Jeep Wrangler vs Ford Bronco

The search for the perfect off-roading vehicle is here, which means the difficult decision has arrived on your doorstep. With so many models on the market today competing for superiority in the segment, it should be no surprise that this can be a tricky choice to make in the end. Here at Legacy CDJR, we want to make sure that getting yourself the best off-roader around has never been easier or simpler. That is why we've narrowed down the list to the Jeep Wrangler and the Ford Bronco. The first thing to note here is the extreme heritage that the Wrangler gives you, as it has been offering this vehicle for almost 80 years. Meanwhile, the Bronco is back after 25 years, and has to work hard to remake itself. We are here to go more in-depth on these machines and help you on the journey to your off-roading adventurer.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Power & Handling

The first thing we want to cover with the Jeep Wrangler is the kind of power that you will be able to get your hands on. Jeep is offering this vehicle with three different powertrains, meaning you have a great shot at getting the kind of configuration you have been looking for. The very first engine to look at is the base 3.6-liter V6, which can produce up to 260 pound-feet of torque and around 285 hp. Another engine to consider is a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, that creates 295 lb-ft of torque and around 270 hp. The final engine offered with the Wrangler is a turbodiesel 3.0-liter V6 that creates 442 lb-ft of torque and up to 260 horsepower. Those are some great engines that can really give you something special while on the trails.

2021 Ford Bronco Power & Handling

The Ford Bronco tries its best to keep up with everything that Jeep has been creating. However, it immediately falls flat with only two available engines, neither of which being diesel. The base engine is a 2.3-liter EcoBoost, which can generate 270 horsepower and around 310 pound-feet of torque. The other available engine is a 2.7-liter EcoBoost, which offers 400 pound-feet of torque and up to 310 horsepower. A seven-speed manual transmission is standard, with an optional ten-speed automatic transmission. While these aren't the worst engines, the overall lineup is disappointing.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Features & Design

Even after being impressed with what Jeep is giving the Wrangler to work with for an engine lineup, that isn't the only way that this SUV has been making a statement. The standard and optional features with a Wrangler have always been fun and exciting. Some standard features here include a Sunrider folding soft-top, a five-inch Uconnect display, and Command-Trac part-timed four-wheel drive. Optional features include power heated side mirrors, an electronically controlled disconnecting sway bar, automatic headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, a SiriusXM satellite radio, and all-terrain tires.

2021 Ford Bronco Features & Design

On the other side, Ford tries desperately to keep up with the Bronco. You'll find some standard features like six cupholders, a terrain management system, remote keyless access, and single-zone climate control. Some of the optional features include a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, a wireless charging pad, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, a 12-inch touchscreen, leather-trimmed seating, a ten-way power driver seat, and a heavy-duty modular front bumper


We know shopping around for your next vehicle can be different, but we believe that the argument here has been made in favor of the Wrangler. Whether you're looking at all of the power available, or the unique features you can find throughout, you can't go wrong with a Jeep.
