If you haven’t completely burnt out on all things Ford Bronco, we figured you might be interested in a trim breakdown, showing what each model looks like.
For 2021 Ford is starting with seven trims – including the First Edition, which is already fully reserved and will go away for 2022. Since the Jeep Wrangler has 13 trim levels, we expect Bronco to expand its lineup as the vehicle matures.
One thing to note about the trim progression is it’s not an entirely straight line of added content. After the Big Bend model, you splinter into three tiers: Black Diamond (active lifestyle) Outer Banks/Wildcat (more refinement) and Badlands/First Edition (ultimate off-road capability).
All pricing is listed 2-door/4-door (with the $1,495 destination fee), and the specific details include:

The bottom line
The Ford Bronco seems to check a lot of interesting off-road boxes – including easy-to-remove top and doors as well as a basically waterproofed interior, complete with floor drains, on certain models. The removable bumpers is also huge.
But if you’re looking to make more of a lifestyle statement rather than dig into the capability, Ford has you covered there as well with heated front seats and cool technology.
We can’t wait to see this vehicle in the flesh, and we’re excited to see what the 2022 model year brings in terms of specialty trim additions.
