Ford Bronco Sport

The most common trim package you’ll see on an early Bronco is the Sport. It was offered starting in 1967 so had a longer run then the other trim packages like the Bronco Ranger and Bronco Explorer. Think of the Sport as the base package that other trim packages used to add on to. The true “base” of course was no trim package at all, but the Sport was the most common.
The Sport was an aesthetic package and had nothing to do with performance. It consisted of a lot of “bright” parts, which is what Ford literature used to describe chrome.

Is the Bronco Sport a v6?
The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport comes complete with a turbocharged 1.5-liter Eco Boost three-cylinder engine that pumps out 181 horsepower. You will also find this powertrain on the 2020 Ford Escape.

2021 Ford Bronco owners are in for more power if they want it — the key being if. According to a spec sheet leaked to the Bronco 6G forum this past Friday, both the turbo-four and twin-turbo V6 will make an extra 30 horsepower more than we first thought. The asterisk is you need to fill the tank with premium fuel.

2021 Bronco makes more HP than expected, but there’s a catch

Want more power? You’ll need to select premium fuel.

If you go with standard 87 octane, you’ll still get the as-advertised 270 horsepower with the 2.3-liter turbo-four, and 300 hp with the twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6. Filling up with premium-grade fuel, however, returns 300 hp and 330 hp, respectively, according to this spec sheet. Torque also improves from 310 and 400 lb-ft for the turbo-four and twin-turbo V6 to 325 and 415 lb-ft, respectively. Ford did not immediately return a request for comment on the updated specs.

Sadly, the documents don’t hide any other secrets, such as the availability of the seven-speed manual transmission for the V6. It still remains an exclusive option for the turbo-four engine. Despite production idling at Ford’s plant where it will soon build the Bronco, Ford told Roadshow previously the Bronco remains on schedule to launch this summer. When it does, enjoy a little more oomph with the right fuel in the tank.
