Why are you choosing the Bronco over competitors like 4Runner and Wrangler?

What appeals you to the 2021 Ford Bronco over other competitors such as the Toyota 4runner and Jeep Wrangler? Explain.

I love the styling. As a guy who owned a Jeep Wrangler for 171k miles, I can say that it’s ok but a dog of a motor. The transmission is always hunting at highway speeds with 35” tires. Even regeared it suffers up hills with in and out of OD. The fords I have owned have all been pretty much flawless. I love the ecoboost motors. It will have a modern interior that is still rugged. IFS in my f150 isn’t bad when u lift them. Obviously not a rock climbing champ but I don’t really do that anyway. So 99.999 percent of the time it will be better for me to have IFS. 10 speed autos are damn good transmissions. I just want a nice army green, grabber blue, or 1998 mustang cobra yellow and I will be sold. Still not sure on 2d or 4d. I got to get in one of each to see.

Been waiting for comparisons to the 4runner, everything I see only says it will compete with the Jeep.

I owned a TRD Pro 4Runner years back, sold it for various reasons. Why I didn’t love that car and think I want this one?
- engine (4runner is so slow)
- interior finish ( 45k for top of line 4runner doesn’t get you much amenities)
- Gas mileage (not expecting anything crazy, but I was getting 16 in the 4runner and it was soo slow)

I will probably will never take the roof off, so would like to see a solid roof to reduce noise, but I get why it’s not an option. Due to this, and obvious quality concerns, I will never own a FCA vehicle.

As a Ford truck owner for the last 40 years,I have confidence in their reliability. We do a fair amount of wilderness runs where breaking down is just not an option.

My current 3.5 EB rocks at high altitude where we live as well.

Haven't bought one yet ;) but I'd never own a Jeep (not a knock people, simmer down, just my personal preference). No 2 door 4-Runner or removable top, and I've never owned a Toyota, although I've looked at Tundras before. From what I understand the 4 Runners are very capable.

I've owned several Broncos in the past (its funny Bronco autocorrected to 'brick' which is about right 😄). Was always a FSB guy and dipped into the EB world for a little while so a lot of it is nostalgia for me. My FSBs are what I drove in my late teens and early 20s and well, I'm getting older, empty-nester, etc. If I don't buy a Bronco, I'll probably just buy a new truck, the timing is working out perfectly with the end of my loan on my Ram and so my options are wide open. One route I've explored is if I don't buy a new Bronco I'll keep my truck once paid off, give my 70 Mustang to my son & buy a year or two old 5.0.
