Performance and Fuel Economy

The Ford Bronco Sport delivers a satisfying performance with its two available powertrains: a standard 1.5-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine and an optional 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. The standard engine generates 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque, while the optional engine churns out 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired with an intelligent all-wheel-drive system and an eight-speed automatic transmission. When it comes to fuel economy, the 1.5-liter engine delivers 26 mpg combined (city/highway) while the more powerful 2.0-liter engine delivers 23 mpg combined.

The 2024 Bronco Sport not only comes with a powerful engine but also a versatile terrain management system that offers seven “GOAT” (Goes Over Any Type of Terrain) modes, optimizing the vehicle’s performance for different road conditions. These modes include Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery, Sand, Mud/Ruts, and Rock Crawl. If a driver is on a wet road and encounters a sharp turn, they can choose the Slippery mode. This allows the vehicle to automatically adjust its engine power, gear, steering, and braking to suit the slippery surface, helping drivers to avoid skidding or losing control of their vehicle.

Additionally, the display allows for making hands-free calls, playing music, getting directions, and controlling the vehicle’s functions with either the touch of a finger or a simple voice command. Other features of the SYNC 3 system include a 6.5-inch digital instrument cluster, a wireless charging pad, and a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.


When it comes to comfort and safety, the 2024 Ford Bronco won’t disappoint. The vehicle has an airy and spacious cabin with approximately 41 inches of front headroom and 42 inches of front legroom.

Safety Features

Ford’s Co-Pilot360 technology protects families from any potential hazards with a suite of advanced driver-assist technologies that keep drivers in control. Regardless of whether driving on the highway or a driveway, Co-Pilot360 technology provides drivers with confidence. Here are the driver-assist technologies included in this safety suite:

  • Rearview camera: This feature shows a clear view of what’s behind the vehicle on the touch-screen display while backing up or parking.
  • Auto high-beam headlamps: This feature can help drivers see better at night, as it automatically switches between low and high beams, depending on the lighting conditions and traffic.
  • Blind-spot information system with cross-traffic alert: These features work together to warn drivers of vehicles or pedestrians in their blind spots or approaching from behind, allowing them to change lanes or back out of a parking lot safely.
  • Pre-collision assist system with automatic emergency braking: When the system detects a potential hazard, it automatically applies the vehicle’s brakes to avoid or reduce the impact of a frontal collision.

The Bronco Sport also comes with a sturdy body structure. With high-strength aluminum and steel components, the vehicle’s body can absorb and distribute the impact force and protect drivers and their passengers from injury in the event of a collision. The body structure also has a safety cage that surrounds the vehicle’s cabin and provides additional rigidity and stability.
