Are you a fan of the classics but appreciate modern advancements? Introducing the 2021 Ford Bronco. This classic vehicle received a well-deserved update and is known for its high-power performance, durability, and top-of-the-line technology. So, how does the Jeep Wrangler match up to the Bronco? Find out by reading our comparison guide.
The 2021 Bronco comes standard with a 2.3L turbo engine that is capable of outputting up to 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with AWD capabilities and a 7-speed manual transmission. However, if you need more from your powertrain, upgrade to the 2.7L V6 EcoBoost engine and 10-speed automatic to experience 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. In terms of handling, this beastly SUV can handle a variety of terrains, weather conditions, and can take well off of the beaten path. The 2021 Jeep Wrangler is equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine that can produce up to 285 horsepower and can be paired with a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic. The Jeep is also well-known for tackling rugged terrains.
The Bronco’s interior is fitted with premium materials, like durable leather, and advanced tech features that will please any adventurer. These features include a standard 8-inch or an available 12-inch Sync 4 system. This display offers Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM With 360L. The 2021 Jeep Wrangler offers a similar interior, however, it lacks the sophistication of the Bronco. In terms of technology, the Wrangler doesn’t offer much in terms of standard features. If you want what the Bronco offers, you’ll have to pay for it.
The 2021 Ford Bronco has yet to be tested by the NHTSA or the IIHS, but we have no doubt that it will test well when the time comes. The vehicle is designed with a high-strength body and offers the latest in airbag and seatbelt safety. The SUV also comes with a number of driver assistance features, including available forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and more. The 2021 Wrangler also has blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, and more.
There are some clear and distinct differences between these off-roaders. For starters, the Bronco offers better performance, a high-end interior, and intuitive technology. The Wrangler offers a hybrid engine option, but not much past that. Bottom line: If you’re looking for a vehicle that can easily handle wherever the wind takes you, the 2021 Ford Bronco was made for you.
