Ford Bronco Raptor - 2 Minute Review

Published October 23, 2023 by Elizabeth Jeneault

This is the most powerful street-legal Bronco model that Ford has ever made and so that sets it apart from the standard Bronco. And also, take a look at its massive 37” all-terrain tires on 17” alloy wheels. This Bronco Raptor has a ground clearance of 13.1” and it has strategically placed steel bash plates to protect it while off-roading.


The heavy-duty modular front bumper with rigid fog lamps has integrated end caps. There’s a standard Carbonized Gray hardtop that can be removed as it can with the standard Bronco and you can also remove the door panels for that open air feel. 


The rear has a unique design to it, the taillights are different from the standard Bronco and there’s exclusive Raptor badging. The swing tailgate has been reinforced.


Inside, rubberized flooring makes cleaning up any off-road mess a breeze. The steering wheel has a unique shape to it and it does feature the Raptor badge. You’ll also love the 12” fully digital instrument panel that’s customizable and the 12” center-stack touchscreen. A 360-degree camera with off-road spotter views is helpful. And you can choose from the seven different G.O.A.T. (or Goes Over Any Terrain) modes easily. It helps give you driving confidence. 


Ford developed the twin-turbo 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6 engine with specific Raptor-level tuning to meet Ford Performance standards. It makes 418-hp and 440 lb.-ft. of torque. The Bronco Raptor also has an even beefier suspension setup than the standard Bronco so you can get the best handle possible while off-roading. 


Recap and rating time now of this Bronco Raptor!


Exterior for me is a 10 this thing looks bad — but in a good way. Interior, I love the removable door panels and roof, 9. Performance we’ll rate a 10, this is your true performance Bronco model. Fuel economy is really what you’d expect with a brute off-road SUV, 7.5. Overall value we’ll rate a 9 and that results in an deal score of 91/100.
