What, if any, enhancements are expected to the 2023 Bronco Raptor? 2-door option? V8? Better gas mileage? Since I don’t have a snowballs chance in hell of getting my hands on a ‘22, might as well look forward to any minor updates or modifications….

I don’t believe any changes have been announced

Not anticipating any Bronco Raptor enhancements and updates would be limited to carry over parts from Bronco that’s been revised for MY 2023. There was not a 2023 MY Bronco Raptor planned as MY 2023 was a orders catch-up year for Bronco. MY 2023 Bronco Raptor is now happening due to not having capability to complete all 2022 Bronco Raptor orders.

That’s exactly why I’ll have a 2023 model. Just an unfinished carryover

Looks like no changes for the 23 Raptor. Azure Blue was added as a paint option, Eruption Green might have been taken away.

No Eruption Green on the Raptors for 2023 and added Azure Gray as an option. Only other change I could see is the loss of the front roof top storage bags as standard is an option now, but says it is standard. The roof storage bags may need to be selected like Roof Liner for Marine Grade Vinyl seats.

Edit: Velocity Blue and Cyber Orange are also gone.

Wait....am I seeing Velocity Blue gone??? That is what I want!!!!
I'm surprised to see VB & EG missing from Raptor, no Blue or Green Raptor's seems like an odd decision, leaving Raptor with basic colors of: White, Black, Red, & Silver/Gray unless A51 & Azure Gray is considered shades of blue.

I agree... Green was a great color on the Raptor... maybe it was too popular and they wanted to shake it up... IDK

Well I for one just got sick to my stomach....I honestly feel for the first time like just throwing in the towel. I even called a dealership selling a Velocity Blue just find out he was only advertising his customers. I mean you really almost can't trust anything....

Try calling Ford Performance customer support 1-800-367-3788 and plead your case. It could also be a mistake on the color chart, I'm hoping.

Just got off the phone with them. My order is now in a paint error code status. Josh told me I need to get that resolved and submitted as soon as possible when it opens up. He apologized as there is nothing he can do. We know why paint error code status.....Velocity Blue. 😔

Next thing you know, someone will tell us that Santa and the Easter Bunny aren't real.

Get your laughs in if it helps you feel better. Hard to when you're upset...kinda like imagining someone just drove into the side of your new BR feeling!
F-150 Raptors have always had at least one Blue, shocking VB was omitted without a Blue replacement.

Appears in the pictures that Azure Gray metallic has a blue tone, similiar to A51.
