The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport Badlands
The new Ford Bronco Sport brings off road style and presence to the crossover SUV category. Although it’s not the full Bronco, James has enthusiastically labelled this the Baby Bronco – and today as Baby Bronco Day. But does it have the off road chops to match the name? Thomas and James investigate the Bronco Sport’s ability to handle wheel slip while its diff lock function is engaged. They also conduct an extremely scientific test that involves Thomas with a full lunch and the Bronco’s modest towing capacity. We hope you enjoy the episode!
Does it Live Up to the Bronco Name?
It’s hard to deny that the Ford Bronco Sport has a rugged style that projects an off roader image. On the inside, Thomas even remarks that the materials look easy to wipe down and feel durable. Both of which are desirable qualities in a vehicle that might see some muddy passengers. However there are absolutely some compromises made, which can be found in the plastic-y steering wheel and lacklustre sound system. But more importantly than all of that – how does it drive?
Thomas and James examine both the Bronco Sport’s ability to act as a commuter and how it handles tougher terrain. Does the AWD system and technology live up to what you might expect from a Baby Bronco? Thomas is happy that more power is shunted to the rear wheels during a snowy slide than say a Toyota Rav-4. But is it as nice to drive everyday as its competition? Watch and find out!
