5 Ways the Jeep Wrangler Beats the Ford Bronco

5 Ways the Jeep Wrangler Beats the Ford Bronco

Brought to you by National Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram

The Ford Bronco made it's big return recently after a multi-decade hiatus. The return of the Bronco has many folks wondering if the model is better than its direct competitor the Jeep Wrangler. While the Bronco was in retirement the Wrangler was here getting better year after year. Jeep spent the years listening to its fan base and making improvements Wrangler drivers have been asking for, which in turn means the Wrangler is leading against the Bronco in several major ways. Keep reading down below to learn about the five major ways the Wrangler is better than the Bronco!

Segment-Exclusive Solid Front Axle

If you're looking at the Wrangler, we're willing to bet you plan on doing some off-roading, whether it's every single weekend or if it's more casual. The Wrangler comes with a segment-exclusive soil front axle that is beloved by serious off-roaders far and wide. The solid front axle design has several advantages over the independent front suspension found in the Bronco. The solid front axle design is simpler and is rather inexpensive to modify. The solid axle is also more durable than independent front suspension systems. If the solid axle were to break in extreme off-road conditions, it is also a lot easier to repair than the independent front axle. The front differential has more stable ground clearance, and the solid axles provide more articulation.

The Windshield & Windows

While the Bronco claims to deliver an open-air experience, you can not lower the windshield on the Bronco. You can only remove the doors and roof. The Wrangler, on the other hand, allows you to fold down the windshield for true open-air freedom. The Wrangler also boasts a lower beltline for better visibility. The Wrangler's windows extend lower on than the Bronco's so you can see better what's on the trail or road around you.

Mirrors Stay with the Doors

When you take the doors off of the Bronco, the mirrors stay behind on the body of the vehicle. When you take the doors off of the Wrangler, however, the integrated mirrors come off along with it. If you're off-roading in a tight forest environment, you definitely don't want a set of mirrors on your vehicle, because they are just going to get knocked off and destroyed!

Jeep Wave Membership

We're sure everyone knows about the Jeep wave. The wave each and every Wrangler owner gives to a passing Jeep owner, but do you know about the Jeep Wave Membership. Every new Wrangler comes with a two-year membership to the Jeep Wave Program that includes a first-day rental allowance and $1,000 trip interruption coverage, complimentary maintenance, and more! You aren't going to find anything even close to similar for the Ford Bronco.

Powertrain Lineup

The Wrangler has a huge advantage over the Bronco thanks to its available EcoDiesel engine. The new EcoDiesel engine is a true torque master with a 442 lb-ft of torque output. If we're doing math, that is 10 percent more torque than is available with Ford's V6 engine that is available for the Bronco. The EcoDiesel comes paired with a TorqueFlite 8HP75 eight-speed automatic transmission that is calibrated for low RPM shifts. Each Wrangler model that comes with the EcoDiesel engine comes with third-generation Dana 44 front and rear heavy-duty axles and a 3.72 axle ratio.
