Magazine articles today are complete garbage. Nothing written about the vehicle in its natural habitat.Car & Driver cracks me up with their complete lack of comprehension of what these vehicles are for. Like, here is our in depth comparison of how these mountain bikes perform in the Tour De France.
...who cares? That's not the right tool for the job.
All the best stuff is coming out of people putting it up on YouTube for their own enjoyment. The Money only comes into play once they get popular enough.Magazine articles today are complete garbage. Nothing written about the vehicle in its natural habitat.
Jeeps that belong off road are tested on road.
BMW M3 which belongs on a road course or back roads is tested in An airport parking lot.
Great articles! Complete waste of time and money.
Bottom line: Bronco V6 beats Wrangler V6. Wrangler I4 beats Bronco I4.
If you want proper speed, the 392 is still the only game in town.
The world needs more diesels.Agree 100%!
Bronco V6 Vs Wrangler V6 are apples and oranges. One is forced induction and the other is naturally asperated. Like comparing a naturally asperated V8 to a forced induction V8. I was a Ford guy my whole life btw until they started shoving the Eco-Joke line down our throat's. I tried them and they are nothing more than Planned Obsolescence trash. I'll never own anything with an Eco-joke again.
Now if you believe everything you read, you are in for a world of hurt. The press is nothing but puppets to the highest bidder these days. It's like I've teleported to the book 1984 for people brainlessly regurgitate whatever they are told and question nothing. The media is promoting whatever the Manufacturers and Government are peddling regardless of reality, engineering, or science.
And yes the 392 is the only true performance off road machine (Raptor & TRX are strictly desert runners). Driving the 392 I get the nostalgic feeling I haven't experienced since selling my LS powered FJ45. Nothing sold today gives my that feeling. I put a '03 4.6 Terminator in my '68 Bronco to get that feeling. Ford completely missed the boat sticking to the Eco-joke. My friend that has had every Raptor model, can not stand his Eco-joke Raptor compared to his 6.2 Raptor.
I call BS. The one review they did the kid lied out of his rear, claiming the Bronco is roomier on the inside. I've been in both and the Bronco is on the Ranger chassis. It is a sardine can inside just like the Ranger. Our Gladiator and 392 has miles more room throughout the inside. The Jeep like the original icons Scouts, Broncos, and FJ40 are not built on a sub-compact chassis. The Bronco is closer in size to a Suzuki Samurai than a Wrangler. It's a really cool Bronco ii with a turbo charged lawn mower motor and EB styling cues.I believe it's coming tomorrow or the next.
I bet that Raptor is PITA to keep under control ... have controlled slideouts/drifts. Too front heavy and overall heavy.
