2023 Jeep Wrangler

2023 Jeep Wrangler vs 2023 Ford Bronco

The 2023 Jeep Wrangler represents the fourth-generation of the storied off-road SUV. This five-seater 4x4 vehicle has been a staple on North American roads for years, thanks to its utilitarian design, multitude of available models and adventure-ready capabilities. Largely devoid of a direct competitor for decades, the Wrangler now finds itself competing with its former rival, the Ford Bronco. Originally released in the late 1960s and produced up until the mid 1990s, the Bronco shares the Wrangler’s off-road ready appeal and box-like utilitarian design. With the Wrangler receiving a recent full model redesign and the Bronco’s revival into the market, it’s understandable that customers will cross-shop these two lifestyle SUVs.

Wrangler Exterior

Iconic Jeep Design

With its classic bodylines, iconic seven-slot grille and pronounced front & rear fenders, the 2023 Wrangler is unmistakably a Jeep product through and through. Available in both two- and four-door variants, as well as a new half-door design that pays homage to the 1960’s Jeeps of old, the 2023 Wrangler can be outfitted in a multitude of different ways. With its 13 available trim levels, multiple stylish wheel design & size options, and its handful of available open-top roof configurations, it’s hard to beat the factory-customizability of the 2023 Jeep Wrangler. Not to mention the hundreds of available Mopar® Accessories that are designed to precisely fit and function with the Wrangler, set your ride apart from everyone else on the road.

New Ford Bronco 

On the other hand, the 2023 Ford Bronco offers a similar off-road utilitarian design that certainly draws attention on the road thanks to its brand-new grille and headlight layout. The Bronco offers similar cargo space and passenger room compared to the Wrangler, but lacks the level of interior comfort in seat quality and amenities to truly make it a match for Jeep off-roading.

Wrangler Interior

The 2023 Jeep Wrangler boasts several cleverly engineered interior features and amenities that make Jeep ownership a breeze for weekend warriors and adventurers alike. Features like weather-resistant carpeting & a one-way floor drain that makes cleaning up that much easier, several ingenious storage compartments sprinkled throughout the cabin, and 60/40 split-folding rear seats all come standard on the Wrangler. Owners also have the ability to choose from a handful of available seat material options and equip their vehicle with comfort features like a heated & leather-wrapped steering wheel and one-touch power windows and speed-sensitive power door locks.

On the other hand, the Ford Bronco offers drivers a similar interior experience as the Wrangler with available features such as rubberized flooring with drain plugs, marine-grade mildew-resistant vinyl seats and rubber-sealed switch gear that protect from the elements. Both vehicles feature similar interior front seat dimensions, while the Bronco boasts a larger rear cargo capacity that’s achieved by sacrificing some of the rear seat passengers’ overall space,
