The Ford Bronco is already legendary for its off-road prowess. Now, with the debut of the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor, the off-road capabilities of the Bronco go to an entirely new level. Ford already gave the Raptor treatment to the F-150 full-size pickup truck and will do the same to the Ranger midsize pickup truck as well. With the Bronco Raptor, off-road enthusiasts can enjoy Raptor capabilities with an SUV. Find out the release date, price, and specs of the first-ever 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor.

2022 Ford Bronco Raptor specs: Engine, towing, and off-road features
All 2022 Bronco Raptor models are powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 engine. It’s a version of a similar engine that’s in the high-performance Ford Explorer ST SUV. Mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, the twin-turbo V-6 engine produces over 400 hp. Also, the Bronco Raptor can tow up to 4,500 pounds.
With its advanced four-wheel drive system and selectable G.O.A.T (Goes Over Any Type of Terrain) modes, the Bronco Raptor can head off the beaten path with ease. To handle the rigors of off-road use, the Bronco Raptor features a HOSS 4.0 race-ready suspension system and a fully-boxed, high-strength steel frame. Additional off-road features include beefy 37-inch all-terrain tires and Fox adaptive dampers.
Exterior and interior features of the 2022 Bronco Raptor
The 2022 Bronco Raptor has distinctive exterior design features that set it apart from the standard Bronco model. In addition to the aforementioned 37-inch tires, this includes large fender flares, a unique grille design, and amber lighting elements. The Bronco Raptor also has a steel bumper with a large steel bash plate, Rigid LED foglights, and integrated tow hooks.
Despite its enhanced off-road capabilities, the Bronco Raptor shares the same interior dimensions as the standard Bronco model. Notable interior features and technologies offered for the Bronco Raptor include:
