2023 Ford Bronco Raptor Images Revealed

2023 Ford Bronco Raptor Images Revealed

We think it’s fair to say the Ford Bronco has taken the off road scene by storm. It’s a capable SUV and one of the most popular around right now. If there weren’t enough reasons to want this new Ford, having a Raptor version, definitely ups the need factor!

 

There have been hints of a 2023 Ford Bronco Raptor for a while but nothing concrete. That is until The Bronco Nation managed to get some ‘official’ images.

 

2023 Ford Bronco Raptor

 

As you can see from the image, the Bronco Raptor isn’t hiding what it’s got. Minimal camouflage shows us the wider stance, taller ride height, flared fenders and meaner looking underbody.

 

It’s a good looking variant with a meaner stance and specific off road wheels and tires.

 

I can’t help thinking this version looks a little too much like the Wrangler though. Squared off upper body, bold on fenders and squared-off side mirrors. It’s still a Bronco sure, but it’s veering a little into Jeep territory.

 

That aside, the 2023 Ford Bronco Raptor was seen testing after SEMA in the US and looked to be having a blast!

 

Under the camouflage

 

Nothing has been confirmed around engine and mechanicals but rumour has it that the Raptor will come up an upgraded 2.7-litre EcoBoost V6 engine to deliver the power.

 

The current version of that motor delivers around 310 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, which is plenty enough for this size vehicle. We wouldn’t be surprised if this version delivered a little more than that though.

 

It will very likely use Ford’s favourite 10 speed automatic transmission to drive all wheels.

 

We also see some burlier metalwork under the front fascia, presumably a skid plate and extra protection for the engine and sump. The lights at the rear look slightly different too.

 

The black wheels and 37-inch BFGoodrich K02 all-terrain tires may be placeholders for what comes for real, but they do look the part. They are known to deliver superb levels of grip in the dirt with decent road manners should could work perfectly.

 

As for the interior, we know very little about it. To be honest, that’s not where the Raptor shines so we’ll probably put up with anything as long as it’s comfortable.

 

That’s about all we know, or think we know, about the 2023 Ford Bronco Raptor so far. The rest is pure speculation, even The Bronco Nation don’t have much else to tell us.

 

The 2023 Ford Bronco Raptor is expected in the middle of 2022, so we don’t have that long to wait until we learn more.
