Entering its fourth year of production, the sixth-generation 2024 Ford Bronco is set to receive a number of changes for the new model year, albeit mostly minor ones. The Blue Oval continues to tweak its ever-popular off-road-focused SUV amid ongoing supply chain constraints, adding some features while deleting others. Many of these changes have been revealed via the 2024 Ford Bronco build and price configurator, including some notable updates for the model’s factory navigation options.
For starters, in the 2024 model year, the Bronco no longer offers a 90-day subscription navigation option. In its place, The Blue Oval is offering Connected Navigation with one year of service, which effectively replaces the 90-day feature. This is included with models equipped with the Mid Package, which is available as an option on the Big Bend, Black Diamond, and Badlands trims, as well as standard on the Outer Banks, Wildtrak, Everglades, Raptor, Heritage, and Heritage Limited. Additionally, the three-year option has been deleted entirely from the lineup. Previously, it was a standalone option for models with the Mid Package and it came standard as part of the Lux Package.
This is one of a handful of changes taking place with the 2024 Ford Bronco, which dropped the Base trim and got more expensive at the same time. The 2024 Bronco has also ditched Area 51 as an exterior paint color option, along with the keyless entry keypad, while also combining the contents of the High and Lux Packages. Badlands trimmed Broncos and those equipped with the Sasquatch Package are getting the same upgraded steering gear present in the H.O.S.S. 3.0 suspension system as standard equipment, too.
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. Badlands-trimmed models will come equipped with the Heavy Duty Modular Front Bumper as standard equipment, while the Bronco Raptor gains new graphics and the option for painted fender flares in the new year, and the factory Trailer Tow Package has been replaced by a dealer-installed option as well.
