Ford Bronco Raptor Will Be Revealed On January 24th

Sponsored

The Ford Bronco Raptor has been teased by Ford extensively over the past several weeks, adding to the many times prototypes of the rugged, high-performance off-roader have been spotted by Ford Authority spies. The automaker previously confirmed that the Ford Bronco Raptor would be revealed in Q1 of 2022 ahead of its launch this summer, and now, it has announced that we won’t have to wait much longer to see this new variant in the flesh, as it will be unveiled on Monday, January 24th at 6 am EST.

Over the past several months, Ford Authority has revealed a number of exclusive details about the Bronco Raptor, including the fact that it will be powered by Ford’s 3.0L EcoBoost V6, currently found in the Ford Explorer ST and Lincoln Aviator. The Bronco Raptor will also utilize an active exhaust – like the Ford Mustang, Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, and Ford F-150 Raptor – and also features a true dual pipe setup with a tucked-under, dual-tip outlet on the driver’s side of the SUV to protect it from off-road obstacles.

In terms of size, the Bronco Raptor is significantly wider than any other Bronco, including Sasquatch-equipped models, and features massive fender flares that help cover up equally large 37×12.50R17LT BFGoodrich KO2 tires wrapped around beadlock-capable wheels. Other unique features include the Raptor’s “FORD” script front grille with three amber lights, similar to what’s found on the F-150 Raptor, as well as vents located in the front fenders.

The high-performance Bronco Raptor rides noticeably higher than any other Bronco, courtesy of the aforementioned taller tires and a host of suspension upgrades that include Fox shocks, a Raptor branded rear differential cover, a reinforced steering rack, and beefy lower control arms. A set of high-clearance running boards help occupants enter and exit the tall-riding SUV as well.

We’ll be on hand for the Bronco Raptor’s reveal next week, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Bronco news and non-stop Ford news coverage.

    Why am I seeing Broncos on used car lots? Just in my area I have seen six Broncos on independent lots, not dealerships. Are these repos or dissatisfied customers?

      And some are headed to auction, with minor, non-salvage damage. That makes no sense, either. Bet some customers got wrapped up in all the hype (hopefully, manufacturers will learn a lesson, but I’ll bet not) and overshot, with BOTH Bronco variants, including the Sport.

        Or you can just make up reasons and run off with that.

        Look at forums, people being offered thousands more than they paid by Vroom and other similar sites. Naturally some people are going to take a multi-thousand dollar payday and wait a year or two and buy again when the fever calms down.

      Because people are being offered much more than they paid for it, assuming the dealer honored MSRP.

      Same thing happening with the Maverick. That’s why you see used Mavericks with 1,070 miles and $40k+ price tag when a brand new equivalent costs $26k. It’s a crazy, crazy world out there.
