Especially because Car and Driver got 4 seconds flat with the XR. That is quite the variance.
Car and Driver's 0-60 times should always be taken as absolutely ideal conditions with no regard for vehicle longevity. They do everything under the sun trying to get the absolute fastest 0-60 time they can such as manually starting in 2nd if the auto will allow it. They also omit the 1ft roll out time which in many trucks is .3-.5 of a second. In the wrangler 392 that was .3 so they actually had a 4.3 0-60.

On another note didn't Motor Trend get a slower time with the XR vs. the regular? I get that the tests may have been under different environmental factors etc. but still.

So according to Motor Trend, the XR is slower than the non XR both 0-60 and in the 1/4 mile (by almost 3/4 second).

No reason to even look at those numbers anymore.

Straight axle for the win. IFS belongs on front wheel drive cars not on a rugged 4x4. That’s what Ford says about their HD trucks anyways.

I cant believe there are still people who don't know that the Bronco Sport is a completely unrelated vehicle to the real, full size Bronco.
Sadly I think even Bronco Sport owners- some of them I am sure jumped the gun and bought the sport even thinking they were getting THE bronco...

But when you pull up behind a Bronco, it looks so much smaller for some reason. Not intimidating or impressive in the least.
There is a BIG difference between the Bronco Sport and the Bronco. The Bronco sport is more comparable to a regular compact SUV (closer to a Ford Escape):

And the full sized Bronco is actually larger than the Wrangler:

With that being said, if availability or money wasn't a factor, I'd go Wrangler 392 all the way. Congrats to Jeep on the Motortrend SUV of the year win!
