The 2021 Ford Bronco and the smaller Bronco Sport may have had their unveilings delayed by the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, but the Blue Oval is still moving forward with other aspects of the Bronco Sport, with a leaked copy of the company’s dealer guide making its way onto the internet.
Select elements of the guide were photographed by a member of the Bronco Sport Forum and they do reveal a number of interesting details about the upcoming utility. For starters, it appears that the baby Bronco will flip the script when it comes to trim level designation in a move to try and build a unique identity for itself. Other models in Ford’s lineup typically follow the same well worn trail of offering S, SE, SEL, and Titanium models for buyers to choose from. The Bronco Sport on the other hand appears to draw inspiration from various national parks for its trim level names. According to the guide, the Bronco Sport will have its buyers choose from five different trim levels (Base, Big Bend, Outer Banks, Badlands, and First Edition.) With the system currently having over 419 different parks in its inventory, look for Ford to have plenty of material to draw from when it comes to making future models of the Bronco Sport.
While we still have not had the chance to formally see the Bronco and the Bronco Sport to formally confirm what will be lurking under the hood, the Bronco Sport shares its platform with the current generation Escape. This means that either a 1.5 liter EcoBoost four cylinder engine, or a 2.0 liter EcoBoost engine with both engines being hooked up to a eight speed automatic transmission. The order guide also showcases ten different colors: Alto Blue, Area 51, Cactus Gray, Carbonized Gray, Cyber Orange Metallic, Iconic Silver, Kodiak Brown, Rapid Red Metallic, Oxford White, and Shadow Black. Two 17-inch wheel designs are also available, and the interior will arrive with its own fair share of custom touches.
Look for more information to emerge over the next few months, including the revised launch and delivery period for the Bronco and its smaller accomplice.
