In September 2021,
Ford
announced that its
new manifestation of the Bronco
will be the next model to join the Raptor family, priming four-wheeling fans for the expected hysteria. If Ford gives the Bronco the same level of upgrades it gave to the Ranger, few will be disappointed.
The Ford Bronco Raptor is the combo fans have been waiting for.

What do we know about the Ford Bronco Raptor so far?

The new Ford Bronco was one of the U.S. brand’s few wins in 2021. The automaker suffered more than most during the
chip shortage
crisis, but the consumer and critical praise for the Bronco likely helped lift spirits at the Dearborn, Michigan headquarters.
The current Bronco is available in seven trims, but the most off-road capability actually comes in the form of the Sasquatch package, which offers 35-inch tires, high-clearance suspension, and the Bilstein dampers.
Car and Driver
says the Bronco Raptor trim will make that all look like child’s play.
37-inch tires, stronger axles, an anti-roll bar, Fox adaptive dampers, a wider track, and a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine producing 450 horsepower are all expected in the Raptor upgrade. Car and Driver estimates that it will cost about $65,000.

How will the new Bronco trim measure up to rivals?

The Bronco already holds a unique spot in Ford’s U.S. lineup as the only
SUV
truly living up to its “sports utility,” but it’s not the only boxless vehicle on the market that arrives from the factory ready for the trails.
The
Jeep Wrangler
is the Bronco’s most obvious competition, and the Raptor will resemble its Rubicon 392 trim the most. 
The Rubicon actually has a 470-hp V8 engine, but because the Wrangler’s regular V6 only offers 285 hp, the twin-turboed Raptor sits closer in capability to the higher trim. 
The V8 might give the Wrangler a bit of a power advantage, but it comes at a price. The Rubicon 392 already costs over $10,000 more than the expected price tag of the Bronco Raptor.

What will car insurance for the Ford Bronco Raptor cost?

It’s too early to know the average
car insurance
rate for a Ford Bronco Raptor, but the average premium for a current Bronco is about $130 a month, almost exactly the same average as the rate for a Jeep Wrangler. 
Upgrading to a Rubicon 392 will add about $200 a year, so you can expect the Raptor trim to have a similar if ever so slightly smaller effect, thanks to the difference in engine size.
But these average prices don’t mean you’ll be stuck with that exact rate. There are plenty of ways to save, and the easiest one is to shop with
