2021 Ford Bronco Sport: Off-Road, Snow and Overlanding Review

The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is a compact crossover with a big chest of off-road features. Do the G.O.A.T. modes really matter? Or is this just another mall crawler with aspirations to greatness? In this video Ryan tests the Bronco Sport First Edition with a 2-liter Turbo engine, by climbing mountains, driving roads, testing the 0-60, economy and then how well it can handle deep, late-season snow in the Cascade Mountains. It’s a Bronco Sport adventure like none-other.

  1. I hate adaptive cruise. Hate it. Have it in 3 cars, 3 brands. All awful, Mazda. Honda, Lexus

  2. That situation where you got stuck to me is totally unacceptable, I mean for me I expect a 4wd vehicle to get me through that snow. I drive a Honda Accord with 4 studded snows that would get me through that IF IF it had the clearance LOL.

  3. This video wasn’t bad until you got stuck in the snow… in a first edition…. I took my Big Bend trim line with ALL SEASON tires out in worse terrain in snow/ice/mud/ and sand… I used slippery goat mode and sand… I NEVER GOT STUCK….. learn to drive before you do test drive videos. You made yourself look bad… not the bronco.

  4. Go to my channel to see a REAL video of how the bronco holds up even on the lower trim line

  5. Great review! Thanks for pushing it a bit, it performed considerably better than I thought it would. I figured it was an Escape with some aesthetic cladding, it appears that’s not the case.

  6. Interestingly capable. it more then I will need, but that does not mean I get one. However if I ever decide some day in life I want an American made vehicle, then this SUV will fit the need.

  7. Been watching a lot of your off-road reviews lately, and I really think you have one of the best formats for comprehensively reviewing vehicles on and off-road. You really showcase their abilities and limits well. Also really enjoy watching the 4Runner make cameos in other videos. It’s going to be a great 4wd “standard” to compare other vehicles to. You’ve got yourself another subscriber!

  8. I wish I coulda tagged along, but love the review. I like the Bronco Sport, but am glad I bought my Crosstrek Sport. That sticker price is a real deal breaker.

  9. I’d be curious to see a Cherokee Trailhawk take the same route. You can get a fully loaded one for much less than that First Edition. Even less than a fully loaded Badlands as well.

  10. Oh yeah nice video, i think is better at low speed to climb than my subaru forester XT 2014. About fuel economy and driving on road is it comparable experience?

  11. I was just in a Badlands trim a few days ago. It’s nice. I liked it. But it is smaller in real life than what it looks like on screen. It’s not a Subaru Forester or even a Ford Escape. And while it’s taller (great for headroom) it is like ten inches shorter. You will notice that ten inch loss in the rear cargo area and in legroom comfort. I have no idea why people keep saying the Bronco Sport is trying to compete with the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. Its size is really on par with the Jeep Compass. But the deal breaker for me is the price. It’s just not worth it. $40K is way too much for this vehicle. My cousin bought the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with the off-road package for $43K. Three grand more than this Badlands and there is no comparison at all. They’re not in the same league at all. I suspect the price of the Bronco Sport will drop significantly next year when the hoopla is gone.

  12. A win for Ford, again! The ’21 F150 just came available a couple months ago and I see them everywhere already. Sure this and the Bronco will follow suite. Also a win for the Falken AT. Love that tire. Pretty sure my 04 Grand Cherokee when it had open diffs would’ve struggled on that hill climb or not made it at all.

  13. You don’t seem to give up THAT much capability for much better MPG/tech/comfort. Great review.

  14. But, you can manually pre-select closing both clutches, which removes the slip hesitation, Renegade has it only for center and i wish Ivtm4 would have it for additional help when it’s obvious what’s coming, especially ivtm4 which has tons of hesitation in diagonal tests
