From what I have found, ford hasn't published any numbers. Maybe in an effort to keep some secrecy to the bronco?
Nothing published.. however, doing the math when comparing the percentage of increase of travel from a Australia spec raptor from that of a wildtrak, it looks as if a wildtrak has 6.32” of travel in the front, 8.91 in the rear. - according to their specs. fwiw- the raptor supposedly has 9.29 and 11.42 (rear)

Using both a 17" wheel on the spare and a 12" license plate I get ~63" for the outer edges of the taillights.

I was not expecting the cabin to be the same width as a Wrangler.

ETA: that makes the track width 74" too
Man, I sure hope not... what a massive disappointment it would be if this vehicle had less off-road capability than a Jeep AND less cargo space than a Jeep

The 1st gen Raptors F-150 has between 12 and 13 inches of Front Wheel Travel
The 2nd gen increased that to 13-14.
I think rear stayed the same at 15.
Stock F150’s are between 8 and 9 inches of front wheel travel.
Get ready for the chairs...that’s why the Raptor it’s as wide as it is.
Still not sure this is resonating with a few people.
The figures above for the Raptor Ranger sounds about right, I heard it was close to 10” which is why I was surprised that Teocali thinks all models will have at least 10” of wheel travel.
I know this is a new frame, but the width of the vehicle isn’t matching the performance rumors.

I'm envisioning something like this:

And that mirror is a long ways out too. That's a peculiar attachment.
With it being mounted forward of the pillar, it'd have to stick out farther for you to be able to see it around the pillar.

is that card by chance a color chip from the paint selections?????
Yes, it's called Bullshit Blue! :crackup:

or maybe:

Yup, very well could be that as well - I was trying to come up with something that explained the horizontal bar not going across the whole taillight, but it's totally possible they have additional camo on the headlight lens itself.

Also, it's impressive you came and took a sticky note from my desk without me noticing!

If it was wider, people would complain about not being able to fit on Jeep trails or do the same things. It still gonna have more cargo room

My point in another thread, some people just want a Jeep Wrangler with a Ford badge. Me saying that is not me saying it should be like the fj, it should he similar but not exact and better one thing I love about Ford is how they beat out the competition. Do what they do but better, it's simple and badass rather Chevy's just rushing out quick rushed product to compete

Issue is, overall width is still going to be more than a Wrangler... so it’ll have less capable suspension, less clearance on tight trails, but still have less cargo space? That’s a recipe for disaster
