The 2023 Ford Bronco Sport aims to “tap into a demand for a rough and tough-looking SUV, but one that’s also usable for daily errands and routine driving chores,” says a review by Kelley Blue Book. 

A 1.5-liter, 3-cylinder engine powers the Bronco Sport, producing 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. A 250-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder is optional. Both options come with an 8-speed automatic and standard all-wheel drive.

Ford has been “generous” with active safety features, notes a review by Motortrend. This includes the Ford CoPilot 360 Suite as standard, with adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist and automatic high beams. It’s possible Ford could add its Blue Cruise hands-free driving system for 2023, notes the review, requiring new cameras and sensors.

With ample legroom and cargo space, the Bronco Sport provides a comfortable ride. And tech fans will enjoy the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with a six-speaker audio system. In addition, the Outer Banks and Badlands trim offer 10-speaker B&O audio.

Overall, Motor Trend highlights impressive off-road performance, quiet and comfortable on-road action, and a stylish, usable interior as the perks of the 2023 Ford Bronco Sport. Will Ford offer a hybrid model of this SUV? While it hasn’t been announced, reviewers speculate that it’s possible.
