It doesn’t matter which turn your day may take; the sophisticated yet tough compact SUV is there when you need it. The compact Ford Bronco Sport, beginning at $28,265, offers drivers standard four-wheel drive, giving them the flexibility they want to get through the day-to-day. [a] The standard 1.5L engine gives this fuel-efficient vehicle 25 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway, meaning the Bronco Sport is easy on your budget and that you will be spending less time at the pumps.
The four-door crossover SUV offers a spacious cabin with two rows of seating that can comfortably fit up to five passengers. The convenience and flexibility don’t end there either. You can choose from up to four model options ranging from the standard base model to the high-end Badlands. So you will have no trouble finding the perfect Bronco Sport that fits all your needs and then some.
The bold-looking SUV crossover was created to fit in where and when you need it to.

This SUV Can Handle the Road and the Trail
While the Ford Bronco Sport is slightly smaller than the full-size Ford Bronco, that doesn’t mean it can’t keep up. While the traditional Bronco is of a truck-based design, the Ford Bronco Sport is a more traditional crossover SUV. Don’t let its size fool you, though; when it comes to power, the Bronco Sport holds its own against its compact competition like the Jeep Cherokee and Honda CR-V.
The standard 1.5L Ecoboost turbo engine puts out 181 hp along with 190 lb-ft of torque. The responsive handling and maneuverability of the 2022 Bronco Sport make the SUV great at handling city roads and country lanes. To unlock the 2.0L turbo engine, drivers will have to opt for the higher-end Badlands edition of the Bronco Sport, which delivers an impressive 250 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque. While the more powerful engine slightly lowers the Bronco Sports’ the EPA to a respectable 21 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway, some customers might find the extra boost of power worth it, especially if you find yourself off-road more often than not.
Features to Help With Any Driving Situation
The standard 4×4 applies power evenly to all four tires, keeping the Bronco Sport moving over uneven or slippery terrain with increased traction control and minimal chance for tire slippage. The Bronco Sport lets drivers adjust their Bronco’s driving mode to the environment with the Goes Over Any Type of Terrain (or G.O.A.T.) modes. Drivers can choose from sand, slippery, sport, eco, or normal modes depending on the given situation. If you choose to level up to the Badlands trim, you get two additional modes: mud/ruts and rock crawl.
If you really want to get serious about off-roading, then going with the Badlands edition is the best choice they can make. When combined with all-terrain off-road tires, the Badlands model gives drivers a generous 8.8 inches of ground clearance, an increase from the standard 7.8 inches on the base model. The twin-clutch rear-drive units disperse torque to a single-rear-wheel, giving the Badlands the ability to tackle loose and rocky terrain. The Badlands also offers drivers up to 23.6 inches of water-fording capabilities, showing that the Badlands trim level is created to handle whatever mother nature throws at it. Those who find themselves out after dark or up before the sunrises will appreciate the rear flood lights, which will make loading and unloading in the dark quicker and easier than ever.
Flexible Options to Fit Your Off-Road Gear and Friends
The 2022 Bronco Sport gives drivers room to bring along all their friends while offering creative and flexible solutions when it comes to cargo and storage. The cabin has plenty of space for drivers and passengers to stretch out to relax. This includes the second-row seating, and the safari-style roof means increased headroom for passengers and a taller space for larger cargo. To open up the space even more, drivers can opt for the available moonroof to let in the light and fresh air.
If drivers find they need more than the 32.5 cu.ft. of cargo room, the 60/40 split rear seating means there’s room for all your equipment, from bikes to sports equipment. Or fold all seats flat for a max cargo space of 65.2 cu.ft. The standard exterior steel roof rack can hold up to 150 lbs, so drivers will have no problem taking along all they’ll need and more.
Interior tie-down carabiner hooks and loops can help stop your cargo from sliding and keep it in place over uneven terrain or around sharp corners. The 360-degree interior lift gate handle makes closing your tailgate a cinch plus adds a convenient location for hanging gear. The Sport Bronco also offers additional creative options for storage like under-seat bins for storing smaller essentials like flashlights or available rear-seat zipper pockets for electronics or chargers. The MOLLE strap system is great for organizing water bottles, sunglasses, and more.
For a little added convenience and fun, a bottle opener has been built-in into the hatch. To prepare your equipment and make getting outdoors easier than ever with the available fold-out camp table. The table serves as the perfect surface for organizing your cargo or taking a break with friends before heading out.
Tech to Make the Journey Better
The Bronco Sport is equipped with the latest and greatest tech to make your day easier than ever. Say goodbye to tangled cords when you opt for the wireless charging pad that’s conveniently placed on the front console. Just lay down your compatible smartphone and let the Bronco Sport wireless charging pad do the rest. But whether you have a phone to charge or a passenger needs to connect their tablet, the Bronco Sport comes with several smart-charging USB ports. The ports are planted in the center panel, meaning everyone who needs access to one can reach it. Included are a USB-A, USB-C, and a 12V. Increase your power to 150W to 400W when you opt for the Outer Banks or Badlands models.
The standard 8-inch touchscreen comes with a voice-activated SYNC 3 system and an available navigation system. With voice command, you can concentrate on the road ahead while the available navigation system guides the way. The Breadcrumb Navigation system drops digital pinpoints, or breadcrumbs, making it easy for drivers to get out and explore without worrying about finding their way home again.
The available 180-degree camera gives drivers a second set of eyes and an extra boost of confidence when navigating rough or unknown areas. By projecting the image of the terrain ahead of them, drivers can know what to expect and prepare ahead of time.
Some of the Best Safety Features Around
Drivers know when they get behind the wheel of a Ford, they’re getting the best safety features available. Having the Ford Co-Pilot 360 Assist by their side gives drivers confidence when unknown conditions arise. BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert helps take the unknown out of driving. BLIS means drivers never have to second guess themselves when wondering if it’s safe to change lanes. With BLIS, drivers are alerted to cars riding in their blind spots. Cross-Traffic Alert is handy if you’re backing out of a tight space like a busy parking lot or narrow driveway. The system detects approaching rear traffic, signaling if it’s safe to pull out or to wait a minute for a passing car.
The Lane-Keeping System is another feature drivers can depend on to help them out when they need it. The Lane-Keeping System combines Lane-Keeping Assist with Lane-Keeping Alert. The system can alert drivers if they are drifting from their lane. If this happens several times, the Lane-Keeping alert will signal fatigued drivers with a friendly coffee cup icon to let them know maybe it’s time to pull over for a rest.
Pre-Collision Assist feature with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) means drivers have their co-polite looking for them by scanning the road ahead to detect pedestrians in their path and quickly alerting them. If the driver can’t react quick enough, the AEB quickly applies the brake to help prevent a potential collision.
If night driving stresses you out, the Auto High-Beam Headlamp system senses unlit or dim lighting conditions. The beams come on to light the way, but if they sense approaching traffic, they will automatically dim, so you don’t have to worry about constantly switching between high and low beams. This helps keep drivers focused on driving while also making it easier for approaching drivers to see. Less worry and more fun, that’s what the Bronco Sport is all about.
