The 2024 Bronco offers plenty of choices with three engine options, a manual or automatic transmission, two different body styles, and nine trim levels: Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Badlands, Heritage Edition, Wildtrak, Everglades, Heritage Limited Edition, and Raptor. Most trims come as either a two-door hardtop or a four-door soft-top, but the Heritage Edition and Heritage Limited Edition are only built as two-door hardtops, and the Everglades and Raptor only come as four-door hardtops. Standard across the entire lineup are a detachable roof, removable doors, and a manual swing-gate with up to a 150-degree swing.
The Big Bend, Black Diamond, Badlands, and Heritage Edition get a 2.3-liter EcoBoost I-4 engine mated to a 7-speed manual gearbox by default, although a 10-speed automatic transmission is available. The Outer Banks and Everglades have the same 2.3-liter engine, but the automatic transmission comes standard. The Heritage Limited Edition and Wildtrak have a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission, while the Raptor packs a 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6 and the same auto transmission. These powertrain options all generate over 300 horsepower, and their towing capacities range from 3,500 to 4,500 pounds.
The standard drivetrain for the Big Bend through Outer Banks trim levels is 4×4 with part-time selectable engagement. The Badlands and above upgrade to advanced 4×4 with automatic on-demand engagement, although this drivetrain is available on all trims. Sophisticated suspensions can be found throughout the lineup, starting with the standard HOSS 1.0 system on the Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, and Heritage Edition. The Badlands, Everglades, and Heritage Limited Edition move up to the HOSS 2.0 system with Bilstein position-sensitive dampers. A higher ride height can be found onboard the Wildtrak thanks to the HOSS 3.0 package with FOX internal bypass dampers. For the off-road-minded driver, the Raptor has a HOSS 4.0 system with FOX Live Valve 3.1 internal bypass semi-active dampers.
Nearly every Bronco trim level is defined by a 2-door hardtop or 4-door soft-top body style, along with its own wheel and grille designs. The Big Bend lays the groundwork with 17-inch carbonized gray-painted aluminum wheels and 32-inch all-terrain tires, a carbonized gray-painted grille with white “BRONCO” lettering, LED headlights and fog lights, configurable daytime running lights, heated sideview mirrors, tow hooks (two front, one rear), remote keyless access with push-button start, marine-grade vinyl upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an 8-inch color LCD instrument panel, dual smart-charging USB ports in both rows, and three 12-volt power points (two center floor console and one cargo area).
The Black Diamond trades carbonized gray for high-gloss black on its 17-inch wheels and grille, and adds front-section bash plates, full-underbody bash plates, rock rails, cloth seating, heated front seats, and MOLLE panel integration into the front-row seatbacks. The Outer Banks bumps up to 18-inch bright machined black high gloss-painted aluminum wheels and adds a powder-coated tube step, LED signature headlights, remote start, intelligent access with push-button start, rubberized flooring with drain plugs, ambient footwell lighting, an AC power socket on the back of the center floor console, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and dual-zone automatic temperature control.
Rock rails and full-underbody bash plates return to the Badlands trim, along with 17-inch machined carbonized gray aluminum wheels and 33-inch all-terrain tires, a carbonized gray grille with white BRONCO lettering, a powder-coated steel front bumper, an additional rear tow hook, and marine grade vinyl inside the cabin. The Heritage Edition has 17-inch white wheels and 35-inch mud-terrain tires, a white hardtop roof, a white grille with red FORD lettering, bolt-on front and rear fenders, front-section bash plates, Heritage body-side graphics, and exclusive plaid cloth seating.
The Wildtrak gets 17-inch black high gloss-painted beadlock-capable wheels and 35-inch mud-terrain tires, a carbonized, gray grille with black BRONCO lettering, and a Wildtrak hood graphic. The Everglades brings back the bolt-on front and rear fenders, front-section and full-body bash plates, rock rails, and marine grade vinyl interior, and swaps high-gloss black for carbonized gray on its 17-inch wheels and grille. Its other trim-exclusive features include a heavy-duty modular front bumper, roof rails with crossbars, a snorkel system, a winch kit, and Everglades body-side graphics.
The white hardtop roof and grille return to the Heritage Limited Edition, which sits on 17-inch dog dish-style high-gloss black wheels and 35-inch mud-terrain whitewalls. Its other noteworthy features include a powder-coated steel front bumper, trim-specific body-side graphics, leather and vinyl-trimmed seating with perforated plaid inserts, a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, a B&O sound system, wireless device charging, and another pair of USB ports set into the dash.
The iconic Raptor stands out with 17-inch high-gloss black alloy wheels and 37-inch all-terrain tires, a unique front bumperette and removable end, a carbonized gray grille with maker lamps and black FORD lettering, LED fog lights and off-road headlights, a Raptor-specific hood, high-coverage fender flares, full-vehicle steel bash plates, rock rails with removable running boards, and exoskeleton reinforcement for the manual swing-gate.
All ‘24 Broncos have Ford Co-Pilot 360 installed. The included technologies are auto high-beam headlamps, pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, post-collision braking, AdvanceTrac with RSC (roll stability control), and trailer sway control. Hill descent control is added to manual transmission versions, while Trail Turn Assist and Trail Control are available on the automatic versions of most trims. The Black Diamond, Wildtrak, and Heritage Limited Edition also get Trail One-Pedal Drive, a system that allows the driver to accelerate and brake using just the accelerator, to facilitate off-road driving (this feature is available on most other trims in conjunction with the 2.7-liter or 3.0-liter engine and auto transmission).
The Outer Banks and above receive a lane-keeping system and reverse parking sensors, except for the Badlands, where those features must be added as options. The Heritage Limited Edition is fully loaded, getting forward parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, and a 360-degree monitor.
As mentioned, every 2024 Bronco now has a 12-inch LCD capacitive touchscreen with Ford’s SYNC 4 infotainment system, with enhanced voice recognition and swiping capabilities. Even the entry-level Big Bend comes well-connected with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, FordPass Connect, and SiriusXM satellite radio with 360L. The Black Diamond includes a 90-day trial subscription for the connected voice-activated touchscreen navigation system with pinch-to-zoom functionality. The Heritage Limited Edition upgrades its audio setup with a sound system by Bang & Olufsen with ten speakers and a subwoofer (available on the Raptor).
