2021 Jeep Wrangler Power & Handling
The Wrangler’s engine lineup is nothing short of impressive. The standard engine is a 3.6L V6 that generates up to 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. This engine is enhanced with Jeep’s eTorque mild-hybrid technology and offers two transmission options, an 8-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual. The next engine option is a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder that produces 270 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Jeep also offers a 3.0L turbodiesel V6 that creates 260 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. These engines are only paired with the 8-speed automatic transmission. The last engine offered is the new 4xe plug-in hybrid that kicks out 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, creating up to 25 miles of all-electric range. Jeep also offers three 4×4 systems for the Wrangler lineup.
2021 Ford Bronco Power & Handling
In the 2021 model year, there are two engine options offered for the Ford Bronco. The standard engine is a 2.3L turbocharged 4-cylinder that creates 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. The optional engine is a 2.7L twin-turbocharged V6 that generates 310 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. Both engine options are paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission but the 4-cylinder engine can be paired with an available seven-speed manual transmission. There are only two 4×4 systems to choose from though.
2021 Jeep Wrangler Features & Design
Drivers have four Wrangler trim levels and two body styles to choose from in the 2021 model year. The base model is called the Sport and it is outfitted with standard features like crank windows, tow hooks, skid plates, 17-inch steel wheels, manual door locks, fog lights, and a 5-inch touchscreen with Jeep’s Uconnect infotainment system. The upper trims add to that with all-weather mats, power windows, alloy wheels, smartphone integration, automatic climate control, a 7-inch touchscreen, body-colored exterior styling pieces, larger wheels, parking sensors, and so much more! The Rubicon trim level is the most comprehensively outfitted Wrangler model for off-roading with features like electronic locking front and rear differentials, rock rails, an electronic disconnecting front stabilizer bar, and heavy-duty dan 44 front and rear axles with a shorter 4.10 gear ratio.
2021 Ford Bronco Features & Design
There are a total of seven Bronco trim levels and two body styles to choose from in the 2021 model year. Each of the seven models is outfitted with just the bare minimum. Throughout the lineup, drivers will find features like skid plates, carpet flooring that is sure to get destroyed quickly with regular off-roading, remote engine start, unique graphic options, an 8-inch touchscreen, daytime running lights, and a premium sound system. Overall, for a brand new model, the Bronco is severely lacking when it comes to features.
Now that you have learned more about both of these off-roading SUVs, we think it’s pretty clear that the 2021 Jeep Wrangler is the one to choose! Not only does it offer two more engine options than the Ford Bronco, but they are also diesel and plug-in hybrid options. Plus, the trim levels are jam-packed with features that make it perfect for weekday commuting and weekend adventures.
