The 2025 Ford Bronco Sport is preparing for a mid-cycle refresh, and it appears that there will be some significant upgrades. Recent sightings of camouflaged prototypes on public roads have revealed interesting details, suggesting that the compact SUV will undergo notable modifications.

The Bronco Sport shares its platform with the Ford Escape, which received a comprehensive update for the 2023 model year. One of the key updates for the Escape was the integration of a spacious 13.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system. It seems likely that the Bronco Sport will follow suit and feature this expansive display, equipped with Ford’s Sync 4 software. The touchscreen made its debut in the 2024 Mustang and will now make its way onto the Bronco Sport’s dashboard.

The new touchscreen is larger than the current 8.0-inch Sync 3 unit that is standard on all Bronco Sport trim levels. It is speculated that the smaller display may continue to be the standard option for lower-spec versions, similar to the setup in the Escape lineup.

In the Bronco Sport, the enlarged touchscreen will take up the space where the vertically oriented air vents are traditionally located. This suggests that the air vents will likely be relocated to a lower position on the center stack, possibly in a horizontal arrangement. The fate of the HVAC controls is still uncertain and further details are needed.

Currently, the Bronco Sport Badlands is the most off-road-oriented model in the lineup, featuring exclusive off-road hardware and Falken WildPeak all-terrain tires sized at 235/65R-17. However, recent spy shots of prototypes showed a different set of A/T tires, leading to speculation that Ford may introduce a new model or a special edition. These variants could potentially be named Everglades or Wildtrak and could occupy a position above the Badlands in the larger Ford Bronco lineup.

Interestingly, the prototypes were seen with Goodyear Wrangler Territory all-terrain tires, which are the same size as the WildPeak’s. The word “Wrangler” was conspicuously omitted from the sidewall, possibly to avoid drawing attention to the Bronco’s competitor, the Jeep Wrangler.

While Ford has not released any official information about the Bronco Sport’s makeover, it is expected that the changes will be unveiled in 2024, setting the stage for the 2025 model year. Enthusiasts and consumers are advised to stay tuned for further updates.
