Ford adds smaller Bronco Sport to all-new 2021 Bronco lineup
In addition to the 2021 Bronco, Ford Motor Company has also announced an all-new Bronco Sport. The Bronco Sport will be smaller than the Bronco, and available with different driveline options.
The Bronco Sport will be available in five different trim levels, including the base trim, Big Bend, Outer Banks, Badlands and First Edition. The Badlands and First Edition series are powered by a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine that produces a targeted best-in-class 245 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque for high-speed off-road performance. Base, Big Bend and Outer Banks trims feature the proven 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine with a targeted 181 horsepower and 190 lb.-ft. of torque.
Both engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, while Bronco Sport Badlands and First Edition add SelectShift® with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters to help drivers maximize control both on- and off-road. A cooling system with additional transmission and rear-drive coolers keeps 2.0-liter models running strong over tough terrain.
The Bronco Sport will include an innovative slide-out working table, part of an available five-way configurable cargo management system, plus a class-exclusive 400-watt inverter and liftgate floodlamps that illuminate up to 129 square feet .
Reservations for Bronco Sport open today at http://www.ford.com; vehicles can be reserved for $100.
The 2021 Bronco Sport is expected to arrive in dealerships late this year.
