Ford Bronco vs. 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser: Comparing Exterior Dimensions

The 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser was revealed in early August with sights set on the Ford Bronco. The two off-roaders will likely be cross-shopped by many, and Ford Authority is here to explore what’s similar – and what’s not – about the two vehicles.

In fact, the Land Cruiser and the four-door Bronco have quite a bit in common. Both are midsize body-on-frame SUVs derived from midsize pickup trucks, and both feature relatively similar exterior footprints. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at how they stack up against one another below.

Model: 4-door Everglades (4-door) Raptor (4-door) Land Cruiser 1958 Land Cruiser & Land Cruiser First Edition
Wheelbase (in.): 116.1 116.1 116.5 112.2 112.2
Overall Length (in.): 189.4 198.9 191 193.7 193.7
Overall Width (in.): 86.2 86.2 86.9 84.2 84.2
Overall Height (in.): 73 78.7 77.8 73.2 73.2
Ground Clearance (in.): 8.3 11.7 13.1 8.7 8.7
Approach Angle (deg.): 35.5 37.8 47.2 30 31
Breakover Angle (deg.): 20 26.3 30.8 25 25
Departure Angle (deg.): 29.7 37.1 40.5 22 22

More specifically, the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser is derived from the Toyota Tacoma, while the Bronco shares its platform with the Ford Ranger. The differences start at the wheelbase: the four-door Bronco measures in at 116 inches, while the Land Cruiser has a shorter space between the wheels, coming in at 112.2 inches. Despite the shorter wheelbase, the Land Cruiser is a bit longer than the Bronco, at 193.7 inches, while the Bronco comes in around the 190 inch mark (depending on model/trim). The Land Cruiser is also more narrow than the Bronco, with an overall width of 84.2 inches to the Bronco Raptor’s 86.9 inches, the Everglades’ 86.2 inches, or the regular models’ 189.4 inches.

The Ford Bronco is also taller than the Toyota Land Cruiser, measuring in from 73 inches to 78.7 inches (again, depending on trim). Comparatively, the Land Cruiser measures in at 73.2 inches. It’s a similar story in terms of ground clearance, with the “regular” Bronco boasting 8.2 inches, the Everglades featuring 11.7 inches, and the Raptor at 13.1 inches. The Land Cruiser, meanwhile, clears the road by 8.7 inches across the board.

Now, for the nitty gritty off-road metrics. The Bronco cleans house when it comes to approach angle, with a 35.5-degree rating on the low end to 47.2 degrees on the high end. The Land Cruiser 1958 has a 30-degree approach angle, while the Land Cruiser and Land Cruiser First Edition have a 31-degree approach angle.

When it comes to breakover angle, “regular” Bronco models feature a 20 degree breakover angle, trailing the Land Cruiser’s 25-degree breakover. However, the Bronco Everglades features a breakover angle of 26.3 degrees, while the Bronco Raptor comes in at 30.8 degrees.

Finally, the Land Cruiser doesn’t hold a candle to the Bronco’s departure angles of 29.7, 37.1 and 40.5 degrees. The Land Cruise features a 22-degree departure.

As the specs clearly show, the serious off-roader might find the modern-era Bronco’s exterior dimensions and off-roading capabilities more attractive than those of the 2024 Land Cruiser. It’s also worth noting that the Bronco offers various removable roof systems that enable an open-air experience. By comparison, the Land Cruise has a more traditional, fixed roof setup.

    Toyota’s new vehicle is a Land Cruiser in name only. Someone remarked it is really the new 4Runner, and I agree. It makes me wonder what the new 4Runner will actually be like. Ford’s quality issues aside, the Bronco and its numbers look better all around.

      “Ford’s quality issues aside”
      The elephant in the room…

    The Land Cruiser will be on the trails while the Bronco is in the shop wait to get recalls done that they don’t even know how to fix , or needs parts that they can get !

      Pretty much…

    Unless I misread the Toyota information Toyota will have some sort of hybrid engine available for virtually every vehicle they build.
    Will the Bronco that is a daily driver last as long as the Land Cruiser?
    Will the daily driver bronco be worth as much as a comparable Land Cruiser?
    Toyota is eating Fords lunch. I have a Maverick because it is the only small truck with a hybrid that I can afford. Ford seems to be bent taking the price advantage away.

    Different strokes for different folks. The Toyota is an SUV with some good off-road capability. The Bronco is an off-road vehicle that can be a daily driver. An unfortunately the major differences are in quality. The Toyota will likely be around and running long after the Bronco and car crusher meet up. Oh, I’m a Ford owner.

    The Land Cruiser has way more in common dimensionally with the Ford Everest – in Trend spec: Ground Clearance 8.9″, length 193.5, approach/breakover/departure 30.2, 25, 21.9. Almost identical. Except for the price! The Everest Trend, which is comparably spec’d to the base Land Cruiser, is only 65K AUD, which is around 42K USD. Ford: sell the Everest in the US and eat Toyota’s lunch. Maybe you don’t want to cannibalize Explorer or Bronco sales, but if you don’t do it, Toyota is going to do it for you.
