Ford offers an extensive range of Broncos in the US market, with two-door and four-door variants, as well as the choice of removable hard or soft-tops before you get to the trim lines.
The range actually begins with a model variant simply known as ‘Base’ which has only the basic features, even simple steel wheels, so it can be used as a blank canvas for owners to customise with their own aftermarket additions for the ultimate off-roader.
But the Bronco isn’t a cheap vehicle, with even the Base starting at US$39,890 (approx. $52,000) and running all the way up to US$86,580 (approx. $132,000) for the high-performance Raptor.
In between there are seven other variants with some memorable names - Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Badlands, Heritage, Wildtrak and Heritage Limited.
The Heritage we tested starts at US$47,105 - roughly $70,000 in Australian money - which isn’t cheap but you do get plenty of car for the money.
In terms of standard Bronco equipment there’s a 4x4 system with Ford’s ‘HOSS 1.0’ off-road suspension system, terrain management system and 'EcoBoost' engine, plus keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone climate control and Ford’s 'SYNC 4' multimedia system on an 8.0-inch touchscreen.
Unique touches for the Heritage edition include a two-tone paint job with 'Oxford White' accents on the removable hard-top, front grille and 17-inch alloy wheels.
It also gets the huge squared-off fender flares from the 'Sasquatch' package that Ford offers for the Bronco, which also increase the track by approximately 50mm.
The Heritage treatment also includes a unique ‘plaid’ cloth trim for the seats, an Oxford White inlay in the dashboard and front and rear rubber floor mats.
