ford Bronco Sport Big Bend equipped with the Black Diamond Off-Road Package earlier this week. That new offering will include a special graphics package, 17-inch Carbonized Gray-painted low gloss aluminum wheels, 225/65 R17 all-terrain Continental tires, and underbody protection, though the late availability option package must be paired with the Class II Trailer Tow Package and either Big Bend or Outer Banks trims.

    I can see those features being deleted (with no credit) because you know we don’t have enough chips to offer that.
