Ford Bronco vs Jeep Cherokee: Engines & Horsepower

Under the hood of the 2021 Ford Bronco, you will find a standard 2.3L EcoBoost® engine paired with a smooth shifting 7-speed manual transmission. If you want an extra boost, you can also upgrade to an available 2.7L EcoBoost® engine.

The Jeep Cherokee also offers more than one engine in its lineup. However, its engines pale in comparison to the 2021 Ford Bronco when it comes to horsepower, which enables you to change lanes and merge with even greater confidence:

2021 Ford Bronco vs 2021 Jeep Cherokee: Performance & Drive Modes

In addition to offering engines with more pep and quicker responsiveness, the Ford Bronco also comes standard with a Terrain Management System™ that features five standard Goes Over Any Terrain (G.O.A.T.) Modes™, including:

  • Normal
  • ECO
  • Sport
  • Slippery
  • Sand

On higher trim levels, you will find two additional modes, including Mud/Ruts and Rock Crawl. In comparison, the 2021 Jeep Cherokee offers a somewhat more limited selection of six available drive modes.

Ford Bronco vs Jeep Cherokee: Touchscreens & Audio Systems

Another element of any on-road and off-road companion is the technology inside the cabin. Both models offer the same number of speakers in their immersive audio systems. However, one of them offers a bit more, when it comes to an expansive infotainment touchscreen display:

The extra inches of touchscreen real estate in the Ford Bronco mean you'll have access to larger, easier-to-read icons.

2021 Ford Bronco vs 2021 Jeep Cherokee: Design & Construction

While the Jeep Cherokee features a standard five-passenger SUV design, the Ford Bronco comes in two different adventure-ready configurations, including a 2-door and a 4-door option.

The open-air design of the 2021 Ford Bronco offers an available quick-release roof and doors that make it easy to fully immerse yourself into your surroundings. If you feel the call of the wild, you may find the Ford Bronco configurations enable you to connect with your environment in a deeper way than the enclosed construction of the 2021 Jeep Cherokee.

Get Ready to Roll: Ford Bronco or Jeep Cherokee?

Though the 2021 Jeep Cherokee offers a few similar features to the 2021 Ford Bronco, it falls short in the categories of horsepower, drive modes, and infotainment features. If you want a capable vehicle that enables you to fully immerse yourself in the world around you, then we at Ace Ford think you'll love exploring in the Ford Bronco.
