Can Ford Bronco challenge the dominance of the JEEP Wrangler?

Speaking of hardcore off-road vehicles, Jeep Wrangler has always been a very powerful product in the eyes of users. It is not only a very strong off-road car, but also stylish in terms of styling. Even at present, there is still no model on the market that can match the appearance of the Jeep Wrangler.

And Ford has also made great changes in its products in recent years, the most important of which is to reduce the product line of cars, focusing on SUVs and pickups. So Ford resurrected Bronco. And this model is also a hardcore off-road vehicle, which is a level model with Jeep Wrangler. So, which of these two cars is better or worse? In this article, let's compare it!

Appearance

The 2021 Ford Bronco has as many as 11 colors to choose from. It is huge, powerful and domineering, and its square shape all reveals a pure off-road temperament. The new Ford Bronco has launched a two-door and four-door version with disassembled doors, roofs, and is positioned as a hard-core off-road SUV. Drivers can automatically adjust height according to their interior level and configuration. The doors and roof doors are ingeniously designed and easy to disassemble by one person. After disassembling the doors on both sides, the wheels can be observed more intuitively, and getting on and off the car is more convenient.

We are very familiar with the 2021 Wrangler. Recently, the Wrangler also launched a hybrid version. The appearance is basically the same as the fuel version of the Wrangler. The side adopts a four-door layout. The classic seven-hole air intake grille and round LED headlights are still retained. It is matched with the square body and the external full-size spare tire. Has a high degree of recognition.

In terms of detachable doors, the two cars are very similar. The new Bronco and Wrangler both have detachable doors, but the methods used by the two manufacturers are different.

The doors of the Jeep Wrangler are high and support the rearview mirrors. Once you remove them, they are a bit difficult to move and store. The 2021 Ford Bronco is more prescient in this regard, using a frameless window design, and it is worth mentioning that the side mirrors of this car are not connected to the door, making the door very compact. This design makes the new model look a bit different, and it also gives the design of this car a sense of pretentiousness.

In fact, the owner of the 2021 Ford Bronco four-door version can completely put the disassembled door in the trunk, which is better than the 2021 Wrangler in terms of appearance and convenience. Although this may be a big selling point for the Ford Bronco in 2021, the so-called "magic height is one foot high, the road is one foot high". In response to this problem, the Wrangler said that it will be easier for the Wrangler to disassemble the car door than the Ford Bronco because the Wrangler uses the exposed Door hinges.

It can be seen that in appearance, these two cars are very domineering, which can satisfy the tough guy’s dream of off-road vehicles, but people may make a choice on the design of the door, whether it is a 2021 Ford. Bronco is also a Jeep Wrangler and has its own characteristics.

Interior

The interior layout of the 2021 Ford Bronco puts important controls in easy-to-reach places, and these controls are well laid out, clearly marked and intuitive. The central touch screen (8 inches or 12 inches in size, depending on the decoration level and equipment) uses a new generation of in-vehicle connected entertainment system-SYNC4. Thanks to its intuitive graphics and simple operation, it is very easy to grasp the hearts of users. Above the screen is a control device that Ford calls the "Hero Switch", which can be used for off-road functions, such as locking the front differential, locking the rear differential, traction steering assist, traction control, and hazard indicator lights. The center console did not choose manual four-wheel drive control, but used electronic control. The latter makes room for additional storage and additional features such as wireless charging pads. However, the interior of the 2021 Ford Bronco uses some cheap plastics, with obvious gaps and seams. These accessories somewhat reduce the high-end sense of this car, and make owners feel that the quality of this car is not so good.

In the interior of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler, the horizontal design of its own brand's classic "wings" style is applied to the mid-control design, and a large number of soft materials are used inside the body. The three multifunctional steering wheels of this car are the most eye-catching, demonstrating the infinite desire to conquer. The interior of the central control has also become more advanced, which is quite different from the plain interiors of general hardcore off-road vehicles. The 21 Jeep Wranglers are decorated with chrome, and the buttons have become compact and exquisite. The Wrangler itself is both male and female. Like the car model, this detail also illustrates this point, such a delicate interior will also capture the hearts of many girls, and from the perspective of the interior, it is also very in line with the needs of urban car people.

Both the 2021 Ford Bronco and the 2021 Jeep Wrangler are excellent off-road vehicles. Compared with other off-road SUVs on the market, each performance is superior, and they finally stand out. In terms of the above points, Ford Bronco and Wrangler performance is comparable.

However, these two cars have their own shortcomings. For example, the latest Ford Bronco is ahead of the Wrangler in terms of modern technology and has advantages in design. However, there are deficiencies in details such as finishes and material quality. Therefore, in daily use, Wrangler's detailed design can win the hearts of consumers.

But in terms of its space size, the Ford Bronco is also stronger, and its storage capacity is also higher than that of the Wrangler. Imagine a family going out in an off-road vehicle on weekends, and there is a car that can store a lot of luggage. Why not do it?
