Spec Comparison: 2021 Ford Bronco Sport vs. Jeep, Subaru, and Others

We looked at how truncated, elongated and hardened Ford Escape compares to Jeep’s Renegade, Compass and Cherokee; Now let’s measure the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport against the larger compact SUV competitive package. Keep in mind that the Escape is primarily aimed at attracting a large market, so its offerings cover a wider range of prices, performance and capabilities. Bronco Sport is more focused on adventure travel, but it is not the only one on this list to have such a goal. So how does it overlap?

2021 Ford Bronco Sport Inner People Space against competition

Big buyers will appreciate the first-class front and rear headroom offered by the all-new boxed roofline of Ford Bronco Sport 2021. The front legroom is also among the leaders in the class, while that the rear legroom and the front and rear hip and shoulder room are closer to average. But when the numbers are multiplied, overall, the Bronco Sport offers 58.0 cubic feet of space for the front passengers, ranking second behind the Subaru Forester (60.1), and its rear space nails the class average at 49.5 cubes. It’s pretty impressive, given the shortest overall length in its class. (The big ones who park a lot in parallel, be careful!)

2021 Ford Bronco Sport Inner Cargo Space against competition

Much of what the shorter Bronco Sport rear overhang carries, this safari-step roof makes in terms of raw numbers.

But the cargo space is which cargo space Isand Ford has ensured that frequently transported adventure gear fits easily. For example, with the rear seat folded down, two mountain bikes fit easily inside without the front wheels (the accessories team will even sell you a bar that mounts to the ground to secure the forks of the bikes).

2021 Ford Bronco Sport Outer Space vs competition

As we’ve already noted, the Bronco Sport is the product of this reach in terms of length, stretching 7.1 inches less than the class average. But it is also the widest and tallest in the category, with a width of 74.3 inches and a height of 67.9 to 69.1 inches, depending on the finish variant. These extremes bring Bronco Sport to the middle of the class in terms of overall space efficiency (people inside and cargo space divided by the volume of the outer box).

2021 Ford Bronco Sport Power and weight compared to the competition

Although it borrows the transmissions of the Escape, route the exhaust to avoid any danger in off-road and slightly adjust the power and the engine torque according to the different missions of Bronco Sport modify the specifications of the engine of the Escape. That, plus the additional equipment to keep it moving safely in difficult conditions, means that the Bronco Sport ranks a little lower on the weight-power list than the Escape. But in its 2.0-liter turbo form, it ranks fifth in its class behind the Cherokee 2.0T in terms of weight / power ratio (although the weight / torque ratio reverses this order, placing Bronco Sport fourth). At the other end of the spectrum, the tiny 1.5-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost engine ranks fourth at the bottom of the two lists, so don’t run for roses in the Bronco Sport base.

Ford Bronco Sport 2021’s towing capacity compared to the competition

Many adventurous activities require toys that must move behind your adventure mobile, and Bronco Sport is for adventurers. And while the 1.5-liter Bronco Sport can tow as many trailers as its brother Escape, the 2.0-liter is limited to 2,200 pounds, 1,300 less than the Escape can handle. Maybe it’s the dual-clutch rear axle or the shortest final drive, but you’ll have to go a little smaller on the trailer or boat (maybe 16 feet tall for both). The two numbers are always competitive. and allow you to tow a small retractable camper, a pair of jet skis or snowmobiles, a quad-runner or another object of the same size.

Fuel economy of the Ford Bronco Sport 2021 compared to the competition

Here’s another area where Ford hasn’t finished testing and announced the results yet, but our guest holders assume the Bronco Sport lands in weight classes similar to the AWD Escape models, but with a less aerodynamic body (potentially higher drag coefficient and frontal area) and with the 2.0-liter variant obtaining a shorter axle ratio than in the Escape. We assume it will cost the baby Bronco 1 mpg highway compared to the Escape with both engines. We then assume that the more sophisticated water-cooled all-wheel drive system of the Badlands model and a shorter axle ratio (3.81: 1 versus 3.47: 1) may cost another 1 mpg of highway and 2 city ​​economy mpg. Call it 26/30/28 mpg city / highway / combined for the 1.5 liter; 21/29/24 for the 2.0 liters. This places the base 1.5-liter Bronco Sport in the upper half of the class, with a 2.0-liter classification below average.
