The Ford Bronco and the Ford Bronco Sport: Which Should You Buy?

Kerry Ford in Cincinnati Has The Info You Need to Make Your Decision!

Despite having such similar names, there are a lot of differences between the two models. They're built with two different kinds of Hamilton customers in mind, so it's important to understand what each offers so that you can get the most out of your time at Kerry Ford.

The 2021 Ford Bronco

The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport


Size and Interior Space

With the 'Sport' moniker, it's no surprise that the Bronco Sport is designed to be a smaller version of the Ford Bronco. They're both about the same height, with the Bronco ranging from 71.9 inches to 73 inches, while the Bronco Sport can be anywhere from 70.2 inches to 74.4 inches tall.

However, the Bronco Sport is shorter than the Bronco, especially when comparing it to the four-door Bronco. The four-door Bronco is 189.4 inches long, and the Bronco Sport sits almost a full foot and a half shorter at 172.7 inches long.

The Bronco comes in two body styles: two-door and four-door. There are some small differences between them, primarily when it comes to its dimensions, but they also differ in their seating capacity. The two-door Bronco has room for four passengers, but the four-door Bronco has a little extra space, giving it a five-passenger capacity. The Bronco Sport is only available as a four-door SUV and has room for up to five passengers.


The two models differ quite a bit when it comes to the details of their performance, but both are worthy additions to the off-road market.

The Bronco Sport has a 1.5-liter EcoBoost® engine standard, generating 181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque. Upgrading to the 2.0-liter powertrain will produce up to 250 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque for those of you that really want to feel the power in your SUVs. Both of these powertrains come with four-wheel drive and dual exhaust.

The Bronco starts with a stronger 2.3-liter turbocharged engine that will generate 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Like the Bronco Sport, you can upgrade to an even more powerful engine with the 2.7-liter six-cylinder engine, which will generate 310 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. With all this power and the grip of 4x4 driving, you can expect to tow up to 3,500 pounds around West Chester when properly equipped.


The Bronco Sport has Ford's SYNC® 3 infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen, allowing you to use Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, and you can use the Enhanced Voice Recognition to control your favorite apps while you're driving through Springdale. When it's time to update the system, you don't even need to come into a service center. All you need is to have a Wi-Fi® connection.

The Ford Bronco comes with the advanced SYNC® 4 system with an eight-inch touchscreen standard, and you can upgrade that to a 12-inch touchscreen on the Bronco Outer Banks. SYNC® 4 allows you to use Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ wirelessly. You'll also get improved Natural Voice Control, Cloud-Based Navigation with Real-Time Traffic and Weather and you can receive updates to the system over-the-air.

Safety Features

The Ford Bronco Sport comes standard with Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and a Lane-Keeping System to help you safe on the road. You'll also have the Blind Spot Information System® with Cross-Traffic Alert, which can detect vehicles in your blind spot and warn you if you begin to merge or back into their path. The Bronco also has these safety features available on the Big Bend trim and up.
