One of the appeals of the Ford Bronco is its rich history as a tough off-road SUV. Playing off that pedigree, the Ford Bronco Heritage debuted in the U.S. last year in the U.S., bringing classic throwback styling to the resurrected nameplate and its smaller sibling. The Bronco Sport Heritage already made landfall in Mexico earlier this year – and now, it will be joined by the Bronco Heritage Limited Edition, which was recently announced for the Central American country.
Thus far, the Ford Bronco has proved a hit in Mexico, and the addition of the Heritage edition vehicles to the lineup will make it that much more appealing to customers in the market for a modern vehicle with retro styling cues. This includes bold “BRONCO” script across the front grille, plaid vinyl seats with perforated leather inserts, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Bronco Heritage also includes the Sasquatch Package, with 17-inch Heritage Black Forged aluminum “dog dish”-style wheels, finished in Oxford White.
The Ford Bronco Heritage for Mexico features an exclusive color, known as Legend Blue, and features Oxford White bodyside graphics, and a metal emblem featuring the classic Bronco logo.
Under the hood, the Ford Bronco Heritage Limited Edition harnesses the twin-turbocharged Ford 2.7L V6 EcoBoost engine, good for 330 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. That power is relayed to the road via its 10-speed automatic transmission, and unique selectable drive modes include Normal, Eco, Sport, Rain/Slippery, Mud/Ruts, Rock Crawl, Baja and Standard.
“Remembering the early years of the Ford Bronco is special for everyone, especially because of the iconic nature of the model for the brand. This edition takes up the entire design, designed so that users can enjoy every detail, combined with the latest in technology and power,” said Lucien Pinto, director of Marketing and Sales of Ford of Mexico, in a translated statement.
