Entering its fourth model year, production of the 2024 Ford Bronco Sport began at the Hermosillo Assembly plant back on October 16th, 2023. Prior to that, the rugged crossover enjoyed a bit of a boost in terms of production in the month of September, when the automaker built 15,338 units of the Ford Bronco Sport, which was – at that time – the third best total of the 2023 calendar year thus far. However, that number only increased in the month of October, according to FoMoCo’s latest sales report.
Last month, a grand total of 16,720 Ford Bronco Sport crossovers were built at Hermosillo, which is 1,382 units or nine percent more than September. That figure also represents the best month of production for the Bronco Sport in the 2023 calendar year thus far, and brings its year-to-date total up to 137,126 units.
Meanwhile, the 2024 Ford Bronco Sport introduces a few minor and more notable changes for the rugged crossover, as it has ditched its SecuriCode keyless entry keypad from the lineup, dropped four exterior colors – Alto Blue Metallic, Area 51, and Cyber Orange Metallic – (while gaining two others in Azure Gray and Desert Sand), deleted its windshield wiper de-icer, and also ditched the Heritage Limited and entry-level Base trim. The latter update means that the Big Bend has now become the lowest-priced, entry-level trim level in the lineup.
Meanwhile, the Bronco Sport is adding two new packages for the 2024 model year – the Black Appearance Package and its host of darkened elements, as well as the retro-themed Free Wheeling Package, which adds reflective red, orange, and yellow gradient graphics on the hood, sides, and liftgate, along with painted Shadow Black steel wheels with red accents, a Shadow Black roof, a silver-painted grille with two-tone Bronco badging, and a modified lower front end insert.
