Best Enduro for a bit of everything?

Currently riding a Bronson C 2015, I love it but think it’s time for a upgrade. It takes a hammering as I’m 95kg 6’2” and a pretty rough rider.

Thinking of going to a enduro for a bit more travel but worried I’m going to lose the flexibility of the Bronson?

I like to ride up, traverse, then smash the park and also partial to the odd weekend 100km overnighter...

Stay with / upgrade the Bronson? Increase its travel?

Park smashing and 100km overnighters seem like opposite ends of the spectrum, any bike that can do both is going to compromise one or the other pretty heavily. I think for me the really big change to bikes from 2015 is the steepness of the seatposts and other new geo improvements, which really tend to make capable bikes climb a whole lot better. Are you locked into 27.5? The new Nomad could be a great call but I guess it's not going to climb as well as the new Bronson. Other bikes I'd be looking at would be the new Specialized Enduro and the new Evil Wreckoning which sound like they climb really well for the travel.
