How the Ford Bronco Sport Is in a League of its Own

It’s good to be the last man standing—or, in this case, the last vehicle standing. With the Jeep Renegade discontinued, the Ford Bronco Sport is officially the go-to option of its kind. It’s a good option to have, especially if you’re looking for a fun and functional vehicle that not only gets you from point A to point B but also lets you go everywhere in between. The Ford Bronco Sport is the younger sibling to the iconic Bronco, which first debuted in 1966. The Sport version gives you the best parts of the bigger Bronco but in a size that works well for a large variety of drivers.

Your local Ford Bronco Sport dealer can walk you through the various trims available and answer any questions you have about this rugged SUV, as well as the accessories available to help take your adventures to the next level. Continue reading to learn more about the 2024 Ford Bronco Sport, as well as look at possible competitors in its class and see how they compare.

Ford Bronco Sport Versus Its Competition

With the announced discontinuation of the Jeep Renegade, it seems to leave the Bronco Sport in a league of its own. The truth is, there are other options in its class, but nothing quite like the Bronco Sport itself. Still, it’s a good idea to know what else is available when making your decision. With that being said, the main competition for the Bronco Sport is the Jeep Compass, the Subaru Crosstrek, and the Kia Seltos. Of those three, only the Jeep Compass offers anything close to the longevity of the Ford brand and its history of building tough and rugged offroad vehicles that also offer a smooth ride on pavement.

However, one look at the Compass and the Ford Bronco Sport side by side, and you’ll quickly see that the Bronco Sport is taller and wider. In fact, the Bronco Sport is almost six inches taller than the Compass. It also offers more cargo room, which is essential when you have everyone’s hiking gear packed in the back. The Bronco Sport also gives you a larger gas tank and better fuel efficiency so that you can go further. Not to mention an available navigation system that the Compass doesn’t offer. It is worth noting that, of the three competitors, the Compass comes closest to the Bronco Sport’s design, but with the available two-toned roof and other details, it’s hard to beat the look of the Bronco Sport.

When comparing the 2024 Ford Bronco Sport to the Kia Seltos, which offers the next closest design style, you’ll notice again that the Bronco Sport is taller and wider. For fuel efficiency, the two are almost neck and neck, but like the Compass, the Bronco Sport’s fuel tank is larger. The Bronco Sport takes the lead again in cargo capacity, with 65.2 cu.ft. available overall compared to the Kia’s 62.8 cu.ft.. The Ford Bronco Sport also offers a wider turning diameter and a wide array of standard safety options, like cross-traffic alert.

The third contender, the 2024 Subaru Crosstrek, has the same spirit of adventure as the Ford Bronco Sport, but there is no comparison when it comes to roominess. The Ford Bronco Sport beats the Crosstrek in every category, including being almost ten inches taller than the Crosstrek. The Bronco Sport also gives you an available convertible hardtop or softtop and an available dual moonroof. While they both offer comparable towing capabilities, the Bronco Sport’s available hands-free liftgate and generous cargo space put it over the top for ease and functionality.

Breaking Down the 2024 Ford Bronco Sport

Now that you know how the 2024 Ford Bronco Sport stacks up against the competition, let’s look at the various trim levels you can choose from. Each Bronco Sport gives you room for five passengers, fun accessories, and enough towing capacity for whatever outdoor adventure you embark on. And with the available Voice-Activated Touchscreen Navigation System and Front 180-Degree Camera with Split View, those adventures can take you anywhere, which leads us to the Bronco Sport’s off-roading capabilities.


In today’s fast-paced world, the need for better work-life balance is stronger than ever. The 2024 Ford Bronco Sport answers the call with 8.8 inches of ground clearance and drive modes that adjust to your terrain with ease. The “go over any terrain,” or G.O.A.T. modes, include Sand, Slippery, Sport, Eco, and Normal. In addition, if you choose the Badlands trim, you’ll gain access to Mud/Ruts and Rock Crawl modes. Additionally, the Ford Bronco Sport has an available 23.6 inches of water-fording capability that, when added to the optional all-terrain off-road tires, gives you added confidence to drive through shallow streams and deep puddles.

Trim Options

The 2024 Ford Bronco Sport is available in five trims, starting with Big Bend. Big Bend offers a standard manual liftgate, flip-up rear glass, safari-style roof, two adjustable floodlights, and a carbonized gray grille with white Bronco lettering. Inside, you’ll enjoy standard Electronic Automatic Temperature Control with Rear Air Duct, Intelligent Access with Push-Button Start, a Terrain Management System with all five G.O.A.T. modes, various power points for charging digital devices, and much more.

You can also boost this base-level Bronco Sport to meet your needs by adding optional packages like the Black Diamond Off-Road package, which gives your Bronco Sport things like unique hood and side decals, underbody protection, and 17-inch Carbonized Grey-Painted Low Gloss aluminum wheels. You can also choose to add a Convenience Package that gives you added comfort for the drive with an eight-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, LED fog lamps, rear parking sensors, a wireless charging pad, and more.

On the other end of the line, you’ll find the top-tiered Badlands trim. This trim gives you a 2.0L EcoBoost Engine that offers 250 hp, an advanced 4×4 with a twin-clutch rear drive unit that boosts your traction control, and the two additional drive modes that were mentioned above. You also have the option of adding the Badlands Premium Package, which contains features like leather-trimmed seats, a B&O sound system by Bang & Olufsen, a memory driver’s seat, a remote start system, and a heated steering wheel, just to name a few. Additional trim options include the Heritage, Outer Banks, and Sport Free Wheeling trims, which combine retro styling with modern amenities for a unique look that can’t be found on anything in its class.
