Ford Bronco vs Jeep Wrangler


Now that the Ford Bronco has returned to circulation around West Point, King William, and Williamsburg, many are wondered how the SUV will stack up against previous segment leaders. The Jeep Wrangler has long been a heralded, outdoorsy SUV, so this 2021 Ford Bronco vs. Jeep Wrangler comparison should provide insight on how the two models do when pitted against one another.

Off-roading exploration is at the root of the Wrangler and the Bronco, yet there are other traits in play you'll want to keep an eye on. At West Point Ford, we can follow up this comparison with a test drive!


Engine Performance

With plenty of adventures ahead, you're going to want an SUV with the power to get you where you're going. While Jeep offers twice as many engines for the Wrangler as you'll find in the 2021 Ford Bronco, the Bronco is the one that offers a more compelling blend of power.

The base Bronco motor is a 4-cylinder making 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. There's also a 6-cylinder alternative making 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. For the Wrangler, there's a diesel motor making 442 lb-ft of torque. However, none of the available four motors from Jeep tops 300 horsepower, leaving the Wrangler at a power disadvantage.


Unique Off-Roading Equipment

Going through the entire list of off-roading technology and equipment for the 2021 Ford Bronco and Jeep Wrangler isn't plausible. Each SUV comes outfitted with such an extensive list of features and advantages that it would take a much longer article to hit on them all. What's important is where the SUVs differ.

For 2021, the Ford Bronco is introducing a unique Trail 1-Pedal Drive system, which is meant to instill confidence on uneven terrain. The 1-Pedal system engages during low-speed crawling maneuvers. Essentially, your vehicle will brake as soon as you begin to ease up on the gas pedal, making the brake pedal unnecessary. This streamlined experience behind the wheel gives you more time to focus on obstacles ahead.

While advanced, the Jeep Wrangler doesn't provide a system as intuitive as the Ford Trail 1-Pedal Drive arrangement.


Maximum Interior Cargo Volume

Both the 2021 Ford Bronco and Jeep Wrangler come in two-door or four-door setups. However, the proportions of each model are wildly different, a point best illustrated by their cargo capacities.

For the Wrangler, your maximum cargo volume in the four-door configuration is going to peak around 72.4 cubic feet. With the Bronco, however, you can enjoy as much as 77.6 cubic feet of total cargo capacity!
