Not sure if this had been mentioned or not yet, but thought some of you might want to know this.

"We did not engineer Bronco Sport for flat towing, as our research shows relatively few customers plan to tow Bronco Sports versus Bronco owners. However, we are always listening to our customers and are open to their feedback on desired future capabilities."

Too bad there's not a rabid fanbase advocating for a manual transmission Sport.

My gut feeling tells me this was always the plan but wanted to keep this card until it needed to be played for example if the build and price got delayed.

I am very disappointed. I would buy a Sport only when I can flat tow behind an RV.
That would have been a big issue for me too, but I downsized to a class B and no longer need a toad.

Serious question... and spoken with respect for anyone’s wishes... doesn’t flat towing put a lot of stress on a vehicle over time... are folks going to drop 35k and up to pull a Bronco? Not a statement I swear, I know I couldn’t afford that. I usually see 2 door hybrids out there behind rv’s not off road trucks and jeeps.

Wranglers are probably the #1 towed vehicle. I’ve towed both a Wrangler and a Grand Cherokee. I don’t think the $35k entry fee would stop a lot of RVers if it was an option. If you include an aux braking system it’ll cost 10% on top of that to get it set up to tow. A lot of it has to do with weight. Even base Wranglers now push the limits for gas engine Class A's. When I had a gasser I towed an older Wrangler with a stick, no A/C and a 4 cylinder. When I switched to a diesel pusher coach I could tow the Grand Cherokee. Those new little hybrids are so light anything can tow them.
