2024 Ford Bronco Sport Freewheeling Modernizes A Classic

By Jerry Robbin

The 2024 Ford Bronco Sport Free Wheeling adds a modern take on the Bronco Heritage from the past.

Ford adds a brand-new model to its expanding line up – the Bronco Sport Free Wheeling, which is based on the Big Bend model.

This special edition comes with sunset-inspired design touches, featuring four-color reflective exterior graphics that pay homage to the stylish Ford off-roaders from the 1970s.
Along with all-wheel drive, a 181-hp turbo-charged three-cylinder engine is standard and this setup returns an impressive 33 mpg highway mileage.
