Jeep Wrangler vs Ford Bronco

After a decades-long absence from the scene, the Ford Bronco is finally back, but can it really stand up against the reigning champ of the off-road the Jeep Wrangler? Well, we're about to find out! Down below, we're going to take a look at the powertrain, drivetrains, and features that come with each off-roader to find out which SUV is truly king.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Power & Handling

Jeep allows you to pick from three different 4x4 systems so you can get the drivetrain that is perfect for your lifestyle. There is the full-time Selec-Trac 4x4, the Command-Trac 4x4 system with a 2.72:1 low range, and a Rock-Trac 4x4 system with a 4:1 low gear ratio. Jeep also offers three powertrains for the Wrangler. There is the standard 3.6L Pentastar V6 with or without eTorque technology that makes 285 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque. Then there is the optional 2.0L Turbo with 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, which also comes with or without eTorque. Lastly, there is the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 with 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque.

2021 Ford Bronco Power & Handling

When it comes to drivetrain options, the Ford Bronco has two you can choose from. There is the standard 4x4 with part-time selectable engagement with Neutral, 4H, and 4L drive modes. Then there is the Advanced 4x4 system with automatic on-demand engagement with a two-speed electromechanical transfer case. When it comes to powertrain, you also have two to choose from. The standard 4-cylinder 2.3L EcoBoost engine is available with a manual or automatic transmission and the available 2.7L Ecoboost engine with an automatic transmission. The Bronco has a standard approach angle of 35.5-degrees, but optional 35-inch tires can increase that number to 43.2-degree, which is still less than the Wranglers standard approach angle.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Features & Design

Jeep offers an abundant amount of models and special editions for the Wrangler including the Sahara, Rubicon, Rubicon Recon, Freedom, Willys, and Sahara Altitude. The Sport model starts off with a fold-down windshield, removable doors, an easy-to-use Zipperless Sunrider soft top, cruise control, and more. On the higher-level models, you can get leather upholstery, heated seats, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a heated steering wheel, forward collision warning, rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, Sky One-Touch power top, Tru-Lok® Electronic Locking Differential, Electronic Sway Bar Disconnect, and steel bumpers.

2021 Ford Bronco Features & Design

When it comes to features, the Bronco starts things off with cloth seats, cloth carpeting, removable doors, all-season tires, and a removable roof. The Big Bend model then adds privacy glass, a carbonized Gray grille, LED fog lamps, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. With higher models, you can get an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated seats, ambient footwell lighting, navigation, leather upholstery, rubberized washout flooring, and blind-spot monitoring.

Conclusion:

We thought the Ford Bronco was going to put up more of a fight, but if we're honest, it left us feeling disappointed. The Wrangler offers more powertrains and drivetrain options than the Bronco, and who can forget the Bronco doesn't even come with a diesel engine. We also love the features the Wrangler has to offer, like the Sky One-Touch Power Top that allows you to open or close your roof with the push of a button at speeds up to 60 mph! If you want to take a Jeep Wrangler out for a spin, we hope you'll come on down and see us here at Dave Smith Motors in Kellogg, ID!
