- As the Raptor is to the F-150, the Warthog will be to the Bronco.
- Prototype pairs beadlock-capable wheels with what look like Fox Live Valve adaptive shocks.
- Flared fenders hint at big power under the hood.
Ford hasn't been shy about showing off the not-yet-for-sale 2021 Bronco, even when it's still wrapped up in camo. The high-performance Bronco prototype you see here, nicknamed Warthog, features poorly concealed fender flares that have us wondering if the engine — likely a turbocharged V6 — will cross the 400-horsepower threshold.
But that's just speculation. What we can clearly see in these spy shots are Raptor-spec wheels and tires, along with special shock absorbers that are likely similar to the Raptor's Fox Live Valve shocks.
So let's take a look at what those parts do and what it means for the Warthog. Or Bronco Raptor. Or Brontor. Whatever, just build it already.
