The Ford Bronco has always been a symbol of adventure, and after a long-awaited return, the new Bronco has returned with a bang. Its retro-modern styling pays homage to the original Bronco design but is now jam-packed with modern features like leather heated seats, navigation, and many driver safety options.
Contrary to popular belief, the Ford Bronco features heated seats. But it isn't a standard feature. Certain trim levels include optional leather and heated seats, while others will not.
Read more below to find out which trim levels of the Ford Bronco offer heated seats, new and exciting features, and how to take care of your new interior.
New Interior Features in the Ford Bronco
As the new Bronco is built to take the path less traveled, Ford engineers incorporated several new interior features to help make your journeys more comfortable and enjoyable.
Easy to clean and low maintenance were at the top of the list. Black Diamond, Badlands, Everglades, and Raptor models feature rubberized floor mats with integrated drain plugs for hosing down your interior after playing in the mud all day.
G.O.A.T mode allows you to take on nature's most challenging terrain with seven modes, such as Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery, and Sand, for off-road adventures. It also includes optional heated leather or leather seats for those cold winter months to make your trips more enjoyable.
Trail Turn Assist
Trail turn assist is another new feature offered on the Ford Bronco. It helps you get around tight bends or obstacles on the trails by applying the rear brake on the inside rear wheel. This innovative technology is why the new Ford Bronco is considered an off-road beast.
Ford Trail Control
Ford's trail control is essentially cruise control for the backroads. The feature allows the vehicle to maintain a constant low speed to make enjoying the scenery much easier. It's available at the push of a button only for Bronco's equipped with an automatic transmission.
Another feature for real off-road enthusiasts is the 1-Pedal Drive mode. With minimal effort, you can drive forward with just one pedal. When you press on the accelerator, the Brongo starts moving forward. When you take your foot off the pedal, the brakes apply automatically. Feathering the gas and brakes while descending a steep slope is no longer necessary.
Upgrade Packages Ford Bronco Offers
With 10 trim levels available, the Frod Bronco offers something for everyone. Each trim level has various features, including heated seats, exclusive trail modes, and unique appearance packages.
All packages include Go Over Any Terrain (G.O.A.T) modes and 4x4 with part or full-time selectable management.
Moving up the ladder, the Badlands model has unique 17" wheels, 33" tires, and a front trail bar disconnect. If that's not enough, a set of wheels and tires from XT will change the aspect and off-road performance.
Another exciting Bronco upgrade package is the Everglades trim. An integrated Warn winch, factory snorkel, and marine-grade vinyl seats that are purpose-built to take a beating will take you to places you have never thought possible.
Finally, the Raptor package takes things to the next level with 37" tires, Fox Live valve Dampers, and 360-degree camera technology. Power-wise, the 3.0L EcoBoost engine provides plenty of grunts to tackle the toughest terrain and steepest grades.
With all the new tech the Ford bronco offers, there is room for improvement. Light bars, lift kits, and custom bumpers from XT are just a few ways to make your Bronco truly unique.
How to Protect Your New Interior
Investing in quality interior care products is essential. The interior fabrics should be regularly vacuumed, while the leather surfaces can be maintained using a dedicated leather or vinyl cleaner. Consider applying a quality leather or fabric protector after cleaning for maximum protection.
The dash and other plastic surfaces must be cleaned and protected with a plastic cleaner and U.V. protection. Finally, make sure to keep your windows clean for improved visibility.
If you have the optional vinyl floor with drain plugs, use a quality cleaner when hosing down the interior after a day of off-roading. Using water alone, in some cases, may not do the job. In either case. Be sure all the water is drained from the floor properly before putting the plugs back in.
The Bottom Line
The new Ford Bronco offers many features, upgrades, and interior protection options. With heated leather or cloth seats, trail control, G.O.A.T modes, 1-Pedal Drive mode, and upgrade packages such as the Badlands, Everglades, and Raptor—the Ford Bronco is the perfect off-road vehicle for any adventure.
