Ford Bronco Sport Hybrid Variant Coming In 2024: Report

Sponsored

Unlike its big brother, the Ford Bronco, the Ford Bronco Sport launch has gone rather smoothly, save for at least one production cut brought on by the semiconductor chip shortage. In spite of this, the model has earned mostly positive reviews, won a prestigious safety award, and attracted most of its owners from other brands, including Jeep. However, Ford’s rugged compact crossover is just getting started, and there are many updates planned for the coming years, including the addition of a Ford Bronco Sport hybrid, according to Automotive News.

The Ford Bronco Sport hybrid is expected to launch in 2024, according to the report, though it does not specify what sort of powertrain the crossover will receive. However, the Bronco Sport is built at the Ford Hermosillo Assembly Plant alongside the 2022 Ford Maverick, which comes standard with Ford’s 2.5L Atkinson cycle four-cylinder hybrid drivetrain that is rated to produce 191 (total system) horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque.

It’s possible that the hybrid Bronco Sport will gain this same exact powertrain – which is also present in the Ford Escape hybrid – or maybe use an updated version of it when it launches in 2024. All three of these vehicles share the same Ford C2 platform, so it’s certainly within the realm of possibility and would presumably offer a big upgrade in terms of efficiency for the Bronco Sport.

In the meantime, order banks for the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport opened up back in August, as Ford Authority previously reported. Production of the 2021 Bronco Sport will end at the Hermosillo Assembly Plant on October 29th, while production of the 2022 Bronco Sport is scheduled to begin on November 11th, 2021. However, it’s worth noting that as always, these dates are subject to change, particularly in light of the ongoing chip shortage.

    This bodes well for those who are apparently clamoring for a Maverick AWD Hybrid.

    Possibly my C-max replaccement. In 2024 I’ll be close to 200k miles.

    The hybrid version will have much better initial torque and fuel range than the non-hybrid model. This will make it a better selling model.

    The Bronco Sport is off to a good start that can get better with time done right

    I’m confused. If bronco and bronco sport all come standard with awd or 4wd whatever you call it, how can the sport have the same hybrid power train as the maverick when Ford can’t make a hybrid awd maverick? Will the sports not be awd or would they update the hybrid to be capable of awd?

      The Escape (same platform as the Bronco Sport and Maverick) has both FWD and AWD hybrid models. They probably are basing it off the Escape’s hybrid system since it more resembles that; FA probably mentioned the Maverick as it’s Ford’s latest release.

    I don’t think a full BEV Bronco and Bronco Sport, are too far off into the future. As technology advances, battery range and charge times will greatly improve.

    Ford will adopt the same drivetrain as the RAV4 and Crv Hybrid and use an electric
    Motor for the AWD, already in production in the Lincoln clones.
