South Dakota Can Buy New Ford Bronco Raptor in 2022

What can Sioux Falls area car shoppers expect from the Ford Bronco Raptor?

Ever since its re-introduction to the SUV lineup, Ford truck enthusiasts have asked our dealership, "Will Ford make a Bronco Raptor?" What an amazing idea! After all, the Ford F-150 Raptor pickup truck is an automotive beast, and the thought of its off-road styling and performance being incorporated on the already-rugged Bronco SUV is a South Dakota driver's dream vehicle.

Well, this dream will soon become a reality for drivers from Mitchell to Sioux Falls (and everywhere in between). Just days removed from Ford's announcement of new Bronco colors for the 2022 model year, the automaker released a teaser video for a special edition Ford Bronco Raptor that will make its debut after the new year. It’s only fitting that an SUV with a dedicated Badlands trim level would unleash such an adventurous, off-road-capable vehicle that South Dakotans are sure to love.

By now, your excitement is probably at maximum levels, and the staff here at Vern Eide Ford is equally thrilled. But now for the bad news: details for the new Bronco Raptor are very limited at this time. However, MotorTrend has been keeping a close eye on spy photos of this highly anticipated SUV and they predict the Ford Bronco Raptor will be outfitted with an enhanced suspension, 37-inch tires, and Fox™ Shocks with Live Valve™ Technology. As for exterior design elements, performance specs, and interior stylings? We’re sure to learn more of these details as the Bronco Raptor release date gets closer.

Ford Bronco Raptor Price and Release Date

Since we’ve established there will be a Raptor version of the Bronco, one of the biggest questions Ford drivers are sure to have will pertain to pricing. How much will the 2022 Bronco Raptor cost? While Ford is yet to make an official announcement on a Bronco Raptor price—or whether it will be released as a 2022 or 2023 model—the auto experts at Car and Driver are predicting the new Ford Bronco Raptor will have a starting MSRP of around $65,000 when it arrives at dealerships next year.

And speaking of when, when should South Dakota car drivers expect the Bronco Raptor for sale in Mitchell at Vern Eide Ford? As we previously mentioned, the automaker has been tight-lipped about the details of this new special edition SUV, and that goes for the Bronco Raptor’s release date as well.

Ford has only revealed that it will begin production after the new year and there’s no word yet on whether it will fall under the 2022 or 2023 model year. In the meantime, as we all patiently wait for the Ford Bronco Raptor release date to arrive, please reach out to our team with any questions you may have.
