Ford has revealed its upcoming high performance Bronco Raptor model in full for the first time.
The four-door SUV wears a patterned wrap to disguise some of the finer details, but doesn’t hide the extended wheel flares installed to accommodate its widebody stance and massive 37-inch all-terrain tires.
The F-150 Raptor-style FORD grille is exposed, along with some bodywork painted the Raptor’s signature orange its heavy duty off-road steel bumpers and side steps.
There also appears to be vents added to the front fenders, likely to accommodate a high powered engine. Ford hasn’t said what will be under the hood, but the current Bronco’s 2.7-liter V6 maxes out at 315 hp and the Ford-affiliated Bronco Nation fan website that published the images of the Raptor suggested it will be rated around 350 hp.

What’s missing is a charge port that would support rumors that a plug-in hybrid version will be available using the 494 hp powertrain from the Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring, but since Ford released the photos, it may just not want to spill all the beans yet.
A date for the Bronco Raptor’s full reveal has not been announced, but it is scheduled to go on sale next summer.
