No, just iconic vehicles are just that. Iconic. They already pulled one over with the Mach E. Figured they would have learned from that backlash. Guess not. Also, Bronco Warthog sounds badass and more befitting that platform.

As far as your SVT point, most didn't say I have an SVT, they said Raptor. Much like the SVT Cobras, of which I have one, I don't say SVT Cobra, I say Cobra. I also have a Viper GTS and I never say GTS, I just say Viper. People know what that is. A Bronco and a Raptor are very diametrically opposed as to what they are designed to do.

Pretty easy to call a dealership and ask if they have an Raptors in stock, and not have to worry about parsing through different models with the same name.
The backlash on the Mach E was so bad that it took less than half a year to consistently outsell the real Mustang. I'm sure Ford sees that a Raptor Bronco will be a slightly lower price point to get more people to buy.

Thats not the point. People buy it because it is a good performance vehicle, and I doubt many say they have a Mustang. They say they have a Mach-E. I haven't talked to one Raptor person who doesn't think its stupid. Couple of Bronco people as well.

Again, do they have to add Broncos to Raptor assault? How about Rangers? If I hear about Raptor assault, and I own a Raptor should I not be allowed to go?

The Bronco will have it's own classes. I live part time in Moab and had dinner at Red Cliffs lodge where they have their own building. There were a bunch of them there and some were coming back from trails. I believe there are going to be 4 other places around the country where they are also going to hold the "class".

Yes, but that implies that owner's of the 'Bronco Raptor' will receive the same experience of every other Bronco Raptor, and learn nothing about their specific vehicle can do.

I think part of the appeal of Raptor Assault was that every Gen 2 Raptor essentially had the same capabilities. You would learn on a vehicle that could do all that your stock vehicle could. That's changing now. If you bought a Raptor 37 package, will you take a 37s class? If you buy a Bronco Raptor, will you take a Bronco Off-Roadeo course specific to your vehicle? In my opinion, it somewhat lessens the experience if you don't learn about what your specific vehicle can do, and I wouldn't want to spend much time on what the other trim/packages do either.
