Cool article and video, Vaughn Gittin Jr. and crew conquer hell's gate in Moab demonstrating the Sport is no gimmick or joke disgracing the Bronco brand.

Ford's Bronco Sport Can Handle a Legendary Moab Challenge
"Hell's Gate" is one of the most dramatic off-road obstacles in Moab. Watch as the Bronco-branded crossover conquers it with ease.

For those who say the "Sport" isn't a real BRONCO! Tell this guy!

I will be honest...I did not order a sport to take on hells gate. But I am certainly proud to know, this little bronco came to play and packs all the punch you could possibly want. I am not stating this to slight anything...I have a difficult time believing the escape has those same capabilities. Engineers labored to make the bronco and bronco sport jeep killers.

Hells gate isn't super hard, it's just high risk.

1:17 is where you see Kia's rear bumper take some damage.

It's fine. Cabezone is a Cherokee TH owner that still frequents a forum for a vehicle he doesn't own for whatever reason. Not sure why.
Yeah I could tell from the holy attitude. It's a jeep thing.

Proving a stated point isn't the same as "holy attitude", IMHO. I wouldn't of thought an Escape could make it up either. But after seeing that Sorento do it, Hell's Gate doesn't seem that difficult. Just risky.

Point proven Cabezone.

How about in a Crown Vic? Full disclosure his dog is a trained spotter. Not Hell's Gate, Hell's Revenge but pretty crazy:

Proving a stated point...correct. though I never stated the bronco sport was better than any other vehicle. I simply stated it's capability as many felt it tarnished the Bronco reputation as a real SUV. Bringing Kia, jeep, or other manufacturing into the discussion is high ground...want to support them...go to their forums...peace be with you.
