SEMA News caught up to Shelby Hall standing next to a real-world, Bronco Raptor. Hall is literally one of the few civilians with any seat time in the new model. She could barely contain her excitement as she gave the video team a quick tour around the vehicle.
“Raptor is the apex of our off-road lineup and is now a full lineup with race proven content and design that you can’t get from anyone else,” said Jim Farley, chief executive officer, Ford Motor Company. “Only Ford could create a Bronco Raptor.”
“We had to build the Bronco Raptor—it’s our ultimate vehicle for hardcore off-road enthusiasts who demand something more,” said Carl Widmann, Ford Performance chief engineer. “Like the Ultra4 desert race trucks, the ‘Raptor of SUVs’ conquers desert dunes at highway speeds and is equipped with competition-level off-road technology and hardware.”
