What Is the Bronco Sport?

Recently, Ford brought the iconic Bronco right out of retirement, much to the excitement of Bronco fans. While this was great news for Ford fans, the best part was that the Bronco Sport was also created. The Bronco Sport is classified as a small crossover and is a mini-version of the traditional Bronco.

Created for exploration off the beaten path, this petite ride offers drivers high-quality features, off-roading capabilities, and a bit of old-fashion fun. If you are prone to experiencing nostalgia, then this is the vehicle for you. Its unibody design and compact size make it perfect for people who live in the city and enjoy heading out into the wild on the weekends. Since it is a smaller version of the regular Bronco, you will notice that it boasts smoother edges and is overall less blocky.

Even with the slight style adjustments, the Bronco Sport is recognizable as a Bronco everywhere you go. You will have people coming up to ask you where you got it, making this model a great conversation starter. Since its initial debut at the Detroit Auto Show in 2017, everyone has been excited for what the future holds in store for this robust ride.

The Bronco Sport competes directly against models like the Jeep Renegade. With its boxy design and plethora of off-roading features, the Bronco Sport puts up a solid fight. So, if you have been dreaming about owning an adventure vehicle, then you definitely want to take the new Ford Bronco Sport out for a spin.

2021 Bronco Sport

Looking at the new 2021 Ford Bronco Sport, you will notice that each of the five trim levels are unique in their offerings. You can find the exact model that is best suited for you. Let’s go over a quick breakdown so that you will get a better idea of what to expect when you arrive at our lot.

First is the Base model, and it is powered by a turbocharged 1.5-liter 3-cylinder motor that can yield 181 hp and 190 lb-ft of torque. It’s also equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission and 4WD for true off-roading capabilities. The Base rides on 17-inch wheels and has integrated roof rails for extra storage. It even has LED headlights for enhanced visibility. Meanwhile, the rear liftgate has a flip-up window for quick access to the back. Inside, you will find an advanced infotainment system displayed on an 8-inch touchscreen. Smartphone integration is possible thanks to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the 6-speaker stereo delivers high-quality sound.

One thing you should also take note of is safety. Every 2021 Ford Bronco Sport comes with numerous advanced safety systems. These include BLIS (a blind spot information system) with cross-traffic alert, a lane-keeping system, and pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking. This package is known as the Ford Co-Pilot360.

The next trim level is called the Big Bend. The added features here are more related to comfort and convenience than anything else. Fog lamps have been added to the exterior along with heated side mirrors. The rear windows have also all been tinted, and keyless ignition/entry has been installed. On the interior, you will find rubber flooring and cloth upholstery that is resistant to stains. Finally, map pockets have been added to the backs of the front seats.

Moving up to the Outer Banks trim is the next step. This model is best suited to people who enjoy nature adventures less frequently. Considered to be more of a luxury trim, you will find leather upholstery and heated/power-adjustable front seats inside this model. The steering wheel is also heated and wrapped in leather. Plus, ambient cabin lighting has been installed along with a household-style power outlet. There are a few more safety features on this model as well including rain-sensing wipers and rear parking sensors.

If you want something more geared for off-roading, then the Badlands trim is the right version for you. It comes equipped with a bigger turbocharged 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers 250 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque. The updated 4WD system also gets a rear differential for better traction over rough terrain. Underbody skid plates have been added as well as a revised suspension that is more suitable for rocks. Tow hooks have been placed in the front, and all-terrain tires have been added. As for safety, this vehicle gets a 180-degree front-facing camera that will help you see the obstacle ahead of you.

The top-tier trim for the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is called the First Edition. This model is fully loaded with large all-terrain tires, roof rack cross bars, and a Class II hitch receiver for a maximum towing capacity of 2,200 lbs. It even has trailer sway control to keep your attachment steady on long rides. A Bang & Olufsen 10-speaker stereo has also been installed along with a wireless charging pad. You may also add adaptive cruise control into the mix for extra safety during rush hour traffic.

DePaula Ford Is Your Ford Bronco Sport Dealer

Dealerships are far more than a place to conduct business. Each one consists of hardworking teams that overcome obstacles simply in the name of guaranteeing you excellent service. As trivial as it sounds, dealerships have always counted on you and every other customer that walks through the doors to stay afloat in this ever-changing industry. Nowadays, competition is red hot, and there’s a chance that the phrase “your local dealership” corresponds to more than simply one place of business. That's why we here at DePaula Ford are ensuring that we provide you with the best customer experience possible.

Servicing Your Bronco Sport

At DePaula Ford, in addition to finding a large lot of fan-favorite vehicles like the Bronco Sport, you’ll also find our on-site service center. Automotive servicing and repair jobs are a tricky process, and you shouldn’t trust just anyone with bringing your vehicle back to its intended working order. You won’t have to worry about this here as our technicians are certified and know everything there is to know about working on your Ford Bronco Sport and many other models. Not only can you trust our mechanics to fix any problem that you may have with your Bronco Sport, but you can rest assured that the job will be done efficiently and effectively.

Even if you may not realize it yet, it’s important to pick a dealership that has an on-site service center such as ours. This is because the most effective way to keep your vehicle in the best possible shape it can be is to bring it in for routine checkups. Good driver etiquette extends to the vehicle in which they’re operating, and it’s always recommended to never go extended periods of time without a mechanic visit. There’s no vehicle that this ideology doesn’t apply to, and that includes the Bronco Sport, as there are a few key details that you may not know.

To get the most out of your Bronco Sport, Ford has released some guidelines of recommended times to bring your vehicle in for servicing. This is dependent on what you’re using the Bronco Sport for, with the two main differences being those who use their vehicle for normal traversal and those who use theirs for towing or off-roading. Like most vehicles out there, the Bronco Sport will give you an indication of when it requires a servicing job. For example, under normal driving conditions, you should expect to see the ‘Change Oil’ message once you’ve traveled between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. If you’re towing large amounts of cargo, you’ll get this message between 3,000 and 5,000 miles. Ford urges customers not to allow the odometer to exceed 10,000 miles without an oil change.

Many of the servicing jobs do require you to bring your vehicle in, such as a spark plug replacement that you should get every 60,000 miles if you utilize your vehicle for towing. However, there are different inspections of sorts that Ford wants drivers to perform at home to ensure everything is in working order. Every month, Ford recommends that you check the oil levels of your engines, washer fluid levels for your windshield, and inspect your tire’s health, among other things.

Every six months, there are other aspects of the Bronco Sport that you should check. These inspections that you should perform include seat belt strength, ensure your lights are still working, apply your parking brake, among other tests. While Ford knows that many drivers are unlikely to do this, it’s something that we can check for you at our on-site service center if you would prefer. With our service center, we can also help you track down vehicle parts that you may need, and we can even help you install them into your Bronco Sport.

Financing Options

Fortunately, when purchasing a vehicle nowadays, you’re given more choices than ever before in how you pay for it. If a brand-new Bronco Sport isn’t what you have in mind, all you need to know is that we’ve got you covered. If you do want a new Bronco Sport, however, but you still aren’t looking to pay for it outright, you can come to our on-site finance center to speak and speak with one of our representatives. Once you’re here, we’ll ask you a few simple questions, and then we can find you an ideal lease or loan that you feel comfortable with and is well within your budget.

At our on-site finance center, we can also give you a trade value for your current vehicle, so if you’re looking for an extra boost in paying off your Bronco Sport, we can set that up for you here. Best of all, selling us your vehicle with us doesn’t mean you’re locked into shopping with us either, as you can take the money you get as a trade-in or just as cash. Trading in your vehicle is a great way to accomplish two major tasks in one process, as you can offload your previous ride and swap it for a fancy Bronco Sport. Our rates are some of the best around, and we won’t underpay you for the value of your vehicle, and this is made better by the competitive pricing we have on the Bronco Sport itself.

If you are looking to save a little bit of money on your Bronco Sport purchase, look for a model that is Certified Pre-Owned. Purchasing a CPO vehicle such as a Bronco Sport is a fantastic idea as it will have received a detailed inspection, comes with Roadside Assistance that’s available 24/7, but what’s perhaps most enticing is the inclusion of Ford CPO warranties. These warranties cover everything from a powertrain limited warranty to a comprehensive limited warranty. Gold Certified models specifically receive a 12-month / 12,000-mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty and a 7-year / 100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty for peace of mind.
