I'm Mark just got my 2023 Bronco Sport last Wednesday had a 2021 F-150 Crew Cab 4X4 with the 3.5 Eco Boost and 10 Speed Automatic!!I'm single never really hauled much in the F-150 mulch once a year!!And now i'm paying less every month for payments!!I wish it had more power but it isn't bad for such a little engine and 25 mpg is a bonus!!And i love the Atlas blue as well as Family members and co workers!!

Not to mention it had some nice standard features for one up from the Bottom Model Trim Level like LED Headlights and Tail lights that are options on the F-150!!Also on my 21 F-150 you would have to be stopped to check your Tire Pressures on the center screen!!The older F-150's 2019 and older i had you could look at the tire pressures on the center screen while driving down the road like the Bronco Sport does i like that!!
Welcome! The Atlas blue looks great on the Sport!

2022 BS BB
Good morning all!
My name is Mike. I picked up a 2022 BS BB last week. The next day I went to Discount and had some 245/65 K02s added. My girlfriend and I messed around on the beach and some little trails that offshoot from it (San Luis Pass for any Texas folk here). I had a 2003 FX4 Ranger back in the day, and the size of the BS reminds me a lot of that. I traded my 4x4 Ram 1500 in for this, and it feels great to be in something smaller again.

My last Ford was a 2014 Focus ST. I had that car fully bolted and was E85 tuned at 10k miles. I traded it in at 95,000 with absolutely zero mechanical issues. It was driven hard on autocross days and the backroads of the Texas Hill Country . I am hoping this little ecoboost will prove to be just as reliable as the 2.0L.

A Badlands with the 1.5L would be the perfect choice for me. Ultimately, fuel efficiently won out hints the BB package.

I look forward to being part of the BS community!

Welcome to the forum! I’ve spent a lot of time in the Texas Hill Country over the past 35 years. Kerrville area more specifically. Awesome area with lots of places made for the BS.

Greetings from Western NY!. Had my BSBB for about a month now and must say I was blessed to find her. Got it stuck once but now know its limitations. My last FWD was an 89 F150 rolling on 40s, before that a CJ5 rolling on 36s. The BS isnt quite that but I can get out of my driveway when the 💩 gets thick!

Hi, my name is Joe. I live in SoCal. I recently bought a 2023 Ford Bronco Sport Badlands with all the options. It has been an experience learning all the features of the BB, especially G.O.A.T. My GMC Sierra is 2WD or 4WD high or low, not the BB. reading posts on this forum has helped. Glad to be here.

Greetings,

I bought my Bronco Sport back in June and I've enjoyed it so much I've already driven it 8500 miles (no issues). I'm actually trying to cut back on the long road trips because I'm on pace for around 25k miles in the first year.

The story of how I bought the vehicle:
I live in Olympia, Washington, in the western-half of the state.
Me and a coworker were working in Spokane (eastern-part of state) for a couple days. Meanwhile, I was tracking the status of a number of Bronco Sports Badlands that were "in-transit" to dealerships around the northwest. I was particularly waiting on a Cactus Gray to show up in Moses Lake (central Washington) and an Eruption Green to arrive in Boise, ID.
On the morning we were leaving Spokane, headed back west, I got an email from the Moses Lake dealership, letting me know the Cactus Gray had arrived. Knowing how quickly the Bronco Sports were getting snatched up (particularly Badlands), I decided we'd be taking a little break in Moses Lake.
Long-story less-long: We drove home in separate vehicles. Coworker in our work vehicle, me in a brand-new Bronco Sport.

Since then:
-I've done some minor off-roading, mostly on forest-service roads on my way to trailheads. Though, I did spend a couple days in Central Washington (Bethel Ridge and Wenas area) just driving remote, difficult roads for fun.
-I went on one big road trip with my wife to Glacier National Park. I drove about 2000ish miles on that trip. It was comfortable, we had no problems packing lots of stuff in the vehicle, and for the entire trip averaged around 26mpg.
-Lots of other little road-trips around the state

Looking forward to:
-Trying out some snow in the mountains soon
-Driving Washington to Alaska in the not-too-distant future (2500ish mile trip)
-Taking some nice shots of my BS that I'll post here

Anyway... that's more than enough for now!

Hey! I’m also in Olympia! I too have a cactus grey but it’s a big bend. Wish I could say I’ve driven it as much as you have, but day trips to ocean shores or mt rainier or Long Beach have been great. Capitol state forest has been interesting as well the two times we went. Cheers!

Oh wow, in that original post I was only at 8500 miles..

I just came back from a long weekend road trip and nearly got up to 15k (14997 miles in about 8 months...). My main problem with this vehicle is I can't stop driving it.

I've gone up to Capitol Forest a couple times, lots of fun, sometimes scary/narrow roads up there. I wonder if there's any snow at the top right now, I might have to check it out again soon.

Hello Everyone,

Christopher or just Chris here.



Hello everyone!

Last week I traded in my 2021 Ram 1500 for a 2023 bronco Sport Outer Banks that was a leftover. I will admit I did not do my research and didn’t know about the Badlands extra off-road and 4x4 features, so a little buyers remorse on my end.

I’ve generally been a Jeep guy most of my life, having owned a Patriot, Commander and Cherokee. The Patriot was my favorite and I did mod it slightly for better beach driving. These days the line up is less impressive and astronomical in price. $48,000 for a compass trailhawk? They must have lose their minds.

So I went with the Bronco Sport but like I said bought the not off-road trim… However I don’t think this will be much of an issue. I don’t rock climb or anything but I do like going down sandy, muddy roads and driving on the beach.

I plan on a lift kit and AT tires in the coming year. I think with those two mods I can do my basic off-roading. There isn’t much available here in Pennsylvania as it is.

I look forward to reading what you’ve all done and advice you all have given. I’m not mechanically knowledgeable and will need pointers and tips as I go.

Look forward to hanging out with you all!
