      i'll be honest, the bronco looks much, much better than the new defender. speaking of retro suv's, how about the lada niva? the single longest-running suv in production in a single generation? eh, anyone? eh? oh... only me then...

    The only issue I have with the LR is the giant price tag and the boatload of issues (as reliable as my ex). I would say Bronco wins (but that will be determined later).

    Bronco fits the US market and Australia. You can do so much with it in open countries, and have it as your only car. Europe is simply less suitable for such a car, even as most people would love to have one. The new Defender is not really for off-roading. Not at that price and how it's built.



  • TomEnduro

    I vote for the old and real Defender (doors came off that as well, but even easier than the Bronco)

    You forgot the most important feature of the Land Rover, it comes with a reliability issues.

  • MIke

    I’m not a fan of ford vehicles....FORD - Found On Road Dead or Fuel Often Repair Daily or Fucked Over Rebuilt Dodge. But seriously, Jeep Wrangler vs Ford Bronco is a more “apples to apples comparison.

    Mat please stop advertising Ford🤣. You are very surprising because you are from UK and you advertise US cars. Btw we didn't enjoy the advertisement🤣

    The problem with all British made vehicles are they are overpriced and usually very unreliable. Land Rover, Range Rovers etc fall into this category especially the reliability bit. it's pretty hard to get 100K miles out of a British car without spending a fortune in maintenance, parts etc

    I find it ironic that the Bronco looks more similar to the original Defender than the new Defender

    I like the defender, but I prefer the Bronco. It also still has a manual and seems like it’s easier to fix.

    Bronco is off road while defender is a posers car. Try change size of wheels or tyres in defender and see what’s happen. Or drive in muddy road up hill and see what happens....

      @Erick Recinos more features means more comlications and more chances of unrelaibilty....but landrovers arent as unreliable as ppl velar is working perfectly for a year.................... i think old range rovers were not reliable but latest models are perfect....

    Ford looks great, but it's still too American. And the wheels? Why on earth are they so big? Likewise, with him, virtually no owner will jump over huge rocks and drive through the desert in Botswana. He's American exaggerated. It looks good, yes, but Land Rover is an everyday car with which you can go to the mountains and to the cottage. So my choice is clear.

    Forgive me for saying so (because yes LR was THE vehicle that got me interested in offroading but ...) the Ford Bronco is SUPERIOR in so many more ways: - 35"s - floor drain plugs - dash tacti-rail - hood treelimb deflectors / corner spotters / usable tiedowns Also ... you're kinda suggesting that removing the doors us tedious like in the Jeap ... on the Bronco it's a SINGLE tool-free hingebolt. Excellent video, keep up the good work ... ... PS, we make fun of your accents a lot too; it's all good!

    I think the bronco is a much closer to the original but I don't like how they have gone with the removable doors and copied jeep. Having said that, I wouldn't buy either

      @William Foster did the bronco originally have removable doors? I don't really see the purpose of removable doors, except the look at me value
