Ford will be introducing a new small SUV based on the newest generation Bronco called the Bronco Sport. Specs aren't available yet, but the automaker's first teaser image suggests a rugged new offering with some of the off-road flair of the Jeep Renegade. The vehicle will join the revived Ford Bronco in an expanded lineup of future SUVs around 2020.
According to Motor Authority, the Bronco Sport will have a platform based on the new Focus Active. The Active replaces the Focus for 2020, with a lifted stance akin to the Subaru Crosstrek as the brand moves almost completely away from passenger cars. However, unlike the roughly $20,000 Ford EcoSport, the Bronco Sport may end up coming with a higher price tag to differentiate it.
For comparison, the new Bronco will reportedly be based on the upcoming Ranger pickup and may have a more dramatic, boxy design not unlike an old Jeep CJ. Unfortunately, full details haven't been released yet.
According to Automotive News, the Bronco Sport will likely debut in April. It is planned to go on sale later this year, ahead of its larger sibling. This page will be updated as more information becomes available.
