Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Highlander than in the Ford Bronco, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Bronco will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Highlander.

Convenience
With the Toyota Highlander, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Bronco, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Bronco will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Highlander. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Bronco is much higher than that for the Toyota Highlander.

Dimensions
The Ford Bronco is about the same width as the Toyota Highlander. If you go with the Ford Bronco, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Highlander.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Highlander is clearly the choice over the Ford Bronco for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Bronco has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Highlander.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Bronco transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota Highlander.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Ford Bronco seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Highlander. The Ford Bronco has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota Highlander.

Warranty
The Ford Bronco comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Highlander.
