Ford Bronco Sport - Consumer Reports

Ford Bronco Sport


Current Model
The Bronco Sport is a small SUV based on the Escape that’s been sprinkled with rugged styling cues. With its increased ground clearance, a more capable four-wheel-drive system, and shorter overhangs than the Escape, the Bronco Sport is fit for mild off-roading.
Most versions come with a 181-hp, turbocharged three-cylinder engine that packs decent punch but vibrates annoyingly at very low revs. Higher trims get a 245-hp turbo four-cylinder that's much more refined. An eight-speed automatic and 4WD come standard. The ride is quite firm, but handling is taut and agile. The controls are very easy to use, including the infotainment system with its standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Standard active safety and driver assist features include FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, BSW, RCTW, and LDW.

2021 Redesign Year
The all-new 2021 Bronco Sport is aimed at small SUV buyers who have a penchant for off-road adventure. It’s based on the Escape, but increased ground clearance, a more serious four-wheel-drive system, and short overhangs make it a niche, rugged player in the small SUV segment.
Lower trims come with a 181-hp, turbo three-cylinder engine, with higher trims getting a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder with 245 hp. An 8-speed automatic and four-wheel drive come standard. Inside, there’s an 8-inch touch screen for the Sync 3 infotainment system, with standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Standard advanced driver assistance features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic warning, lane keeping assistance, and automatic high beams.
