Ford Confirms Bronco Raptor Debut for 2022

2022 Ford Bronco Raptor | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

Nothing screams adventure and excitement better than the Ford Bronco, and Ford recently revealed a small sneak peek into a Bronco special edition model that will elevate the excitement and enhance the adventure. Ford announced that it will unveil the Ford Bronco Raptor in 2022, taking its Built Wild™ SUV up to an entirely new level.

A short teaser video contains a close-up of the grille that contains all-caps Ford lettering, the Raptor logo, and a bright Code Orange exterior. Other than what we see in the video, the details about the exciting Bronco Raptor are sparse, but we can speculate about what the Bronco Raptor will have to offer based on the features of the Ford F-150 Raptor. Distinct features of the high-performance variant of the F-150 include a higher-output engine and FOX™ Live Valve™ shocks, so we can probably see those translated over to the Bronco Raptor as well.

Ford says it will reveal the Bronco Raptor sometime in 2022, so we don’t have too much longer to wait.

As we eagerly wait for more details about the Bronco Raptor, we have received some updates about the 2022 Ford Bronco’s color choices. As a callback to the Mallard Green paint featured on first-generation Bronco models created in the 1970s, the new 2022 Ford Bronco will be available in Eruption Green Metallic. The Hot Pepper Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat will also be new for the 2022 model year.

Ford Created 2,700 American Jobs for the New Bronco

Ford Bronco Factory Creates American Jobs | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

After 25 years out of production, the legendary Ford Bronco has finally returned. And to help bring this Built Wild icon back life, Ford invested $750 million in its Michigan Assembly Plant and created 2,700 jobs for Americans.

The first Bronco models were built at this very same plant back in 1965. The Michigan Assembly Plant was the official home of the Bronco for five generations, until the model went out of production on June 12, 1996. Over its 31-year legacy as one of America’s top off-road vehicles, the automaker built over 1.1 million Broncos. Nowadays, the sixth-generation 2021 Ford Bronco is rolling off the assembly line at the Michigan Assembly Plant.

“We have the most skilled workforce in America working in a plant that’s state-of-the-art,” stated John Savona, Ford vice president of manufacturing and labor affairs “It’s an unbeatable combination designed to deliver our customers a high-quality, ready-for-anything, all-new Bronco.”

But the brand-new Bronco’s journey doesn’t stop there. Custom features are added at the Modification Center, a 1.7-million-square-foot facility located right next door to the Michigan Assembly Plant. Here, expert technicians can customize your Bronco with over 200 factory-backed accessories, including roof racks, safari bars, and exterior graphic accents.
