Leaked Data Confirms The Ford Bronco Raptor’s Existence @ Top Speed

Overview



For the better part of a decade now, you’ve seen the Raptor colors in all of the F-150’s marketing materials. Wouldn’t it look great on the Ford Bronco? A user of the Bronco 6G forum was searching through Ford’s ordering system when he discovered proof that a Bronco Raptor would indeed be available, come 2022.

Wouldn’t Ford be leaving a lot of money on the table if it doesn’t put out a Raptorized Bronco? Well, it was only a matter of time before the Blue Oval gave us one.

According to the person who posted this information, the Bronco Raptor will only be available as a four-door. This is consistent with the spy shots of the vehicle, which are yet to be spotted in the two-door form.

What do we know about the upcoming Bronco Raptor?

According to the leaked ordering system record, the forthcoming Bronco Raptor would be available in two trim levels: 373 A (Basic) and 374 A (Higher-equipped) Lux Package. The user later updated their initial post to say that the upgraded trim will also include adaptive cruise control, a heated steering wheel and a wireless charging pad. Unfortunately, no information on the powertrain was provided with this listing. However, according to a May report from Ford Authority, the Bronco Raptor will most likely be powered by the same 3.0 liter Ecoboost V-6 engine that produces 400-horsepower in the Ford Explorer ST.

The upcoming Bronco Raptor will include changes to the suspension, as found on the F-150 Raptor. Spy shots of the Bronco Raptor also reveal the upcoming SUV with massive fender flares and shorter bumpers when compared to the standard Bronco which allows for increased approach and departure angles. Skid plates are used to safeguard critical mechanical components. Expect other upgrades like Fox shocks, BFGoodrich KO2 tires, and, of course, a higher ride height, courtesy of the suspension lift.

When will it be out?

For those of you hoping for the Detroit giant to confirm a more potent Ford Bronco Raptor, well it looks like your wait is finally over. Should this new Bronco Raptor arrive for the 2022 model year, expect sales to begin within the first half of next year, if not sooner. Do note that, because Ford has such a large backlog of orders for the regular Bronco, adding more demand may pose even more delays.
