Ford’s New Bronco Sport Adds Off-Road Themed Black Diamond Package

 

Ford’s compact crossover has a new accessory pack for buyers who, for any reason, don’t want to buy the range-topper, offroad-oriented Badlands trim, or the bigger Bronco. Those who purchase any Bronco Sport are also eligible to the brand’s offroad school.

 

 

The name does make it seem to be another marketing trick to sell stickers, plaques, and brake calipers, but this one’s slightly more dedicated to what it wants to achieve. For starters, it gets 17-inch gray aluminum wheels unique to this package paired with all-terrains, and four bash plates to cover the crucial parts of the underbody, like the fuel tank. As you would expect, the front also gets one. There’s special decals that spell out the model name and trim on the sides, with a small horse decal on the hood.

 

 

But what’s the use of buying an offroad-oriented kit when you have zero knowledge of traversing on tougher terrain? That’s why Ford is offering the Bronco Off-Roadeo program. Available for anyone who got themselves a Bronco Sport, it’s held in select places of the US, where owners can learn about driving on uneven grounds within the capability of their SUV. Ford states that nearly 90% of Bronco Sport owners who graduated the Off-Roadeo program “are likely to go off-roading again, and 97 percent of customers are more knowledgeable and confident doing so, furthering our goal of getting into the wild.”

 

 

It’s strange to picture anyone with a Bronco Sport and not an actual Bronco going off-roading, knowing how it was meant to be the comfort-oriented version of its bigger brother. Still, it’s good to know that some people still show interest in the hobby.
