After 24 years of absence, 2020 is the year of Ford Bronco’s return. This 6th gen. is available in both 2-door and 4-door versions. A “Sport” 4-door variant is sold as a separate model. While the standard Bronco uses a chassis with side members separated from the bodywork, the Bronco Sport benefits of the C2 structure, or the same of the Kuga/Escape, with which it shares also most of the mechanics. Differently from the other two editions, the Sport has the engine in a transverse rather than longitudinal position and a non-permanent all-wheel-drive system. In fact, the Sport uses the Ford patented “GOAT” system which allows the driver to choose the right parameters about traction to have the best performance on every terrain. Also, the dimensions are different: the Sport is 40 centimeters shorter than the standard 4-door (4,38 x 4,78 centimeters). The 6th gen. variants can equip two engines: the first one develops 270HP and the other one 310HP. As regards the Sport variant, the choice is between 184HP and 284HP. All these engines benefit from an 8-speed automatic transmission. Comparing the Bronco and the Bronco Sport, there’s also a price difference: while the first costs starting from 28.000$ if bought as a 2-door and from 33.000$ if bought as a 4-door (pictured), the Sport’s price starts at just 26.000$. There are still no official prices in Europe.
