I'm considering a Bronco Sport, although I'm not sure which trim level I prefer. One thing I'm not sure I'll like is the copper/orange plastic trim pieces under the touch screen and on the doors. While some photos make it look like these pieces are fairly low key, other photos make it appear as if these trim peices are bright orange, which I don't particularly like. For those that own a Badlands or have seen them in person, how brightly orange are these trim pieces? Would it be possible to change them out or alter them if they are too bright?

Those trim pieces come in both a bright orange and a pretty low-key bronze and some other colors too. It depends on the Badlands that you order what color they will be. The '21 Badlands package upgrades you to a leather interior and changes the orange parts for a bronze color. I think the '22 Premium package works the same way, but just check when you shop.

This is a pic of my cubby area with a flash that makes the color show as much as possible. When I am driving around, it just looks like the area around the ignition switch. This is the Badland package color.

It would be possible to remove and paint/wrap it. But that is a severe amount of work. You have to pull the whole radio and screen and the whole a/c vent and instrument cluster to release this piece.

There are other trim colors.

I have an OB. The trim is what I would call a bronze. Low key, not orange. I tried to take pictures, but my phone made it look brighter.

My OB has the bronze/copper trim. When I saw the pics on Ford's website I thought it was kinda ugly but when I saw it in person it was really Ok looking....I don't mind it at all

The orange is less bright orange than you might think. It honestly works really well as an accent color, especially with a blue exterior like area 51. It's definitely orange, and if it covered larger areas, it might be too much, but I find it to be a really nice touch with the way they've done it.

Darker copper, more like a burnt copper. (EDIT: This sentence wasn't intended to survive in my reply.)

2021 Bronco Sport, Badlands edition, Badlands leather package (Ebony & Roast) -- trim color is somewhere between copper-bronze and oiled bronze, depending on ambient lighting levels, origin, and lighting polarization.

I have the Badlands and the trim is Bronze. Nice contrast to the dash.

I have a OB and I think the bronze looks pretty nice, not cheap or gaudy, kind of looks upmarket.
