I just went to the new 2021 Bronco build & price feature on the Ford website.

So, they want me to pay nearly 30 grand for a base model Bronco Sport, and my one and only engine choice is a blasted THREE cylinder 1.5-liter?? Really???

Now, I can (almost) see only 4 color choices, and only one interior choice (color AND material), but sorry folks, I just can't bring myself to buy a little three-banger. It brings back memories of Geo Metros and the like.

C'mon Ford, don't force everybody to buy up, and up, and up to get something worth having.

There, done venting.

And you know it can’t shut one off as needed and become a TWO cylinder right? I’m a little surprised they don’t offer the bigger engine on models other than the Badlands and First Edition. But then again, it doesn’t matter to me because I have a loaded Badlands Sport on order. [emoticon]

I liked my Geo Metro with the 1.0 3 banger. Cruise control with skiies on top was to just keep the peddle on the floor for maybe 70/75 mph. Solid 50 mpg no matter how you drove it. 240,000 mostly trouble free miles.

Does Bronco tow four down?

Sadly the Bronco Sport does not tow four down. Since I downsized to a B I don’t tow any more or I would have been bummed.

When I go to the ford build and price, the 2021 bronco can be ordered with two engines 2.3L and 2.7L.

That is because you are looking at the Bronco 2/4 door and not the Bronco Sport that the OP referenced. Different animals.
