Jeep Wrangler vs Ford Bronco

The SUV world is about to be turned upside down with the release of the all-new Ford Bronco. The Bronco makes its much-anticipated return after a prolonged absence, and it comes with a powerful engine as well as all the bells and whistles you would expect from a high-end SUV. While there is certainly a lot to love about the Bronco, it has a lot to live up to if it's going to compete with the Jeep Wrangler. In 2020, Jeep is unveiling the latest version of its iconic rock crawler, and it comes with all the off-road prowess that you would expect, plus a few new surprises. So which one is better? For the answer, continue reading!

2020 Jeep Wrangler Power & Handling

Jeep has equipped the Wrangler with a few powerful engines in 2020. Standard is a 3.6-liter V6 that pumps out 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Optional is either a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque or the all-new 3.0-liter diesel engine that ups the torque output to 442. The V6 comes with your choice of a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, while the other engines match exclusively to the eight-speed automatic. Both the six-speed manual and the eight-speed automatic offer you a smooth ride. Additionally, Jeep has equipped each engine with a specific four-wheel-drive system, including a sophisticated one for the Wrangler Rubicon.

2020 Ford Bronco Power & Handling

There are two engines available for the Ford Bronco. The first is a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder that comes with 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. If you need a tad more power, the Bronco gives you the option of a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6, which ups the horsepower to 310. Both engines come with either manual or automatic transmission, which provides you with a smooth if unremarkable ride. These power numbers are undoubtedly excellent, but if you want to take your vehicle off-road, the Wrangler offers you several four-wheel-drive systems for that purpose.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Features & Design

If you have a powerful engine lineup, you're going to need spectacular features as well. Fortunately, the Jeep Wrangler has you covered with three trim levels and three special editions. Starting things off is the Sport which comes with underbody skid plates, fog lights, and push-button ignition, and a fold-down windshield. Inside the Sport provides you with an eight-speaker sound system. Unlimited versions provide drivers with additional rear seating. Sport S versions pile on the Sport with air conditioning, power windows, and keyless entry. Higher level trims of the Wrangler come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto configuration, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, power windows and locks, and several safety features such as blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-path detection, adaptive cruise control, and more! The Rubicon version gets you several off-road features such as special tires, heavy-duty axles with shorter gearing, and 4.0-to-1 low-range gearing. Three special editions are available, known as the Black and Tan, Willy's, and Freedom, which provide you with options such as larger brakes and specific graphics.

2020 Ford Bronco Features & Design

The all-new Ford Bronco bursts onto the scene with several terrific advancements. Inside the Bronco, you will find several technological advancements including easy to use buttons that can be used to control several things such as the front stabilizer bar, the rear and front differential lock, hazard lights, and electronic stability control. Higher-level trims of the Bronco provide consumers with the choice of the interior, such as durable cloth, vinyl, and leather seats, which are both heated and ventilated. Much like the Wrangler, the Bronco comes with removable doors and removable roof so you can feel the full outdoors. If you are looking to take your Bronco off-road, you can equip it with the Sasquatch package, which adds 35-inch tires, rear locking differentials, and Trail control. Unlike the Wrangler, this comes as a separate package that you have to order. On the Wrangler Rubicon, the off-road features come standard.

Conclusion:

There is plenty to like about both SUVs, but we are going to give the victory to the Jeep Wrangler. We love the powerful engines the Wrangler has, plus it has a diesel option that the Bronco does not. Also, on the Wrangler, all the off-road features come standard.
