Which is better, the Ford Bronco or the Jeep Wrangler? Today we pit these two pure SUVs still on the market to find out which is the better option.
Pure SUVs are disappearing. There are fewer and fewer customers who buy this type of vehicle, obsessed with the characteristics of SUVs and their versatility. However, some models are still marketed, a surviving minority that also has competition within its segment. Therefore, today we are going to try to answer this question: which is better, the Ford Bronco or the Jeep Wrangler?
Ford Bronco Spain, is it going to reach our market?
To face them, we will resort to one of our technical comparisons, where we are going to analyze aspects such as the dimensions, the load capacity of the trunk, the engines, its off-road capacity and the prices. At the end, we will draw some conclusions that will help you better know which is the best option.
The new Ford Bronco, which was recently revealed after more than two decades inactive, has returned as one of the benchmark SUVs in its segment, straight to the heart of its rival in this technical comparison. At the moment it will not be marketed in Europe, but in the United States it is already available for orders before it lands in dealerships in the spring of 2021.
How big is? The dimensions of the Ford 4x4 vary depending on the body option. If we choose the two-door version, we are facing a vehicle with a length of 4,412 mm, a width of 1,927 mm and a height of 1,826 mm, with a wheelbase of 2,550 mm. If, on the other hand, we choose the four-door option, the length increases to 4,810 m, the height to 1,852 mm and the wheelbase to 2,949 mm, with a similar width. At the moment the volumetric capacity of its trunk has not been disclosed.
The engines available in the new Bronco are two gasoline engines. The first is a 2.3 EcoBoost turbo petrol unit that delivers 270 horsepower and 420 Nm of torque, available with both a seven-speed manual transmission and a ten-speed automatic transmission. On the other hand, the 2.7-liter V6 engine delivers 310 hp and 542 Nm of torque. It is only available with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Both include a permanent all-wheel drive system.
In the engine section, we find both gasoline and diesel engines. The first are the 2.0 turbo with 270 hp and 400 Nm of torque, available only with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the diesel is the 200 hp 2.2 CRD four-cylinder, also available with an eight-speed automatic transmission. In the United States, a version with a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 285 hp is also marketed.

As for the off-road dimensions, the three-door version has an approach angle of 35.2 degrees, a breakover angle of 29.2 degrees and a departure angle of 29.2 degrees. On the other hand, the five-door version has an approach angle of 34.8 degrees, a breakover angle of 29.9 degrees and a departure angle of 19.2 degrees. Prices start at 51,100 euros for the three-door version, and 55,100 euros for the five-door. In the United States it starts from 23,710 euros.
As you have seen, there are important differences between the two 4x4s. The Ford Bronco is slightly larger in its three-door version, but the Jeep Wrangler is slightly larger in its five-door version. But the good news is, there are much more replacement parts for Jeep wrangler like Jeep JL switchback led turn signal
, led headlights, fog lights etc. There are also differences in terms of engines, since the Bronco is only available with gasoline engines and the Wrangler offers diesel engines as well. Off-road dimensions are slightly better on the Jeep, as are US prices. We will have to wait to know all the details of the Bronco when it lands in dealerships next year.
