2023 Ford Bronco: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The Ford Bronco made its much-anticipated return in the 2021 model year and remained mostly the same in its second model year. When the 2023 Ford Bronco hits showrooms, we expect it to stay mostly the same, save for the all-new, performance-oriented Bronco Raptor.

The current Bronco is a bold and rugged SUV that hides its trail-eating personality poorly – and that’s a good thing. It boasts classic upright styling from nose to tail and a range of packages upping the ante with upgraded suspension and knobby tires. It even harks back to its roots with a removable hardtop for a little topless trail devouring.

Inside, the Bronco has as simple a design as you’d expect. It features a large, relatively flat-front dash with minimal character, bringing back memories of Broncos of years past. However, tucked in this simple, retro-inspired interior is some serious tech, including a standard eight-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Buyers can also upgrade to a 12-inch touchscreen, a 360-degree camera, and 10-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system.

We expect the interior and exterior to remain mostly the same in the 2023 Bronco. The exception will be Raptor-exclusive design bits.

Under its hood, the current Bronco comes standard with a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers up to 300 horsepower and 315 pound-feet of torque (with premium fuel). Buyers can upgrade to a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 in select models, which cranks out up to 330 hp and 415 pound-feet of torque (with premium fuel). The base four-cylinder comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, but a 10-speed automatic is available. All V6 models include the automatic transmission, and all Broncos are four-wheel drive.

Other than the upgrades the Raptor trim will include, we expect the 2023 Bronco’s powertrain to remain unchanged.

The IIHS and NHTSA haven’t tested the Bronco yet. Still, it comes standard with an array of safety tech, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, hill descent control, and automatic high beams. Optionally, buyers can add active lane control, blind-spot monitors, and adaptive cruise with evasive steering. We expect these safety features to remain the same in the 2023 Bronco.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official on-sale date for the 2023 Ford Bronco, but we should learn more soon. We do know the Raptor variant is “coming in 2022,” according to Ford’s teaser video.

Pricing is also unclear, but as a carryover, we expect the non-Raptor variants to maintain their MSRP range of $32,390-$50,970 (destination fees included). We expect the Raptor to push the MSRP’s top end up a fair amount.

This rugged SUV will compete against the Jeep Wrangler, Toyota 4Runner, and the Bronco Sport.
