Ford Performance earned its second consecutive victory in the stock mid-size class, retaining its title from its 2022 winning run in Ranger Raptor.
Victories in both stock classes by Ford Performance underscore its continued commitment to vehicle development under the most stressful conditions, with tech transfer to consumer models.

The 2024 Ford Bronco Raptor brings it all to the table when it comes to high-performance off-road capabilities. Ford Authority recently spotted an example out and about, sporting a coat of Shelter Green, a new color for the 2024 model year. Below, we break down everything you need to know about the earthy green hue.
Shelter Green is tagged with paint code DB. It is a no-cost option, and is exclusively available on the range-topping Raptor. It can be outfitted with all interior colorways available for the 2024 Ford Bronco Raptor, which are as follows:
Black Onyx (marine grade vinyl)
Black Onyx (leather-trimmed vinyl)

The sixth-generation Ford Bronco is currently in its third model year, though the high-performance off-road-focused Ford Bronco Raptor just debuted for the 2022 model year. Thus far, aside from some dealer stock, the Bronco Raptor has been limited to carryover reservation and order holders, though that may change very soon. Now, Ford Authority has spotted a 2024 Ford Bronco Raptor wearing not only a new paint color, but also some revised graphics as well.
For starters, the most obvious change here is the Shelter Green Metallic paint that covers the flanks of this 2024 Ford Bronco Raptor, which is currently an exclusive hue only available on the brand new 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor. Aside from that, this particular SUV is equipped with...
Advanced Fiberglass Concepts Bronco Raptor fenders
"This concept isn’t exactly new, as ADV already makes and sells these same wide fiberglass fenders for the regular Ford Bronco – which appeared on Baja Forge’s 2021 SEMA Show concept – as well as fiberglass hardtops as an alternative to the OEM molded-in color piece. However, it has now added something similar to its catalog for Ford Bronco Raptor customers, too.
These new Bronco Raptor fiberglass fenders are for the front only, though the existing rear units from ADV will fit this particular model, too. Shoppers can choose from two different sizes – a 4.5-inch flare with a one-inch rise, or a 7.5-inch piece, also with a one-inch rise, but either way, these fenders reportedly fit...
Since its launch, the high-performance Ford Bronco Raptor has garnered rave reviews from critics and fans alike, not only in the U.S. – but also other parts of the world, including Mexico and the Middle East. However, like most in-demand vehicles these days, the Ford Bronco Raptor has also proven to be difficult to obtain, particularly since the rugged SUV is only available for existing order holders, or via dealer stock, where it’s routinely sold with massive markups attached to the MSRP. Unfortunately for the select few that can order one or purchase it at sticker price, that endeavor continues to get more expensive, too, as the price of the 2023 Ford Bronco Raptor has risen once again.
After originally launching with a $68,500 MSRP...
Whipple Superchargers has unveiled a Stage 1 tuning kit designed for Ford Bronco Raptor owners, aiming to boost the performance of the vehicle's twin-turbocharged V6 engine. The kit enhances horsepower, torque, and drivability while adjusting elements such as transmission shift points. The stock Bronco Raptor's 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6, which generates 418 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque, receives an additional 60 horsepower and 80 pound-feet with the tuning kit when running on 93-octane gasoline. This elevates the SUV's overall output to 478 and 520, respectively. The kit also provides a more linear power curve by making more torque accessible at around 2,000 rpm and updates the 10-speed automatic transmission's shift points to...
