As it remains in high demand and short supply, order banks for the 2023 Ford Bronco are only open for carryover order holders and dealers. Regardless, the off-road-focused SUV soldiers on into the new model year with a host of updates for those that are able to purchase one, ranging from the addition of new colors and variants to more technical changes. Now, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that 2023 Ford Bronco production is adding a heated mirror removal option, too.
Officially dubbed “heated glass removal,” this option pertains to heated side mirrors on the 2023 Ford Bronco and isn’t currently required for all models. However, the option is being added in the event that heated mirrors become unavailable in the future, at which point customers can opt to remove them in an effort to speed up their new vehicle delivery amid various ongoing supply chain constraints.
Otherwise, the big news for the 2023 Ford Bronco is the addition of the Heritage and Heritage Limited models, which are currently listed as late availability and will launch later in the model year. Customers will be able to order the Heritage Bronco, though the Heritage Limited is reserved for dealers only. Heritage models are also available with both a black soft top and Oxford White-painted hard top, even though the Shadow Black-painted hard top that was supposed to be available from 2021 still isn’t.
In addition to a navigation removal option for the entire lineup, 2023 Bronco Wildtrak models are getting the H.O.S.S. 3.0 suspension system as standard equipment, while a series of glitches dropped auxiliary switches and the Sasquatch Package from some customers’ orders during the conversion process. Those that have an existing Bronco order in the system that wish to convert it to the 2023 model year have until November 21st to do so before that order is removed from the system.
