2023 Ford Bronco Ordering Glitch Leaves Out Auxiliary Switch

Entering its third year of production, the sixth-generation Ford Bronco remains in high demand and low supply. This is a big part of the reason why 2023 Ford Bronco order banks are only open to carryover reservation/order holders, as the automaker is working to fulfill all of those requests before taking orders from new customers. Regardless, some of those that were able to place a 2023 Ford Bronco order recently discovered that the Sasquatch Package was accidentally removed, and now, others are finding that their orders are missing the auxiliary switch option as well, according to Bronco Nation.

This glitch happened at the same time as the disappearance of the Sasquatch Package from many orders. Essentially, the web-based dealer ordering system (WBDO) was closed for a couple of weeks in September as Ford updated it for the 2023 model year, and when it reopened later that month, these features were missing from some customer orders.

On the 2023 Ford Bronco, the auxiliary switches are standard equipment on the Black Diamond, Badlands, Wildtrak, Everglades, Heritage Limited, and Bronco Raptor, and available as an option on the Base, Big Bend, Outer Banks, and Heritage. Ford has alerted dealers to be on the lookout for these deletions, but those that have a 2023 Ford Bronco order already placed should double check it, as once an order is pulled for production and assigned a VIN, changes cannot be made.

In the meantime, the 2023 Ford Bronco will receive a few changes for the new model year, including the addition of the new Heritage and Heritage Limited, which can be spec’d with the dual top option but are also marked as late availability. The 2023 Bronco will also continue to offer a navigation removal option like the 2022 model, and will not be available with the black-painted hard top, though the Wildtrak trim is gaining the previously optional H.O.S.S. 3.0 suspension system as standard equipment.

    I have a 2021 Outer Banks 2-dr. The door panels are very bad about scuffing and I have not found a product that will remove the scuffs. Any suggestions? The driver panel was badly scuffed when it came in to dealer. They replaced it but replacement is now badly scuffed.

    There is no explanation for demand on a poorly designed knock off vehicle. Jeep wrote the book on four wheel drive, and these are an anemic attempt at best. Enjoy your long walk home.
