It will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre EcoBoost V6.
Official output numbers are 418 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque.
This is truly a numbers game. The battle for off-road supremacy and power is ragging something fierce. We’ve been waiting for output numbers for the new 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor, and we finally have them.
Unfortunately for Bronco Raptor fans, it won’t match the reigning super-off-roader champion, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392. The Ford’s included twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre EcoBoost V6 will develop 418 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque. The Jeep’s naturally-aspirated 6.4-litre V8 puts out 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque.
It was Ford’s CEO, Jim Farley, in a Tweet that confirmed these figures.
The idea for #BroncoRaptor was an Ultra4 racing-inspired Bronco built for high speed off-roading & extreme rock crawling.
The target was 400 horsepower.
Now it’s official: 418hp + 440lbs-ft of torque!

In the US, the new Raptor is priced from $69,995 while the 392 starts at $78,690. The pricing difference can excuse the “lesser” output in America but in Canada, the story’s not quite the same. The 2022 Bronco Raptor starts at $99,995 whereas the 2022 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 392 begins at $101,445.
No matter what however both trucks are or will become complete unobtanium so complaining about the numbers is all but pointless.
