2022 Ford Bronco vs. Its Competition

2022 Ford Bronco
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The Bronco Sport preceded the Bronco and shares some design elements, though it’s based on the Ford Escape; off-road enthusiasts won’t mistake the two, but the Bronco Sport appeals to shoppers who like the look but don’t need the capability.

The Bronco bucks off-road as well as the venerable Jeep Wrangler, and has more road comfort in certain configurations.

With its roof off, the four-door could compete with the Jeep Gladiator and its open bed, though the increased functionality of the bed sacrifices departure and breakover angles.

The Land Rover Defender offers a more luxurious take on off-road capability with an air suspension and unibody construction.

The Tacoma pickup appeals to off-roaders for its reliability and durability, but Toyota struggles to keep up with Ford in technology.
