Ford Bronco Warthog Spotted Alongside F-150 Raptor At Off-Road Park

Sponsored Links

We’re now only a matter of months away from seeing the 2021 Ford Bronco begin to populate our roads and off-road trails, as well as the arrival of the all-new, third-generation 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor. But this photo shared on Instagram gives us an even further look down the road, as it shows a 2023 Ford Bronco Warthog prototype alongside a current-gen F-150 Raptor at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in Southern California.

This is far from the first time we’ve seen a Ford Bronco Warthog prototype, as we’ve spied several of them in the last few months. But this is the first time we’ve gotten a good look at one in close proximity to a Ford F-150 of any kind. It gives us a good idea of just how tall and wide the Warthog is, as it measures up pretty well to the full-size pickup, even if it is shorter.

Then again, this shouldn’t come as a surprise, as the Ford Bronco Warthog is fitted with 17-inch Ford F-150 Raptor-like wheels and LT315/70R17 BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain T/A tires, as we’ve previously reported. The Warthog will also have a wider stance than regular Ford Bronco models and will use the same Fox Live Valve shock technology as the F-150 Raptor, in addition to a host of other suspension upgrades.

The Warthog is expected to be powered by the more potent version of Ford’s twin-turbo 3.0L EcoBoost V6 currently found in the Ford Explorer ST and Lincoln Aviator. In that guise, it is rated to produce 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque.

However, as we recently reported, a Warthog hybrid is also in the works, which is expected to be powered by the same 3.0L EcoBoost V6 and electric motor combination present in the Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring, which produces 494 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. All of these powerplants will be mated to Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission.

We’ll have much more on the Bronco Warthog soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Bronco news and around-the-clock Ford news coverage.

  1. We are so sick of the hype on The Bulbous Bronco with the big clown tires and removable doors. The Bronco SPORT will prevail because it just looks better and you can drive it anywhere without looking like some half-assed Mad Max road warrior. Thank you.

  2. Hard to say if the BS will “prevail” the Made in Mexico, soccer mom, 3 cylinder go cart engine, or the “upgraded” 4cylinder with all its known problems, may not be all that popular-once those that want the “look” of an off roader (but don’t actually go off road) buy one. The Bronco, isn’t in production, zero have been delivered, zero have purchased one, all the Fan Boys that howl about the broncos are just that fan boys!! I’d take them a little bit more seriously IF they had actually driven one, or maybe seen one in the distance, but as of now, zero production broncos have been delivered, this is fan boy hype.
