INFORMATION
New 2022 Model Year Bronco Content Announcement - Exterior Colors, Roof Options, Bumper Options

 

ACTION REQUESTED

  • Review below Bronco Content Update effective for 2022 Model Year
  • Work with customers wanting to make updates to their order when the 2022MY order back opens

SUMMARY
We are excited to announce several content changes effective for 2022 Model Year Production. Look out for more information in the coming weeks!

 

2022MY Color Changes

  • New Colors for 22MY: Eruption Green, Hot Pepper Red – Available on all series
  • Retired Colors after 21MY scheduled Closing: Antimatter Blue, Lightning Blue Metallic, Rapid Red Metallic
  • Expanded Color Availability: Cyber Orange will be available on all series, adding Base & Big Bend for 2022MY offerings

Wildtrak Roof Options
We’ve been listening to your feedback and are excited to announce that effective with 22MY production, customers will have the option to order a soft top roof with the 4-door Wildtrak series.

Adding the soft top as an option for 4-door 2022 Wildtrak orders will help these customers get their order quicker.

We are unable to offer customers the option to switch their Wildtrak orders to soft tops for 21MY because of the complexity involved in changing standard equipment mid-model year.

 

Bumper Options

  • New for 22MY: Capable Bumper (powder-coated steel)
    • Standard for 22MY Black Diamond and Badland orders
  • Updated for 22MY: Modular Front Bumper becomes an option on all series

ORDERING
Customers interested in switching their Wildtrak order to a soft top for 2022 model year production are able to do so when the 2022MY order bank opens. We will have more information around the process and timing in the coming weeks.

SUMMARY
Bronco™ brand, Ford’s outdoor brand of Built Wild™ and only-4x4 vehicles, debuted today the ultimate desert-running and boulder-crawling 2022 Bronco Raptor. Geared for highway-speed desert off-roading and hardcore rock crawling, Bronco Raptor is designed and engineered by Ford Performance, the same team that engineers the F-150 Raptor, as the world’s first Ultra4-inspired SUV. 

Bronco Raptor will make its in-person debut Thursday, February 3rd at the 2022 King of the Hammers Ultra4 race event in Johnson Valley, California.

 

Bronco Raptor Features & Capability

  • Extreme Built Wild capability includes technology such as:
    • Raptor-exclusive 400+ HP 3.0L twin-turbo EcoBoost® engine with specific Raptor-level tuning to meet Ford Performance standards
    • Unique G.O.A.T. Modes
  • Bronco Raptor is built for off-road performance with exclusive standard:
    • 37-inch BF Goodrich all-terrain tires
    • Raptor HOSS 4.0 w/ FOX Live Valve 3.1 Internal Bypass Semi-Active Dampers
    • Upgraded chassis and suspension including: new Dana 50 rear axle, upgraded front A-arms and knuckles, and strengthened steering rack and tie rods
    • Standard front and rear locking differentials and stabilizer bar disconnect
  • Other key features include:
    • Exclusive 4-Door with Molded In Color Hardtop ONLY
    • Even more confident high-speed cornering, plus unique muscular fenders, and massive fender flares for an overall width 9.8 inches wider than a standard Bronco
    • Ten exterior color options with a Raptor exclusive Code Orange 
    • Three different interior options; two leather-trimmed/vinyl and one marine grade vinyl  
  • 2022 model year Bronco Raptor orders open in March, with vehicles beginning to arrive this summer.

 

Production & Allocation
Bronco Raptor will be produced throughout the remainder of the 2022 Model Year with deliveries beginning this summer. Like other specialty vehicles, production is very limited.

  • More details surrounding individual dealership allocations will be available during the May Wholesale cycle which starts at the end of February.

 

January 24 Customer CRM – Attached Below
In addition to launching the Bronco Raptor we are sending a communication to unscheduled order holders tied to a reservation today.  The communication will allow them to express their interest in receiving a 2022 model year Bronco Raptor.

  • Audience: Unscheduled Order Holders Tied To A Reservation
  • Key Messages
    • Introduction of Bronco Raptor & Features
    • Opportunity to express interest in Bronco Raptor
    • We have saved some allocation spots exclusively for unscheduled order holders tied to a reservation
    • Call To Action To Express Interest By February 3rd
      • Expressing interest does not guarantee a customer will receive a Bronco Raptor

 

Selection for the allocation spots will be based on a customer's original reservation time stamp. Customers, and their corresponding dealership, will be notified of their status on February 11th. No action is required by dealerships at this time.

 

Note: As a best practice, keep orders on a 99 priority code if a customer has expressed their interest in waiting for the Bronco Raptor or others features that are not yet available (i.e. Black Modular Painted Hardtop) to prevent premature scheduling.
