2021 Ford Bronco Sport vs. Its Competition

2021 Ford Bronco Sport
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Ford’s latest foray into off-roading slaps a heritage name on a crossover that’s based on the Ford Escape.

In theory, it’ll work a lot like the Jeep Cherokee and Compass, which come in tricked-out overland editions that mask their humble front-drive roots.

What Ford’s really aiming at, though, is the Jeep Wrangler, the icon of military and off-roading history, though the Bronco Sport doesn’t have anything in the way of removable roof panels, locking Dana axles, or turbodiesel power.

While it aims at the lighter side of Jeep, Ford might also draw some fans away from its own Bronco, a ruggedly revived effort all its own, with all the hallmarks of the Wrangler baked in, from extreme off-road editions to convertible roof systems.
