Everything You Need to Know About the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor
The 2021 Ford Bronco has been the talk of the town since it was unveiled. The off-roader was, arguably, the most anticipated model this year, and it would be fair to say that it didn’t disappoint. But we enthusiasts are a greedy bunch and still want a Raptor version of the Bronco. That’s like asking for an off-road version of an off-roader! The Bronco comes with most of the stuff needed, but a Raptor trim could push things beyond the boundaries. Also, the Bronco has taken part in Baja 1000 before it was reincarnated, so that makes having a Raptor version even more imperative, and it could further cement the new off-roader’s place in the segment.

Ford just unveiled the 2021 Bronco,, which marks the return of the iconic nameplate after a 25-year hiatus.

The 2021 Bronco is available in seven trim levels, most of them named for off-road enthusiasts. The lineup includes Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Wildtrak, Badlands, and First Edition.

Ford Bronco vs. Jeep Wrangler
The highly anticipated Ford Bronco is finally here. Discontinued after five generations in 1996, the Bronco nameplate returned after almost 25 years. That’s big news for SUV enthusiasts, but it’s equally important that Ford finally offers a competitor for the Jeep Wrangler.
The latter is by far the most popular option when it comes to rugged, off-road-ready SUVs, so the Bronco has a very difficult mission upon its return. Does it have what it takes to compete with the Wrangler? Is it better than Jeep’s tried-and-true off-roader? Well, these are questions that will get solid answers once the Bronco starts rolling off the assembly line and we get our hands on one. But until that happens, here’s a thorough comparison that reveals how they stack against each other on paper.
