My 2001 Escape...I mean I’m glad they refreshed it into the Bronco sport....but couldn’t they have stretched it a little? Lol

The nice thing about an older vehicle.....YouTube videos of how to fix stuff....just had the column shifter lose all connection....free movement....plastic part that deteriorated after 19 years.

The size was fine when the kids were small, but now a little more space would be nice, and it has zero to do with the 3rd row....our highlander 3rd row has been used once...it‘s nice have the extra cargo space.

Maybe I’m the only one that always carries cables, coolant, toolbox.

If the big Bronco was actually bigger inside, I’d buy the mall crawler package if they offered one...insulated top, non-removable top and doors, more cup holders ....ha!

But....I need to see these cars in person, no matter what the model.
I’m replacing my tahoe with a bronco sport. I didn’t need the third row or the extra space it created when I took them out. The bronco sport is the perfect size for me.

Tahoe to a Bronco sport is a pretty big downsizing....I might need to see how small the big Bronco is.

It is. But we just took a road trip in my wife’s new compact suv. We put the rear seats down, had plenty of room for all our stuff with room for more. Didn’t feel cramped. So we are going from a Sentra and Tahoe to two small suvs. The bronco sport in my mind will feel like my Tahoe went to the gym with a big belly and now it’s a toned capable core. Also French fries.

Hi Everyone!
If you have a choice between Bronco 4 door ( big bend) with sassquad and Bronco sport first edition , what would you choose? and reason for it

Thank you so much
Lets see
  • Bronco Sport
    • everyday usefulness
    • practicality easier to park, maneuver in town
    • capability on and off road for adventures
    • Fuel economy overall 2.0 EcoBoost vs V6
    • Price point
  • Bronco
    • More Extreme Trail riding - adventures
    • Off road capability
    • V6 EcoBoost engine
    • "cool" factor

Bronco Sport would be my choice as the daily driver that can do when needed to, Bronco..

Nice post. The Bronco Sport fits my current life better (family, work, city life), but I’m also using it as a first step in to off-roading.

The Badlands model will give me enough capability (I think/hope) to see if this can be my next big hobby. If so, and as kids start heading out, I can upgrade to a full Bronco for my next purchase.

I have a friend with the 4Runner TRD Pro who I’ll go on trails, sand and the actual outer banks with. Will be fun to see how it holds up.

I personally like the Badlands Sport package, it offers what people need and gives the capability if they want.

My daughter is going to get one, she wants to drive one of our Mannequins when they arrive to get a feel for it...

I have heard people call the a puffed up Escape, however the videos I have seen, an escape would poo itself looking at the obstacles that the BSport has conquered..

I believe it will be a great adventure type SUV that will fit the niche void that the others have forgot about...so when you get it enjoy the outdoors.

Yep. It will be interesting when some actual reviews start coming in assessing that capability. It's promising sofar, and the only other thing in the size class are the trail rated Jeeps or perhaps the much more expensive Land Rovers.

Looks like they are picing up reservations for scheduling the last week of October, so with production, depending on quantity to fill and shipping of 3-4 weeks.

I would put you at early January at the latest so you could make sure it arrived, Mid December to be safe..

I think happens to all of us. I always "fight" this sensation by flatly refusing to buy ANY car in its 1st model year(see the 1 exception below); that way I get some advantages that the 2nd year usually brings (less bugs / more options/standard stuff) AND gives me time to think and analyze if i REALLY need it vs an impulse buy.

That said I must admit: I've never been this excited about any new car introduction since Mazda divorced Ford in 2013 and went fully Japanese again and we went test driving the "all new" Mazda6 which we did get for my wife (only time I broke the "no 1st year models" rule)

yeah, no thanks, I wish Ford would just get their bronco’s out quicker.
Our local dealer was thinking December for one to show up in their showroom.

Hey...did you like your forester? It seems a little odd to me, someone who has been in an Escape for 19 years.
