The only true DIRECT competition to the Bronco Sport Include
FCA - Jeep Compass
GM - Chevy Trailblazer (Not Blazer)
Hyundai - Kia Seltos
Mazda - Mazda CX30
Mitsubishi - Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
Others that are close but slightly different
Honda - Honda HRV (Smaller)
Toyota - Toyota CHR...
Ain’t never going to happen. The only new ford that has a n/A motor is the GT Mustang and 3.3 and 5.0 f-150 (which are their worst two selling gas motors)
Every thing else is hybrid or turbo.
And manuals are dead. Even the Ford Focus has it as an OPTION on the Focus ST. The 7speed auto is...
even at $1200. With normal driving it would take 12 years to get that money back. Hybrids made a little bit of sense when they were getting close to 50 miles per gallon when a normal engine was getting only high 20s miles per gallon. Now a normal vehicle gets over 30 miles per gallon combine...
Pretty much everything in this class is made over seas, Bronco Sport, compass, CX30, Trailblazer, Seltos, etc.
But ford has the most hourly employees out of any auto maker so at least they are trying to keep America working.
