When the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor was revealed back in February, the company wasn’t yet ready to reveal the full powertrain specs for the super SUV. Instead, we were just told that it would have at least 400 horsepower. But now, Ford CEO Jim Farley has revealed on Twitter that the Bronco Raptor’s output is 418 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque.
Ford Bronco Raptor: Details
That output comes from the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 found under the hood and is a significant step up from the next engine option down the Bronco line, the 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 which makes 330 ponies and 415 lb-ft of torque. What’s important to note here is that the Ranger Raptor that will be arriving in North America next year will also feature the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine and will be built under the same roof as the Bronco Raptor. So this could mean that the upcoming off-road midsize truck could see similar power figures as the baddest Bronco.
2022 Ford Bronco Raptor Advanced Systems Engineer Jack Cooper told MotorAuthority that the Bronco Raptor should be able to reach speeds of 111 mph on just about any terrain, while the top speed of the SUV is limited to the rating of the tires. The vehicle’s suspension setup allows for 13 inches of front travel and 14 inches of rear travel, ideal when going on bumpy terrain at such thrilling speeds. In addition, the Bronco Raptor features 37-inch BFGoodrich KO2 tires helping give the SUV a total of 13.1 inches of ground clearance. For comparison, that’s 4.8 inches more than a base Bronco and 1.6 inches more than a Sasquatch Package Bronco.
Of course, the size of the vehicle, along with its massive tires, doesn’t do fuel economy any justice, and owners will be looking at spending a couple of thousand dollars just on fuel for the BRaptor. That’s on top of the starting price of $69,995, including destination, but we think it’s well worth the expense. While orders are closed for the Bronco Raptor for the remainder of the 2022 model year, we’re bound to see the SUVs popping up on trails and on the road once they get delivered this summer.
The idea for #BroncoRaptor was an Ultra4 racing-inspired Bronco built for high speed off-roading & extreme rock crawling.
The target was 400 horsepower.
Now it’s official: 418hp + 440lbs-ft of torque!
