Those with their names on the list for the 2023 Ford Bronco Sport will have to wait just a little while longer, as production of the off-road SUV has been delayed for the forthcoming model year, Ford Authority has learned.
According to sources familiar with the matter, production of the 2023 Ford Bronco Sport will begin two weeks later than initially projected. Production of the current 2022 Bronco Sport was expected to end at the Hermosillo Assembly plant on November 17th, 2022, followed immediately by the start of production for the 2023 model year. However, the 2023 Ford Bronco Sport will now begin production on December 1st, 2022.
There are a few minor changes on the way to the Bronco Sport for the 2023 model year. Most notable is the launch of the all-new Heritage Edition and Heritage Limited Edition models. These special edition vehicles pay homage to the 1966 Ford Bronco with exclusive two-tone paint schemes, white grilles and red Bronco lettering. Additionally, the SUV will get two new graphics packages, as previously reported by Ford Authority. One of these packages will be available as a standalone option across all 2023 Bronco Sport trim levels, while the other will be included as part of the new Black Diamond Off-Road Package, which is optional on the Bronco Sport Big Bend and Outer Banks.
Additionally, the 2023 Bronco Sport has lost the rearview camera washer feature completely. Previously, the handy feature was available for Big Bend and Outer Banks models, but it will no longer be available at all. The SUV will also be unavailable with two colors that were previously offered as a no-cost option, including the Bronze Smoke Metallic as well as the Velocity Blue Metallic hue.
