Ford Bronco Sport Subcompact Crossover SUV

MSRP 26660 USDNEX score 77%

Product Overview

Ford Bronco Sport is a subcompact crossover launched together with the more off-road oriented 6th-gen Bronco launched at the same time.
Unlike the body-on-frame Bronco, which comes with 4WD, two transfer case options, and locking front and rear differentials, the Ford Bronco Sport has a standard all-wheel drive (AWD) configuration with a rear locking differential. All Bronco Sport models feature an independent front and rear suspension optimized to help drivers confidently maintain vehicle composure while aggressively taking on rugged terrain.
The vehicle's Terrain Management System with up to seven available G.O.A.T. Modes helps drivers “go over any type of terrain” and in various conditions. Standard modes include Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery and Sand; Mud/Ruts and Rock Crawl modes are available on Badlands and First Edition.
The Bronco Sport is smartly designed to transport two mountain bikes standing up in its cargo area – and two cyclists up front. Four available accessory bundles – in addition to more than 100 factory-backed standalone accessories – let owners easily make the vehicle their own by outfitting it to transport kayaks, skis, camping equipment or whatever gear propels their adventure.
The Bronco Sport also features liftgate LED floodlamps, MOLLE straps to carry extra gear, zippered seatback pockets for additional stowage, and a built-in bottle opener in the cargo area.
In terms of technology, the vehicle features a SYNC 3 system with an 8-inch touch screen and compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other available technology features include Ford+Alexa and SiriusXM satellite radio. The Ford Co-Pilot360 suite of advanced driver-assist technologies is standard across the lineup, including Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking featuring Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning and Dynamic Brake Support, Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Keeping System, Auto High Beam Headlamps and a rearview camera.

Sentiment Score 77%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
For a crossover that starts at about $34,000 including destination, the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport Badlands packs a solid amount of technology. Even the $28,000-ish base trim packs an 8-inch touchscreen running Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system. It's hard to have a bad time with Sync 3. While adventure gear aplenty may fit behind the second row, the BroncoSport Badlands lags behind several cars in terms of net cargo capacity.
