Making its debut alongside its truck-based bigger brother the Bronco, the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is here to capture buyers who like the Bronco look and feel, but want something a little smaller and easier to manage around town. With that comes a price that slots in below the big model at $28,155 ($26,660 MSRP and $1,495 destination fee). That is quite close to the $29,995 two-door Bronco, though a significant discount compared to the four-door Bronco that starts at $34,695.
The Bronco Sport is in kind of an odd space as far as price and size are concerned. It’s a bit smaller than the Ford Escape, but its base price puts it above many subcompact crossovers. One of its closest competitors based on price and off-road orientation would likely be the Jeep Cherokee. It starts at $27,335, but at that price you only get front-wheel drive while the Bronco Sport has all-wheel drive as standard. Power for those base models is similar, with the Cherokee just a bit behind with 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque to the Ford’s 181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet. (Check back for a specs comparison of the Bronco Sport, Cherokee and Compass.)
