One Try To Compare Ford Bronco With Jeep Wrangler


The market of reliable and trustworthy SUVs has a plenty of models. Ford Bronco and Jeep Wrangler have been holding its positions for years and new generation is on the way. So which model is better for you?

In general upcoming Ford Bronco hasn’t got certain dimensions yet but it will be a mid-size 4×4 SUV. Figuratively speaking it will be something between Bronco II and original Bronco. It will take care of those who need off-road experience. Jeep Wrangler is likely to stay 4×4 SUV with 2 or 4 doors and a removable top. Its overall length will be around 164.3 inches.

The sweet news is that Jeep’s new generation will retain its solid axles, the front and the rear one. The likelihood is that Bronco will get them too. The fact is that axle manufacturer Dana will be driveline supplier for the new models by Ford. Dana has confirmed that Bronco new generation will include axles based on AdvanTEK. It makes us believe that Bronco will still arrive with solid axles.

Design Differences

Naturally upcoming Bronco will inherit something from its original retro design. It means the vehicle will have a bulky frame with two huge round headlights. In general the car will be of a boxy type with a massive grille and brutal nature.

While Wrangler is said to stick to a taller grille including seven slots, it will also come with headlights of a round shape. Flared fenders are expected with a turn signal. The back end won’t be changed a lot for the sake of aerodynamics. For the same reason aluminum will be used reducing the weight f the car. Overall appearance will stay rather the same.

Interior Features

Bronco has a chance to win when it comes to the interior comparison. First of all, it’s rumored to include the upholstery of high quality and luxurious materials. As said, it will be more spacious inside providing comfort even during off-road rides. The possible introduction of the modern looking dashboard will provide a huge touchscreen. A big amount of cargo space is expected.

On the contrary, Wrangler focuses on plastic materials which are quite hard. It’s not about luxury but it’s easy to clean. It’s quite roomy at the front part but has much less space at the back part. At least the vehicle has controls of the audio, climate, and infotainment. Any active safety features are missing.

Specifications Particularities

Rumors about Ford Bronco’s engines are innumerable. One thing is for sure, it’s going to be offered with a small selection of powertrains. It will lower the price. One of the possible engines is a 1.5-litre turbocharged engine with inline 4 technologies. It will provide 180 horsepower and 200 lb-ft of torque. What’s more Ford Bronco may come with 2.3-litre EcoBoost unit which is good for delivering around 300 horsepower. Another possible (and most unlikely to be use) type is 5.0-litre V8 good for 361 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.

Wrangler has something in store as well. There’re not many options in consideration. It’s said that the vehicle will rely on 3.6-litre V-6 delivering 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. 6-speed manual transmission is expected to come. The vehicle is likely to be of AWD type.
