You may be familiar with the Ford Bronco, one of Ford’s popular SUVs. In 2021, the automaker continued to impress consumers with the release of the Ford Bronco Sport. While it’s still relatively new, the Bronco Sport has become a highly sought-after vehicle for its fantastic off-road performance and rugged looks. Here, you can browse our Bronco Sport inventory or scroll on to read as we discuss the essentials of the Ford Bronco Sport, including its trim levels, engine, fuel economy, interior amenities, and safety features.
The 2021 and 2022 Ford Bronco Sport vehicles are available in the same four trim levels:
The standard Bronco Sport (Base) trim is the most economical vehicle in this class. It still offers amazing performance and convenient features, but you can opt for one of the higher trim levels for a more premium experience.
The Base trim level of the Ford Bronco Sport comes with a turbocharged three-cylinder engine that provides 190 pound-feet of torque and 181 horsepower. The Big Bend and Outer Banks trim levels also come standard with this three-cylinder engine. If you’re looking for something more powerful, you can opt for the turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the Badlands trim level. This engine provides 245 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque, making it a great machine to fuel your toughest adventures.
The Ford Bronco Sport is quite impressive in terms of fuel economy. The 2022 model with a three-cylinder engine achieves 25 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. With the four-cylinder engine, the fuel economy is 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The 2021 model achieves similar figures in terms of fuel economy.
Once you purchase a Ford Bronco Sport for you and your family, you’ll want to preserve its engine’s condition, which can improve your fuel efficiency and prevent the need for premature repairs. You can best care for your vehicle by investing in regular maintenance, such as oil changes, with Brewster Ford. Contact us today to get on a service schedule that works for your vehicle.
An eight-speed automatic transmission is the only transmission available on all Ford Bronco Sport trim levels. It offers seamless shifting for a smooth driving experience and operates with a rotary gear shifter between the two front seats. The Ford Bronco Sport comes standard with all-wheel drive, even on its Base trim level. The Ford Bronco Sport was clearly built for trails, and this is evident in Ford’s decision to forgo offering a two-wheel-drive version. With each trim level, you get the option of five drive modes: Normal, Slippery, Sand/Snow, Sport, and Eco.
The Base, Big Bend, and Outer Banks trim levels are ideal for any light off-roading you plan on doing. If you want to navigate particularly tricky trails, you may prefer the Bronco Sport Badlands. This vehicle offers enhanced performance thanks to its refined all-wheel-drive system that comes with off-road suspension and a Torque-Vectoring Dual-Clutch rear end.
The Ford Bronco Sport’s interior has a minimalist feel and offers convenient features for your comfort. For instance, it comes with manually adjustable front seats, single-zone manual climate control, cloth upholstery, front floor mats, and a standard steering wheel. You can also enjoy second-row seats that fold in a 60/40 fashion, which is helpful for organizing your cargo however you wish. In addition, you may use the included tie-down straps with carabiner hooks and loops to keep your items from flying across the SUV’s floor.
With higher trim levels, you can get features such as rear vents, a fold-down center armrest in the back seat, vanity mirrors on sun visors, a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, and automatic dual-zone climate control, and leather-trimmed sport seats.

Each Ford Bronco Sport comes with Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system that features an 8-inch touchscreen. You can connect your Android or Apple smartphone and use it to pull up directions, send messages, make phone calls, or change the music that’s playing. The system has integrated voice controls that can comprehend spoken language so that you can easily issue voice commands.
Also standard with each trim level is a six-speaker audio system and a 4.2-inch instrument panel. The Outer Banks and Badlands models come with a 6.5-inch instrument panel, making it easier to view your speed and other statistics while driving.
The Ford Bronco Sport has various safety features to protect you and other drivers on the road. Standard features in all trim levels include the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with rear Cross-Traffic Alert and forward collision mitigation. If you want even better peace of mind, you can get the Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ safety package with the Big Bend, Outer Banks, or Badlands trim levels. This package comes with advanced features, such as speed sign recognition, evasive steering assist, lane centering, and stop-and-go adaptive cruise control.
Whether you pick a 2021 or 2022 version of the Ford Bronco Sport is a personal choice. It all comes down to how much you want to pay and whether you want a brand-new vehicle or don’t mind a preowned one. Once you determine what model year you want, you may also consider what trim level you want. The Base trim offers more than enough capabilities for most off-road adventures. The Big Bend and Outer Banks trim levels to provide better aesthetics and fancier features, while the Badlands trim level helps you best navigate the toughest terrains.
