You have to remember, the packaging of the bronco allows for more interior room with a shorter wheelbase. The front tires are not nearly as far forward on the bronco.

What? The wrangler has SIGNIFICANTLY more wheelbase than a 4Runner, yet has nowhere near the space or towing capacity

Dude, chill out - the guy was on "lunch break" and using a "best guess" based on several folks coming to a 112" wheelbase estimate based on all the mules we've seen. Did you read the original post? I don't think it was meant to be a comprehensive work. You're more than welcome to provide a better scaling attempt as it sounds like you have information we don't, being convinced it was a half-foot off. I know where the 112" came from but where did you get that info that the wheelbase is 118"?

Playing around on extended lunch break :)
Not perfect scaling, but I tried to get them close, then scaled to hit the known wheelbase specs.
4th gen 4runner exact same wheelbase as 5th gen, just had a pic of mine to throw in for fun :)
Mocked up the Bronc with 112" based on someone else's best guess here...

Maybe he's talking about how wide he wants it to be. ;)

Midnightblue was our dedicated FSB proponent.
112" wide wheelbase would make for a sweet rollover-proof trim level. I mean, is Ford serious about this off-road capability business or what?

I just have issue with folks laughing at what they consider to be garbage posts when someone is taking the time to post reference images like the OP provided. I appreciate seeing these comparisons for my own reference. If the OP is wrong, using information that he just made up, that's a different issue... And it would be nice if folks trashing a post would provide counter-info to consider. OP used data that is generally agreed upon here when the subject of wheelbase came up so it's a comparison with what seems to be 'most-likely' info. Trashing posts without any constructive replies does not encourage others, with the means, to add to the conversation with their own content.

You're joking, right? The 4Runner has PLENTY of space inside, rides better than any full sized truck I've driven, and can tow 5000lbs, which is 2000lbs more than the Jeep that has that oh-so-desirable longer wheelbase...

You're almost getting what I'm suggesting. Try thinking a bit harder and you might get there. What I'm asserting is that wheelbase isn't the sole factor to determining interior volume and towing capacity... in fact, it's fairly insignificant. Mustang has a wheelbase 3" shorter than the Camaro... guess which one is significantly more spacious. Wheelbase plays a very insignificant role in cabin space... The Bronco can have a 50" wheelbase, but if it has 50" of overhang in both the front and rear, then guess what... it'll still have more cargo space than a Jeep

Just because more spacious vehicles often have longer wheelbases doesn't mean that every vehicle with a long wheelbase is going to be more spacious. Getting it yet?

Oh, here's a good one considering your profile picture… Did you know that the 2006 Range Rover Sport has a wheelbase 10" shorter than the Wrangler? Yes, that means it's even shorter still than the Bronco that you're already writing off as being smaller than a Jeep and less capable of towing than a Civic, and it can tow about 5,000lbs MORE than the longer wheelbase Wrangler and has a more spacious interior. Getting it yet?

When people speak in absolutes it creates turmoil. However, it does make for some interesting break downs of why each other are wrong lol

I'll share a good early Bronco dimensions/cargo space story.

Back in the day, my then-girlfriend, an equestrienne, used my '71 Bronco for the afternoon. I arrived back at the house from school to find she had a bought a big pony and brought it home in the back of the truck. It's halter was tied to the roll bar. Yes, there was horseshit on the floor.

The pony stared at me, munching hay. Totally unperturbed.

It was so outrageous that I wasn't mad. I did wonder what the hell I was getting myself into.

How did you get it down?

I need closure.
