Physically, the Bronco Sport looks similar to its big brother, the Bronco. With square headlights, and an athletic silhouette, from the front, it has a similar configuration to the Bronco, with the badge and LED strip coming out of the headlights. The black plastic coating around the wheel arches on the sides gives it a more sporty look.
Don't look for a two-door version though. The Bronco Sport is only available in a 4-door configuration. However, fans will be able to give their Sport a unique look as it is available in ten different colours. The Cyber Blast Orange, however is only available for the top-of-the-range Badlands model.
The rear of the Bronco Sport is just as recognizable. It is equipped with a folding window and LED taillights.
Meanwhile, the interior is just as stylish as the exterior. The raised roof offers ample headroom, and the cargo area is the largest in its class and can accommodate two mountain bikes- if you have the optional accessory to do so! There's even a storage bin under the rear seats to store your muddy clothes once the ride is over.
And some versions even have washable rubber floor mats!
Techno and Comfortable
The 2021 Bronco Sport's dashboard will be quite familiar to Ford vehicle enthusiasts. It features traditional controls as well as an 8-inch touch screen that houses the innovative Sync 3 multifunction system. Either Apple Car Play or Android Auto are also available, offering further convenient utility for the user.
Make no mistake, Ford designers and engineers have ensured that the Sport comes equipped with features designed to make it easy to drive. Of course, it has a rearview camera as standard, and a front-facing camera pointing to the trails if necessary.
To make the possibility of off-roading even easier, the Bronco Sport also gets the GOAT (Go Over Any Terrain) system, a driving mode selector that allows you to select more extreme modes, such as Slipper, Sand, Baja, Mud, and Rock Crawling. The latter is only available on the Badlands version, however. Of course Normal, Eco, Sport modes are also available.
On the powertrain side, the Bronco Sport borrows two proven engines from the Ford Escape. With the exception of the Badlands version, all models come with a turbocharged 1.5-litre three-cylinder block, The result is 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque.
With the 2021 Bronco Sport Badlands, expect a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 250 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque.
