Defender vs. Bronco: Durability

Not only is the Defender more powerful, but between the Land Rover Defender vs. Ford Bronco, the Land Rover also has the edge when it comes to construction. The Land Rover Defender is crafted off of a unibody platform – which makes it much more rugged and durable than the body-on-frame platform of the Ford Bronco. This also helps to give the Defender its exceptional capabilities – including a 8,201-pound towing capacity that is over twice as powerful as the Bronco!

Defender vs. Bronco: Size

What about a Land Rover Defender vs. Ford Bronco size comparison? Some Aurora think that the Ford SUV looks like a Range Rover, and while both can seat five passengers, the Defender offers much more versatility. The Defender 90 can be equipped with either 5 or 6 seats, while the Defender 110 can seat up to 7.
