Ford Bronco Raptor, a desert-racing beast

DUBAI, January 26, 2022

The all-new 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor, designed and engineered by Ford Performance to be the world’s first Ultra4 Racing-inspired SUV, is capable of highway-speed desert-dune conquering and Baja rock-crawling.
 
Bronco Raptor, the newest member of the Bronco outdoor brand of Built Untamed SUVs, debuts as the most powerful street-legal Bronco ever, and the world’s first Ultra4 Racing-inspired SUV. 
 
Ford Performance, the same team that produces the F-150 Raptor, designed and engineered Bronco Raptor as a calling to hardcore off-road enthusiasts.
 
Bronco Raptor is equipped with elite off-road technology and hardware. Ultra4 Racing is the epitome of grueling off-road competition, featuring demanding races such as the famed King of the Hammers in the Johnson Valley in California, where Bronco Raptor will be on display on Feb. 3. Ford and Bronco will continue as the official truck and SUV of the Ultra4 series.
 
“We poured all of our passion and all of our Bronco and Raptor know-how into creating this absolute desert-racing beast,” said Jim Farley, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company. “It’s the real deal. It’s not for show and it’s not for everybody. But for people who love to get out in the wild, it’s the ultimate. And only Ford could create a Bronco Raptor.”
 
With the addition of Bronco Raptor, Ford once again expands its Raptor high-performance off- road vehicle franchise, which also includes F-150 Raptor for North America and Ranger Raptor for global markets.
 
“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,” Farley added.
 
Beyond the Raptor family, Ford offers an unmatched variety of additional on- and off-road high- performance and specialty performance vehicles, from Mustang Shelby GT500, the pinnacle of Mustang street performance, to the ST lineup of cars and SUVs, to the Tremor family of F- Series and Ranger tough and work-capable off-road trucks.
 
Ford Performance unleashes extreme Built Untamed capability and durability
To build the world’s first Ultra4-inspired SUV, Ford Performance set the bar high. Bronco Raptor had to be even faster and bring more off-road capability, agility and maneuverability than Bronco already delivers.
 
“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.”
