The Warthog? What You Know As the Ford Bronco Raptor May Get New Name
The Blue Oval’s decision to trademark “Warthog” may point to the Bronco lineup's halo model.

September 14, 2020

A recent application by Ford with the United States Patent and Trademark Office is adding fuel to the fire that the most off-road-ready Bronco model will forgo the Raptor nameplate used by its F-150 and (overseas) Ranger pickup siblings and instead bear the name Warthog. That's right, just like the open-roofed military vehicle from the Halo video game franchise. Or Pumbaa from the Lion King movie.

There's no telling if the Warthog name is truly heading to the Bronco, as the application only deems it for, "Land motor vehicles, namely, passenger automobiles, pick-up trucks, sport utility vehicles." That's an admittedly broad list of possible applications.

Nevertheless, internet forums have circulated the possibility of the top-dog Bronco model donning the "Warthog" name for some time now. Although Bronco fans aren't product planners, the fact they've been predicting a name that the Blue Oval only just got around to trademarking does lend credit to the possibility of a future Bronco model bearing the Warthog name.

Whatever it's called, we expect the most hard-core Bronco model to follow much the same trajectory of its F-150 Raptor stablemate. Look for wider fenders, extra ground clearance, beefier springs and shocks, and more power from the SUV. The switch from "Raptor" to "Warthog" nomenclature may suggest a shift in off-road priorities, too, from the former's high-speed desert-runner vibe to a lower-speed, rock-crawler Jeep Wrangler-esque mission. While the most powerful 2021 Bronco packs a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6 with 310 hp under its hood, the Warthog may sport an even larger twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 with at least 350 ponies.

With sales of the 2021 Ford Bronco still some months off, it's unlikely the Bronco Warthog will debut anytime soon. Nevertheless, it's always possible the name finds its way to another Ford vehicle first. If you ask us, Expedition Warthog has a nice ring to it.

I’m certain the setup will be sweet once it arrives, but I personally think the name is terrible. Bronco Warthog just doesn’t roll of the tongue very nicely. Maybe it’ll sound better to me by the time it releases.

Dang. You could take that thing off road and go hog wild. It certainly wouldn’t be boaring to drive around and if your significant other gets mad you can just tell her to stop swining.

I’ll see myself out. 🚪

I don't like Wildtrak and unless this new oddball name comes with a damned GAU-8 Avenger it shouldn't be used for a production model.

So did we see the "Warthog" a couple of days ago running around under camo?

Ford should just double down and offer a Master Chief package. Probably some serious trademark infringement but it’s worth the risk :LOL: :cool:

Now I just have to decide wether to go with the Gauss or the Turret version.

Fords HALO vehicle might be called Warthog 🤯. Who was the Master Chief mind behind this. I want to shake his spartan hand.

Didnt Jeep have a Black Ops Wrangler? Ford could totally license the trademarks from Bungie for an officially branded Warthog!

I agree!
...and in a Warthog, it should also offer Jake braking with a resounding BRRRT!

I second that...BRRRRT!
