Boy there sure is a lot of bronco sports popping up this week! I think I’ve seen four or five of them? And they’re all black!
Looks like all the Youngins! are getting those!

I had someone text me a picture of one.
Fortunately they said, why does this look much smaller than what you showed me.
So then I had to explain to them the difference.

I feel like an ambassador for the big Bronco versus the baby Bronco (sport). I’ve had friends ask if I saw the Bronco and why am I waiting for such a small car? I had to explain it to my girlfriend multiple times that we are getting the ‘real’ Bronco. Even pictures from a dealer event recently did not sink in explaining the difference.

personally I think Ford hurt the brand with the sport.

I've only seen two.

I test drove one today. To be honest, I hated it. The front was huge -- I felt like I was driving a much larger vehicle. Gosh I hope the front end of the two door Big Bronco isn't like that.

Sport is a good looking and highly capable little car, once the big ones show up, they will enhance the brand, not hurt if.

They are all over the beach city’s in So Cal. It’s given me a good chance to look at colors..👍

Seen several over last couple months here in north Denver area. Denver Int’l Airport also has them in their rental car fleets already (not sure on which rental company though).

They definitely hurt the real bronco's image with the sport.

But the name is the biggest selling point of the sport for many people, and IMO Ford was planning on the Sport being the volume seller.

I too have had a lot of people ask me why I'm waiting after they've seen one of the half a dozen sports running around town. This picture does a decent job of making them say "Oh wow, now I understand"

So I saw one last week on the highway that was Cactus Green. Looked completely different then all the pics on this site. I need to see A51 and Rapid Red in person.

People will get the difference in a few years. When you say Jeep they don't think Cherokee. The Bronco has been away for 25 years. Even those that haven't ordered one are actually excited and they see the Sport thinking they've seen one. As the Bronco actually starts getting out there, people will begin to realize what the Bronco is.

Ford’s April Sales Report, released this morning, included this highlight in the SUV category...

Also keep in mind Ford is marketing the heck out of them. I'm tired of the commercials. Btw, I've only seen 2 in the wild since release which I thought was interesting considering all the marketing.

This is probably the best way of putting it that I’ve seen so far.

I know! I keep getting texts and pictures from my friends saying
“That’s the Bronco you want?!”

I’m like no!.....That’s not the REAL one!
(Although it is kinda cute!)

Good old Ford confuses the hell out of everybody!!

No don't worry it's much bigger.
