The all-new, 2021 Ford Bronco Sport expands the reborn Bronco family with a small crossover that delivers plenty of capability in an approachable package. This mini Bronco is no wimp, featuring plenty of off-road prowess and capability. To demonstrate just that, The Blue Oval has revealed the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport Tow RZR Concept.

Announced for the Bronco’s 55th birthday, Ford says that the Bronco Sport Tow RZR Concept is aimed at showing how adventurers can haul more outdoor gear. The concept matches the passenger comfort and technology of the Badlands trim level with various cargo accessories, such as the Yakima HD Bar crossbars as well as an OffGrid medium cargo basket.

But the piece de resistance of the Bronco Sport Tow RZR Concept is the Class II Trailer Tow Package with 2,200 pounds of trailering capacity, which allows it to tow off-road runners like the all-new Polaris RZR XP Turbo 1000 which, incidentally, was unveiled as part of the Bronco birthday celebration.

The Bronco Sport features 2,200 pounds of maximum towing capacity on the Badlands trim and First Edition, and at 2,000 pounds on the Base, Big Bend, and Outer Banks trim levels.

The all-new, 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is based on the Ford C2 platform shared with the fourth-gen Ford Escape, first-gen Lincoln Corsair, and the 2019 and newer Ford Focus sold in international markets.

The rugged crossover’s base engine is the 1.5L EcoBoost turbocharged three-cylinder (181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque) mated to Ford’s 8-speed automatic transmission. The optional engine is the 2.0L EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder (245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque) mated to an 8-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with oil cooler and manual shifting mode with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

The Bronco Sport goes into production at the end of October at the Ford Hermosillo plant in Mexico. Meanwhile, the parts seen here are likely to be available as accessories around the time that the vehicle begins arriving at dealerships.

The Bronco Sport Tow RZR Concept is joined by the Bronco Sport Trail Rig concept, which aims to demonstrate the off-road potential of the rugged crossover.
