2023 Ford Bronco Sport Exterior and Dimensions

Ford Bronco Sport Exterior Design Rating

2023 Bronco Sport Exterior

Ford's Bronco design language is sublime. Both the Sport and the full-fat Bronco feature retro-inspired design, though the Sport a bit smaller and a little cuter. We dig the boxy design that's unlike anything else available in the segment, and that's a good thing. You can quickly lose most of its rivals in a parking lot, but not the Bronco Sport.

All models come standard with LED headlights, which play a pivotal role in the Ford Bronco Sport's safety rating. The Outer Banks and Badlands also gain LED fog lights.

The customization options make it possible to create a Bronco Sport unique to you. And you can have it with steelies, which is a must. We love the Bronco Sport (and Land Rover Defender) for making steelies cool again. Base and Big Bend models ride on 17-inch alloys, while the Outer Banks and Badlands upgrade to 18-inch wheels. A power sunroof is a standalone feature available on all models.

By far the most appealing models from a visual perspective are the new Heritage and Heritage Limited models with their 1960s-inspired exteriors. That includes various Oxford White accents, wheels in the same color, and bodyside stripes.

The Ford Bronco Sport's length is 172.2, and it's 82.2 inches wide; it's either 70.2 or 70.3 inches tall, depending on the trim. The Badlands model is slightly taller at 71.4 inches. All versions ride on a 105.1-inch wheelbase.

Interestingly, Ford also supplies several figures you'd typically only find in the brochures of serious off-roaders. We rarely see manufacturers quote overhang figures, but Ford has them. The bodywork extends 33.7 inches from the front wheels and 33.9 inches from the rears. Standard ground clearance for most Ford Bronco Sport models is 7.8 inches, while the Badlands comes standard with 8.6 inches with the stock tires and 8.8 inches with the optional tires. The approach and departure angles are rated at 21.7 and 30.4 degrees on standard models, respectively, and 30/32.8 degrees for the Badlands model.

The lightest model is the base Bronco Sport with a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine. It weighs an impressively low 3,467 pounds, so even the tiny engine manages to feel peppy. With the 2.0L engine, the Bronco Sport has a base curb weight of 3,707 lbs. That's still impressively low, but keep in mind that you can quickly get the Ford Bronco Sport's weight up to around 4,000 lbs by adding larger wheels and some of the optional accessories.

Exterior Colors

As is usually the case, the color palette is limited depending on the trim. We find this odd, as Ford opened up the Mustang Mach-E's available colors to the entire range. Why not do the same with exterior colors for a big seller like the Ford Bronco Sport? Anyway, the base model's available colors are unspectacular. The five available colors are no-cost but also dull. Options include Shadow Black, Iconic Silver Metallic, Carbonized Gray Metallic, and Oxford White. Hot Pepper Red is a more exciting option but costs $495.

One step up is the Sport which adds a much more interesting selection of shades like Area 51, Alto Blue Metallic ($495), Cactus Gray, Cyber Orange Metallic ($995), Eruption Green Metallic, and Atlas Blue Metallic. The new Heritage looks great with its white roof, grille, and wheels, and you can contrast this with a main body color in Robin's Egg Blue, a $995 option; other than this, it mostly shares the base model's palette. Finally, the Heritage Limited has the smallest selection consisting of Yellowstone, Peak Blue, and Robin's Egg Blue, but none of them cost anything extra.
