Which is the Right SUV for You?
Jeep Wrangler
VERSATILITY

If you’re looking for the power of choice, you’ll get it with the Jeep Wrangler. This adventurous SUV sports various engines so you can add as much pep as you need for your early-morning trail treks or weekly water fording fun. Plus, with extended open-air freedom in the Wrangler, we hope you’re not afraid of a little dust, dirt, water, and mud. You’re about to experience your adventure from all fronts.

Jeep Wrangler
Let the Battle Begin

It offers three engines, so you can power your journey the way you see fit. The Bronco, on the other hand, only gives you the option of two EcoBoost® engines.

You’ll be able to stay in touch whether you’re right around the corner or way off the grid. Both SUVs come with very similar infotainment systems to keep you connected on the go. They could come equipped with:

  • Touchscreen display
  • Bluetooth®
  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™
  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hot Spot

Feel the Breeze

There’s nothing quite like an open-air SUV. You can feel the splash of the mud, a crisp morning breeze, and the warmth of the afternoon sun. The Wrangler and the Bronco each offer a removable roof as well as removable doors, but the Wrangler also lets you lower the windshield, so you can enjoy an unobstructed view of all Mother Nature provides.

CAPABILITY

If you think the showdown between the Jeep Wrangler and the Ford Bronco is intense, it only gets more heated when their two most off-road-ready trim levels go head-to-head.

The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and the Ford Bronco Wildtrak are not for the faint of heart. These two models will tackle all adventures and answer your soul’s call to the wild. However, with an enhanced suspension system on board the Rubicon, you can take your adventure far beyond the Wildtrak’s limits.

Jeep Wrangler
Rubicon vs. Wildtrak

The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and the Ford Bronco Wildtrak share the following all-terrain performance features:

  • Front and rear locking differentials
  • Trail cruise control
  • High-performance suspension
  • Underbody skid plates

The Wildtrak may come with an Advanced 4x4 that’s more tuned for off-road conditions, but it’s nothing compared to the decades of off-road knowledge that’s gone into the Rock-Trac® 4x4 system of the Rubicon. It has a 4:1 low gear ratio that’s ideal for bowling over uneven ground and big boulders.

Jeep Wrangler
Conquer Any Terrain

Electronic Front Sway Bar Disconnect is one all-terrain performance feature that’s only available with the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. When you’re pushing the limits of what’s possible, it helps this SUV answer the call. It remotely disconnects the front sway bar, allowing the wheels to drop and compress. This improves suspension articulation on rough trails.

HISTORY

The legacy of the Jeep Wrangler begins long before the Ford Bronco. Its great-grandfather, the original Willys MB, took to the battlefields of World War II during the 1940s. That’s why this SUV is still a symbol of freedom and capability for adventurers all over the world.

The Lasting Legacy

The Wrangler vs. Bronco rivalry heated up in the 1980s. Both manufacturers released their most luxurious versions of the SUVs to date. Drivers demanded more comfort and Jeep gave it to them. The Wrangler was the ideal mix of rugged and refined, while the Bronco was too trail-focused for common drivers and now too road-focused for hardcore enthusiasts.

Demand for the Bronco dried up, and Ford was forced to retire it in 1996. That made the Wrangler the winner of the first round and the enduring choice for explorers everywhere. The Bronco is making a comeback, but the Wrangler has been rocking the trails for decades, and all that know-how is sure to push it to victory once again.


Is the Jeep Wrangler Better Than the Ford Bronco?

Both SUVs have cemented their place in the pantheon of off-road performance, but with a more fine-tuned off-road trim level, more ways to power your adventure, and an enduring legacy of reliable off-road performance, the Jeep Wrangler is clearly the right choice for your wild rides around Hempstead.
