Earlier this year, the 2022 Ford Bronco Wildtrak gained FoMoCo’s new H.O.S.S. (High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension) 3.0 as a $2,515 option, which includes Fox 2.5-inch internal bypass dampers, the Ford Performance Severe-Duty upgraded steering rack from the Bronco Raptor, upgraded inner and outer tie rods, a rear stabilizer bar, and off-road competition-inspired spring rates. Now, that feature is standard on the 2023 Ford Bronco Wildtrak, according to Bronco Nation.
Making the H.O.S.S. 3.0 system standard on the 2023 Ford Bronco Wildtrak helps differentiate the range-topping trim from the Badlands, which offers features that the Wildtrak did not, such as rock rails, stabilizer bar disconnect, and Rock Crawl mode. The option also adds a host of other equipment including the Capable powder-coated front bumper with tow hooks, a front steel bash plate, and integrated fog lamps.
Perhaps more importantly, this change slots the Wildtrak neatly below the Bronco Raptor, which is equipped with H.O.S.S. 4.0 system. Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond, and Outer Banks trims come with the 1.0 version of that setup, while Badlands, Wildtrak, Everglades, Heritage, Heritage Limited, and Sasquatch-equipped Broncos come equipped with version 2.0.
In addition to this change, the 2023 Ford Bronco lineup is receiving a few additional updates, including the addition of the new retro-inspired Heritage and Heritage Limited models, which will get optional black soft tops in addition to standard Oxford White hard tops, while the Shadow Black-painted hard top is available as an option across the entire lineup. It is worth noting that 2023 Bronco order banks are only open to existing reservation or order holders, and not new customers at the moment, however, as the automaker works to fill all of those carryover reservations and orders that have lingered since 2020.
