We’ve already shown you leaks and spy shots of the exterior of Ford’s upcoming baby Bronco – which we believe will be called Bronco Sport. But now, we have gotten our hands on fresh new spy photos that show the upcoming vehicle’s interior.
To that end, the photos show key parts of the center stack, including a new infotainment and vent layout that are completely different from those on the Escape platform mate. Whereas the new Escape features slim, flowing shapes, the Ford Bronco Sport gets chunkier, more vertically-oriented vents flaking its stand-up central infotainment screen.
However, the primary infotainment controls – the rotary volume and tuning knobs – look identical to those on the 2020 Escape, but the hazard lights button gives the area a different appearance. There’s also a notable difference in the engine start button: whereas the button on the Escape is tucked away on the instrument panel, it’s placed on the center stack on the baby Bronco.
Black camo is covering the HVAC controls, but they’re likely placed on the lower third of the center stack, with parts likely shared with those on the Escape. The steering wheel, rotary gear selector and buttons on the console of this Ford Bronco Sport prototype look identical to that on the Escape.
The all-new baby Bronco will join the body-on-frame Bronco models, including the two-door and four-door SUV as well as the four-door Bronco pickup truck, thereby creating a family of Bronco vehicles. The “baby” model is expected to be unveiled later this year and go on sale shortly thereafter.
