Not sure if you should go with the Ford Bronco or Ford Bronco Sport? Let’s see how these vehicles compare in three key areas.


The Ford Bronco is a powerful SUV no matter which engine you go with. The base is a turbocharged 2.3-liter powerplant that pumps out 300 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. There are two twin-turbo options: a 2.7-liter V6 with 330 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque and a 3.0-liter V6 with 400 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque.

A seven-speed manual transmission is standard, but a 10-speed automatic is available. Four-wheel drive is the only drivetrain.

The Ford Bronco Sport comes with a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder that puts out 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. The other option is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that offers 250 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel drive is standard.

Off-Road Ability

Very few SUVs can compete with the Ford Bronco when it comes to off-roading. In addition to four-wheel drive, you will get an on-demand sway bar, multiple skid plates, and low-speed cruise control. And if you go with the Sasquatch package, locking front and rear differentials, slip-resistant beadlock wheels, and 35-inch mud terrain tires come standard.

The Ford Bronco Sport is also a good off-roader, especially if you go with the Badlands trim. This comes with skid plates, tow hooks, and trail control.


When it comes to tech, the Ford Bronco and Ford Bronco Sport come with many advanced features. They each have:

  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™
  • A Wi-Fi hot spot
  • An 8-inch touchscreen
  • Bluetooth®
  • USB ports
  • A 6-speaker stereo
