Sat in one at a dealership. It didn’t scream out, “let’s go do Moab.” Rather, it screamed out, “I hope they have that coffee I like at the farmer’s market.”
it screams — I was told to buy a bronco but I didn’t know what that meant so jokes on me . Everyone laugh. It’s ok though because I won’t understand

The Sport is definitely better than the Escape. And, after all, the Sport is really just a modified Escape. As already mentioned, it's a competitor to the Compass, Chevy Equinox, RAV4, that sort of thing.

saw one yesterday... and gave me the bronco wave ... if u don't know ..this, a middle finger. The guy was very livid about showing it to me for what seemed as an eternity . I wasn't feeling childish enough to reflect on it. But it would seem he might have been jealous of my big solid axle.

My daughter was looking for a car recently and we test drove a couple of sports. Drove nice and seamed like a nice little vehicle. Dealer wanted $2k over the sticker price on the window. She passed on it.

If I was waiting to see a new Wrangler and saw a Cherokee out in the streets, I wouldn't be impressed either.

I think the Bronco Sports look good for that category of vehicle, but it's not something I'm excited about.

I think it is great for its segment and will be a gateway vehicle for the full Bronco. Might compete with a Subaru?

i think it will sell more units than the full Bronco in the long run.

It is a great vehicle for its segment. One id take a serious look at if that was the segment I was shopping in. There’s just so many insecure Jeep people on this board who are overconfident in their ability to tell the difference between two very different vehicles 😂
