Body Style and Dimension Comparison

The Ford Bronco is a much larger vehicle, obvious at first glance. It's closer to a truck than the smaller Ford Bronco Sport, which shares its body frame with sedans or crossover SUVs. The significant size difference means you will have more cargo space in the Ford Bronco which offers 38.3 cubic feet of storage compared to 32.5 cubic feet available in the Ford Bronco Sport. Opting for the two-door version of the Bronco will decrease the storage capacity to 22.4, significantly less than the Sport, so it's not a straightforward comparison. The Bronco Sport also offers more interior cubby-like storage throughout the cabin, efficiently using the available space. The added functionality can be very valuable to drivers even over the more generous space in the Ford Bronco.

Powertrain and Performance Comparison

The Ford Bronco was designed for the off-road enthusiast. The towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds and beefier off-road capabilities give the larger Bronco an edge over the Bronco Sport, which has a max towing capacity of 2,200 pounds. If you are looking for something more efficient with sedan-like drivability, then the tamer Bronco Sport is the vehicle for you.

Standard across the entire lineup, 4x4 capability will help you battle the elements. And on the Badlands® and Heritage Limited model, there is available advanced 4x4. The system disperses power to all four wheels to help add traction and minimize wheelslip when the going gets tough.
