We all know the interior specs and dimensions of each from going to the Bronco and Wrangler wedsite.
For the people who have been up close and possibly sat inside of a new Bronco and a JLU, what are your thoughts in size comparison?
Which one looks or feels more roomy in the front and back seats? What about the cargo area?
Most people are familiar with the interior of a Wrangler. It would be nice to have a real world perspective from somebody that has compared them hands/eyes on.

also curious about the shoulder room. I have a JK and find it too snug. I would also be curious how it compares to a new Defender

The time has come for Ford to get demonstration models out to the dealers, not just periodic teaser photos and isolated regional events. The vehicle looks promising, but it needs to come out of hiding, be seen, sat in, closely looked at and hopefully reviewed by mainstream automobile organizations. You out there Levine?????????????????????????????????????????

The answer, again, is to go sit in a Ranger. Dimensions are LARGELY! the same.

Well that is good to know . . . looks like I will be cancelling my order. I am not sure why - even though it was clearly stated that it was built on the Ranger platform - but I was under the impression that it was wider in the cabin and had more shoulder room . . . my father has a new Ranger and I definitely find it is just too narrow . . . I am out. Best wishes . . .

Maybe they worry they will loose more reservations and potential customers if they let the cat tail out of the bag.;)

I did check it out - and outside of a couple miniscule differences it is the same as the Ranger . . . I reserved the Wildtrak 4 door so I compared the Ranger to the Bronco 4 door hard top.

Depressed.

So the Bronco has the same interior dimensions, dash, console, seats, roof, floor tubs, doors, body frame enforcement shape, and the seats are exactly the same size and they are perfectly positioned in the exact locations as the Ranger?
You sure about that?

Hold on. What they said is not true. The Bronco is slightly more roomy inside compared to the Ranger as far as measured dimensions go.
Just hang out a bit and wait for some real answers and opinions.

Will do our research for sure. At the end of the day I will actually still order the Bronco. If it shows up and it's not going to work I can always walk away!!

Wow. So literal. Head, shoulder and leg. Never said the rest.

I'd recommend sitting in and maybe test driving a jeep so you get an idea of where Broncos major competitor is at, and know that the Bronco is larger. But also being realistic and knowing it will be similar to the Ranger.

If you're super foreign to these type vehicles, there's a big chance you may be disappointed

It wasn't until I rented a jeep this past summer on vacation, that I really knew what I was getting myself into. Nevertheless I loved the jeep I rented so I personally should be good knowing the Bronco has more room

Yeah I also had a keep for a loaner for a month when the timing phasers were being replaced on my Raptor. A 4 door overland and it absolutely sucked. The ride and handling was a nightmare and was right inside. I’d never own one after that experience ... my hope is that Ford motives on those aspects - ride, handling and room, with the Bronco!!
