The Ford Bronco Raptor’s engine will produce 418 horsepower – 18 hp over initial estimates.

Ford CEO Jim Farley has informed the official performance figures for the new Ford Bronco Raptor on his Twitter: 418 hp + 440 lb-ft of torque. Originally 400 horsepower was a target.

This is good news, as the Bronco Raptor turns out to be even more potent than expected. We recall that the SUV is equipped with a twin-turbo V6 engine.

As for fuel economy, of course, you should not expect it will be high, but it seems those who choose this hardcore variant of the model hardly think of how fuel-efficient it is.

The 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor will get 15/16/15 miles per gallon (city/highway/combined) according to the EPA test.

For comparison: the Bronco with a turbocharged 2.3-liter 300-hp 4-cylinder engine has a fuel consumption rating of 20 mpg, while the fuel economy of the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 powered by a 470-hp V8  is 13 mpg in the city, 17 mpg on the highway, and 14 mpg in the mixed cycle. The Wrangler Rubicon 392 is the closest rival of the Bronco Raptor.

Expect the Ford Bronco Raptor to go into production this summer. The SUV features a HOSS 4.0 Suspension with FOX Live Valve 3.1 Internal Bypass Semi-Active Dampers, and 37-inch BFGoodrich KO2 all-terrain tires.
