Ford has let out its ultimate prizefighter to take on the Jeep Wrangler
After being in production for over three decades, the Bronco went down in the history books as one of the most hardcore SUVs that mankind had ever seen. The SUV was developed as an off-roader to take on the Jeep CJ-5, and it succeeded to a large extent. However, the company decided to put down the model in 1996 to make way for a newer lineup. Purists and enthusiasts hoped the model would make a comeback, and after 20+ years, the moniker has come back from the ashes.
Rumors about its reincarnation started many years back, but the company didn’t confirm its existence until less than a year before it was unveiled. The wait was not easy, but it was worth it. The company launched the rugged, off-road Bronco in two- and four-door configurations, to go with an urban version with an off-road bias called the Bronco Sport. Ford will offer hundreds of optional accessories right from its launch as well. Despite all this, does it have in it to take on the undisputed king of the segment, the Jeep Wrangler?

The Ford Bronco Isn’t An American-Exclusive Anymore
After an absence of 25 years, the Bronco name was revived in 2021. The sixth generation arrived as an off-road SUV built specifically for the American market. Now, after another year, Ford announced that the Bronco will also be offered on the European market, but there is a catch: it will be offered in limited numbers and only in left-hand drive. This way the Bronco will be the third American-built Ford model offered in Europe, next to the Mustang and the Explorer. European sales will begin in the third quarter of 2023.
The Ford Bronco Raptor Gives "Built Wild" A Whole New Meaning
The return of the Ford Bronco name quickly paved the way for various interpretations of the retro-futuristic SUV. Last year, Ford unveiled the future of Built Wild by introducing a short-wheelbase Bronco for the 4600 stock class, which was a throwback to the 1969 Bronco 1000 Baja. Now, Ford Performance took Built Wild to the next level, with a more utilitarian version, based on the four-door Bronco that’s even more extreme.

All the AWD Manual Cars You Can Buy in 2022

Ford Might Have Some Big Plans For The ‘Raptor’ Brand In The Coming Years
While the onus will be on electrification moving forward, there are a lot of other moving parts that need to work along in tandem for automakers to ensure a smooth transition. Ford has taken the first big step – probably the biggest step – of electrifying the most product in its lineup, the Ford F-150. With that out of the way, the automaker can now switch its focus on something completely different altogether this year – grow the Raptor brand even more.
If you pick up all the pieces the company has been dropping in the last 1-1.5 years, you’ll realize that it is working on building the Raptor brand. We have the F-150 Raptor R coming, the Bronco Raptor is already here, and even the Ranger Raptor has finally crossed the forbidden door and come to the States and Canada. Will Ford make ‘Raptor’ a standalone brand like the Mustang and the Bronco?

Here’s How The Ford Bronco Squares Up Against The Ford Bronco Raptor
Ford’s first gift to the enthusiasts in 2022 was the Bronco Raptor, which is essentially a jacked-up version of the regular Bronco. It comes with a buttload of changes on the outside and inside, and even features a new engine under the hood. The Raptor also comes with upgraded version of all the off-road gear that’s present in the Bronco. Since the differences between the two were more than a few, we decided to list them all out. Well, you’ll now know which one to buy and which of these suits your needs.

Everything You Need to Know about the Ford Bronco Raptor
Ford took the wraps off the Bronco Raptor In January 2022. The automaker launched the Bronco in 2020 and has now inducted the off-roader into the Raptor family, which speaks volumes of the faith the company has in this product.

Watch A Hennessey-Tuned VelociRaptor 400 Bronco Show A Stock Bronco Who The Real Daddy Is!
The Bronco Raptor has been in the headlines lately for all the right reasons. So, Hennessey has decided to make use of the ripple effect caused by ‘Bronco’ to show us all the prowess of its creation of the beast called the VelociRaptor 400 Bronco. It is based on the standard V-6, but comes with a power boost and a whole lot of other upgrades. The Hennessey team decided to pit it against a stock Bronco to show us how better it is than the latter. Sounds fun?

2022 Ford Bronco Raptor
Ford forayed into the off-roading scene with the Bronco in 2020 as a challenger to the Wrangler. Now, it’s not like this was the first off-roader from the company, but it sure was one without the Raptor badge. A few hardcore enthusiasts would’ve already predicted a Bronco Raptor back then itself, and they must be grinning today to see their prediction come true.
The Blue Oval has made the inevitable happen 18 months after the Bronco was launched by including it in the Raptor family. It was officially announced a few months back, and it is now finally here. The Bronco Raptor debuts with a 3.0-liter V-6 that puts out 418 horses, an upgraded suspension setup and off-road gear, and a price tag of around $70,000.

Did You Know That Buying A Ford Bronco Sport Helps In Saving Our Oceans?
Buying a car is not exactly what you would call a very eco-friendly choice.

In the case of the Ford Bronco Sport, buying one could mean ridding the ocean from plastic pollution.
See And Hear The Ford Bronco Raptor As It Plays Around The Sand

The $200,000+ Bronco DR Is The Only Way You Can Get A V-8 Bronco From The Factory
Ford was mighty active at the recently concluded SEMA Show. It introduced tens of concepts for its trucks and the Mustang range. The Bronco wasn’t left behind either. We would’ve liked it if the Bronco Raptor would have made its debut here, but instead, the company gave us the Bronco DR – a Desert Racer built to compete in the 2022 Baja 1000. Interestingly, the company will put it up for sale, but it isn’t street legal. Care you shell out over $200,000 for the beast?

It’s Official: The 2022 Ford Bronco Sasquatch Will Have a Manual Transmission
When Ford revived the Bronco moniker from the ashes, it made sure to cover all bases possible. It missed out on a couple of them, like not offering a V-8 and not making a manual gearbox available with the Sasquatch Package. The latter was rectified soon, and now there’s an official confirmation stating the same.
A user on Bronco6g.com forum attached an order guide for the 2022 Bronco that shows that the beefy Sasquatch package is available with the manual gearbox. Not exactly a surprise, but it’s good to have an official confirmation.
It’s Official: The Ford Bronco Raptor Is Coming in 2022!
After a lot of speculations and rumors, including a Ford employee spilling the beans on LinkedIn, we finally have an official confirmation – the Ford Bronco Raptor is happening!

A Modified Honda Grom Takes On An Old-school Tuned Ford Bronco

Leaked Data Confirms the Ford Bronco Raptor’s Existence
Details about a new Ford Bronco Raptor have surfaced online. According to the Bronco6G forum, one of their members has submitted photographs of the Raptor’s page in Ford’s database: A new body code E5J was identified for the 2022 Bronco, which previously did not exist for the 2021 model. The page has since been taken down and is no longer live.
These details were most likely added by a Ford store employee. Importantly, there is a stated equipment bundle simply titled “Raptor.” As a result, this information appears to be evidence of this highly anticipated model’s existence and its impending arrival can now be seen on the automaker’s dealership network ordering software.
Eruption Green Paint Fits The 2022 Ford Bronco Perfectly
Ford Just Aborted the Ford Bronco Pickup Project That Never Existed
The way the Ford Bronco turned out, it feels like it was conceived with a sole purpose in mind – to kill the Jeep Wrangler. So, naturally, everyone expected it to target even the Gladiator, the Wrangler-based pickup truck, by eventually launching a Bronco-based pickup truck. But, as it turns out, the rumored truck is canceled and the Gladiator will live to fight another day.
The Ford Bronco Is No Match For The Jeep Wrangler 4xe In Drag Races
The Ford Bronco has been at the Wrangler’s throat ever since it was conceptualized. Targeted to take it on from all the sides, the Bronco came out all guns blazing. However, Jeep has made some smart and methodical strikes to some of Bronco’s most vulnerable areas that have skewed the results back in balance. For starters, there was the announcement of the V-8 Wrangler hours before the Bronco’s much-anticipated debut. Then there was the adoption of electrification in the form of the Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid. While you can get the V-8 conversion, you can’t get a plug-in hybrid setup installed on the Bronco, thus giving the edge to the Jeep product.
While the off-roading prowess of the Bronco is as good as – if not better – than the Wrangler 4xe, the on-road performance is not. To test this out, the folks at The Fast Lane Car decided to test this out by pitting the two for a series of straight-line races.

The Hennessey VelociRaptor 400 Badlands - The Original Velociraptors Little Brother
Hennessey, the famous Texas tuner and producer of some absolutely insane automobiles, adds another special edition to its repertoire, this time based on the Ford Bronco. It’s not their first, as they debuted the full-fledged Ford Bronco VelociRaptor with a 750 horsepower V-8 engine last October. This is, however, that VelociRaptor’s little brother.
Do We Have A Shelby Bronco On The Horizon?
The Bronco Nation uploaded a video of a 2021 Ford Bronco taking on the 2021 Shelby GT500 SE on a race track on its YouTube channel. The Shelby GT500 SE was piloted by Shelby American’s CEO, Gary Patterson, whereas, Shelby Hall, a rising off-road racer, was behind the wheel of the Bronco. While the race was arbitrary, it was all about the wordplay here and the last few seconds that hinted at a Shelby Bronco being in the works. The details are scarce at this point, but this 90-odd second video has stirred the pot!
Ford Could Be Working on An Electric Bronco, But When Will We See It?
There are a ton of speculations out there about famous products and their future. The new Ford Bronco hasn’t even settled in yet, but there were talks about its future already. While some prefer having discussions amongst their peers, some folks decide to question the head of the company about it. A Twitter user questioned Ford’s President and CEO, Jim Farley, why there’s no Bronco EV yet and the boss hinted that there is one already in the works.
The Ford Bronco Has A Little More Heart Than Expected
Ford denied us the pleasure of driving a powerful V-8 Bronco, but it looks like the automaker is covering it up in different ways. Or, another way to look at it is Ford is rewarding the customers for taking longer than expected to deliver the Bronco. What the reward is, you ask? Well, you will be getting more power in your Bronco than the initial specs. This will be the case with both, the four-pot and the V-6 mills. Exciting news, isn’t it?
Ford Gatecrashes Moab Easter Jeep Safari With Four Bronco Concepts
How can one forget the day the new 2021 Bronco was launched! Ford had all the momentum for the grand unveiling, but Jeep decided to play a spoilsport at the last minute. Jeep announced that the Wrangler will be launched with a V-8 engine, just hours before the Bronco was supposed to debut. Now, whether you call it a tactical move or Jeep just being a baby, there’s no denying that it must have Ford off quite bad.
Less than a year later, Ford decided to invade the Easter Jeep Safari by bringing four Bronco-based concept models to Moab and steal some attention from Jeep and its concepts.
Own a Piece of Baja 1000 History With This Very Special Ford Bronco
Born out of the sheer need and desire to push boundaries, Big Oly wrote history at Baja 1000, where it came out victorious two years in a row, in 1971 and 1972, with further victories at the 1973 Baja 500 and Mint 400. Mind you, this was not your run-of-the-mill Ford Bronco.
The 2021 Ford Bronco as a Street Rod? Chip Foose Thought of It
Ford’s plans with the Bronco involve selling a lot of aftermarket bits and bobs on top of the actual cars. This is a move inspired by what Jeep has been doing with Mopar and going further, it is possible that some customers might decide to tune their Broncos to ever greater extents. For those, Chip Foose has an interesting design proposal.
The Ford Bronco Sport Can Be Equipped With Five Accessory Bundles For More Outdoor Fun
To make sure that the Bronco received a positive response, Ford had prepped to unveil it with aftermarket accessories right from the beginning, with a plan to have over 150 accessories at launch. This was a page right out of Jeep’s playbook, a brand known to sell hundreds of aftermarket parts for every model. To make sure owners have no dearth of products to customize the Bronco and Bronco Sport as per their taste, the company has now launched five more bundles for the latter.
This Bronco 4600 Ultra4 Is What The Bronco Was Meant to Be From The Start
Ford has unveiled the Bronco 4600 race truck series that will take part in the Ultra4 Class races. This comes following the three 4400 rally class Broncos that the automaker showcased earlier this week. The Bronco 4600 will not be street legal, of course, but it comes with a plethora of equipment that can make you go weak in the knees. Ford has noted that it will be based on the two-door Bronco with the V-6 engine.
The Ford Bronco Was Apparently Raised By Goats And We’re Not A Fan
As far as origin stories go, the Ford Bronco’s genesis is as weird as it gets. No doubt, Ford wants to integrate the SUV’s “Goes Over All Terran” (G.O.A.T.) driving models into this commercial, and it did just that by adding goats into the tale of the Bronco’s birth. The ad is strange in so many ways that you might as well believe it if you’re the type to believe that such a scenario — a young, injured colt getting raised by goats — actually happens in this fair world of ours. But it is a commercial, and every commercial’s goal is to get people to talk about it. So, in a roundabout way, Ford’s “Raised by Goats” commercial for the Bronco succeeds in its intended objective. We’re talking about it, albeit with plenty of raised eyebrows and confused looks.
Ford’s Late Delivery of the 2021 Bronco Is Sending Would-Be Customers to Jeep
Ford unveiled the 2021 Bronco in a grand fashion and received an overwhelming response. There was a lot of pressure on the automaker to create a product that was good enough to go up against the very well established Jeep Wrangler. Ford managed to pull it off and people loved the Bronco - the 190,000 reservations it received prove so. But, with constant delays, it looks like people are losing patience and Ford is suddenly losing customers to none other than Jeep.
The 2021 Ford Bronco Might Be Awesome, But It’s Also Delayed
The 2021 Ford Bronco had a great debut. The leaks before the launch gave away enough for speculations to bumble, but still maintained the surprise element. The hype generated by Ford’s PR was “built to last”, and when it finally debuted, it came with ample features to be touted as an extremely desirable proposition. The company rolled out the configurator, too, so people could spec their Broncos in time for the spring deliveries. But, it looks like the wait is going to get inevitably longer.
Ford announced that due to the pandemic, the Bronco’s launch is pushed from the spring to the summer of 2021.
The Baja 1000 Just Let the SCG Boot Prove That It’s Infinitely Better Than the Ford Bronco R
Ford entered the off-road Bronco prototype, the Bronco R, at last year’s Baja 1000 and it took a lot of people by surprise because the Bronco was not unveiled yet. It couldn’t complete the race, but it managed to add to the ongoing buzz surrounding it. This year, the Bronco R completed the race, but couldn’t beat its rival, the SCG Boot. The SCG Boot just scored its second consecutive Class 2 victory despite a punctured tire during the run. Is the Boot on the verge of becoming a legend in the Class 2 category?
2021 Ford Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept
The Blue Oval is preparing to unveil a variety of custom builds, including the Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept. Created to showcase the Bronco’s modularity, the concept highlights what amounts to the Bronco Badlands’ ability to act as an urban ride on weekdays and off-road marauder on weekends through the glory of swappable components.
The Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept will be revealed alongside Ford’s other SEMA offerings during the Ford Auto Nights webcast that starts at 8.PM. tonight.
2020 MAD Ford Bronco Sport Badlands Overland Concept
Ford’s recipe for its 2020 SEMA Auto Show lineup was simple. Use popular models in the lineup, give them concept makeovers, and let everyone know about all the custom tuning possibilities that can be done to these models. It doesn’t come as a surprise that, in addition to the Ranger and the F-150 trucks, Ford chose the Bronco to its SEMA lineup and created two concepts out of the returning nameplate. One of these concepts is called the MAD Ford Bronco Sport Badlands Overland. Ford teamed with MAD Industries to create this concept, which shows the capacity of Ford’s newest SUV to be as adept in the outdoors as it is on concrete roads. It’s a dream-come-true concept for Bronco fans who have been clamoring for ways to customize the Bronco and turn it into a legitimate 4x4 off-roader.
Ford Didn’t Even Bother To Check if the Coyote V-8 Would Fit in the 2021 Bronco
When the Bronco was unveiled, a lot of us were disappointed by the absence of a V-8 mill. But, we still had hopes that it could become a reality someday. However, Ford made it clear that a V-8 will not be offered here. Although we had our deliberations, this confirmation from Ford served as the final nail in the coffin.
It has now come to light that Ford was sure about not offering one right from the start. In fact, it even built the Bronco without bothering to check if a V-8 engine could be plonked in or not! Speaking with Ford Authority, Bronco’s Chief Engineer, Eric Loefller said that they hadn’t even given it a shot during its development days.
2021 Ford Bronco V-8 VelociRaptor by Hennessey
The only chink in Bronco’s armor is the missing V-8 engine under the hood. Although Ford matched the Jeep Wrangler in every aspect, dare I say, even better in some, the lack of a V-8 will be a deal-breaker for some folks. However, aftermarket tuners have grabbed on to this opportunity. PaxPower was one of the first companies to announce a Bronco V-8 and soon many companies jumped the wagon. The latest one to do so is Hennessey Performance.
Hennessey has announced that it will be building a VelociRaptor version of the Ford Bronco with a V-8 mill that will churn out 750 horses. This will be a limited-edition build and will cost around four-times the cost of a standard Bronco. Is it worth it?
2020 Ford Bronco Wildland Fire Rig Concept
Post the big debut, the Ford Bronco and its urban-alter ego are busy with various other activities. The Bronco Sport recently won the 2020 Rebelle Rally in its category in stock condition, and now Ford has announced the Bronco will don the emergency vehicle outfit to support the National Forest Foundation.
Ford has teamed up with Filson, an outdoor outfitter, to develop the Bronco Wildland Fire Rig Concept. It is customized with firefighting equipment and Ford will donate two examples for the cause.
Would You Have Preferred The Bronco With A Foldable Windshield?
Although the Ford Bronco checks most of the boxes, and then some more, there are a few rather noticeable things that are missing. One is the V-8 engine, which looked like it could feature somewhere in the future, but Ford confirmed that’s not happening.
The second one is the foldable windshield. When the Bronco was unveiled, it came with almost all the stuff that is offered on the Wrangler as well, but it was conspicuous by its absence. Ford has now thrown some light on it citing compromised construction as the reason for it not being offered.
2021 Ford Bronco Overland Concept
The all-new Bronco has looked very impressive on paper so far and has matched the Wrangler is almost every aspect. But, in its quest to beat the leader of the pack, the biggest question still poses in front of it – can it be accessorized and fitted with various parts and equipment like the Wrangler? Well, Ford has answered this by revealing the Bronco Overland Concept. Does this make Ford’s reincarnated product look versatile?
Drain Me Up, Scotty: This Is How The 2021 Ford Bronco Gets Rid of Interior Water
The brand-new, 2021 Ford Bronco is more than just a hauler to drive around in. Just like the Jeep Wrangler, the Bronco was conceived with off-road capability in mind and the right specs will enable it to climb muddy and rocky trails with ease.
Do that without the doors into place and the interior will get dirty, but this isn’t much of an issue since it’s the kind of vehicle you can clean with a hose. And because the Bronco’s floor is fitted with no fewer than 10 plugs, draining the water out of the cabin is not a problem.
This Trivial Complaint About the Ford Bronco Confirms How Entitled People Are In 2020
Air conditioning is not a ‘feature’ in cars anymore. It’s available from the entry-level cars to the most expensive ones. The only thing that differs in cars across the range is the availability of rear A/C vents, automatic climate zone, multiple-zone control, etc.
When Ford launched the Bronco, one such feature that didn’t made the cut was the conventional rear A/C vents as seen in other cars. Although it didn’t seem like a deal-breaker considering its niche, some people have been nitpicking this feature to a point where Ford had to address the “issue” and shed some light on it. This goes on to show how entitled people are these days.
