2021 Jeep Wrangler vs 2021 Ford Bronco

Who Drives it Better? Comparing the 2021 Jeep Wrangler to the 2021 Ford Bronco

The classic Jeep Wrangler has always been Santa Monica's go-to SUV for off-roading. Suddenly, Ford has come out with the full redesigned 2021 Ford Bronco that is also made for the bumpy roads. Both SUVs have a lot in common and both have the power and capabilities to take you for an adventure.

But, how do you know which one is a better fit for you? Even with those similarities, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler still comes out on top with some key features.


Engine Performance

A powerful engine in an off-roading vehicle is essential to get you over any type of surface. The Ford Bronco Sport only has two engine options, while the Jeep Wrangler has four engine options. More engine options give you a better opportunity to get the power you need. Here are the Jeep Wrangler engine options:

  • Standard 3.6L V6 engine with 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque
  • 2.0L four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque
  • 3.0L diesel V6 engine with 260 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque
  • 6.4L V8 engine with 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque

Because of these engines, if you want to tow your boat for a fun day at the Santa Monica State Beach, the Jeep Wrangler can do it better. The horsepower on the standard engine is more powerful than the Ford Bronco's standard engine. The Jeep Wrangler is also the only one that has a diesel engine option. There is also a plug-in hybrid option to the Jeep Wrangler if you are looking to be "green" while still adventuring.

Interior Space and Features

There are more interior cargo spaces and seat configurations in the Jeep Wrangler than in the Ford Bronco. There is a secret storage space in the cargo floor. The second-row seats can fold down into the floor completely for more space in the cabin. There are also six tie-down points within the cabin. This is not available on the Ford Bronco.

The Jeep Wrangler has more technology options than the Ford Bronco. You can connect your Jeep Wrangler to your Amazon Alexa for more updates on your vehicle. Using this feature, Alexa can send directions to the navigation system, start the engine, and start the A/C during the hot Santa Monica summers. Or you can use your Alexa to get service updates on your vehicle like fuel levels and tire pressure. This feature is not available on the Ford Bronco.

Safety and Security Features

Safety features are important in any vehicle, but especially in a vehicle that you are going to take off-roading. You need to feel safe on roads that are not paved or cleared of debris. Being able to see out your windows and having fewer blind spots is important so you know you are not about to drive into a tree or are too close to a cliff. The Jeep Wrangler's more oversized side windows and tapered hood give you better visibility where you do not have to rely on a camera for safety, like on the Ford Bronco.

But, you are also going to take your vehicle on regular roads for your normal, day-to-day life, and you need to be sure that you and your passengers are going to be safe on those roads as well. While both vehicles have advanced safety features, but the Jeep Wrangler has more. Some of these advanced safety features are:

  • Parkview® rear back up camera
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Forward collision mitigation
  • Blind spot monitoring
  • Automatic high-beam headlamps
