Lifted Bronco Sport – Is it a Real Bronco?

The Bronco Sport isn't even a "real" Bronco... A lot of folks have been skeptical about the off-road capabilities of Ford's new Bronco Sport. I'll be the first to admit, I was a skeptic myself - was. That's until I got the opportunity to experience the Bronco Sport...
