The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is not simply a “Baby Bronco”. It’s much more than that, in fact, and it’s much better than we expected it to be. We spent a few hours driving a 2021 Ford Bronco Sport Badlands in Hungry Valley. This is a great spot for off-road driving in California, and the Bronco Sport gobbled it all up with ease.
Inside, we were comfortable and outside the Bronco Sport wasn’t even breaking a sweat. The Badlands get a 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbo four-cylinder engine that makes 250 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. There’s a smaller engine available but you’re going to want to just jump right to the Badlands, as it gets upgraded suspension and off-road capability over the lower trims. You’ll spend at least $32,660 to do so, but we’re here to tell you it’s the one to get.
The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is a great addition to the Bronco family. And it shows that the full-size Bronco should be amazing in the dirt.
