i'll be honest, the bronco looks much, much better than the new defender. speaking of retro suv's, how about the lada niva? the single longest-running suv in production in a single generation? eh, anyone? eh? oh... only me then...

Yes, I'd love to buy a Bronco. I'm a big Ford fan. I'm also a big fan of your channel but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Mat, don't go woke. Woke sucks and divides society. The world is divided enough as it is without the need of this nonsense. Cheers mate!

The defender is a great city car and does well of road, but you can't fit bull bars, a winch (if you have not ordered it as an option from scratch). The reliability has already proven to be horrible, so it will more likely spend more time off road (but in most cases off road at the dealership). I think the Bronco looks better too and is half price. So if you want an off roader, go Bronco, if you want a city car that can go of road and you are not too faffed about reliability (and have deep pockets), go defender.

the bronco is clear the better choice, this rover play station 5 is all the time broken down, we have 2 of them in the offroad club, there my rubicon is a super reliable car against, and that says everything.

How can you compare a luxury brand as Land Rover in terms of price to a Ford? It is obvious that Defender would cost much more as a base model compared to Bronco

Bronco hands down the Defenders looks like a damn Kia f*** that
Occasional Enthusiast Rob Jones
To be clear the bronco is an unproven rock crawler, the defender is an urban suv with boots. The bronco was taken out of production in cira 2012 as it almost bankrupted Ford. This was due to the high center of gravity which tended to roll the car. We are happy to note they now have roll over cages of standard this time. But its bazzar they are still are offering large rims which give a poor ride and could roll the truck. Land rover has launched into controversy over the discriminatory launch adverts for the discovery which will reduce sales until they sort out this pr mess which threatens the brand and share price.

Ford need to trim the Cuv/suv line up in the uk and europe. Get rid of Ecosport. Keep Puma as the smallest. Keep the Kuga/Escape, get rid of the Edge, and bring in these 3 Broncos 👍

They may not be sold from official Ford dealerships but there are company’s in the UK that import Ford F series trucks including raptors and also dodge rams and other US spec vehicles, and you can get them converted to right hand drive, They may end up more expensive but sooner or later you will see broncos in the UK as well just not at official Ford dealerships. Oh and I vote for the bronco even though I am a Brit.

I love both. I'm more fun of LR Defender, but it need more its originality (old style) as we knew Defender 35yrs ago. But FD Broncos has the originalitys that Defender had in 35yrs ago. I'll chose LR Defender for Town/City ride and chose FD Broncos for Jungle/Desert ride.

While the LandRover appears to be superficially similar in terms of off-road ability, the harsh reality is that the marque is famous for being totally unreliable. As they say in Australia: "if you want to go into the bush, get a Landie. But if you want to come out again, buy a Toyota." The Defender relies on airbags to raise the vehicle to give it some ground clearance whereas the Bronco comes with standard 11.6" clearance that won't break on you when you need it (burst bag, broken compressor, detached hose, etc.). And while the Landie has more horsepower, it's torque than counts for off-roading and both vehicles provide around 400 foot-pounds but the Bronco provides its grunt lower in the rev range, which is better for mud, rocks, sand, and snow. And as anyone who's used brake-based traction control knows, this type of system gives up when the going gets really tough whereas diff locks just work, full stop. Lastly, the Bronco even has a superior wading depth. These reasons, and the dramatically superior load space, is why I've ordered a fully-equipped Bronco for 2021 and not a Defender 110.

Bronco. And Bronco more likely to be reliable, while Defender, sorry. And in any case, if I have to get a off-roader, I will get a old Toyota with no electronics or an Old Suzuki. Defender will end up by private school doors and solving probs in the dealer.

Ford would make a killing if they sold this in Australia not a converted import like the f trucks though. They would clear up and take sales from LR, jeep, Mitsubishi and Toyota like they have done with utes. Of course we do love our Diesels which the US doesn’t but they have a lovely donk in their Ranger and could share some bits I’m sure- they are probably scared of taking sales from their other cars... but their other stuff is getting hammered at the moment and this would do the trick. I think I would even consider selling my cruiser.

No matter how hard you try to dip Bronco in shit, it looks far better and surely will be more reliable than any model of RR group. Secondly, when LR started making 4 doors in dinosaurs age as you say, it was Ford who fed those dinosaurs. So watch your smart aleck comments, you get over and beyond decency limits, thinking you're funny.
