I just saw a mention of this on the Motor Trend web site. They state the rumor is Ford has discontinued the Base and will add the Heritage . The article doesn’t provide concrete evidence of this but it has been published none the less.

Heritage is a better name than Base anyway. "Base", what were they thinking?

As I found... You can access the entire 2-door base B&P... You just have to go to 2-door Black Diamond, add Mid, click on manual tranny, and BOOM you are in the Base B&P.🤪
Lol. It is taking me to Big Bend now when i do that. When I was building before it did the samething to me.

Best one is you can go to Build and price under Bronco, click change vehicle, then it brings up the 2021 Bronco you can click on and build the MY21 😆

I work in IT, and this would likely be a significant issue to be fixed promptly, given it is customer facing and having potential impact driving sales. Odd this build functionality is left broken for days, it's right there in the main build page, and prevents access to all base builds.
Its all good they have #rockstars there.

Per my recollection of the early materials; "Base Camp". A place to start from.
The Everest Base Camps are at ~17,000 feet. The only "vehicle" that can get up there is a yak. Lends some cachet to the Bronco trim name.

Sounds like standard modern journalism there.

More magic. Select the Big Bend. Instead of selecting mid under "Equipment Groups," select it under "Packages." It turns into a Big Bend. Now change it to a manual transmission. It turns into a Badlands.

If the change to Heritage name ends up jacking the base cost, that will be the last straw of this whole drawn out vehicle launch. :(

Here is a link to the rumor story you mentioned:

Ford is laughing their asses off right now, probably did this on purpose. They dangled another shiny object out there to give us something to bitch about instead of crappy dealers and delays.
