The Ford Bronco is sold in several trim levels, some of which are off-road oriented (Badlands and Wildtrak). Next year, the world will see the hardcore Raptor, targeting even more challenging routes. True, it will only go on sale in 2023.
The new video from Bronco Nation has proven to be a valuable source of information. It demonstrates how the Bronco Raptor tackles a purpose-built off-road track. The prototype appears to be powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine. The two most likely options are the 3-liter 400-horsepower from the Explorer ST or the 3.5-liter 450-horsepower from the F-150 Raptor.
The camouflage is a bit pointless as it is quite obvious that the car is much wider and taller than a regular SUV. Towards the end of the video, you will see the difference between the two. What really grabs attention is the Warthog decal. This is most likely an internal plant name.
This modification is expected to receive 37-inch tires, fender flares, underbody armor and an upgraded suspension that will allow you to go much further while traveling.
The manufacturer officially confirmed the release of the “charged” Raptor modification only at the end of this September. Then the general director of the brand, Jim Farley, posted on Twitter a short video featuring the future novelty. In it, you can see the emblem and the redesigned grille, which instead of the model name flaunts a large Ford wordmark.
