There’s a new Ford Bronco for model year 2021 – and it’s not just a one-off model but a family of three Bronco members. The most affordable of these is the Bronco Sport, which reduces the Bronco recipe to a more affordable but road-ready vehicle. While the basic Bronco and the Bronco Sport have virtually identical prices ($ 28,500 and $ 28,155, respectively), the numbers vary greatly when you opt for the higher grades. We decided to maximize the Bronco Sport online configurator and see which model is the most expensive on sale.
We took the Bronco Sport Badlands 2021 as a starting point with its 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, eight-speed automatic transmission, advanced 4×4 system and a starting price of $ 32,660. Our vehicle runs on 17 inch wheels and has a Cyber Orange exterior finish, as well as some exterior enhancements, including front and rear fenders and roof rail cross bars.
Inside the cabin, we opted for seats upholstered in brown leather, an additional loading mat, front and rear carpet mats and a load management system. Thanks to the Badlands package, our car also has the high-end Bang & Olufsen audio system connected to Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system. This pack also adds off-road suspension, all-wheel drive with seven selectable modes, a 180-degree front camera with a separate view and washer, and more.
Last but not least, we also opted for the optional tow group ($ 395) and Ford’s Co-Pilot 360 Assist 2.0 ($ 795). There is also a Yakima bike rack for two bikes attached to the trunk lid. Overall, our fully specialized model has an MSRP of $ 39,864.
It should be mentioned that the Bronco Sport First Edition has a higher starting price than our Bronco Sport Badlands at $ 38,500, but the model is already sold out and will no longer be available for order.
