Ford is very much aware that nostalgia sells, which is why it brought the Bronco back in not one, but two vehicles. The American automaker has released both the Bronco and a smaller crossover SUV known as the Bronco Sport. Ford has released the 2023 Bronco Sport Heritage Limited Edition to really up the nostalgia bait, which offers some stellar features that may draw even more shoppers in. Or will it?

Why is the 2023 Bronco Sport Heritage Limited Edition so special?

The all-new 2023 Bronco Sport Heritage Limited Edition is a perfect blend of modern features that shoppers crave, along with some of the styling that made the 1966 Bronco so popular with the off-roading community, according to J.D. Power. It continues to hold up the Bronco legacy by offering a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with advanced AWD, underbody skid plates, 29-inch knobby tires, and off-road suspension.

Ford doesn’t stop there and makes sure that the interior is just as great as the exterior. It does this by including heated power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. It’s the best of the off-roading world and luxury, and the Bronco Sport is selling well. In fact, in 2021, it actually outsold the Kia Soul

Some of the retro features that have the Bronco Sport Heritage Limited Edition turning heads are the front door nameplate script, alloy wheels, safari roof, and lift-gate “BRONCO” block lettering. It comes with an MSRP of $46,250. If this sounds like the type of vehicle you want, then you need to move fast because only 2,000 units of the 2023 Bronco Sport Heritage Limited Edition were built.

The Bronco Sport Heritage Limited Edition has insanely cool wheels

Two other factors help the 2023 Ford Bronco Sport Heritage Limited Edition stand out above the other available trims. These are white wheels and a white grille.

Whether it’s being driven on the city streets or crossing streams in the outback, the Bronco Sport is easily recognizable wherever it goes, thanks to the color-blocking. The roof is a different color from the rest of the Bronco’s body, and the Heritage Limited Edition takes this even further with the white wheels and white grille. When you pair this with exterior colors like Robin’s Egg Blue, Peak Blue, or Yellowstone Metallic, it’s clear that Ford is at the top of its game.

The result of the retro styling, modern features, off-road ability, luxury, and eye-catching colors is a vehicle that is undeniably cool, and shoppers are taking notice. But are the white wheels a dealbreaker for modern shoppers?

What’s the problem with the white accents?

As awesome looking as the white wheels and grilles are, many shoppers may not be interested in them. This is because white gets dirty easily when you drive it off the showroom floor and requires frequent washing to maintain its good looks.

Some off-roaders will consider a ton of mud on their Bronco Sport a sign of prestige and will strive to hit every mud puddle they can in order to cake it on. However, many Bronco Sport owners aren’t off-roaders and are buying it as much for its looks as they are for its power. Then there are the owners who buy it simply for the Bronco name and don’t care about anything else. 

These drivers will probably pass on the white wheels, as they don’t want to spend much time cruising through a car wash. Plenty of other Bronco Sport trims are available, however, and each has its unique charm.
