Jeep Wrangler vs Ford Bronco

There is now another SUV on the road that comes with a removable roof, removable doors, and comes in a two-door or four-door body style, but can it really compete with the legendary Jeep Wrangler? Well, that is precisely what we are going to find out today. Whether the new Ford Bronco really stands against the Jeep Wrangler.

Jeep Wrangler Power & Handling

Jeep is known far and wide for their legendary 4x4 systems, and the Wrangler is available with three of them. The standard 4x4 system for the lineup is the Command-Trac with a 2.72:1 low range ratio for towing and rock crawling. The Sahara model is available with the full-time Selec-Trac 4x4 system that switches from two-wheel to four-wheel depending on terrain. The Rubicon model then comes with the Rock-Trac 4x4 system with an electronic front sway bar disconnect, Tru-Lok electronic locking front and rear differentials, and a 4:1 low gear ratio. When it comes to engines, you have your choice between the 3.6L Pentastar V6 with or without eTorque technology, the 2.0L turbo engine with or without eTorque, and the new 3.0L EcoDiesel with 442 lb-ft of torque.

Ford Bronco Power & Handling

While Jeep offers three 4x4 systems for the Wrangler, Ford only offers two 4x4 systems for the Bronco. The standard 4x4 system is a part-time selectable engagement system with an electronic shift-on-the-fly two-speed transfer case. The optional 4x4 system for the lineup is the Advanced 4x4 - with automatic on-demand engagement. Ford also only offers two engine options for the Bronco. The first and standard is the 2.3L EcoBoost with 310 lb-ft of torque. The optional engine is the 2.7L EcoBoost with 400 lb-ft of torque that is only available with an automatic transmission.

Jeep Wrangler Features & Design

The Wrangler is available as the Sport, Sport S, Sahara, Rubicon, Rubicon Recon, and several special editions, including the Black and Tan, Willys, and Freedom edition. Within the lineup, you can find a whole slew of exceptional features including the available Off-Road Pages that can be found on your 8.4-inch touchscreen and includes off-road handy information like wheel articulation, suspension height settings, transmission temperature, and drive modes. The Wrangler is also available with the Trail Rail System, the Jeep Utility Grid, heated seats, the Sky One-Touch Power Top, a removable weather-resistant carpet floor with a drain plug, Nappa leather upholstery, 33-inch mud-terrain tires, navigation, and more.

Ford Bronco Features & Design

The unnamed base Bronco model is going to introduce you to the lineup with carpeted flooring, cloth seats, and 16-inch steel wheels. The Big Bend follows the base model with privacy glass, LED fog lamps, and a Carbonized Gray grille. Vinyl-trimmed seats, rubberized washout flooring, and a powder-coated steel bumper are all found on the Black Diamond model. The Out Banks model brings back the cloth upholstery but adds heated front seats, signature LED headlamps, and body-color door handles. On higher trim levels and within packages, you can find features such as an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a heated steering wheel, and navigation.

Conclusion:

We have to say we're underwhelmed with the Ford Bronco; we were expecting a lot more from the vehicles return to the market. We love the power and capability of the Jeep Wrangler that comes paired with exceptional off-road features like Off-Road Pages, a Trail Rail System, and washable floors, so you never have to worry about mud. If you're interested in taking the Jeep Wrangler out for a test drive, we hope you will come on down and see us here at St. Clair CDJR. You can find us at 1250 S Carney Dr in Saint Clair, MI.
