This is the Ford Bronco..Ford’s answer to Jeep’s segment-defining Wrangler But what you might not have seen is how it does, not only offroad, but in the snow offroad You can get your bronco in a couple different flavors You can get a base 2.3L 4 cylinder turbo or you can get a 2.7L TT v6 And if you’re patient, soon you’ll be able to get a big power raptor version The 330hp and 415 lbft fit this over 4700lb body better than the 4 cylinder Hardcore rock crawlers will appreciate the solid front axle on the Wrangler, but that’s a small percentage of buyers and on the roads that solid front axle makes the Wrangler a chore to keep in its lane. The bronco swaps out that solid front axle for independent front suspension. It also adds rack-and-pinion steering…yanno like every other car has aside from the jeep What this results in is something that feels MUCH more at home on the road. There’s so much less deadness on center, which means you don’t have to make constant little corrections to keep the truck from wandering around in it’s lane Even with the 35 inch tires on this, I feel like I have a much better sense of what my tires are doing And at the end of the day, with the IFS and normal steering the Bronco is disciplined enough to get fitted with 360 co-pilot assist…something that can’t be said about the Jeep This is the Wildtrack which comes with the sasquatch package Sasquatch gets you 35 inch tires with 17in beadlock capable wheels, high clearance suspension, position-sensitive Bilstein shocks, high clearance fender flares for the dunes out in Cali. Additionally, you can get 2 grille options for the Bronco, this is the only acceptable one Same thing with the running lights Hood clips for wire limb spreaders Around the side the truck looks short and funky IMO BUT IT’S STILL HUGE The back is the same as a Jeep, but the taillights are shaped like a “B” I just feels a little “nicer” without sacrificing the rugged feel The center screen is huge and the SYNC system is perfectly fine Got your diff locks right above, and then above that you’ve got the influencer package I just like the way they laid out the buttons – the cam is next to the volume for trail stuff Spin dial for 4×4 and GOAT modes vs Jeep shiftable transfer case Design is great – blue stitching, camo in-lay, ergonomic handles We are in the Wildtrak which comes Standard with the Sasquatch package, and for those of you who want to know the difference between this and the Badlands, lets do a quick comparison. High-level, the Badlands is tailored more so for your rock crawlers, the people that want to hit MOAB, whereas the Wildtrask is for high-speed off-roading, bajing in the dunes of california. Both have: Locking rear and front diffs HOSS suspension system with Bilstein Position Sensitive Dampers Which provide three zones of varying damping rates with nitrogen-charged remote reservoirs Where they differ: WildTrack comes standard with Sasquatch package But it is optional with the Badlands package Badlands comes standard with 33, but you can get mud terrain 35s if you’d like Wildtrak comes standard with 35s Badlands has a more sophisticated suspension setup than the wildtrack in that the Badlands has automatic sway bar disconnects. Not an option on the Wildtrak The Standard Sasquatch package on this Wildtrack make it sit about 1.5in taller. They both of GOAT modes, but Badlands has rock crawl mode, and Wildtrack replaces it with sport mode Badlands comes standard with rock rails, and underbody protection, where as the underbody protection is an option for wildtrack Obviously its nicer to have this 2 door which provides a shorter wheelbase than the 4 door but you option both configurations with the trail turn assist, which basically reduces the turning radius at low-speeds by locking or breaking the inside rear wheel, so let’s test it out. Obviously out here we also want to be very careful to maintain the course and have as much grip as possible. Important to air down, also in 4 low with dif locks on to provide the ultimate control. Another feature this has that allows me to focus on the trail is one pedal driving will break the bronco when you take your foot off the gas, lets test those out. This mound will be a good test of our grip, power, and also our angles Approach: 43.2 degrees (45 is halfway to straight up) Breakover: 29 Departure: 37.2 Clearance: 11.6 inches
