Ford Confirms The Bronco Raptor Performance SUV Will Arrive Next Year

Sep 21, 2021

You knew this was coming. Ford already has a monster hit on their hands with the new Bronco, as the recently-revived icon is good-looking, off-road capable, and about as on-trend for 2021 as a vehicle can get. But the Bronco is about to get even more desirable next year, as Ford has just confirmed that a Bronco Raptor will be arriving in 2022.

So, what do we know about the Ford Bronco Raptor? Almost nothing. Ford has yet to reveal any details save for an extremely brief teaser video that shows a quick glimpse of part of the grille and headlight assembly and not much else. From this brief tease, we can surmise that the Raptor will definitely have a distinct look from the rest of the Bronco lineup. The bolder and more aggressive grille looks more like the one seen on the F-150 Raptor than on other Broncos, with “FORD” replacing “BRONCO” for the text and a wide honeycomb pattern stretching all the way to the headlights. The headlights themselves appear to use orange LED for the entire daytime running lamps rather than the standard bright white, and the fender flares look larger and more angular. Outside of that, we can’t really determine any details about the Bronco Raptor, but we’re pretty confident that it will be quite fast. The F-150 Raptor uses a twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine that puts out 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque, numbers that would make the Bronco Raptor quite competitive against the top-spec Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 and its 470 horsepower/470 lb.-ft. of torque.

Ford has given no specific release date for the Bronco Raptor outside of confirming that it will arrive next year, but we certainly expect the brand to release more details about the super SUV at some point before then.
