The lineup for the 2023 Ford Bronco is extensive, with a double-digit list of trims to choose from: Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond, Heritage, Outer Banks, Badlands, Wildtrak, Everglades, Heritage Limited, and Raptor. Most of those are available as either a two-door or four-door body style, but the Everglades and Raptor are four-door only. Many four-door Broncos are available with either a hard or soft top. The Bronco Everglades and Raptor are also the exceptions, coming as hardtops only.
A turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine making 300 hp and 325 lb.-ft. of torque (with premium fuel) powers the Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Heritage, Badlands, and Everglades. These trims (except for the Everglades) can be upgraded with a turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, producing 330 hp and 415 lb.-ft. of torque; that engine is standard in the Wildtrak and Heritage Limited. Exclusive to the Raptor is a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that makes 418 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque.
Most Broncos with the base engine have a seven-speed manual transmission, with a ten-speed automatic gearbox as an option. Some four-cylinder trims come with a standard automatic transmission, and all six-cylinder Broncos have the automatic. A part-time four-wheel-drive (4WD) system is included on the trims up to the Outer Banks. These Broncos can be upgraded to a full-time 4WD arrangement, which comes on the Heritage and higher trims.
Depending on the powertrain, the Bronco can tow 3,320 to 3,500 pounds (4,500 pounds is the limit for the Bronco Raptor) when they are properly equipped. The EPA-estimated fuel economy for the Bronco varies based on the drivetrain and other equipment. With the four-cylinder engine, mileage runs from 16 to 18 mpg in the city to 17 to 21 mpg on the highway. With the 2.7-liter V6, the city mileage changes to 17 to 19 mpg. The Raptor’s rating is 15 city/17 highway.
The standard exterior equipment for the Bronco Base includes a removable top and doors, LED headlights, heated power side mirrors, front and rear tow hooks, remote keyless entry, and 16-inch steel wheels with 30-inch all-season tires. Inside, the Base has single-zone manual air conditioning, six-way manually adjustable front seats, fabric-trimmed seating, carpeted flooring, push-button start, a tilt-and-telescopic steering column, and a digital instrument display. It also gets a five-mode G.O.A.T (goes over any terrain) management system.
The Big Bend is upgraded with a six-mode G.O.A.T. system, LED fog lights, rear privacy glass, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a unique grille, a console-mounted grab handle for the front passenger, and 17-inch aluminum wheels with 32-inch all-terrain tires. As an ode to the original Bronco, Ford offers the Heritage trim, which is based on the Big Bend but adds a white hardtop with a coordinating grille, trim-specific exterior accents, side-step rails, and plaid fabric upholstery. The Sasquatch Package comes standard, adding electronic front- and rear-locking axles, a raised suspension, high-clearance fender flares, and 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels with 35-inch mud-terrain tires.
A seven-mode G.O.A.T. system highlights the features of the Black Diamond trim, along with marine-grade vinyl upholstery, underbody bash plates, rock rails, LED fog lights and tow hooks integrated into a powder-coated front bumper, and rubberized flooring with drain plugs. The Outer Banks changes to the six-position G.O.A.T. system and gets heated front seats, signature LED exterior lighting, powder-coated tube steps, fabric upholstery (leather is optional), body-color exterior treatments (fender flares, side mirrors, and door handles), and 18-inch black-finished wheels with 32-inch all-terrain tires.
The Badlands starts with the equipment from the Big Bend and gets the seven-mode terrain management system, Bilstein shocks, and 17-inch wheels with 33-inch all-terrain tires. It also has some of the same rugged touches as the Black Diamond: vinyl upholstery, rubberized flooring, and the modular front bumper with LED fog lights and tow hooks. The Wildtrak is all about extra off-road support, thanks to the standard Sasquatch Package, Bilstein shocks, and seven G.O.A.T. modes. This premium Bronco also gets unique hood graphics, fabric upholstery, heated front seats, and carpeted flooring.
For a different approach to off-pavement travels, the Everglades is based on the Black Diamond. This Bronco also gets Carbonized Gray molded-in hard top, a factory-installed air-intake snorkel and WARN winch, marine-grade vinyl upholstery, washout flooring, a heavy-duty modular front bumper, and exclusive exterior graphics. Another take on the Bronco’s legacy is the Heritage Limited, based on the Badlands trim. This edition adds a white hardtop and grille, exclusive exterior accents, leather- and vinyl-trimmed seating with perforated plaid inserts, and Heritage-themed floor liners. Completing the 2023 Bronco lineup is the Raptor, marked by exclusive exterior treatments (includes wider fenders and flares), the top-tier HOSS 4.0 suspension with FOX dampers, full-body steel bash plates, a heavy-duty modular front bumper with RIGID fog lights, a front stabilizer bar disconnect, and 37-inch all-terrain tires.
The Mid Package comes on the Heritage, Outer Banks, Wildtrak, and Everglades and is optional for the Big Bend, Black Diamond, and Badlands. It has dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, heated front seats, remote start (automatic transmission only), ambient footwell lighting, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 110-volt outlet, and additional safety and infotainment technology (which are detailed below).
The High Package has everything from the Mid Package, plus side mirrors with LED approach lighting, additional sound insulation, and other safety and infotainment features. This upgrade is optional for the Outer Banks, Badlands, and Wildtrak and standard on the Raptor. The Lux Package builds onto the High Package grouping by adding a heated steering wheel and more safety and infotainment features. This option is available with the Outer Banks, Badlands, Wildtrak, and Raptor but comes standard on the Heritage Limited. The off-road enhancing Sasquatch Package is optional for the Base, Big Bend, and Badlands and comes with the other Bronco trims (except the Raptor).
Standard on every 2023 Bronco is Ford Co-Pilot360, a collection of advanced driver aids with forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, dynamic brake support, and automatic high beams. Some additional safety features include hill start assist, hill descent control (with manual transmission only), and a rearview camera with backup assist grid lines. Bronco trims with the Mid Package also get blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping support, rear parking sensors, and Driver Alert. At the same time, the High Package adds a surround-view monitor and front parking sensors. The Lux Package adds evasive steering assist (collision-avoidance steering support) and adaptive cruise control.
Ford’s SYNC4 is the standard infotainment system for the 2023 Bronco, which includes an 8-inch touchscreen in its base version; Broncos with the High Package added will move up to a 12-inch touchscreen. The standard infotainment features include a six-speaker audio system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, and access to Ford AppLink and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The Mid Package adds enhanced voice recognition and connected navigation. Lux Package-equipped Broncos come with a ten-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, integrated navigation, additional USB ports, and wireless device charging.
