I'm Yuri, I'm Jakub, and we're going for a drive! Waiting for them to get their hands on a proper bronco.
their video is out, but no off road. they said they were being nice to the dealership but the throttle house guys took the same bronco. weird. maybe they don't care. but in the straight pipes video they have a part that has the clicking of the roof. you can't hear it throughout the video though.

Thanks for posting the video. Definitely worth the 30 minutes.

As big a negative as I've heard some people on this forum make Jeep's sound bar out to be (not saying you are, I'm just speaking in general), I've never once had someone in the back seat of one of my Jeeps say it was an issue. I've also sat back there and I don't get the complaints. Maybe it's more just the perception of a flaw since Ford is pointing to its absence in the Bronco as a big plus. From the driver's perspective, I'd rather have the sound bar IF audio quality in the Bronco is in fact an issue and a consequence of no overhead sound bar.
There is a sound bar in the Bronco Accessory catalog - not compatible with the B/O LUX Package.

What hit me was the closing comment about a more powerful Bronco. The problem with waiting so long is I start thinking, oh, if I wait just a little longer I can have something cooler, SasQ Manual or V8, or Heritage........

"They call it the BadSquatch."

"And they think calling it that is cool."

Great video. Just enough humor to keep it from being dry. Plenty of information on both vehicles. And an actual head to head comparison in the only place really matters for these two, off-road.

Great video. I have not seen these guys before, but I will be watching them from now on.

They were pretty fair to both vehicles and I think they pointed out the main differences with the two. The Jeep is an unapologetic off roader, with compromises to daily driving, while the Bronco has a few compromises to off roading, to make it a better daily driver. It's like the love child of a Wrangler and 4Runner.

The one thing that keeps jumping out to me in these videos is the rear axle articulation. There really does not seem to be much. I wonder if it is less because of the Sas package. Doesn't seem like it droops very far.

Nice video

My key takeaways from video:
Bronco Pros:
On-road driving
Interior space
Newer Tech

Jeep pros
Articulation
Width/maneuverability
Engine options including diesel, V8 and hybrid

Bronco Cons
Speakers
Lack of articulation (know it was a wildtrack)
Safety nannies (yet another warning, even if not a goat mode fault, still annoying to me)

Jeep Cons
Steering
Interior Space


I think this confirmed what most think. If you are hard core off-roader get a Jeep, for everyone else get a bronco. Jeep is definitely going to lose all it's soccer mom/mall crawler crowd and for good reason, and alot of moderate off-roaders as well.

I do worry about electrical/reliability issues with all the new tech and in every video we see wheels coming way off the ground, but the bronco still makes it through (on demand front locker and sway bar disco is pretty cool) so maybe I just have to change my mindset on that being a big negative.

Bronco definitely looks the best, has the best tech and is the best for the price and love the on road manners. Two great vehicles for sure!

Such a shocker that the top is the thing they disliked about the Bronco. I cannot stand to have that kind of noise when I'm driving down the road. My EB is too loud to hear any creaks with a soft top and no doors. :LOL:
They surely wouldn't be happy with the top on my Wrangler either. Sometimes that thing "creaks" like my old knees. :)

I have never found the crossbar at the b pillar to be a negative. But I also never thought about the option of not having it. I am pumped and it's one of the first things I thought was a big advantage of the Bronco.

I'm anticipating it will transform the open air experience.

I personally like the sound bar in the Jeep.Just my opinion, I usually have at least a bikini top on as The sun get too hot for me. I prefer the shaded drivers seat with no doors.
