You’re probably right and seeing as Bronco is heavier than a f150 I’d imagine the 3.5 EB. 5.0 clearly doesn’t fit but what if that new performance pushrod v8, which is related to the Godzilla, did fit? I mean it’s definitely possible with a low production number and high price tag. Maybe Bronco Raptor 3.5EB and Bronco Raptor R comes with a v8. Not holding my breath.

want to make a bet?

No way in hell it will be close to 90K. Not sure why anyone would say that. Lots of guys here just make up shit to scare people.
People are just trying to throw numbers out to justify not getting one. It is pretty easy to get a rough estimate of the Raptor by checking the prices of the F150's compared to the F150 Raptor.

Sorry if this has been covered, but I've been MIA on this site. My FE reservation ended up deferred (99) and I'm now being offered a Bronco Raptor in its place.

I can't find much info on the Raptor and the dealer couldn't confirm anything as well other than it is going to be expensive and they are probably going to sell for MSRP.

With the craziness around allocations, I probably was more likely to get the FE because Ford at least committed to building the 7000 right? I could change to Raptor and maybe the dealer doesn't get allocated that many Bronco Raptors???

What prevents my dealer from saying $30K ADM once it arrives or when the order is placed?

When the details around the Raptor come out, and if I don't like either the price or specs, my dealer thought I could probably switch to another model but wasn't sure.

Would I have any bargaining potential by being able to move my reservation if dealer didn't honor MSRP at time of order?

Thanks in advance...
I put a post in the raptor section about this. I was one of the ones that ford cancelled. They say that’s dealers where aware and that things were messed up, but my dealer had 5 out of 10 FE’s canceled. Out of the 5, three of us have swapped to a bronco raptors and how been confirmed but the region/area rep. Prior to todays confirmation, I spoke to two other dealer that they heard from for that they could offer raptors for FE swaps. Not sure again if this goes for any other models. If they only make the >4500 FE’s then the potential known conversion over to raptors would be greater then what will likely be made in the raptor class. My understanding is that there will only be about 5000 raptors?

Also, ford through my rumor mill circles in suppose to be putting back in the 6.7 V8. The bronco raptor might as well. But, who knows, happy waiting, and we shall see how ford wants to bend us over this time.

on another note, I was able to secure a FE off eBay……….. private adm is a bitch……oh well.……

Alright smart guys. What’s your guess. And your numbers are just guesses too at this point. I’m assuming I’m fixing to see some ridiculous lowball number for a base model with nothing. Or maybe the raptor base is all there is. Yeah my number was speculative. Justifying not getting one….. hadn’t really thought about it but sure I guess. The bronco I just ordered which doesn’t have everything was $68k out the door at msrp. How ridiculous is it to think that the raptor is another 20k?

I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility the equivalent Raptor would be another 20k

pure speculation by everyone.

A Raptor will all the goodies and 37s is around 83K. No way in hell a Bronco Raptor will be more.

Just my prediction but base price on the Braptor will be lower than 2021 f150 Raptor base price which is $64,415

i was told $7500 to $8000 more than FE

Like I said the dealer told you. pricing has not been released and dealers are the last to know anything.

It was already leaked here (in the Ford ordering system) and Ford has already removed the info and the post has been deleled. It looks like there will be at least 2 trims. The base trim will MGV seats and the lux package will have leather. Code Orange will be a color option.

yes, well by the owner. i think it comes down to what engine that actually put in it.

The wrangler 392 starts at $74500. For that price you get a fully loaded rubicon with 470HP. Ford is going to have to put at minimum a 3.5 EB and keep the price around the same as the wrangler. Since everyone wants to compare the bronco raptor to the F-150 raptor price, keep in mind the base TRX STARTS at $72490.

I heard 35s stock. 37s maybe an option. I asked bc I dont want 37s on my daily driver. currently have 38s.
