Drag Race: Ford Bronco and Bronco Raptor vs. Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392

Drag Race: Ford Bronco and Bronco Raptor vs. Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 1




American Ford Bronco and Jeep Wrangler four-wheel drives are more often seen in cross-country races than in asphalt races, but this did not prevent journalists from The Fast Lane Car channel from bringing two models of SUVs from two brands in straight-line races. Moreover, Ford’s colors were defended by two different modifications at once — the basic Bronco and the “charged” Bronco Raptor — while Jeep was supported by a single Wrangler Rubicon 392. And the battle turned out to be very interesting!

The weakest in this competition was the Ford Bronco in the performance of the First Edition, which is equipped with a 2.7-liter V6 engine with 330 horsepower, while the Raptor version has a more impressive arsenal under the hood — a 3.0-liter EcoBoost turbo engine producing 418 horsepower.

On the side of the rival in the face of the Jeep Wrangler 392 is the iconic V8 engine for American cars, namely the 6.4—liter atmospheric Hemi, which produces 470 horsepower.

To check which of the cars turned out to be better suited for straight-line races, the organizers of the unusual race drove the cars into the mountains of Colorado, which reduced the power of the engines due to thin air. But it did not affect the results of drag racing.
