2021 Ford F-150 Raptor, Bronco To Share One Wheel Design

Sponsored

The pictures that we’ve seen of the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor thus far show a wheel design that’s unique to the all-new, third-generation model. However, Ford Authority has learned from sources familiar with Ford’s product plans that the new Raptor will also share another wheel design with the 2021 Ford Bronco, albeit with some minor changes.

2021 Ford Bronco Wheels – 17-inch Black High Gloss-Painted Aluminum, with Warm Alloy Beauty Ring Beadlock Capable

The wheel in question is the 17-inch black high-gloss painted aluminum, beadlock-capable wheels that come standard with the Sasquatch Package, as well as the Wildtrak and First Edition trims, which use the same design, but feature gloss black-painted beauty rings and centers. However, the wheel will look a little different when it arrives for the 2021 F-150 Raptor.

Unfortunately, we don’t yet have pictures of this new Raptor wheel, but we do know that it will replace the warm alloy outer beauty ring present on the Ford Bronco with a silver one, and the Raptor version of the wheel will also feature beadlocks across the entire circumference of the wheel – up to two or three times as many as what’s available on the Bronco.

In addition to this wheel design and the one we’ve seen in press photos of the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor, the rugged off-road pickup will also be available with either 35-inch or, for the first time, 37-inch, specially-designed BFGoodrich all-terrain T/A K02 tires.

The 2021 F-150 Raptor is available exclusively in SuperCrew configuration, as Ford Authority previously reported, and is equipped with Ford’s third-generation 3.5L EcoBoost V6 with state-of-the-art turbos, a 10.5:1 compression ratio, and new high-power fans in the cooling system. Ford has not yet released final power figures for the new engine, but we expect it to trump the previous gen’s 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque.

The EcoBoost powerplant is mated to Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission, which has been upgraded with next-generation controls and is bolted to a torque-on-demand transfer case. An electronic locking rear differential is standard, while a Torsen front limited-slip differential is available as an option.

    So, they’re sharing a design, but different. Got it.

    The bronco Sasquatch wheels are a completely different style to the 2 options that will be available on the raptor. Not to mention they are a different bolt pattern. The rings are likely interchangeable but will not look right due to different style elements. So no, the raptor and bronco don’t share a wheels design. Must a be a slow news day.
