Ford Has Showed the Bronco Sport CUV Based on the Kuga

The American brand has introduced the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport, a five-door CUV, which is based on the Ford Kuga.

The long-awaited premiere of the revived Ford Bronco has finally taken place. There are two modifications at once: the Bronco and the Bronco Sport. The first is a utilitarian frame CUV, the second is an SUV-like crossover with a load-bearing body based on the 2020 Ford Kuga.

The new cars have a common name and style, which makes Bronco a separate sub-brand and forms a special line-up of models, which can be further expanded in the future.

When designing the two cars, the company wanted to make the Bronco and the Bronco Sport look similar to each other, but there was also another goal. They made every effort to pass off the crossovers as SUVs. The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport looks very brutal and somewhat resembles other modern SUVs that use retrospective motifs in their design.

By its dimensions, the Ford Bronco Sport can be attributed to compact crossovers. Its length is 4,387 mm, width – 2,088 mm, height 1,783-1,890 mm (depending on the configuration). The new car is built on the same modular platform as the Ford Kuga.

In fact, both are compact models with a load-bearing structure. Their engines are also identical: a 1.5-liter EcoBoost petrol engine (184 hp / 257 Nm) and a 2.0-liter EcoBoost petrol unit (248 hp / 373 Nm).

The engines work in conjunction with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The crossover will not have front-wheel drive versions. All versions of the Bronco Sport are available with a clutch that transfers some of the thrust to the rear axle.
