» 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

In this video they show you the four-door, two-door, drivetrain, design elements, and suspension options, and they they tell you which configuration they’d actually buy.

Jonny Lieberman says, “Design wise, it’s a knockout. I mean, this is such a cool looking vehicle.”

Sean Holman has been involved in the project for three years, and has signed a non-disclosure agreement, so he wasn’t able to add much, but if you read between the line and listen to the questions he’s asking …
