Ford Bronco 2-Door Luggage Test: How Much Cargo Space?

The four-door Bronco has already aced its luggage test, indicating it can hold more bags than its arch-rival, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. More than that, it freed up my garage full of stuff and still had room for its two front roof panels.

OK, so what about the two-door Bronco? Great question, what am I here for. On paper, the Ford Bronco 2-Door has 22.4 cubic feet of space behind the back seat, which is numerically similar to a subcompact SUV, but the space is much boxier and has more height and less than a typical subcompact (or midcompact) Provides depth. , Talking of which, the Ford Bronco Sport belongs to that segment. I’ll also show you how the baby Bronco luggage test compares to the big two-door Bronco.

Here’s what you have to work with there. For some reason, I didn’t take the picture with the roof panel bag removed. But you get to see how much space they take up. I’ll come back to those soon.

Here’s the four-door and Bronco Sport for comparison.

Now, let’s move on to the bags. As with every piece of baggage I test, I use two medium-sized roller suitcases that need to be checked in at the airport (26 inches long, 16 wide, 11 deep), two roll- on suitcases that barely fit in overhead (24L x 15W x 10D), and a small roll-board that fits easily (23L x 15W x 10D). I also include my wife’s fancy overnight bag to make things a little better (21L x 12W x 12D).

That would be all but the fancy bag. You can see it was a very tight fit, and I’m stretching the rules a little bit with how high that black bag is. Although the seat backs and headrests were preventing it from flying forward, the referee would allow it. Obviously, there’s still some room left over if a fancy bag won’t fit in it.

So yes, it is indeed the equivalent of a subcompact SUV.

The four-door Bronco fits all standard bags and a 38-quart cooler, a blue duffel bag, a fold-up hiking backpack (the green thing), and two roof panels. The Bronco Sport fits all bags as well as a Graco Pack N Play (the brown thing at upper left) and an Extra Small backpack (the black at upper left).

Now, onto the other odds and ends.

Those roof panel bags have pictures showing what panels it is for, and are helpful in conceptualizing where they will fit inside.

Maybe it’s just me, but I couldn’t fit them in that space. I mean, they fit-ish there, but look how he looked.

I fit them this way because there’s a strong metal clip on the bottom that attaches to a hook in the floor, and then a strap that goes around the roll bar. Again, that’s the conclusion I came to, I should have been given the diagram and the hook/mounting points. Am I totally out here for lunch? (It’s since been suggested to me that the upper strap should go around the headrest, although I’m not quite sure how).

Either way, they were actually safe, protected from damage and had some space to spare.

Finally, this is where the jack is, as well as a small bin for just about anything.
