2022 Ford Bronco Raptor SUV
Built for desert racing and rock-crawling, Ford's new Bronco Raptor is worthy of its name. It's powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine making over 400 horsepower, mated to a 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission tuned by Ford Performance. A host of alterations were needed to handle the extra demands of this setup, including new axles taken from the Bronco DR that make it 9.8 inches wider than the base model, new shock towers for increased wheel travel, a higher-capacity clutch, reinforced cross bars and C-pillars for a torsional rigidity boost of over 50%, a race-ready suspension, a beefier 4x4 system, and a true dual exhaust. While the outside changes make it race-ready, the interior is prepared for the tarmac with a 12-inch touchscreen, available 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, adaptive cruise, and 360-degree views powered by the exterior cameras.
