Over the years, Ford has produced two names that have been synonymous with off-road performance, and now they will become one. Ford’s all new Bronco Raptor is built for desert running and boulder crawling, and will be the most off road capable version that either of the two names have ever seen.
The 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor, is the newest addition of the Bronco outdoor brand of Built Wild SUVs, and debuts today as the most powerful street-legal Bronco ever, and the world’s first Ultra4 Racing-inspired SUV. Ford Performance, the same team that produces the F-150 Raptor, designed and engineered Bronco Raptor as a calling to hardcore off-road enthusiasts.
Under the hood the new Bronco Raptor will have a Raptor-exclusive twin-turbo EcoBoost engine targeted to deliver over 400 horsepower, a Raptor HOSS 4.0 race-ready suspension system, standard 37-inch all-terrain tires, and specific Raptor-level tuning for highway-speed desert-dune conquering and Baja rock-crawling.
Bronco Raptor is equipped with elite off-road technology and hardware. Ultra4 Racing is the epitome of grueling off-road competition, featuring demanding races such as the famed King of the Hammers in the Johnson Valley in California, where Bronco Raptor will be on display on Feb. 3. Ford and Bronco will continue as the official truck and SUV of the Ultra4 series.
With the addition of Bronco Raptor, Ford once again expands its Raptor high-performance off-road vehicle franchise, which also includes F-150 Raptor for North America and Ranger Raptor for global markets.
“Raptor is the apex of our off-road lineup and is now a full lineup with race proven content and design that you can’t get from anyone else,” said Jim Farley, chief executive officer, Ford Motor Company. “Only Ford could create a Bronco Raptor.”
Beyond the Raptor family, Ford offers an unmatched variety of additional on- and off-road high-performance and specialty performance vehicles, from Mustang Shelby GT500, the pinnacle of Mustang street performance, to the ST lineup of cars and SUVs, to the Tremor family of F-Series and Ranger tough and work-capable off-road trucks.
