When the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport was revealed alongside its big brother, the Ford Bronco this past Monday night, interested buyers were able to secure their spot in line by placing a reservation for a particular model. The top of the line trim level for both models was the First Edition, a limited production vehicle with a host of special touches. And after the Bronco First Edition sold out in a matter of hours, it also now looks like the Bronco Sport First Edition is spoken for as well.
Ford updated its site today by placing a “reservations full” banner across the Bronco Sport First Edition. This means that all 2,000 examples are spoken for, and it only took less than two full days to happen. But that’s not terribly surprising given the fact that the First Edition combines the capability of the Badlands with the styling of the Outer Banks and some unique touches to create the ultimate Bronco Sport.
Like the Ford Bronco First Edition, the Bronco Sport First Edition comes loaded with every available option as standard equipment. It features a starting MSRP of $38,500 (minus destination charges) and wears unique Shadow Black graphic decals on the hood and sides of the vehicle. Up front, there’s a Carbonized Grey grille with black Bronco lettering, which provides a nice contrast.
On the outside, the Bronco Sport First Edition comes standard with the Safari-style Roof option, body-color door handles, LED lighting, black side mirrors, black roof rack side rails, bash plates, and a Shadow Black roof. The First Edition rolls on 17 inch Ebony Black painted aluminum wheels wrapped in 29 inch Falken Wildpeak A/T tires.
On the inside, the First Edition comes with Navy Pier leather-trimmed seats with mini-perforations. The front seats are heated, and the driver’s seat is 8 way power adjustable. The First Edition comes standard with dual-zone automatic temperature control, remote start, a power moonroof, wireless charging pad, heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane-Keeping System, and BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert.
There are plenty of technology additions inside the First Edition Bronco Sport as well, including a 10-speaker B&O sound system, and SYNC 3 with an 8 inch touchscreen and voice-activated navigation system.
The Bronco Sport First Edition is powered by Ford’s 2.0L EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that produces a targeted 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, and is backed up by an 8 speed automatic transmission. Other nicities including an off-road tuned suspension, Advanced 4×4 with a twin-clutch rear drive unit, and Trail Control.
With so many nice standard features and unique touches, it’s no surprise that the First Edition Bronco Sport drew strong interest among buyers in a short amount of time.
