The Ford Bronco Sport debuted for the 2021 model year as a new, smaller, crossover sharing an iconic nameplate with the reborn, sixth-generation Ford Bronco. However, things change quickly in the automotive world, and as Ford Authority previously reported, the 2025 Ford Bronco Sport is set to bring forth a few notable changes as part of a mid-cycle refresh. Back in early November, Ford Authority spotted what appeared to be a 2025 Ford Bronco Sport Badlands testing, giving us our first look at these updates. Now, Ford Authority has spotted the interior of a 2025 Ford Bronco Sport prototype for the first time, too.
There are a few notable updates present in this prototype, including – perhaps the biggest – what appears to be a 13.2-inch Sync 4 infotainment screen in the center, which could be the same unit present in the refreshed 2023 Ford Escape. It’s also possible that the 2025 Bronco Sport could get the same 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster used in the Escape, but it’s difficult to discern from these photos, so that tidbit of information is unclear at the moment.
It is worth noting that given the presence of this new, larger infotainment screen, it’s likely that the crossover’s physical climate controls will be eliminated, too. This is also the case with the 2023 Escape, which now features buttons in that same spot for things like the camera system and max defrost.
Another interesting takeaway from these photos pertains to the exterior – where we can see the presence of cameras in the side mirror, revealing that the refreshed Bronco Sport will be getting the 360-degree camera system, too. Otherwise, the 2025 Ford Bronco Sport is slated to receive some exterior styling updates at the front and rear, along with a hybrid powertrain option, as Ford Authority originally reported back in 2021.
