2023 Ford Bronco Heritage Two-Door In Shadow Black: Photos

The 2023 Ford Bronco Heritage and Heritage Limited – along with the Ford Bronco Sport equivalents – debuted back in August, and Ford Authority has spotted a number of each in the months since, as well as both two- and four-door prototypes prior to that reveal, a Race Red two-door and Robin’s Egg Blue four-door Bronco, and Bronco Sport models in Robin’s Egg Blue, Yellowstone Metallic, and Peak Blue. Now, Ford Authority has also spotted a 2023 Ford Bronco Heritage two-door finished in Shadow Black for the first time.

Designed to pay tribute to the original 1966 Bronco, the Heritage models feature a two-tone paint job with Oxford White accents including the modular hardtop, the front grille – which is also adorned with Race Red ‘Ford” lettering – unique bolt-on fenders, 17-inch aluminum heritage wheels, a bodyside stripe, squared-off Sasquatch-width fender flares that give it a two-inch wider track, tube steps, a powder-coated steel capable front bumper with built-in recovery points and integrated fog lamps, a powder-coated rear steel bumper, and Heritage bodyside graphics. The Heritage Edition models will also be getting the dual top option, which consists of the black soft top and Oxford White-painted hardtop.

The Bronco Heritage Edition is available in five different exterior colors, while Yellowstone Metallic – based on the 1971 hue dubbed Prairie Yellow – is planned for the late 2023 model year, while Peak Blue will be added for the 2024 model year. The 2023 Ford Bronco Heritage Edition is based on the Big Bend trim, and as such, comes equipped with the turbocharged Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost engine and seven-speed manual transmission or the 10-speed automatic as an option, while steel bash plates protect the undersides. The Sasquatch Package is also standard equipment, and adds a 4.7 final drive ratio with electronic locking front and rear axles, high-clearance suspension, position sensitive Bilstein dampers, and 35-inch LT315/70R17 Mud-Terrain tires.

Inside, Bronco Heritage Edition units feature plaid seats, unique floor liners with Heritage logos, a Heritage Edition console badge, and an Oxford White instrument panel, the hardtop sound deadening headliner, rear window defroster and washer, and a storage bag for front row hard top panels.

While carryover order holders can order a Bronco Heritage, the Heritage Limited is “limited” to dealer stock only, while just 1,966 two- and four-door models planned for production, making up a total run of 3,932 units for the 2023 model year.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Not a fan of the black and white combo, Ford could have easily opened up the whole color pallet.

    Ford told a handful of people that if they waited till 2023 that they can get a white hardtop when they order their Bronco. They let us on for a whole year thinking that we’re going to get a white hardtop. You just can’t trust Ford at anything they say anymore. My Bronco is supposed to be built on the 12th and if I see a gray hardtop on it they can have it. No longer interested in it

      HEs will be the only ’23s with a white top and they’re late availability Q2 per Ford. If yours is being built on the 12th then yes it will have a gray top so why didn’t you switch to a HE and get the white top?

    Needs Free Wheelin’ stripes. Only way I’d do a black Bronco.

    I just want a Heritage grille painted grey on a base Bronco manual 2d.
