Ford Increases Bronco Sport Pricing Again Because They Can

Downtrodden new car production mixed with a market that can’t get enough new vehicles has enabled Ford to boost prices

  • Depending on trim, pricing has climbed up to $540.

If you’ve kept an eye on the car business over the last year, you’ll have to agree that it has been turned on its ear.
