» Conclusion » Perfect? Not by a long shot. But the Bronco is a worthy competitor. 

» Cons »

  • Noisy roof – Excessive wind noise at highway speeds
  • Longer braking distance when compared to some Wranglers

» Equal

  • Acceleration numbers are about the same for both the Bronco Outer Banks and the Wrangler Sahara – These are not drag racing vehicles
  • Outer Banks’ tires geared towards on-road driving

» Pros

  • Easier to drive
