The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is about to change the way adventure seekers find their next thrill. With five unique options, each trim level is designed for your own personal outdoor adventure. Ford has thought through what outdoor lovers really want in a vehicle and is delivering the capability to handle virtually any terrain with an interior to match its exterior brawn. From specialized driving modes to standard four-wheel drive, the 2021 Bronco Sport will tame the wildest places you can discover in the world.
If the larger Ford Bronco is more vehicle than you need, the Bronco Sport is a spry SUV that can confidently take on rugged terrain with a smaller footprint. Buyers will still enjoy generous interior space with up to 65.2 cubic feet of cargo room that is tall enough for bikes to be rolled inside standing upright and a versatile roof rack that can support either your gear or a tent if you plan to camp at your destination. For the buyers who are weekend warriors, the Bronco Sport will be the perfect companion to drive on a daily commute and just as comfortable on the road as it is tackling trails.
For the new Bronco Sport, Ford is offering five different trim levels, each designed to take on a specific type of lifestyle with the outdoors in mind. The entry-level Base trim is made to experience a well-rounded style of exploration, with standard four-wheel drive, five GOAT (goes over any type of terrain) modes, and electronic traction control. Ingenious features like the safari-style roof, adjustable rear-gate floodlights, and flip-up glass in the liftgate make the Base Bronco Sport a simple choice for those who enjoy variety in their adventures.
The Big Bend is the second trim level, geared toward explorers who want to live spontaneously. With rubberized, removable floor mats, you can head to the beach, take your dogs to the river for a dip, or return from a hike with muddy boots and you won’t have to worry. Both the cloth seats and the flooring are made to be easily wiped down or taken out for cleaning. When you want to range freely without having to keep track of your keys, the standard keypad will allow you to leave them behind safely. LED fog lights will track around corners and bends in the road so you can see where you’re headed, which is especially handy in the woods at night.
Third in line is the Outer Banks trim, which is designed with more refinement in mind. Leather seating on the interior and black accents on the exterior make the styling stand out in town, but the Outer Banks trim can still head to the beach and climb the dunes as easily as it rides the highway. Comforts like heated seats, ambient lighting, and a remote start system set the standard for easy living, while rain-sensing wipers, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and zipper pockets on the seatbacks will further simplify your day trips and weekend jaunts wherever your heart wants to go.
With the Badlands trim, Ford offers its most capable Bronco Sport. This is the trim to buy if you want to ride trails in the wilderness, ford water, and find the most remote camping areas away from civilization - because you can. An upgraded engine, advanced twin-clutch rear drive unit, and the addition of two more GOAT modes make it possible to rock crawl and drive through virtually any terrain. Underbody bash plates protect the vitals of your Bronco Sport when you go where most vehicles can’t follow. With the help of the standard power converter in the rear cargo area, you can go as remote as you want and still plugin powered devices.
At the top tier, the First Edition trim is the luxury of the Outer Banks mixed with the hard-edged capability of the Badlands trims. In short, it is all the best of what this vehicle has to offer. Drive anywhere you please in ultimate comfort. No barriers and no compromises. The First Edition Bronco Sport is only available through reservations for limited production. When it comes to the Bronco Sport, no matter which trim you choose to go with, you are getting a vehicle that is one of a kind.
Ford has created a vehicle that truly pulls ahead of the pack, and part of what makes the Bronco Sport so unique is the exterior features. While the looks are modern and classic all at once, the capability of what this SUV can do is a marvel. It’s got both the agility for off-roading and versatility in its features with camping and day-tripping in mind. No matter which Bronco Sport you buy, it will come with a high-performance off-road stability suspension system built to take a beating but also to keep your ride smooth on the highway. It’s the best of both worlds when you live in the city and love to head into the hills at the drop of a hat.
With standard four-wheel drive on all models, your Bronco Sport can take on any terrain, whether it’s slippery ice and snow, sand, mud, rocks, or even water. Though the Badlands model offers the most capability with its off-road prowess, all the Bronco Sport models can handle extreme weather and terrain. While you conquer the outdoors, the Bronco Sport can carry up to 150 pounds of your gear on the roof, and then when you stop for the day, you can pitch a tent on that same roof that will hold up to 600 pounds. All this and more if you go with the Badlands trim to add features like Trail Control that acts like cruise control for crawling at low speeds, a raised ground clearance of 8.8 inches, tow hooks, and bash plates to protect the underbody.
All the exterior ingenuity is continued inside the 2021 Bronco Sport to keep you organized, turn your cargo area into a base camp, and make driving a lot more fun. Thoughtful storage solutions are some of the most remarkable features inside the Bronco Sport, with a MOLLE strap system to attach gear (great for climbers and hikers), shelves in the center stack, zippered pockets on the seatbacks, and pockets on the sides of the seats. The available cargo management system will keep your supplies and gear separated into compartments in the rear cargo area, plus it turns into a table you can use with the liftgate open when you arrive at your destination. Under-seat storage is standard on the Badlands trim, so you can stash items out of sight.
Tie-downs and hooks are located throughout the back portion of the Bronco Sport so you can safely travel with your bikes, gear, and supplies. A handy bottle opener is located at the side of the liftgate so you can travel with your favorite refreshment without having to pack more utensils. All this organization is only elevated by the tech to be found with the Sync 3 infotainment system. Breadcrumb navigation remembers your route so you can get home again, an available trail camera with a built-in washer to provide 180-degree views of what’s ahead, and the Ford CoPilot360 suite of safety features will keep your Bronco Sport safe on the road. Available wireless charging and Sirius XM navigation will add even more freedom to your adventure.
