2023 Ford Bronco Sport: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The Ford Bronco Sport debuted in 2021 as the smaller sibling to the larger Bronco SUV. This compact SUV saw only minor updates in its second model year, and we expect the 2023 Ford Bronco Sport to be a carryover model.

The Ford Bronco Sport arrived as one of the most ruggedly styled compact crossovers on the market, with its squared front end, upright glasshouse, matte black wheel arches and door handles, and other throwback cues from its rough-and-tumble past.

Inside, the Bronco tones the rugged looks way down, with a very car-like interior, meeting the typical family's needs, but it still boasts an optional rubberized floor for muddy journeys. This cabin also has all the latest tech, including an eight-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and more.

We expect no changes to the 2023 Bronco Sport inside or out.

Under its hood, the current Bronco Sport comes standard with a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine that kicks out 181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque. Optionally, buyers can bump to a more off-road-ready 245-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Regardless of the engine, every Bronco Sport comes standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. We expect no powertrain updates in the 2023 Bronco Sport.

The current Bronco Sport is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ and includes standard active lane control, blind-spot monitors, automatic high beams, and automatic emergency braking. Optionally, buyers can equip parking sensors, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, and more safety tech. We expect the safety ratings and tech to remain the same in the 2023 Bronco Sport.

Pricing & Release Date

There’s no official on-sale date for the 2023 Bronco Sport, but we anticipate a fall 2022 release.

Pricing is also unknown. However, with it being a carryover model, we expect no big changes from its current MSRP range of $28,910-$35,585 (destination fees included).

This compact SUV will battle the Ford Escape, Jeep Cherokee, and Subaru Crosstrek.
