Clash of the Titans: 2021 Ford Bronco vs 2021 Jeep Wrangler
We offer you to compare the new Ford Bronco 2021 to the legendary Jeep Wrangler 2021 which you can see and try at the Jeep Granby Chrysler dealership , which offers an exceptional choice of Jeep SUVs .
The great story of the Jeep Wrangler
The Wrangler is the successor to the famous Jeep , the 4-wheel-drive all-terrain vehicle used by the US military in World War II. Robust and versatile, the Jeep has faced all climates, from the jungles of the Philippines, to the beaches of Normandy, through the Sahara desert and the snow-capped passes of the Alps.
As early as 1945, the Willys Company, which manufactured the military Jeep , began producing vehicles for the civilian market. The Wrangler model debuted in 1987. Since then, the Jeep Wrangler has been recognized as one of the best off-road vehicles on the market.
What about the Ford Bronco?
By launching the civilian version of the Jeep , Willys literally invented the recreational vehicle market. In 1966, Ford noticing that the popularity of recreational 4x4s grew year after year, Ford launched the Bronco , a small square 4x4, fairly rudimentary with a standard 6-cylinder engine of only 105 hp.
Wrangler vs Bronco - Models and MSRP
In addition, in 2021, the Wrangler marks the 80th anniversary of the Jeep brand by being available in 16 models while the Bronco is satisfied with 6 versions.
Not only does the 2021 Wrangler offer almost 3 times more models than the Ford Bronco, it offers them at a better price! Indeed, while the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler Sport is only $ 34,766, that of the 2021 Ford Bronco Base is $ 40,499.
Wrangler vs Bronco - engines
The 2021 Bronco offers only 2 engines .; The 2.3L EcoBoost which produces 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, and the 2.7L EcoBoost which develops 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
For its part, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler offers 4 engines that deploy powers from 270 to 285 hp, torques ranging from 260 to 442 lb-ft and towing capacities ranging from 907 kg (2000 lb) to 1,588 kg (3,500 lb).
These engines include the 2 versions (with or without stop / start) of the 3.6L Pentastar VVT V6, the 2.0L Turbo and the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 with stop / start technology.
The 4x4 traction of the Jeep Wrangler 2021
The new 2021 Wrangler can be equipped with a wide variety of 4x4 traction. For example, the Rubicon is equipped with a Rock-Trac 4x4 system, heavy-duty Dana 44 axles, 33-inch all-terrain tires and Off-Road + mode.
All versions of the 2021 Wrangler feature the Trail -Rated emblem which demonstrates that their off-road capabilities have been tested and proven.
Full opening to the nature of the Wrangler
While the 2021 Bronco also offers a removable hardtop and soft top as well as removable doors, the new Wrangler offers the choice between the Sunrider soft top, the 3-section Freedom top hardtop and the power-operated Sky One-Touch roof.
Note that the Wrangler is the only all-terrain 4x4 with the windshield folded down. Once its 4 doors have been removed, the Wrangler opens completely to the exhilarating effect of the free outdoors!
Unique and avant-garde: - the electric Wrangler
Note that Wrangler is also launching its electric version this year, the Wrangler 4XExe 2021 . Its 375 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque and low emissions leave the Bronco far behind when it comes to innovation and forward thinking!
Soon the Wrangler Rubicon 392
Finally, it is in early 2021 that the new Wrangler Rubicon 392 should enter the Canadian market. Its 6.4L HEMI V8 engine will spit out 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. This Wrangler will spin from 0 to 100 km in 4.5 seconds, totally dominating the best-equipped version of the 2021 Bronco .
Wrangler 2021, still a winner!
When comparing the Jeep vs the Ford , it undeniably appears that the aspiring Bronco 2021 fails to dethrone the Wrangler from the top step of the podium!
