Judging by sold listings on eBay, the $126,500 auction price is very high for a Bronco First Edition. The most expensive one there went for $109,500. A handful of others went for over $100,000, but most sales have been in the $80,000 to $90,000 range.
The Bronco First Edition was limited to 7000 units, and they're all accounted for, but someone has already listed one on eBay in Long Island, NY, for an absurd price of $150,000.
With many trim levels available, the most sought-after was the First Edition. This trim was made as a limited edition with only 7,000 units made. Each one of these Broncos was sold as a pre-order to people who had been on the waitlist for months on end, the most impatient and excited of the bunch.
Ford is converting the 2021 Ford Bronco to the 2022 Ford Bronco. The 2022 Ford Bronco won't have an option to order a Bronco First Edition. This means that at least a few people who had ordered a 2021 Ford Bronco First Edition may be out of luck.
Ford had limited the production of the 2021 Ford Bronco First Edition to only 7,000 vehicles. With the Bronco being as popular as it is, that ensures a mad dash for these vehicles. Like most vehicles on the planet right now, the prices are skyrocketing due to demand and low supply.
Says Ford, the Bronco First Edition comes with the mechanics of the Badlands version of the new SUV, combined with the best interior elements of the Outer Banks trim and the exterior of the Wildtrak model.
Ford also offers many of the Wildtrack's upgrades in the $5,000 Sasquatch Package.
The Bronco is so exclusive that its scarcity has created a resale market making the vehicle's price skyrocket. The demand for the Bronco has made an expensive SUV even more expensive.
The First Edition can be spotted externally by its unique hood and side graphics, black hardtop, and safari bar over the front grille. Five colors are available: Cactus Gray, Area 51 (blue/gray), Rapid Red, Cyber Orange, and Lightning Blue.
Bronco Sales: 9,168 vehicles. Sales (YTD): 35,023 vehicles.

A Ford Bronco will depreciate 52% after 5 years and have a 5 year resale value of $21,771. The chart below shows the expected depreciation for the next 10 years. These results are for vehicles in good condition, averaging 12,000 miles per year. It also assumes a selling price of $45,178 when new.
IMO the Bronco overall will have a decent resale value beginning with 2022MY but maybe not so much so for the 2021MY considering MIC top issues among other things.
