With production scheduled to begin at the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant in a few months, we’ve been seeing more and more 2021 Ford Bronco prototypes out testing. This also provides folks with the opportunity to snap some pictures of these vehicles and post them online, somewhat whetting our appetites until deliveries begin next summer. These latest shots come to us from a Bronco6G member and show a Bronco Wildtrak next to a lifted Jeep Wrangler.
This particular Bronco Wildtrak is finished in Race Red and features the optional graphics package. The Wildtrak also comes standard with the Sasquatch Package, which adds 35-inch tires. For that reason, this Ford Bronco actually measures up pretty close to the Wrangler, which appears to be sitting on a two-inch lift with 285-series tires, though it’s hard to tell exactly.
The Wildtrak is also wearing the black soft top, which looks rather nice in this particular configuration, especially with the contrasting black graphics. While both of these vehicles are four-doors, the Wrangler is fitted with a hardtop, so it isn’t a complete apples-to-apples comparison, but both are red, which is pretty ironic.
This picture does confirm what we’ve seen in some prior pictures of Wranglers and Broncos sitting side by side, however, and that’s the fact that the Bronco seems to sit rather high compared to a stock Jeep. However, there isn’t a ton of space between the tire and the fender flare, and we think that Ford’s reborn SUV will look even better with at least a two-inch lift, especially the longer four-door, and perhaps some 37-inch tires.
One thing’s for sure – this won’t be the last time we see a Bronco and a Wrangler sitting side by side. In a few months, these two vehicles will dominate mall parking lots, and likely, off-road trails, too.
We’ll have more on the Bronco very soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Bronco news and continuous Ford news coverage.
I love it when I see Jeeps driven in the city that are lifted and otherwise made to be not half bad off-road, but you know the most off-road the thing sees is when the guy’s teenage daughter accidentally jumps a cub.
I’m a Ford guy. But this photo ruins me on the Bronco.
The Jeep looks pretty damn hot … the bronco looks like a Blazer ..
I sincerely hope your comments are an attempt at trollery.
Well one thing for sure the next owners of FC WONT HAVE TO SPEND ANY money on design it’s basically been the same since willy’s first built it… also the Bronco looks more modern and high tech. But the jeeps are good in shopping parking lots😆
.. poor gary, still going up the down escalator. (hard to laff, when the
material is 127 years old)
After a 127 years it’s still a good joke!😆
My guess is that they’re being tested together. On and off road.
I am really digging the full windshield Little Caesars sticker on the Jeep. On one hand it is really dangerous , but on the other I do like Little Caesars.
It is looking pretty good.
