I was so excited to see this as soon as I started my (extremely late) lunch break.

My disappointment that I won’t be able to watch it until after my shift is immeasurable :ROFLMAO:

It's more footage of the wrapped Raptor. Some things to note though, we were able to see some better shots of the suspension components and a size comparison with a stock OBX.

Man that thing looks smooth! It will be very interesting to see how it compares to the long travel kit that Loren Healy teased yesterday.BD84A301-3024-42CC-AE47-58946903745D.jpeg

Also, I personally prefer the base headlights over the fancy ones. But those full orange ones look MEAN.

Wow - suspension, axles, body flares & stance look phenomenal. I think I may need to add one to my stable!

I think the Bronco Raptor will be a hit, so long as they're not all put in cold storage for resale at a later date. We need to see these things in the wild!

I bet you will need pretty deep pockets for one of those.

I though I had deep pockets once, turns out I just had a really big hole.

Wow, I have to ask, what is the purpose of this vehicle?

It looks good. It sounds good. It's big. Bigger is better. Right?

Well, not really. At some point too big/too wide is too big/too wide for the application. The Bronco is ALREADY a big truck. This Bronco Raptor concept is HUGE. I couldn't even wheel this out on the east coast, where I live. It wouldn't fit on any of the serpentine trails. At all! You could get away with it in the desert as a Desert Runner, sure. And a fair number of trails out west. But so could the normal Bronco. As soon as it gets even a little tight, this thing is way too wide.

Is this just an encroachment on the Raptor? I think it's a cool truck, but this is a Bronco, right? How many Jeeps OR Broncos are really designed for desert running? It seems to miss the mark of the vehicle's prime function.

I have zero interest in high speed desert running. I live on the east coast and I like rock crawling. That's what Jeeps are made for. That's what the Bronco is supposed to compete with.

As a result I'm sort of anticipating the Raptor Bronco to be sort of a mall crawler. Looks and sounds great, is decent off the line, and all of that, but functionally limited. I just can't figure out how and why I would ever use this vehicle as opposed to the normal Bronco.

Most people won't be able to afford the Raptor Bronco probably. It probably is designed for the baja races not rock climbing like you said. It is cool but it definitely isn't for everyone.
Wildtrak, hot pepper red, mic, Lux, tow...Totally worth it!!

Thanks for the reply. I agree with you. If you're Ford, why do this if you already build the Raptor? I'm sort of confused about the whole product offering.

A lot of times they build those with some crazy features that will eventually trickle down to the "regular" Bronco.

I suspect this is pretty much a "brand builder" and nothing more. I don't think there will ever be one on a showroom floor. If so, not for very long. So, it's not much of a showroom traffic builder. It's a "we could do this so we did it" statement. I think it's just to help re-establish the Bronco in the hive mind, you know, get it back on the proverbial map. I seriously doubt you're going to see a glut of these monsters on the highway. It's more of a "would you look at that?" sort of thing. An iconic slam dunk for the marketing team at Ford, without question.
