The Ford Bronco Raptor Has More Power Than Expected

How much power does the 2023 Ford Bronco Raptor have?

With the 2023 Ford Bronco Raptor, it’s not the size of the fender flares that matters. Instead, focus on how much horsepower and torque are on tap. The Bronco Raptor is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that cranks out 418 hp and 418 lb-ft of torque. 

The massive fender flares will help this beast fly. Plus, it’s not far behind the Ford F-150 Raptor. The truck uses a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine to provide 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. 

According to MotorTrend, the Bronco Raptor makes more torque than the 5.0-liter V8 engine in the Ford Mustang GT. 

The Bronco Raptor is expected to be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 5.0 seconds. The F-150 Raptor can reach 60 mph in about 5.6 seconds. 

But this amount of power is a little costly. The Bronco Raptor only gets an EPA-estimated 15 mpg in the city and up to 17 mpg on the highway.

How much does the Ford Bronco Raptor cost? 

The 2023 Ford Bronco Raptor starts at about $71,490. This is slightly more than the 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor, which begins at around $69,525. These prices are the MSRPs, so the destination fees and dealership markups are not included. 

But the Bronco Raptor may come with enough off-roading upgrades to be worth every penny. It includes a special long-travel suspension and rides on beefy 37-inch BFGoodrich KO2 all-terrain tires and 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels. 

The engine is paired with 10-speed SelecShift automatic transmission and a two-speed torque-on-demand four-wheel-drive system with a mechanical lock and an electronically locking rear differential. 

Fox 3.1 internal bypass semi-active dampers are separately tuned in the front and reward. Suspension height sensors and other sensors monitor terrain conditions to independently make proper adjustments multiple times per second. 

Plus, you can hear the Bronco roar thanks to the true dual exhaust system with active valves and near-equal pipe length for enhanced exhaust notes. The four exhaust modes include Normal, Sport, Baja, and Quiet. 

Does the 2023 Raptor have nice features?

The 2023 Ford Bronco Raptor is equipped with heavy-duty full vehicle steel bash plates to protect the undercarriage. Also, tow hooks in the front and rear come standard. Semi-float Dana 50 and Dana 44 AdvanTEK axles account for the extra width compared to the regular Bronco. 

An exclusive grille design with amber lighting and exaggerated fender flares provides a unique look. The signature LED headlights, Rigid LED fog lamps, mirror LED approach lamps, and LED spotlights are standard. 

The interior features marine-grade vinyl upholstery and rubberized flooring. You can upgrade to leather-trimmed seats, and the body panels and frameless doors are easy to remove. There are plenty of switches for custom equipment with 12-volt outlets nearby. 

The Bronco Raptor keeps getting better and better. We can’t wait to take the Raptor for a spin. We will continue providing the latest updates.
