There is no new car market that is more crowded than today’s small crossover SUV market. Almost all of them have no obligation to obtain a new driver’s license. These models are usually cross-border cars, which are actually competent in daily work, but few of them stand out, and the rare and precious ones will still attract people̵
It doesn’t matter, the nameplate of this model is associated with Ford’s new 4×4 bumper car, and the new Bronco Sport is actually linked to the latestThis is one of the two-pronged attacks by Dearborn automakers on this market segment. Although the latter has a streamlined urban vibe, this Bronco Sport weekend adventure in an inaccessible place costs much more than verbal services. To this end, it seeks to give Ford the legendary Bronco name.
The internal off-road spirit of this SUV is perfectly conveyed through the purposeful appearance of the model. Like its larger Bronco siblings, the Bronco Sport has simple, historic front graphics with an integrated grille, round headlights, pointed fenders and clean body sides, using moderate Swage the lines to break the surface. The stepped roofline not only helps provide better rear seat space (while exuding the shock of the Land Rover Freelander in the 1990s), it also allows two mountain bikes to be placed inside the rear seat down. You need to remove the front wheels, but the available Yakima racks authorized by the factory allow you to securely lock expensive two-wheelers in the cargo compartment without having to tie them to the roof.
Bronco Sport is ready for base camp
In fact, the cargo area seems to be one of the most innovative and unique aspects of Bronco Sport. There are LED spotlights available on the lift door (which itself includes reversible glass), as well as handles like towel bars for drying equipment. With a 400-watt power inverter and a bottle opener, Bronco Sport is an ideal place for camping. patient? Adjustable multi-layer load-bearing floor with slide-out table. This is smart stuff.
More importantly, Ford has launched the 2021 Bronco Sport in cooperation with the aftermarket, which contains up to 100 accessories. The car manufacturer itself will provide bundled accessory packages around four outdoor themes, including bicycle, snow, water Sports and camping.
As for the rest of the cabin, this is very typical, although the dashboard is uniquely different from the more fashionable Escape. Other intimate designs include a storage space under the rear seats and a Molle strapping system available on the backrest of the front seats to hold flashlights and luggage bags.
Is cross-country sports legal?
Given that it has the same origins as the firm street-conscious Escape, it is easy to be skeptical about the roughing of the Bronco Sport, but the spec sheet for this model provides ample reason for encouragement. In addition, there are many smart features that are aimed at buyers of active lifestyles that every automaker is looking at in the target market.
That’s right-just as the new large mustangs have set their sights on the Wrangler, this mustang movement is staring at the rest of the Jeep family. This sports car is 172.7 inches long and has a wheelbase of 105.7 inches, which is most similar to the compass, but it may cross shop with a larger compassEven small . Other models, such as popular May also participate in the conversation.
2021 Ford Mustang sports specifications
1.5-liter turbo I3
2.0-liter turbo I4
2,200 lbs (maximum)
AWD and turbocharger become standard on Sport
The first reason for optimism? Mandatory all-wheel drive. (It is true that Ford promotes Sport as a four-wheel drive, but the hardware is not so hard.) The second one? Powertrain strength. The basic turbocharged 1.5-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine gives this car the same level of competition but not much 181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque. But even more interesting is the high-end 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged engine, which provides 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. In Escape, the engine can achieve 0 to 60 mph in 6 seconds, and Bronco Sport has similar data, although it may be slower due to its weaker off-road tires. Aerodynamics may be heavier on the roadside.
Although all Sport models are specifically paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the larger engine is equipped with an auxiliary gearbox and rear-wheel-drive cooler, which can be used for heavier work, as well as a set of paddle switches. Speaking of rear-drive hardware, Ford offers a dual-clutch unit, which is derived from its assembly-ready Focus RS, which provides torque vectoring and full locking.

Bronco Sport has an optional GOAT (over all terrain) mode
The wheels, tires and suspension of the Bronco Sport series are equally auspicious. Yes, in addition to the occasional gravel road or the muddy parking lot of the music festival, there are some decorative areas that can be expected. However, key models like the “Badlands” series use large 28.5-inch all-terrain rubber, while the first limited edition film uses 29-inch off-road tires.
Bronco Sport also has a significant ground clearance-up to 8.8 inches-this figure makes me sure that its coincidence is only 0.1 inches, exceeding the current rough rough Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk in the department. The highest suspension stroke has a front row height of 7.4 inches and a rear row height of 8.1 inches. Ford said that the sport can wade in nearly 2 feet of water, which is another leading number.
Like the Bronco on the new frame, the sports version also uses Blue Oval’s latest terrain management system, which has up to seven different GOAT (driving on any terrain) modes that can adjust the transmission system And the software settings for steering for different surfaces and situations. These use cases include “normal”, “ecological”, “sports”, “sliding”, “sand”, “mud” and “rut” and “rock crawling” (the latter two are reserved for wasteland and the first edition of decoration). Trail Control can also be used, which is essentially low-speed off-road cruise control.
Overall, Bronco Sport seems to have more powerful features than a typical crossover SUV.
Ford Escape beats Bronco Sport on towing
One of the disappointments of Bronco Sport? Towing capacity. Its weight is limited to 2,000 to 2,200 pounds, depending on the decoration. This is a competition at the same level, but it is also a major move for Escape, which can be configured to tow 3,500 pounds.
The maximum payload is limited to a modest 1,000 pounds (estimated value).
Sport gets Sync 3 infotainment, not Sync 4
In 2021, Ford Bronco Sport is equipped with a Sync 3 infotainment system running on an 8-inch touch screen. System functional standardswith Integration, as well as 4G-LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Alexa voice control and SiriusXM satellite radio.
Unfortunately, Sport has not been updated with more powerful featuresFound immediately in a large wild. The latter adds many game-changing features, including updating wireless updates one by one and wireless smart phone mirroring, which are all useful things.
Co-Pilot 360 security technology comes standard with optional Assist Plus
In terms of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), Bronco Sport’s Co-Pilot 360 kit includes standard automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring with intersection alerts, lane keeping assist and automatic High beam. The optional Co-Pilot 360 Assist Plus suite adds comprehensive adaptive cruise control, with the lane centered and bundled with built-in navigation.
In other words, both standard equipment and safety equipment also have loads.
Do enough car buyers want Bronco Sport?
Thanks to Ford turning to quarterly sales reports and COVID-19, it is now too early to say that the strategy was successfully implemented, even just to escape, it is still too early, but after personally facing the Bronco Sport in 2021, I feel very optimistic. The sport seems to have attitude, skill and substance, not only can it get rid of fenders from Jeep and Subaru products, but it also seems to stand out from the crowd.
This is really good news, because for me, the charm of this sport can hardly be a foregone conclusion, especially considering Ford’s recent efforts on SUVs. The sixth generation of the companyExperienced a failure-prone launch, and the vehicle itself proved to be quite easy to forget. (Frankly speaking, there are few claims about no charm and wrong names better. )
2021 Bronco Sport is planned to be built in Hermosillo, Mexico, and will be available later this year.For the model, it is with the siblings on the frame. Although this “baby mustang” will undoubtedly live at its peak, under the shadow of a burly brother, this rugged and practical function seems to win its own attention.
