2023 Ford Bronco Raptor Grille Design Confirmed Via Leaked Image

Ford Authority has spied the 2023 Ford Bronco Raptor (formerly known as the Ford Bronco Warthog) on multiple occasions to date. Ford Authority also exclusively reported that the Ford Bronco Raptor grille will boast the familiar “FORD” script back in May, as well as the fact that it will, in fact, join Ford’s off-road-focused Raptor family. Now, thanks to a leaked image acquired by Bronco6G, we’re also getting our first look at the Ford Bronco Raptor grille design.

The image, which also reveals the grille’s part number – 8200E – clearly confirms what Ford Authority previously reported – the fact that the Bronco Raptor’s front grille will indeed wear “FORD” script instead of “BRONCO,” as is the case with other Ford Bronco models. Additionally, we can clearly see that there is space allocated for the Raptor’s signature trio of amber lights.

As Ford Authority exclusively reported back in March, the Bronco Raptor will be powered by Ford’s 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. It will be joined by a hybrid model, expected to be powered by the same 3.0L EcoBoost V6 and electric motor combination present in the Aviator Grand Touring, where it produces 494 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. Both powerplants will be mated to Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission.

The Bronco Raptor will also feature the same types of upgrades already present on existing Raptor models like the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ford Ranger Raptor, including Fox Live Valve shock technology, 17-inch F-150 Raptor-like wheels, LT315/70R17 BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain T/A tires, a wider stance than the regular Bronco, unique front and rear fascias and bumper treatments, and higher ground clearance, all of which should make it a formidable off-road vehicle.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    That’s great news unfortunately it will not be available until 2027. That is based upon the delivery, or no delivery yet of the current model. The way this is going we may all get the mid cycle update model.
    I am awaiting any word on mine, playing the vicious circle between Ford and my dealer getting to be a poor joke.

    They keep teasing different possible options with out ever releasing the original. What a joke. I have been a Ford fan since birth but this is getting old.

    Might as well get a Jeep and be done with it!
