2022 Ford Bronco Raptor EPA Fuel Economy Ratings Revealed

After months of rumors, speculation, leaks, and spy photos, the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor was finally revealed back in January. Carryover 2021 Bronco reservation holders got first dibs on the high-performance off-roader with a deadline in late March ahead of the Bronco Raptor’s launch later this summer, alongside the also-new Bronco Everglades. What we didn’t know is what sort of fuel economy 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor owners could expect from their new vehicle. Now, the EPA has released its official estimates, and they’re pretty much what we expected them to be.

Highway MPG 16 17 17 18
Combined MPG 15 17 18 18

Powered by the twin-turbocharged Ford 3.0L V6 EcoBoost engine – as Ford Authority was the first to report back in 2020 – with a targeted output of at least 400 horsepower and riding on 37-inch tires, one would expect the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor to return worse fuel economy than any other Ford Bronco model, and that’s precisely the case. EPA estimates for the forthcoming model come in at 15 miles-per-gallon in the city, 16 on the highway, and 15 combined – just slightly worse than a Sasquatch Package-equipped Bronco with the turbocharged Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost at 17/18/18 with FoMoCo’s seven-speed manual or 18/17/18 with the automatic, as well as the twin-turbo Ford 2.7L V6 EcoBoost Sasquatch Bronco at 17/17/17.

Aside from its higher-performance powerplant and off-road goodies, the Bronco Raptor features an updated digital instrument cluster, though it also recently lost its standard side graphic and isn’t available with Ford’s new tube doors that are compatible with every other Bronco in they automaker’s lineup. The new model will feature a starting price of $69,995 when it launches in the coming months, as Ford Authority reported in January.

    Imagine what the Raptor R gas mileage is going to be? I will only be able to goto the car show and home.

    With mileage like that, no wonder people are turning to hybrids, PHEVs, and EVs.

    A number of YouTube channels that feature Broncos including TFL, All Terrain Nation and Bronco Wild Outdoors have gotten better highway and overall mileage on their Sasquatch Broncos than the EPA ratings above, so I expect Raptor MPG ratings are worse case values. Even so, they
