After a long wait and much speculation, Ford has finally officially confirmed the arrival of the popular Offroad Bronco in a sharp version of the Raptor.
The blue oval announced the arrival of a sharp Bronco in a short video, in which we can see only a darkened radiator grille, slightly embossed fender trims and then a rising layer of dust, which is evidently again indicating a lot of fun off the paved road.
We will have to wait for more information, after all, according to the video, the car should not arrive until 2022. Thanks to the alleged leak of information from the Ford dealer ordering system, which was recently pointed out by colleagues from Carscoops, a message appeared Raptor available directly in two trim levels.
The higher version should offer as standard equipment such as steering wheel heating, navigation, adaptive cruise control, audio system with 10 speakers, etc. However, much more expected is the information of the technology under the hood.
According to the most common speculations, the Bronco Raptor should receive a 3.0-liter EcoBoost six-cylinder fork with an output of 298 kW (406 hp) and 562 Nm of torque from the Ford Explorer ST model. Compared to the standard 2.7-liter six-cylinder, the Raptor could offer 52 kW (71 hp) more power, which is not entirely futile.
After all, it is necessary to realize that Bronco remains an orthodox offroad. So it will be interesting to see what modifications his chassis will go through and what the Raptor will like on the road, even in the most difficult terrain for which it was originally intended. According to some rumors, the Bronco Raptor will only arrive in a four-door version, and its body could be decorated with a completely new shade of orange paint, which also appeared in a short demonstration.
But we will have to wait for more information. The trailer published today was definitely not the last, and in the future Ford from the sharp Bronc will show us more. He has more than enough time for that.
