The Bronco Sport's powertrains, for one, are the same as the Escape's. A turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder with 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque is standard, while a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 245 hp and 275 lb-ft is optional. An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard across the board, with upper trim levels offering a more sophisticated AWD system with a twin-clutch torque-vectoring rear differential.
Size-wise, the Bronco Sport is smaller than the Escape, although larger than the diminutive EcoSport. At 172.7 inches long and with a 105.1-inch wheelbase, its footprint is similar to rivals including the Subaru Crosstrek and Jeep Compass. But the Bronco Sport's tall, boxy body is more reminiscent of the Jeep Renegade, while its stepped-roof design reminds us of the Nissan Xterra. Its headlight and taillight designs are very similar to the standard Bronco's, and available styling bits including tow hooks, steel wheels, and a wide range of accessories play up the off-road image.
