Smaller Version of Ford Bronco on Horizon: Looking Forward to All-New SUV

There's a new SUV on the way from Ford, and it's shaping up to be a smaller, unibody companion to the upcoming 2021 Ford Bronco.

They hype around the upcoming reveal of the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco has aimed intense media attention on the brand. Enthusiasts across the board are excited to find out more about the return of an off-road icon, after all. But that's not the only new SUV that Ford is planning to unveil this year.

Along with the brawny, body-on-frame Bronco, Ford has been developing a smaller unibody SUV with similar all-terrain aspirations as its larger counterpart. The SUV, widely believed to be named the Bronco Sport, will give enthusiasts yet another exciting option to consider from Ford.

Ford hasn't revealed much about the new model. As with the full-size Bronco, Ford has been tight-lipped regarding the development and design of the smaller SUV. However, there are a few details that fans have gleaned.

First and foremost, the new SUV will ride on the same platform as the all-new 2020 Ford Escape. Unlike the full-size Bronco, this model will feature unibody construction and independent suspension. The advantage of this setup over traditional body on frame is lighter overall weight, better on-road handling, and a smoother ride quality. It may not offer the same old-school ruggedness as the full-size Bronco, but the Bronco Sport should strike a balance between all-terrain confidence and on-road comfort.

Despite sharing underpinnings with the 2020 Escape, the Bronco's smaller companion will certainly offer rugged styling that caters to enthusiasts. It's aligned with its larger off-road counterpart, so you can expect some brawny looks.

We're expecting the new Bronco Sport to debut this spring, so keep an eye out for new updates and details to be revealed.
