This is what has been called the “Bronco Warthog,” that is until now, as a source close to the blue oval has confirmed that we’re actually looking at the Ford Bronco Raptor.
The vehicle looks fresh, as if it just finished being built, and now features the infamous FORD grille.
All the expected workings of a Raptor are present and accounted for, including a significantly higher ground clearance, wider wheel arches, and a wider, more aggressive stance. The significant amount of thick camouflage covers up the majority of the vehicle, but the camo can only do so much to disguise what are clearly wider flares.
The prototype rides on a set of BFGoodrich AT All Terrain T/A tires, though we can’t quite make out the size (it appears to be a 17-in. rim). It’s not clear what suspension upgrades are in place, but the Raptor is definitely expected to feature a more rugged and capable chassis.
The latest rumblings pin the Bronco Raptor as launching for the ’23 model year, where it will join the F-150 Raptor and Ranger Raptor.
