The 2023 Ford Bronco Heritage Edition variants were revealed last month as retro-inspired versions of the rugged SUV meant to pay homage to the original, first-gen version of the iconic model. At that time, we learned that the 2023 Ford Bronco Heritage Edition would be available in two flavors – the regular Heritage, as well as the Heritage Limited, the latter of which is limited to 1,966 units – also the very first model year for the Bronco itself. However, Bronco Nation is also reporting that all Bronco Heritage Edition models won’t be available when the 2023 Bronco launches.
More specifically, the Bronco Heritage and Heritage Limited are both late availability trims, which means that neither will be available when the 2023 model launches in the coming months. Given the many supply chain constraints the automaker is still facing to this day, this doesn’t come as a huge surprise, but it will undoubtedly be a bit disappointing for those looking to get their hands on the retro-style Bronco.
Regardless, the regular Bronco Heritage is available in five exterior colors – Shadow Black, Azure Gray, Carbonized Gray, Cactus Gray, and Race Red, while the Heritage Limited gets its own special color palette consisting of just one choice for the 2023 model year – Robin’s Egg Blue, though it will be joined by Yellowstone in 2024. Additionally, the Heritage is only available with the Mid package, while Heritage Limited buyers can opt for the High or Lux packages.
As Ford Authority reported last month, the Bronco Heritage is available with Ford’s dual-top option, which includes both a black soft top and Oxford White-painted modular hardtop – although that option is also late availability. Otherwise, the 2023 Bronco is receiving only a small handful of minor changes for the new model year, including the addition of the HOSS 3.0 suspension system as standard equipment for Wildtrak trims, though only carryover reservation/order holders are able to access order banks at this time.
