Jeep Wrangler and Ford Bronco

Jeep Wrangler vs. Ford Bronco

Here’s another head-to-head comparison of two popular, off-road powerhouses: Jeep Wrangler versus Ford Bronco. These two are both a lot of fun and can handle harsh terrain that you just can’t go after with a low-riding sedan. This analysis will show you what we think of these vehicles across a few relevant driving variables.

Power & Towing
  • We notice that both the Wrangler and Bronco have massive towing potential: a whopping 3,500 lbs worth. However, when we move over to raw horsepower, the Wrangler becomes the superior choice. Its 470 hp trumps the Bronco’s 310 hp rather easily. Also, for engine prowess, you get three drivetrain options with the Wrangler versus only two with the Bronco.

  • Versatility
  • The Jeep Wrangler beats all the competition with its versatility. This is true whether you’re considering its exterior adjustments, or eco-friendliness. Two of the Wranglers engine options utilize the outstanding EcoBoost technology. It also has a solid array of interior tech features like larger touchscreens, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities, and more.
  • While both the Wrangler and Bronco have open-air potential with removable roofs and doors, the former also allows you to adjust the windshield for even more exposure on scenic trails.

  • Off-Road Performance
  • The Wrangler and Bronco both have their premium trims (the Rubicon and Wildtrak respectively) that really showcase their off-roading potential. Both have excellent front/rear locking differentials, high-performance suspension, protective underbody skid plates, and handy cruise control settings.
  • The Rubicon lets you get into more difficult terrain thanks to its 4:1 low gear ratio. It’s also the only trim to equip the handy Electronic Front Sway Bar Disconnect feature. This is a big deal on tough trails since it lets you disconnect the sway bar to allow full wheel compression.
  • Once again, it looks like the scales lean in favor of the classic, yet ever-evolving Jeep Wrangler. It’s a tough model to beat, especially its Rubicon Trim, which you can find plenty of when you check out our fantastic new and used selections
