So, Ford announced the Bronco Raptor for 2022, any thoughts on what this will do to the crazy Raptor market? Anyone looking to trade in their newly found Gen 3 Raptor for a Bronco Raptor, haaaaaaaaa? Can only imagine how bat-****-crazy the Bronco market will be over a Raptor variant, when they can’t even roll out the 100 other variants that seem to be sitting in a cornfield somewhere waiting on a chip with leaky tops.

In all honesty how much different is it going to be compared to say a Badlands/Wildtrak mashup? I guess they're going to replace the 2.7 L with the 3.5? Add the Fox suspension? Throw some Raptor branding and call it a day?
my thoughts exactly--im guessing it will be exactly that with 37s and wider fender flares. im guessing starting msrp just under raptor

I wouldn’t count on the 3.5. I doubt they want this thing stepping on the actual Raptor’s toes. I anticipate the 3.0 from the Aviator/Explorer ST. But that would necessitate a new transmission since the 10-speed in the current Bronco is nearly maxed out with the 2.7 torque.
I would not be shocked if they just drive this as special colors and all suspension with some interior bits thown in for a $30,000 upcharge over a base model. So yeah, $60K for openers if it has a 2.7. $65K if it gets more firepower.

Ford has never half assed the Raptor, what makes yall think they'll half *** this? The Raptor has a different/more reinforced frame over the F-150. Wouldn't it be safe to assume they are doing the same to Bronco?

I hope the Raptor Bronco is epic. Also hope they do more in the engine department. Also drove a 2.7L Bronco with 37's and was underwhelming in the power department.
