Ford Bronco vs. Jeep

Bronco vs. Jeep | Joe Cotton Ford, Your Local Ford Dealer

 

Dirt. Mud. Rocks. Sand. Dunes. Ponds. Puddles. Most drivers would try to steer around these elements. Off-roaders drive through them - cheerfully. Ford designed the all-new Bronco for the latter crowd, who believe their vehicle is a lifestyle choice. Bronco is ready for the customer with an adventurous spirit. Among four-wheeling enthusiasts, the off-road experience means something different in each part of the country. Some off-roading basics below may be helpful.


The 2021 Bronco will be revealed on July 13th, 2020.

 

 
 
The Ford Bronco will reportedly be built at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant and will be released in 2020 as a global vehicle. Ford executives have said that the Bronco will arrive in showrooms by late 2020.

Bronco vs. Jeep


As the next era of four-wheel-drive fun and freedom begins, Bronco will have a familiar rival in the off-road vehicle sphere. When the original Bronco debuted in 1966, it competed in the off-road SUV market against a four-wheel foe called Jeep CJ-5. Jeep built this off-road "civilian jeep" until 1986 when it announced a successor called the Wrangler. Jumping ahead to today, what's old is new again - these two trail-seeking competitors, determined to convince buyers they're the most capable off-road companion, will soon face off again in a 4WD showdown.

 

Ford Bronco Veiled | Joe Cotton Ford, Your Local Ford Dealer


Jeep's dedicated off-road Wrangler model is called Rubicon, which associates it with the famed Rubicon Trail in Northern California. Bronco has a rich history based in off-road capability and racing, and plans to keep that connection alive - Ford announced it will serve as the official vehicle of the 2020 King of the Hammers off-road event in Johnson Valley, California. While it's still too early to share details on what this means for the all-new Bronco lineup, it's safe to say this rivalry will be rejoined in the marketplace and on the trails with all the spirit and enthusiasm that defined it in the beginning, nearly 55 years ago.

 


Baja Ready

Ford Bronco R Racing Prototype | Joe Cotton Ford, Your Local Ford Dealer

 

When Ford made the decision to revive the Bronco, the development team knew immediately the storied Bronco history in off-road racing would play a prominent role in its comeback. The racing legends and the Bronco vehicles they drove in the late '60s and early '70s are instrumental to the off-road racing lore that built a reputation for Bronco. Their victories at the legendary Baja races and other punishing venues helped define the Bronco identity.


Ford revealed the Baja-ready race truck in November 2019 and announced their intentions to race in this year’s Baja 1000. According to Ford, the Bronco R’s design is inspired by the upcoming model of the Ford Bronco. That means this race truck is the best look we have at the Bronco’s potential design that will be premiered this spring. 


The new Bronco R features a boxy design, sharp lines, a roll cage, and a twin-turbo engine, according to Ford’s announcement. It rides a modified version of the Bronco’s chassis. An overhauled suspension with Fox components allows for 14 inches of travel in the front and 18 inches in the rear.

Great experience from beginning to end. On their Website, I saw one of their Internet specials advertised, so I went in, set up a test drive, asked my questions, set up financing, and -- only around 3 hours after I'd walked in -- drove away with my new car. The purchase went quickly and efficiently.

I went in for my 6 month check up as required for my maintenance package. Quite some time passed and I remembered that I needed new wiper blades. I went back and asked if that could be added and my service guy just smiled and added it. It was all covered in my plan. I'm bad at getting names but I have had nothing but great experiences in the dealership and service department. Highly recommend them. Not everyone is perfect, nor does everyone have a good day everyday. I have read the bad reviews and am thankful I have not had the same experiences. Keep up the good work and get these reviews up! 5 star for this household!

I have been servicing my 07 Navigator L at Cotton since I bought it new. Great service still going strong. Wouldn't take it anywhere else! Service manager Davy Malloy is one of the main reasons that I still service my Ford and Lincoln vehicles at Cotton. Great attention to detail.
