Wrangler vs. Bronco: The Off-Road Showdown

Jeep recently announced the release of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe, a brand-new plug-in electric Wrangler. Around the same time, Ford announced the return of the Ford Bronco – an upgraded version of its classic predecessor that’s been off the market for almost 25 years. It’s safe to say that SUV fanatics & off-road enthusiasts are excited for these new releases.

Both Jeep and Ford have die-hard fans that already know which SUV they’ll drive next. But for some, the thrilling news of two grand releases it comes with a dilemma: Wrangler or Bronco?
