Jeep Wrangler vs Ford Bronco

The SUV world is about to get a shakeup with the introduction of the all-new Ford Bronco. The Bronco is back after a prolonged absence, and it means business with a couple of powerful engine options and several fun features. Though this return has been highly anticipated, the Bronco has a lot to live up to if it's going to compete with the Jeep Wrangler. The Wrangler continues to be the darling of off-road enthusiasts as it has several powerful engines, including a diesel option. Inside the cabin, you'll find all the latest technological improvements as the Wrangler continues to keep up with the trends. Two amazing SUVs enter, only one will come out on top. Who will win? Keep reading to find out!

2020 Jeep Wrangler Power & Handling

The all-new Jeep Wrangler comes with three incredible engines, including a diesel option. Coming standard is a 3.6-liter V6 that has 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The engine pairs with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, both of which offer you a smooth ride. The first option is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that has 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque and pairs exclusively to the eight-speed automatic. All-new to the Wrangler this year is a 3.0-liter turbodiesel with its astonishing 442 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the Wrangler comes with a few four-wheel-drive systems, including a sophisticated one for the Rubicon.

2021 Ford Bronco Power & Handling

There are a couple of engines available for the Ford Bronco, but unfortunately, neither are as good as what the Wrangler offers. Starting things off is a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder that pumps out 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. If you need a little more power, the Bronco offers a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6 with 310 horses and 400 lb-ft of torque. The turbocharged four-cylinder pairs with either a manual or automatic transmission, while the twin-turbo is automatic transmission only. While these power numbers are not bad, the Bronco does not have a diesel option, so torque is a tad lacking.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Features & Design

With three primary trim levels, a few sub-trims, and three special editions, you are sure to get your money's worth with the Jeep Wrangler. Kicking things off is the Sport trim, 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 include alloy wheels, air conditioning, automatic headlights, remote locking and unlocking, heated power mirrors, and much, much more! From here, there are three special editions available. These include the Black and Tan, Willy's, and Freedom. Features for these special editions include all-terrain tires, limited-slip differential, unique graphics packages, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Higher-level trims of the Wrangler include leather upholstery, and off-road features such as heavy-duty axles with shorter gearing, 4.0-to-1 low-range gearing, and rock rails.

2021 Ford Bronco Features & Design

Ford has improved the look and feel of the Broncos cabin as it looks more retro thanks to a broad horizontal dash inside the cabin. Further adding to the look and feel are strategically placed grab handles that passengers can grab when taking the Bronco off the beaten path. These handles are removable as are the doors no matter what trim level you choose. Inside the cabin, the Bronco comes with a few terrific tech features such as the latest Ford Sync system that comes with all the latest applications, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. On the trail, the Bronco offers up a navigation system to help you locate the best path. Speaking of being on the trail, the Bronco throws in Trail Control, which acts like a low-speed cruise control when you're on particularly challenging trails. Also, the Trail Turn Assist helps you steer your Bronco when on a challenging trail. These are some exciting features, but the Wrangler offers you more.

Conclusion:

While we think the Bronco will improve in the coming years, we are going to give the victory to the Jeep Wrangler. The diesel engine provides you with the torque you need on the trails, and the massive amount of features are some of the best we've ever seen on an SUV. Are you interested in the Jeep Wrangler? Then we suggest heading to San Marcos Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM and taking a test drive with one of our sales representatives. If you can't make it down to the dealership, don't fret!
