Over 500,000 Ford Edge, Lincoln MKX crossovers affected

The 2015-2018 Ford Edge and 2016-2018 Lincoln MKX crossover SUVs will be recalled for a brake hose leak that could increase the risk of a crash, Ford announced Wednesday. 

The front brake hose could rupture in affected vehicles, causing a brake fluid leak. If the brake fluid level falls below a safe threshold, a brake fluid warning light should illuminate in the instrument cluster. Drivers may notice more brake pedal travel, or that it takes more effort to brake without as much response. The car may not brake as quickly or effectively, increasing the risk of crash.

2021 Ford Bronco Sport

The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport and 2020 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk likely don’t mind being overshadowed by attention-grabbing siblings in their respective lineups. They’ll crawl into the limelight themselves.

That’s because the smaller siblings of the Bronco and Wrangler, respectively, are bona fide off-roaders in their own rights. Both feature impressive trail-ready hardware and road-friendly suspension setups that speak to our sensibilities. We’re more inclined to clamber into parking spaces than steep trails, after all.

We’re enamored by both, but without driving the Bronco Sport yet, we’re left to compare the two on paper. The 2020 Jeep

2021 Ford Bronco vs. 2021 Ford Bronco Sport: Compare SUVs

2021 Ford Bronco family

With the new Bronco, Ford resurrected one of its iconic brands from more than two decades ago now. It was so nice that Ford did it twice.

The 2021 Ford Bronco and 2021 Bronco Sport are a pair of off-road SUVs with two different missions.

Both start for less than $30,000—and in base trims are comparably priced.

We haven’t yet driven either model and will
