In this day and age, everything seems to be exaggerated. Everything around us is positioned to be called “the best”, but does any of it live up to the hype? When Ford set out to produce their most capable off-road SUV, the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor, they certainly exceeded everyone’s expectations. But actually driving one might leave you with the same impression it left on Matt: It may just be the BEST off-road vehicle ever made.
Such a bold statement requires some explanation. And that’s exactly what our host sets out to do on this episode of Chasing Dust. Matt goes over his five criteria when judging an off-road vehicle: Tire, Suspension, Performance, Chassis, and Luxury. Explaining his opinion on each criteria, and how the Bronco Raptor fares against it’s opponents paints a better picture as to why this may be the best off-road vehicle ever produced.
And remember, the only modification made to this vehicle thus far is changing out the stock tires for a set of 37x12.50R17 Nitto Recon Grapplers. Matt’s previous builds were on Recon Grapplers, and he trusts them to get the job done for this rig as well, this time in bigger size.
