Bronco Raptor at the Bronco Super Celebration (East), Townsend TN April 20-23

I sent an e-mail to the staff at the Bronco Super Celebration and asked them if Ford would have the Bronco Raptor there and this was their response. "Yes the Raptor Bronco is suppose to be here Wed-Sat 9-5".

Some of the best pictures yet! Going by the grain I think I see, it looks like those are the leather seats. I really like the darker suade (or grippy material) just below the head rests. Great shot of the rear compartment too.

In the pic with the headlight controls, what are the two buttons on the left? I see it's something to do with the mirrors but the symbol looks like a separate light control?

It is a separate light control for the light on the bottom of the mirror. Kind of like a puddle light I guess. Yes the seats are very supportive and very comfortable.

Well my pictures are pretty much exactly what BRVOL has with drool added...haha. It was so nice seeing it today with the top and doors off and really being able to get up close. I just don't think anyone is going to be disappointed.....

Totally agree. IMO Ford knocked this one out of the park. I'm sure there will be a few issues but the core of what they did is solid.

Thanks for posting all these photos! Looks like it has mostly a black bumper with only silver recovery hooks and skid plate. That's better than having the silver on the bumper between the recovery hooks like we have seen on the Code Orange Bronco Raptors.

I still don't understand why they didn't do all-black bumper and skids and just do Code Orange tow hooks. Nothing on this vehicle is that silver and it just feels like a designer wanted to "break things up" by throwing it on there. It's probably my biggest gripe about the new Bronco Raptor.

Yeah, it really stands out. Maybe they were thinking silver would be better for the skid plate because when it gets beat up the scratches/gouges will be silver? I know I can find a rattle can of black ;)

I was told they kept it silver because that's what they traditionally have done with the F-150 Raptor.

I agree on the silver color because if this is not going to be a pavement princess then it will get scratched and powder coat would scratch away and look worse

I’m pretty sure they will all be silver, this is probably just one of the earlier test ones. I like the silver better and will be disappointed if mode shows up black.

I also noticed in the pics that the orange trim on the console mounted grab handle is not there on either side.

My guess is that when you order the CF they delete the orange trim. Looks like about one third of the orange trim could still be in place but Ford must have chosen not to add any.
