APG illustrates how to convert an ordinary Bronco into a Raptor-like equivalent

Since the 1960s, the Bronco SUV has set the bar for off-roading, and the most recent sixth-generation models are no exception. Relaunched in 2021, after a long hiatus of over two decades, the Bronco is still one of the least expensive off-road champs in the country. However, if you are a professional or a wannabe, you may have to opt for the Bronco Raptor, which debuted in January 2022. However, because of the limited production and higher price than the regular Bronco, getting your hands on one will be challenging before they are all gone.

Lately only Mansory or Novitec dared to change anything on the Italian sports car, but today, Senner Tuning came with its own program for the F8, and it’s interesting to say the least.

However, there are engine swaps that are much more uncommon, whether because of the engine choice or because of the car they are done to, and these are some of the main culprits.
