Back in January, Ford revealed the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor and Ford Motor Company has stated that the majority of the 2022 models in production will go to existing reservation holders (Golden Ticket Holders) based on their reservation timestamp. The end of that month (January), Ford began reaching out to the holders and gauged their interest for the Bronco Raptor via email. But now the window for the "hand raisers" that want to order their BR closes after today (March 29th).
Those that are interested in doing just that have to follow a few simple steps to complete the process. First, customers should use Ford’s build and price configurator to spec their Bronco Raptor before taking that info to their preferred Blue Oval dealer to place the actual order. Finally, the only thing left to do is wait, as 2022 Bronco Raptor deliveries are on track to begin this summer and continue through the remainder of the 2022 model year.
In addition to this information, Ford has made one small change to the Bronco Raptor ahead of production. The standard decal has been replaced by the graphic delete option, which prompted Ford to refund customers who have already spec’d it $100. Those that wish to add graphics to their off-road SUV can still opt for the upgraded Raptor graphic package, which retails for $1,075. Additionally, Ford’s tube doors – which are available on every other Bronco model – cannot be paired with the Raptor, as Ford Authority reported earlier this month.
Like in the previous article that @trydntru posted, the first production Bronco Raptor will be sold at Barrett-Jackson's upcoming Palm Beach auction for charity. As we have found out with our Golden Ticket Holders, its going to be hard to get a good deal on one of these BR. Lot of dealers marking up the limited amount of Bronco Raptors they are allocated. With the starting prices just shy of $70k, we will most likely see quite a few of these "first off the lot" Bronco Raptors going for 6 figures this summer!
So, if you are in the market for one of these off road beasts, it's time to get your reservation in (if you can!)!
