exhaust coming out the left side versus the current right side? so not using the 2.7 ecoboost?
interesting that it's only a single pipe, even the edge ST has dual pipe exhaust and it runs the 2.7L ecoboost . So is this this really a performance model?

nothing. The only "upgrades" i could see are suspension that you wont ever use unless you live in the desert and maybe paddle shifters.

this is a giant screw up by ford. All they would have to do to make this thing sell is put the coyote or godzilla in it. and it would sell very well too

thats it. Nobody is going to buy a performance vehicle with a v6 that has less displacement than a jeeps pentastar lmfao
They'll sell every one they build without a problem....and still have a list of people wanting one.

I’m not impressed. I think Ford missed the boat on what this could’ve been. Luckily for ford, my opinion won’t matter and they’ll easily sell any they make. Definitely not worth the extra money and it looks goofy. I’d take a badlands all day over this. Wouldn’t mind seeing some squared off fender options in the future though with reasonable width.

I've said it before, and will say it again, but the width of track just looks to preposterous compared to the limited width of the hardtop. It's most evident in the rear. Like a fat guy with a little hat. The width of the top of the hard top is almost 60% the total width of the flares/wheels. It's almost to the point that your eyes question if the greenhouse is just a single row of seats with the driver in the middle, because your mind wants to visually scale down the track of the vehicle to be within normal range.
Looks like a pull-back car.

Tangent: any word from the powers that be of an improved fender flare for existing Sasquatch’ers? Looks like they were able to improve coverage, here, on the Raptor version. The flare / mud flap combo is no bueno.
I noticed that too along with what looks like a different side step / rail. It would be nice to have something that actually protects the vehicle from rocks and debris.

I don't think we ever thought it was using the 2.7.

Nice. Are they changing the tail light design?
Bronco Raptor is getting its own unique taillights, yes.

no v8 no buy

2.7 regular bronco is fine. Without a v8 there is really no reason to pay the premium for whatever this is raptor is since only a small amount of people live near areas where you can utilize a extreme suspension (desert running).

people making apologetics for ford on this are enabling the behavior. We only have about a decade and a half of production ICE cars left. We need as many aluminum skinned v8's as possible because in 30 years they will be worth their weight in gold.
Aka "I don't like it, therefore nobody should nor should anyone buy it."


why would you buy a raptor over a wildtrack? just curious
There are definite performance upgrades. Just because you don't like it purely because "NO V8" doesn't mean it doesn't have significant upgrades. You're trolling at this point.

It looks like the wider fender-flares come down more and act as some sort of built-in mud flap? Anyone else notice this or am I crazy?
