That’s how fierce the rivalry between these two makes and models has become over the years. It’s as if they have dominated the 4×4 off-road automotive space, and the rivalry continues to this very day.

There’s no surprise then that among off-road enthusiasts, there’s been a tremendous amount of anticipation and excitement over the release of the 2021 Ford Bronco.

For this year, they will release the two Bronco models. The Bronco main model and the Bronco Sport.
