Jeep Wrangler vs Ford Bronco

For Ford fans, the wait is finally over. Ford has finally released the newest version of the Bronco, and it comes with a few terrific engines and several fun off-road features. The inside of the cabin also has a ton of electronically advanced equipment, which is easy to use. While there is a lot to love about the Ford Bronco, it will have a lot to live up to if it's going to compete with the Jeep Wrangler. The Wrangler has long been the staple of off-road adventurers and this year's model comes with comfortable seats, a few engine options that include diesel, and tons of off-road and technologically advanced equipment. Both of these SUVs have their merits, but which one is better? For the answer, continue reading down below!

2020 Jeep Wrangler Power & Handling

The Wrangler comes with a ton of power that comes from a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine that pumps out 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The engine pairs wonderfully with either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. Both of these transmission provides you with a terrific ride both on and off the road. Optional is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that has 270 horsepower and an incredible 295 lb-ft of torque. Last but not least is a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that has 260 horsepower and an impressive 442 lb-ft of torque. Both of these engines pair with the eight-speed automatic transmission. Perhaps the best part of the Jeep Wrangler is the amount of four-wheel-drive systems it has, including a very sophisticated one for the Rubicon trim.

2021 Ford Bronco Power & Handling

A few engine options are available for the Ford Bronco, but unfortunately, there is a lack of a diesel option. The first option is a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. If you want a little more power for the Bronco, Ford gives you the option of a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 that has 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. The turbocharged four-cylinder comes with the choice of either a manual or automatic transmission, while the V6 comes with automatic transmission only. These are some good power numbers, but the lack of a diesel engine means that your torque numbers are a bit limited.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Features & Design

With three primary trims, several sub-trims, and three special editions, you're certainly spoiled for choice when it comes to the Jeep Wrangler. Kicking things off is the base Sport, which comes with 17-inch steel wheels, skid plates, tow hooks, a fold-down windshield, manual mirrors and locks, cruise control, push-button start, and a 5-inch touchscreen. Sport S versions add on to this with alloy wheels, air conditioning, automatic headlights, remote locking and unlocking, and heated power mirrors. From there, three special editions, known as the Black and Tan, the Willy's, and the Freedom, are available. These versions come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, all-terrain tires, limited-slip differential, and unique graphics packages. Are you looking for a little more off-road power? The Rubicon has you covered with heavy-duty axles with shorter gearing, 4.0-to-1 low-range gearing, and rock rails. You can also get leather upholstery on higher-level trims.

2021 Ford Bronco Features & Design

While the outside of the Bronco looks like an updated version from years past, inside the cabin has a decidedly modern feel thanks to the latest version of Ford's Sync system that has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as all the latest safety features. The Bronco comes with a few off-road specific features, including a nifty navigation system that works very well off-road as it provides you with a list of available trails that are close to you. There are even strategically placed cameras that take a lot of guesswork out of picking the best line on the path. Additional off-road features for the Bronco include a Trail Control that works like a low-speed Cruise Control System so you can focus on the direction rather than the speed of the Bronco. Also included is a Trail Turn Assist System, which allows the Bronco to make sharp turns on harsh surfaces.

Conclusion:

While we think the Ford Bronco will improve, we are going to give the victory to Jeep Wrangler. The Wrangler comes with more powerful engines, and there are more features. We also love the three different special editions, which adds even more features and unique design cues. Want to take a test drive of the Jeep Wrangler?
