2023 Jeep Wrangler vs Ford Bronco
2023 Jeep Wrangler vs. Ford Bronco
When Ford announced that it would be bringing back the Bronco, there was no question about its target competition. An open-top, two and four-door configuration S.U.V. with aggressive good looks and impressive off-road capability, that’s the Jeep Wrangler all day. But now Ford was coming for the title of the off-road legion. So to help answer this debate, let’s compare side-by-side and see who gets to hold the crown of off-road king.
The Off-Road Worthiness of the 2023 Jeep Wrangler
Over eighty years of Jeep off-road evolution is rolled into the Wrangler. The Command-Trac Part-Time 4×4 system comes with a 2.72:1 low range for rock crawling and neutral for available flat towing, you can say yes to all kinds of adventure. Jeep’s full-time Selec-Trac 4×4 System automatically switches to two-wheel drive on clear roads for maximum efficiency or to four-wheel drive for continuous traction no matter the terrain. Finally, the Rock-Trac 4×4 System gives you more control and torque, offering impressive off-road performance with a 4:1 low-gear ratio that lets you crawl at a lower speed with a greater increase in torque at the wheels.
The Off-Road Worthiness of the 2023 Ford Bronco
The Bronco is an off-roader thanks to its 4-wheel drive, body-on-frame architecture ( just like the Wrangler), and decent approach, departure, and breakover angles. Its Terrain Management System with G.O.A.T. modes is a big part of what makes the Bronco ready for anything. Drivers can select the proper mode for the terrain, and the Bronco will change things like shift points, steering, and throttle to deliver the best experience. Like every Wrangler, the Bronco has critical undercarriage components, available bash plates to protect the fuel tank, engine/transmission, and transfer case shields.
Interior Featuers of the 2023 Jeep Wrangler
The 2-door Jeep Wrangler can accommodate four occupants, while there’s room for five in the 4-door configuration thanks to an extra little middle seat in the rear bench. Rear legroom in the 2-door is impressive at 35.7 inches and 38.3 inches on the four-door models. Cargo space is excellent at 12.9 with the back seats up and 31.7 cubic feet when you lay it flat for the 2-door models. You can opt for the four-door models with 31.7 to 72.4 cubic feet if you need more space.
Interior Features of the 2023 Ford Bronco
The Bronco’s interior design is practical. Ford copied the Wrangler’s design and rubberized the floor, and gave it drain plugs for easy rising. Some of the materials in the lower trims feel cheap compared to more upscale S.U.V.s. Like the Wrangler, the two-door Broncos seat four, and the 4-door Bronco seat five. The Bronco offers 65.2 cubic feet of cargo space. If you want to carry your gear securely, you must pay extra for the MOLLE panel system.
