Why would the design team put a chrome emblem on a vehicle with all black trim?

Tailgate Bronco to match the white top and white wheels. Fenders and grille will be A51 to match body. Chrome to give it just that bit of classic touch.

I would think hard about the body colored grill. Though I like the rest of your plan. Chrome grille with A51 lettering might be good. Winch and bumper choices could affect the grille too. Food for thought.

The chrome lug nuts bug me on the FE, I ordered black replacements.

Maybe this doesn't bug too many in here but why would the design team put a chrome emblem on a vehicle with all black trim? I don't know why I'm just now pondering this after seeing the black first editions. Lugnuts and trim rings as well.....
So Ford can distinguish its special edition models with the black emblems - with Ford paying nothing additional but with you paying much more - it makes for a bigger bottom line for Ford 🤑

Many questionable choices by Ford. Bronze dashboards with blue stitching, chrome emblems, black trim that doesn't match hardtop/grille. Still buying one. Lol

I feel the same about the chrome lug nuts on the BD. Stupidly, I ordered the wheel lock kit before I thought about the fact that they are chrome and the wheels are black. Haven't paid for those wheel locks yet but they've been ordered and should be at the dealership already. When I pickup my Bronco and pay for the other accessories I ordered, I'm going to ask if we can just skip the wheel locks. They should be able to hold them and sell to the next person that wants them, but if they push for me to buy them, I probably will since I asked them to order it. The chrome bucking bronco in the center of the wheel does help balance out the chrome lug nuts, so not a huge deal I guess.

This has me thinking. I wonder what it would look like to remove the decals/stickers and put the polished black Bronco in their place. Remove the Bronco from the tailgate and replace with Bronco script or the decal/sticker.

anybody else thought of this or tried it?

Forgot to mention that the bumpers I'm getting will be white too!
