Come on bronco fans....there was never a "baby blue" color. Arcadian blue, sky blue, Diamond blue, light blue and Wind blue were all very similar. I wonder who coined the baby blue, because it never was lol. My 66 is Arcadian. Wonder why a black top is considered "Heritage"? Because that never happened either. They were all Wimbledon white except for a few Explorer packages with the same body color paint. Ironically my white 71' was originally Mallard Green, which was the first year it was offered. I was "heritage" before heritage was popular I guess lol.

Perhaps something has changed, but I've seen the squared off flare on a pre-production MY'21 fender and quarter panel before camo was applied. Many from the media proclaim that the fenders/quarter panels are different on the Everglades (not accounting for the actual cut-out for the snorkel). But think about it logically, Ford isn't going to have unique fenders/quarter panels for an edition that is slotted between the common trims.
Yeah I saw them on the MY21 pre-production vehicles too.

I do think the panels/fenders are unique panels. BUT, I disagree with @SubmarineNuke … it should be an easy swap. The panels on the Bronco are just bolt-on so it isn’t like Ford has modify the entire assembly process to produce different quarter panels. Just literally stamp out and bolt on a different panel to the same mounting locations as the standard panels.

Obviously from our perspective the problem is going to be the paint-matching that panel. But if you get over that hurdle it should be a simple swap.

From what I gathered in the TFL Everglades video, the quarter panels are different on the squared off flare. I think they're cut different, it didn't sound to me like it was an easy swap over. You'd have to replaced the entire quarter panel, just to get that square flare. And the Everglades only had the squares on 2 wheels.
Damn that sucks but makes sense I thought the part were you
Snap them in and lock would be the same but makes sense they are not

So, is the Heritage Model an Everglades without the Snorkel and Winch? Will it have a White Grill? Nothing really Heritage or Classic about it???

This Wind Blue with a Wimbledon White Top, Grill and Wheels from Ford would sell Big Time. Then call it a Heritage.

Interest is piqued, but not the biggest fan of the baby blue on it. Depending on the the colors offered and options, I could see myself swapping to this, I bet if anyone does, price protection goes out the window.

The camo makes it really hard to tell, even magnified, but it doesn't look like the wheel arch bulge body like is rounded and that it follows the shape of the flares.

Also. Yes! the modular top finally. I've wanted this from the get go.

Fair enough, but I was referring to area in which I live. You have UNC, Duke, and NCSU in close proximity. If you aren't a UNC fan, you wouldn't be caught dead with that color.
Hence my race red in the garage right now!

Something about the Gen6 that absolutely doesn’t make white accessories work. Especially the top.
this white top in the pic looks awful. So does every single other customized one we’ve seen. White top; White grill; all looks bad.

We’re you afraid to walk in the grass to get shots of the front, or was armed security preventing you from doing it.

I like it for a heritage color, should appease those who were clamoring for a Britney Blue type color. (Or maybe not, we’ll see.)
My 1st color choice would be Brittany Blue. This blue not for me at all.

I'm with him on this. I like the white top look in general and had tentatively planned on getting mine wrapped, but after seeing some examples,
