Ford Bronco Raptor spied in the wild

Ford Bronco Raptor spied in the wild

The paint isn’t even dry on the first production Bronco yet and Ford is already planning different models. That includes a much anticipated Ford Bronco Raptor version, which is what we think is in the image.

The image shows a more aggressive Bronco with higher ground clearance, what look like a wider chassis and distinct wheel arches. There also sees to be some meaty BF Goodrich tires and a chunkier rear differential.

You cannot see much else because of the camouflage but what you can see, looks rugged and definitely upgraded from stock. You can see more images here.

If this is a Raptor spied in the wild, it’s still very early days yet so don’t expect to see it at dealerships anytime soon. We’ll let you know when we know more.

2021 Ford Bronco

The 2021 Ford Bronco is a fresh take on an old design and proves that innovation isn’t dead yet in this world of vanilla crossovers. While this is a brand new vehicle, there is more than a respectful nod to its predecessors and there is more than a tip of the hat to the original design.

It’s a rugged, yet friendly looking SUV. It has rounded edges, mostly flat panels, those round headlights and an accessible profile that hints at its capability while welcoming you inside. It’s a great look that is going to win fans.

Under the hood

Under the hood are two engine options for now. A 2.3-litre turbocharged four cylinder that delivers 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. There is also a 2.7-litre V6 that delivers 310 and 400 lb-ft of torque. Both will use the 10 speed automatic from Ford or a six speed manual.

Presumably the Ford Bronco Raptor will bring another engine to the party but we don’t know what it is yet.

G.O.A.T.

Ford’s G.O.A.T. stands for Go Over Any Terrain. This will apply to the Badlands and Wildtrak trims which will feature off road tires, front and rear locking differentials, different driving modes, including off road modes and Trail Turn Assist. All will help the Bronco go places other SUVs cannot go.

The 2021 Ford Bronco will also feature Ford CoPilot360 technology which includes forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control. Some will be standard others will be options depending on the trim.

Talking of trims, there will be seven in all. The First Edition, Sasquatch, base, Bend Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Wildtrak and Badlands. Each will come with a huge range of accessories.
