Some of you will be happy, some of you will be mad.
It's safe to say that the Ford Bronco is a massive success. In fact, the 2022 model already sold out last month, which leaves us all questioning when to expect the 2023 model. According to recent reports, orders for the 2023 Ford Bronco will open in August. Whether you'll get your car this year or not remains to be seen, as lengthy delays continue to plague the Blue Oval and other automakers. But one thing that you don't have to wait for any longer is the color palette. Thanks to information leaked on the website of paint specialist Automotive Touchup, we now know what hues will be available.
Starting at the top and working our way down, we see that Fighter Jet Gray (similar to Cactus Gray) will be joined by Robin's Egg Blue, a shade inspired by the iconic Wind Blue hue offered on the original Bronco between 1972-1975. Peak Blue Metallic, Yellowstone, and Eruption Green Metallic are also offered. Code Orange makes a welcome return with Race Red adding further vibrance to the range. Those who prefer less shouty shades can opt for Terrain, Lead Foot Gray, or Iconic Silver Metallic, with Velocity Blue Metallic the last of 11 colors to be offered on the new Bronco. Oxford White and Shadow Black are not listed on the website, but we suspect that these colors have not departed.
In addition to an expansive color palette, 2023 Broncos should finally include the long-awaited Heritage Edition in the lineup. This special model is expected to wear Wimbledon White paint as the original Bronco did in 1966. Rapid Red stripes and silver accents are also likely, along with old-school four-slot wheels. The Bronco Everglades will be available too, bringing with it a snorkel, a winch, and all the other off-road upgrades supplied by the Sasquatch package.
While we're excited to learn more of the 2023 Ford Bronco's options, we feel for those who have waited such a long time to get their orders. Hopefully, 2023 will see the supply chain issues begin to come to an end.
