New Bronco Raptor Trim Set to Debut in April

  • New blacked-out Bronco Raptor is coming in April
  • The debut is happening after the total solar eclipse
  • Bronco customers are offered with $1,995 two-night camping package to see the eclipse
Ford announced that a new Bronco Raptor with a Blackout package will debut at a special Bronco Off-Roadeo event in Texas on April 8 following the total solar eclipse.

The Blue Oval company didn't go into details about what's inside the Blackout package. But as the name suggests, the go-to motif should be black, which should be interesting to see considering most of the design elements are already blacked-out off the lot. The mighty 3.0-liter V6 EcoBoost engine with up to 440 horsepower should be retained.

Unique Experience To Witness The Eclipse​

The event happening at the Bronco Off-Roadeo, an off-road driving school located in several states including Las Vegas, is open to Bronco and Bronco Sport customers for $1,995 for two nights of camping for up to four people.

The camping package consists of five meals and 60 guided Bronco Off-Roadeo trail drive slots, the latter of which is available to campers on a first-come, first-serve basis. A more affordable Half-Day Adventure package is also offered for $595, which provides two meals and a four-hour off-road excursion with assistance from trail guides.

Ford boasts that the Bronco Off-Roadeo Texas is the place to be to see the total eclipse expected to last approximately four minutes and 13 seconds. It will be visible within a 115-mile wide band from central Mexico to eastern Canada.


Bronco Raptor Is Going Dark Mode​

Of note, participants must bring their high-riding Ford Bronco to join the two-night camping experience. They must also have their own camping shelter and sleeping accommodations.

"94 percent of people who attend Bronco Off-Roadeo give it a 5-star review, according to our surveys. Now we're offering Bronco and Bronco Sport customers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that adds another star to the mix," said Matt Simpson, general manager, Ford Enthusiast Vehicles.

Upon the debut of the new Ford Bronco Raptor Blackout trim, the off-roader SUV will join the F-150 Lightning with the Platinum Black Package as blacked-out trims in the brand's lineup.

It'll be interesting to see what Ford does with the Bronco Raptor Black out package. If they follow suit with the Ford Lightning Platinum Black package we might see a Matt Black Wrap with black out parts and a special black interior.
