2022 Bronco Raptor
Planning to attend later today and on Saturday. Hoping to get my first close up look at the Bronco Raptor as seen in the morning News video below. Ford Performance appears to be located at 11 1/2 mile and Woodward.

Nice! I hope they allow you good access to it. Are you going to make the Mustang reveal as well?

I think the Mustang reveal is planned for the Sep autoshow and yes I'm hoping to also be there. Maybe I'll get into tonight's 7:30pm Mustang enthusiast meeting just by being there...

I don't think it's common knowledge that the new Mustang is on the S650 chassis, same as the current 2020-2023 Explorer.

I'm pretty sure they are announcing the new Mustang tonight. That's what I've been hearing anyways.

Did they take the wraps off or just tease it for a later release?
It had a black satin sheet over it, I think everyone thought it was going to be an early reveal, but when they pulled off the sheet it was the camo car above. To be officially revealed on Sep 14th at the North American International Auto Show (Detroit).

Do you have any new thoughts after getting to see the BR in person?

These photo's are all within the Ford area, mostly Ford Performance vehicles. It's very crowed at the dream cruise so it's always difficult to get a good clean pic.

The Bronco Raptor is Big, after all the photo's and video's I've seen here on this site, it was still overwhelmingly cool and it exceeded my visual expectations. :love: Understandably the doors were locked on all the vehicles, however it was nice the top was off on the Code Orange BR for viewing the interior. Black leather looked very high quality, actually the entire vehicle quality met my expectations and has a very Solid appearance. (y)(y) The Bronco Raptor was also grabbing the most attention, but then it's the latest model in the lineup.

The Code Orange changes shades drastically, initially as we stood behind the 4 Code Orange vehicles in a row which was on the shaded side they actually appeared different colors of red/orange, it wasn't until we seen them all on the sunny side that it was a OMG they are all Code Orange like we had expected. :cool:

In the evening sun from the front I was surprised the fender flares were metallic black, but after viewing the photo's closer it was actually road or off-road sandblasting that gave them the effect. EDIT 09Sep22, I stand corrected, flares are metallic black as confirmed on my own BR with only 7.7 miles.

The chassis was also on display and I took quite a few close up's in case any of us need details later from the top side. I also tryed to take detailed photo's in area's that we may not have posted here yet.

The Graphics looked better than I expected, those that ordered the optional graphics package will be happy with their decision. :cool:
