Comparing The Jeep Wrangler
vs The Ford Bronco

Engine & Performance Comparison

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler is a four-wheel-drive SUV with a variety of engines available. The V6 engine is standard, but one can opt for a turbocharged four-cylinder, a V6 with mild hybrid assistance, or the diesel V6 that debuted in 2020. The standard 3.6-litre V6 engine generates 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. There is also an option for a 6.4-litre V8 engine in the Wrangler Rubicon 392 trim, delivering 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Therefore the Wrangler offers more engine choices, including diesel and hybrid options, pairing to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

On the other hand, the Ford Bronco comes in six trims based on their capabilities. The four-wheel-drive sole 2021 Bronco is available in two engines. The standard engine is a 2.3-litre turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder that produces 275 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. The optional engine is a 2.7-litre EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V6 that generates 400 lb-ft torque with 310 horsepower. Both engines are available with a ten-speed automatic or a seven-speed manual.

Off-Road Capabilities & Drivetrain Differences

These two vehicles are kind of similar in that they both possess high ground clearance and off-road superiority. The Bronco is an off-roading beast with features such as Trail control for low-speed off-roading, all-season and mud-terrain tires for off-roading grip, the Sasquatch package with all the off-roading essentials that can be added to any Bronco model. The Sasquatch package has 17-inch wheels wrapped with 35-inch mud-terrain tires, excellent shock absorbers. This package, however, is only limited to an automatic transmission.

The Wrangler also possesses special off-road features. These include 33-inch tires suitable for all-terrain, steel skid plates, an off-road button, and the Tru-Lok electronic locking differentials. The maximal angle a vehicle can drive over without its wheelbase getting scraped, otherwise termed as the break-over angle, the Wrangler has an edge with 25.0 degrees over the Bronco’s 21.1. The standard Wrangler beats the Bronco in ground clearance. They both offer a similar range for tires, with Jeep having an additional mud-terrain for the Rubicon trim. The Wrangler is somehow shorter in its wheelbase of 96.8 inches than the Bronco’s 100.4 inches.
