Ford Bronco Raptor: Coming 2022
Excitement grows for the upcoming Bronco Raptor
The 2023 Ford Bronco Raptor, the high-performance companion to the new Bronco, is the most eagerly awaited vehicle in the automotive world. With retro-themed aesthetics and detachable body pieces, it’ll follow the same principle as the standard Bronco, but with even more appealing improvements.
A 450-horsepower twin-turbo V6 is expected, as is a stiffer and more flexible suspension as well as an array of off-road-friendly features like 37-inch tires.
Ford has remained tight-lipped about the impending Bronco Raptor’s specifications, including its price. However, given the vehicle’s extensive list of performance enhancements, we expect it to command a higher price. As a result, it will cost more than the $60,800 starting price of the 2021 Ford Bronco First Edition. When it goes on sale, we expect the Raptor to start at roughly $65,000 when it arrives in new car dealerships in Itasca.
Adaptive dampers and 37-inch tires
If the Bronco Raptor details we expect are correct, the Sasquatch package will look puny in comparison. Because of its 35-inch tires and Bilstein dampers, the Raptor will ride higher than a typical SUV, even Sasquatch Broncos.
Adaptive dampers from the F-150 Raptor and 37-inch BFGoodrich K02 tires can be installed in the Raptors as an option. The Bronco Raptor appears to have thicker axles and a rear anti-roll bar. The Bronco Raptor will be able to go through rough terrain at high speeds with this set-up.
The inside and overall dimensions will be the same between the Bronco Raptor and the normal Bronco. Rubberized flooring, marine-grade vinyl upholstery, and auxiliary toggles should all be options.
Driver-assistance technology will likely be the same as on the standard Bronco, including equipment that makes low-speed rock crawling and driving on trails a lot easier. Forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking are likely options, as are lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assistance, as well as blind-spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alert.
Before the 2022 model arrives in new car dealerships near Dallas, Ford is expected to steadily divulge more information about the impending high-performance Bronco model. Because the F-150 Raptor starts at a little over $65,000, prices should be higher than the $62,605 beginning price of the fully-loaded First Edition four-door Bronco model with leather seats.

Why choose the Ford Bronco?
The standard Bronco was designed not just to be another performance SUV but to dominate the market. Sharp drops and steep inclines are no match for the Bronco, as it has the biggest break-over in its class. It has a whopping 29-degree break-over angle and a maximum departure angle of 37.2 degrees.
What about ground clearance? Again, the Bronco mops the floor with the competition with the best ground clearance in its class. It’s close between the two-door model and the four-door model, as they have 11.6 and 11.5 inches of ground clearance, respectively, when you put the 35-inch tires on. Of course, as discussed above, if you choose a Bronco Raptor you’ll be getting even more ground clearance if you equip the 37-inch tires.
Do you plan to drive your Bronco through water? We’re embarrassing the competition now, as once again, the Bronco is best in class. The air intake is high mounted, and you can ford up to 33.5 inches with the Sasquatch package. Even without the Sasquatch package, a Bronco can tackle 31.5 inches of water without issue, and the Raptor will be even stronger in this regard.
The powertrains you can choose on the Bronco also reflect its performance orientation. The 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine has the highest amount of power for a six-cylinder in its class—415 pounds per foot of torque and 330 horsepower. Choose the 2.3 four-cylinder, and you get the most powerful four-cylinder in the class with 325 pounds per foot of torque and 300 horsepower.
The Ford Bronco is also the only class to offer a seven-speed manual transmission or a 10-speed automatic transmission. With impressive low gears that help you stay within the engine’s power band, the Ford Bronco is the ideal off-roader for Texas roads. The Bronco Raptor is just set to eclipse it, that’s all.
