2021 Ford Bronco Sport Fuel Economy Ratings Released In The US

Pricing and power separate the Ford Bronco Sport’s two engines, not fuel economy


  • Canadian ratings are already officialized.

  • The Bronco Sport is the baby Bronco but sales should be huge.

  • The compact SUV is powered by turbocharged 3-cylinder or 4-cylinder engines.

  • These are Ford’s numbers.


Ford’s Bronco family of SUVs is perhaps the most anticipated for 2021. While the Big Bronco is the one most are lusting after, it’s the Bronco Sport, aka Baby Bronco, that is likely to see big volume. Up to now, we had all relevant information save for fuel consumption figures. And now, we have them.

The majority of 2021 Ford Bronco Sport SUVs that will hit the road will be powered by the 181-horsepower 1.5-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder engine, also found in the Ford Escape. Through the 8-speed automatic transmission and AWD system, Autoblog reports that it will return 25 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway, and 25 mpg in a combined cycle.

The Badlands will be, for the moment at least, the only version equipped with the more powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. This one is also found in the Ford Escape and produces 250 horsepower and 277 lb.-ft. of torque. It is rated at 21 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway, and 23 mpg in a combined cycle.

In Canada, the 3-cylinder Bronco Sport is rated at an estimated 9.3 L/100km city, 8.3 L/100km highway, and 8.9 L/100km combined. The 2.0-litre is rated at 11.1 L/100km city, 8.9 L/100km highway, and 10.1 L/100km combined.
