Ford Bronco Sport production at the Hermosillo Assembly Plant in Mexico remained mostly steady throughout the 2023 calendar year, with a few notable exceptions. In October, Bronco Sport production at that particular facility enjoyed its best result of the year as 16,720 units emerged from the Hermosillo plant, though that number declined significantly to 10,950 units in November. However, 2024 Ford Bronco Sport production managed to rebound somewhat in December, according to the automaker’s most recent sales report.
Though it didn’t come close to its more productive months throughout the course of 2023, 2024 Ford Bronco Sport production did increase versus November – by 1,609 units or around 14.6 percent – to close out the month at 12,559 total units of production. This also means that the rugged crossover posted a total production figure of 160,635 units for the entire calendar year, which beat out the Ford Maverick – also produced at the Hermosillo plant – by a whopping 36,849 units.
Looking ahead, the 2024 Ford Bronco Sport is being treated to a few notable updates in the crossover’s fourth year of production. For starters, the Heritage Limited is being dropped from the lineup, along with the entry-level Base trim, though Ford is also adding two other interesting options to the mix – the new Black Appearance Package and the retro-themed Free Wheeling model.
Additionally, the 2024 Ford Bronco Sport lineup has dropped its factory-installed keyless entry keypad, instead making it a dealer-installed option, along with its windshield wiper de-icer. As is usually the case in model year transitions, the 2024 Bronco Sport marks a few changes to its available exterior color palette, ditching a grand total of four choices as well – though at least a couple are being replaced by new hues.
