Man, did I luck out.

So I'm looking hard at a 392. Did 3 test drives and I'm ready to pull the trigger on the sound alone. I having owned a lifted Rubicon that I loved, I knew the 392 would be a blast.

I actually put my deposit down and that same night I wanted to check to see if any Braptors were for sale. Just by chance I see a silver Braptor for sale at the Ford Dealer. Uhmm, being in Toronto this was the first time I had actually seen one in the Autotrder or anywhere for that matter. I had called at least 20 dealers who all said get in line for your 12-24 month wait.

I call the dealer and ask if they have a silver bronco raptor for sale.

Rep: Yup
Me: Errr, how much over
Rep: List
Me: uhmm, the silver ford brono raptor? It's available and it's for sale at list? and this is actually on your lot
Rep: Yup
Me: ok, i buy :)
Rep: do you want to see it?
Me: noooo, take my money right now please


The vehicle gets shipped out within a few days and arrives early.

Wicked luck!! I just drove across Canada in November, I called every ford dealer I could along my way (I’m in Vancouver) I ordered a 22 was rolled to a 23 like most people but mine will cost more than yours and only have the lux and beadlock, I found a few at MSRP in winnipeg but they were already sold by the time I called, there’s a couple available in Alberta but they want 30K over 😭 so I still wait for the order I made in March 😂 but my dealer text me yesterday saying I should get a build date in the next few weeks 🤞🏻 Anyway CONGRATS looks sick! And I’m happy to see some more make it into Canada 🇨🇦

Welcome to the forum and congrats on finding the deal of the year! Props to the dealer for actually selling it at MSRP.

While running some errands the other day I saw a code orange at one of our local Ford dealerships. They are asking $127,995 for it!

I wanted a Jeep but lucked into a Bronco Raptor. Consider yourself lucky not that you may care some of us have been waiting an extremely long time.

I hope you enjoy your new ride!!!

Congrats! I'm hoping to finally get my allocation and order started.

Since you've now driven both, how would you compare/contrast the 392 vs. the BRaptor? I've wondered about the 392 as I have a lifted Gladiator now.

Hey thanks so much everyone!! Appreciate the kind words and hope you are all enjoying your Braptor. For those waiting, it worth the wait :)

As far as the 392 comparison, there really is none. You can find comparisons all day long but once you have actually put some miles on both the braptor is better in every way. Ride, cabin, finish, upgrades, and exclusivity.

BUT, the 392 has that oh so killer sound. I mean it sounds really really really good. I really dont think you could go wrong with either.
