2021 Ford Bronco Sport Fuel Economy Ratings Revealed For Canada

The Ford Bronco Sport was developed as a rugged but affordable off-road-focused crossover, which means that buyers will likely be a bit more concerned about fuel economy than those looking to purchase its big brother, the Ford Bronco. And while we’re still waiting for official EPA numbers to be released, we now have Canada’s Bronco Sport fuel economy ratings to share.

2021 Ford Bronco Sport Canadian Fuel Economy Ratings
City Highway Combined
1.5L EcoBoost I-3 25 MPG 28 MPG 26 MPG
2.0L EcoBoost I-4 21 MPG 26 MPG 23 MPG

Bronco Sport models equipped with the base Ford 1.5L EcoBoost I-3 feature converted U.S. fuel economy ratings of 25 miles-per-gallon in the city, 28 mpg on the highway, and 26 mpg combined. The base engine, which comes standard on Base, Big Bend, and Outer Banks trim levels, is targeted to produce 181 horsepower and 190 pound-feet of torque.

Meanwhile, Bronco Sports with Ford’s 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 are rated to return 21 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway, and 23 mpg combined. The bigger EcoBoost comes standard on Badlands and First Edition trims, and is targeted to produce a best-in-class 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque.

Both engines are backed up by Ford’s 8 speed automatic transmission. On Badlands and First Edition models, the transmission also comes with SelectShift technology and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

These Bronco Sport fuel economy figures make the crossover quite competitive with its closest competition. The Jeep Compass Trailhawk, which is powered by FCA’s 2.4L I-4 that produces 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque, is rated at 22 mpg in the city, 30 mpg on the highway, and 25 mpg combined.

Meanwhile, the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk is powered by the automaker’s 1.3L I-4 that produces 177 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque, and is rated to return 22 mpg in the city, 27 mpg on the highway, and 24 mpg combined.

As we reported back in July, Job 1 Bronco Sport production is scheduled to start at the Ford Hermosillo Assembly Plant in Mexico on October 26th, 2020. Order banks opened up back on July 14th, 2020.

    not sure why i expected it to be better than that. my minds set on the 2 door MT so I-4 the way to. I thought it would get MPGs closer to this range. Now im starting to think itll only get maybe 18 city and 21 highway. Which is about as bad as a heavy 4runner with the underpowered v6.

  2. Robert Levins

    I kind a think that 25 mpg combined is too high.All that power,weight and big tires just doesn’t add up.However,if it really does average 25,hats off to ‘em! I think the new bronco is a winner either way.I wonder if a EV version is in the works?Electric power seems to be the future,thank God,we have been hosed at the pump for decades.

  3. GaryH

    I think think some of the comments are confusing the Bronco with the Bronco Sport.

    Also, isn’t the base Bronco Sport the 1.5L I-3 that’s in the Escape? I don’t think the 1.5L is a 4cyl as mentioned.

  4. Todd

    What they fail to discuss is that these Turbo ICE engines require 91 (or maybe even 93) Octane to achieve the claimed performance. The premium price for the required fuel is likely not compensated in mileage gains.

  5. Rob

    What is that in L/100km so that I can get a grasp of it?

  6. Joseph M

    Patiently waiting for a hybrid or EV version
    Not impressed with Mexico production, why not North America?????

    1. Chris H

      @Joseph M: You do realize that Mexico is part of North America, right???

  7. Israel

    Mexico built good Ford cars for American people we love Ford Arriba el Ford bronco bato bien benido bronco

    With gas under $2/gallon who cares about MPG’S.

    Electric vehicles require Fossil Fuels to generate Electricity to charge your batteries. Just what you need when you out and about Offroading. People don’t use their Brains.
