Land Rover Defender vs Ford Bronco

There are two off-roading models that have returned after a long hiatus from the market, the Land Rover Defender and the Ford Bronco, and they are ready to tackle every adventure you have planned! To help you determine which of these SUVs best suits your lifestyle, we are putting them against each other, comparing all they have to offer from the engine power under the hood to the features found throughout the trim levels. Keep reading to learn all about it!

Land Rover Defender Power

There are two engine options offered for the Land Rover Defender. The base engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that generates up to 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The second engine option is a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder that delivers up to 395 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. This engine also features mild-hybrid technology for enhanced fuel efficiency! Each of these engines is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, all-wheel drive and a two-speed transfer case.

Ford Bronco Power 

There are also two engines offered to power the Ford Bronco. The standard engine for this SUV is a 2.3-liter turbocharged inline-4 that produces up to 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. The second engine offered is a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged inline-4 that delivers 310 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. There are two transmission options for these engines, a manual seven-speed and an automatic 10-speed. There are also two transfer cases to choose from.

2021 Land Rover Defender Design

There are six Defender trim levels to choose from. A five-passenger seating configuration is standard but there is an available jump seat offered that boosts the passenger capacity to six! The base model comes outfitted with features like Apple and Android smartphone integration, an adjustable air suspension, cloth seats, a 10-inch touchscreen, 18-inch steel wheels, and advanced safety features like forward collision warning with automatic braking. The upper trims add larger wheels, a premium sound system, exclusive paint jobs, a panoramic sunroof, premium leather upholstery, adaptive cruise control, a head-up display, heated front- and second-row seats.

2021 Ford Bronco Design

Ford offers the Bronco in a total of seven trim levels, that may be a lot of options but they are all pretty bare. The base model comes with features like daytime running lights, removable doors, carpet flooring, an 8-inch touchscreen, a center floor console, and a convertible roof. The upper trims add aluminum wheels, a premium sound system, remote engine start, exterior graphic options, multiple grille options, a premium sound system, and skid plates. If you want more features, you're going to need to opt for a few packages that will quickly up the price.


In the end, there can only be one and that one is the Land Rover Defender! The Ford Bronco may look cool and offer a manual transmission option but it just can't keep up with the Defender's sleek Land Rover looks, mild-hybrid engine technology, or the lengthy list of features found within the trim levels.
