I’m not going to lie to you, I like the Bronco Sport. Bronco 2-Door and 4-Door get most of the attention around here and there are good reasons for that, mostly because they’re awesome. Here’s the thing though, Bronco Sport is good. I’m confident that, for long time members of the Bronco community, this little Bronco will surprise you and, in my opinion, it lives up to the name on its grille. When I went out to the Moab 4x4 Expo, I got an Escape as my rental for the trip. I drove it the whole week I was in Moab and drove it on a day long trip through three national parks that you can read about here. It’s fine enough as a road tripping car. I didn’t have any complaints. However, when I went out to Holly Oak ORV Park the following week and spent an afternoon in the Bronco Sport, the differences between the two, even though they’re on the same platform, were stark.
We just returned from the Bronco Sport media event and we are excited. We’re putting together our full drive impressions article and can’t wait to share it with you early next month. In the meantime, we had a chance to clarify some questions that we heard from the Nation with Jovina Young, the Bronco Sport Brand Manager and recent Rebelle Rally racer You read that right, this Brand Manager hopped in the vehicle that she’s responsible for and raced it over 2000 kilometers of harsh terrain. I think we can all respect that.
