This video comes from Hagerty on YouTube. The host has the vehicles ready. However, for the first round, he performed an all-American drag race between the Bronco Raptor and Wrangler 392. As soon as the drivers press the accelerator pedals, the red Wrangler zooms ahead with a thump. It was clear from the beginning that the Bronco wouldn’t be able to catch up.

Now I must admit this was one of the most exciting drag races I have come across recently. Most car experts don’t generally drag race bulky SUVs. Still, with the kind of specifications these SUVs carry, it makes sense to test the performances out on a drag strip. Looking at this video, these vehicles didn’t disappoint. To start with, the Bronco might have performed the worst in this race, but its off-roading prowess is what it is known for. Then, the Wrangler took everyone by surprise. It is among the most capable and rugged hardcore off-roaders on the planet. Still, what it was able to achieve in this race is commendable. Finally, the G-Wagon just destroyed the competition with its twin-turbo V8. It is insane to think that it almost even decimated the iconic Lamborghini Gallardo in a drag race. But that just goes to show the level of German engineering. We hope you enjoyed this drag race between the Bronco, G-Wagon, Wrangler, Defender and Gallardo.
