Bronco Trim Features and Equipment

Bronco Trim Features and Equipment

Trying to decide which Bronco trim level is right for you? The sixth-gen Bronco came with a long list of trims, all with enticing names that only hint at capabilities. The goal of this is pretty straightforward. If you want a rugged off-roader, there’s a Bronco for you, pre-equipped with a list of equipment designed to meet your needs.

Every trim is available in both 2- and 4-door configurations.

Here’s a little bit about each trim, how to decide which is for you, and how to get the biggest bang for your buck.

Standard Features

The features are how each Bronco trim makes itself distinct. But even the base Bronco is feature-rich. All Broncos will come with:

  • Easily removable doors and roof
  • SYNC 4 with 8-inch touchscreen
  • LED headlamps
  • Black door handles mirror caps
  • Fender flares and fender tie-down hooks
  • Manual air-conditioning
  • Push button start

The individual trim options are:

Base Trim | Big Bend | Black Diamond | Outer Banks | Badlands | Wildtrak | First Edition

Base

Bare Bones or Blank Canvas

Base Trim Features
FeatureBase Bronco
Cost 2-Door: $28,500
4-Door: $33,200
Engine 2.3L EcoBoost
Optional: 2.7L EcoBoost
Transmission 7-Speed Manual with Crawler Gear
Optional: 10-Speed Automatic with Trail Control
G.O.A.T. Modes Normal, ECO, Sport, Slippery, and Sand
Wheels and Tires 16-inch silver-painted steel wheels 30-inch P255/70R16 all-season tires
4WD System 4x4 with part-time selectable engagement Optional: Advanced 4x4 with automatic on-demand engagement

This trim is perfect for anyone who doesn’t need amenities (of any variety, you’ll be rollin’ on steelies with this). Or, the person who knows their needs are so specialized, the only way they’re getting there involves some wrench time.

If that sounds like you, the Base Bronco is perfect. Seriously. That’s why we decided to get one. If you’ve got your heart set on building out your own Bronco equipment list, then this trim will save you money.

You can also equip this trim with the Sasquatch package. That gives it some from-the-factory off-road tech. Then you can build it up to suit you.

Big Bend

Mainstream Off-Roading

Big Bend Trim Features
FeatureBig Bend Bronco
Cost 2-Door: $33,385
4-Door: $35,880
Engine 2.3L EcoBoost
Optional: 2.7L EcoBoost
Transmission 7-Speed Manual with Crawler Gear
Optional: 10-Speed Automatic with Trail Control
G.O.A.T. Modes Normal, ECO, Sport, Slippery, Sand, and Mud/Ruts
Wheels and Tires 17-inch Carbonized Gray-painted aluminum wheels 32-inch P255/75R17 all-terrain tires
4WD System 4x4 with part-time selectable engagement Optional: Advanced 4x4 with automatic on-demand engagement

This trim adds features that are nice to have in a modern vehicle. Think leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated seats, and remote start.

You’ll also get slightly bigger wheels (a full inch bigger) and an extra G.O.A.T mode for dealing with mud and ruts.

If you’re looking for a cost-effective option that won’t require any building for a while, this is a perfect option. While the base model is truly lacking any comfort or amenities, this is a solid vehicle. It includes all of the features that you would expect in a modern off-roader while still leaving the door wide open for future modifications.

Black Diamond

Adventure Off-Roading

Black Diamond Trim Features
FeatureBlack Diamond Bronco
Cost 2-Door: $36,050
4-Door: $38,545
Engine 2.3L EcoBoost
Optional: 2.7L EcoBoost
Transmission 7-Speed Manual with Crawler Gear
Optional: 10-Speed Automatic with Trail Control
G.O.A.T. Modes Normal, ECO, Sport, Slippery, Sand, Mud/Ruts, and Rock Crawl
Wheels and Tires 17-inch black-painted steel wheels 32-inch LT265/70R17 all-terrain tires
4WD System 4x4 with part-time selectable engagement Optional: Advanced 4x4 with automatic on-demand engagement

The Black Diamond trim comes ready to take on some pretty serious trails right from the dealership.

7 G.O.A.T modes, front and rear steel bumpers, heavy-duty skid plates, and a locking rear diff are all awesome off-road features. A lot of people argue that if you plan on doing heavy off-roading, this is the lowest trim you should consider.

That’s honestly a pretty sensible opinion. The vinyl seats and washout interior are perfect for getting dirty (and clean), and the cost of adding that off-road tech is greater than the added cost to get this trim from the get-go.

While some of the more premium trims offer even more off-road tech, this is already perfect for riding over tough terrain. Outfit it with a Sasquatch package for even more off-road prowess.

If you’re really serious about off-roading, this is the trim to start at.

4WD System 4x4 with part-time selectable engagement Optional: Advanced 4x4 with automatic on-demand engagement

Do you like off-roading but also like comfort? Are you the type of person who likes to bring a cooler full of steak and beer with you on your camping trips? Then you’re going to want to consider the Outer Banks trim.

Some of the Outer Banks’ luxury items are appearance upgrades. Body-color fender flares and signature LED headlights and taillights make this trim look nice. But you can also opt for a 12” SYNC 4 infotainment screen and a B&O sound system.

While most upgrades for the Bronco are a la carte, the 10-speed automatic transmission comes standard with this one. I mean, you can’t select a new playlist and shift, right? If you’re looking for a trim that you could take the family on vacation with (maybe to the Outer Banks?) and have everyone feel comfortable, this is a great trim option

The Wildtrak is the range-topper. It comes with the Sasquatch Package, standard. This means 35-inch tires wrapped around 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels. If that’s not enough, the front and rear diffs and Bilstein shocks are also standard. Plus, the engine is the twin-turbo 2.7 EcoBoost with 10-speed automatic. With a black hardtop, wheels, and grille (plus unique hood graphic), it’s sure to stand out. Technically the Bronco Raptor trim is above the Wildtrak, but in terms of dollars to value the Wildtrak is king. The Raptor does come equipped with a few extra off-road upgrades, including 37-inch tires.

The First Edition is an amazing blend of the other Bronco trims. It takes the best bits of each. This means it has the luxurious Outer Banks interior, the mechanicals of the Badlands, and exterior of the Wildtrak. Originally, only 3,500 were to be built and all were quickly reserved. Since then, Ford has doubled the total number of First Edition Broncos to 7,000 (which have all been spoken for).

Which Bronco Trim Is Right for You?

All of which brings us to, how do you even begin to decide which is right for you? Here’s a quick look at who we think each of these trims is right for.

Off-Roader on a Budget

Getting the base Bronco and adding the Sasquatch package is the easiest way to get off-road for the least amount possible. Couple with a few mods, and you’ll be ready for a lot of terrain right off the lot.

Off-Roader with Big Plans

The Badlands trim is pretty universally acknowledged as “worth it” if you’re an off-roader who isn’t on a budget. You can make it luxurious with your choice of packages, or keep it simple.

While the bump in cost is significant when compared to the Base, it includes a lot of high-dollar mods already installed. If you like the idea of a little luxury but don’t have the money to pony up for the Badlands, then a Black Diamond trim is a great compromise.

In general, if you’re on a budget, a Black Diamond with a Sasquatch package may offer more utility than the Badlands.

Family Vacations, Camping Trips, and Tailgates

If you’re mostly looking forward to family beach trips, tailgating before football games, and otherwise spending time with those closest to you, you’ll want the Outer Banks trim. This cost-effective option offers a lot of game-changing upgrades. The easy-to-clean interior is especially appealing to people who bring their kids on long trips that involve eating in the car.

And, because this trim opens up a lot of package options, you can add some luxury. Sure, talking to your family is great. But when energy levels and conversation dip, it’s nice to have a premium sound system to listen to music or a podcast through.

The Best of the Best

If you only want the best, you actually have a few options. For the standard Bronco trims, the Wildtrak is considered the range-topper. This trim combines some of the best off-roading features with the most desired comfort ones. It’s designed to offer high-speed off-roading, which is great for people who want to dominate on the highway and the trail.

If you’re an off-roader who wants a model specced specifically off-road, you can also try to find a Bronco Raptor. The Raptor trim level is designed to add some serious off-road gear. On the other hand, if you’re an off-roader who prefers navigating swamps and muddy terrain, the Everglades model might be the right one for you.

A Bronco Trim for Everyone

The total number of Bronco trims might be bordering on excessive. 9? But it does mean that there is actually a Bronco trim for everyone. Whether you want a luxury off-roader, a bare bones 4WD, or a serious performance beast, there’s a Bronco that’ll suit your needs.

The sixth-generation Bronco has been a huge success for Ford (or will be as soon as they make a few more). But if you’re serious you may want to get an order in now.
