Heading into its fourth model year, the sixth-generation Ford Bronco has soldiered on mostly unchanged, save for the addition of new variants, exterior paint colors, and various other features. However, the 2024 Ford Bronco is set to receive a handful of changes for the new model year, which Ford Authority has outlined in detail over the past few weeks. Now, those interested in spec’ing out their dream 2024 Ford Bronco can do so online, as the SUV’s build and price configurator is officially live.
There are many notable updates taking place in the 2024 Ford Bronco lineup, but the first thing that most will notice is the absence of a trim that’s been around since the SUV came back for the 2021 model year – the Base. This former entry-level model has been dropped from the 2024 Bronco lineup, as Ford Authority reported yesterday, meaning that the cheapest Bronco one can buy now is the Big Bend, which starts out at $39,130 – compared to $34,890 for the Base 2023 model. It’s also worth noting that the two-door Outer Banks model is no longer listed in the configurator, either.
In addition to this change, there are a few other updates in store for the 2024 Ford Bronco, including the fact that the Everglades – unlike the Base trim – will be returning for another year, though it and the Badlands are currently listed as constrained trims, according to the build and price tool. Additionally, Ford is ditching the 8-inch infotainment screen in lesser models and making the larger 12-inch screen with Sync 4 standard across the entire 2024 Ford Bronco lineup.
Finally, Badlands-trimmed models will come equipped with the Heavy Duty Modular Front Bumper as standard equipment. As for the Ford Bronco Raptor, that high-performance model is getting a new Code Orange package, two new exterior colors, and the option to spec the SUV with color-matched fenders, too.
