What was an open secret has just been confirmed. It is official, the Ford Bronco Raptor will be a reality and it will reach the North American market in the short term. A highly anticipated high-performance version signed by Ford Performance which is called to crown the range of the iconic off-road vehicle. In addition to confirming its future release, a first preview has been shown.

Over the past few months we have been closely following the development process for the Bronco Raptor. A version that until not long ago it was speculated that it was baptized with the name Warthog. However, and as is obvious, the firm of the blue oval has chosen to maintain a commercial name that is iconic and that is already present in its product offering.

Beyond the numerous spy photos that we have been publishing on Motor.es these months, the leaks that have occurred have allowed us to discover some of the keys to the new Bronco Raptor. A trim level that has the internal code E5J and that will be offered in two versions or trim levels. In addition, and based on the sightings, it will be available next to the four-door body.

Some of the components equipped on the Bronco Raptor can be found on other Ford models such as the F-150 Raptor and Ranger Raptor. We have beadlock type rims or FOX shocks with Live Valve technology. In addition, and predictably, the tires will be wrapped by about BFGoodrich tires.
