This is the new Ford Bronco Raptor, the most powerful Bronco ever made.

Not only is it the most powerful Bronco ever, it’s also the meanest-looking.

Ford has also planted Easter Eggs in every corner.

At the front, you’ve got a new massive Ford grille and new custom orange headlamps designed exclusively for this model.

It’s also got special fog lights and off-roading lights.

It is actually illegal to use them on a road, which is why Ford fitted a cap to cover them when you’re not on sand, dirt, mud or snow.


In order to make it off-road-ready, Ford also added custom-made side steps and bolted-in fender extensions.

And if you’re in the mood of a little Dakar-style rally in the desert, you’ll be happy to know that the doors are removable, as is the roof.

It’s so easy, it only took us about 30 seconds to do it.

And probably a few attempts but we’ll gloss over that.

The wheels are massive, measuring 37 inches, and because they’re so big, Ford decided to fit a camera on the spare wheel and extend the rear headlights for extra safety.

Obviously, you also get parking assist and blind spot monitors.

Ford ‘planted’ several Easter Eggs to make this car feel even more special.

Two of them are in the trunk.

There’s a secret compartment under the floor and a ‘Raptor’ logo that you can only read in reverse.

Why? That’s because Ford wants the driver to be able to read it from the rear view mirror when they’re at the wheel.

Then you’ve got four dates printed on the side of the hood vents, one for each year Bronco won the Baja desert race.

Last but not least, there are three miniaturized silhouettes representing the history of the Bronco above the fuel filler cap.

The cabin was also upgraded with the addition of a full cage roll bar.

The seats are upholstered using a combination of vynil and leather, and decorated with what Ford calls ‘Code Orange’ accents.

The instrument cluster is now completely digital, as of course is the 12-inch infotainment screen located on the dashboard.

On the center console, you’ll find a drive mode selector, which includes a driving mode called ‘G.O.A.T’.

Ford says this stands for ‘Goes Over All Terrain’, but we know what it truly stands for.

Greatest Of All Time.

Ford Bronco Raptor Power

The Ford Bronco Raptor is powered by a twin-turbo V6 that puts out 418 hp.

It does 0 to 60 mph (100 km/h) in 5.6 seconds and it can do that on any surface and terrain.

More to the point, it can tow up to 4,600 lbs (2,040 kg).


Pricing for the Ford Bronco Raptor starts at around $70,000.
