Orders for the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor have been exclusive for current reservation holders, but that won’t keep people from looking for ways to get their hands on the highly desirable new SUV. Unfortunately, a new disclaimer discovered by Edmunds states that the current model year for the BRaptor is no longer available for retail orders.
Ford Bronco Raptor: Reservation Details
Reservations for the Bronco Raptor began in early March, just a few days after orders for the standard Broncos closed. Prospective buyers had a very short amount of time to reserve the vehicle before the entire run of 2022 BRaptors sold out. However, all hope is not lost as those that can’t wait for Ford to open the order books for the 2023 Bronco Raptor can try to buy a 2022 model from a dealer lot. Although it might be challenging to find one, and there will undoubtedly be a ludicrous markup on the vehicle in addition to having to settle for a vehicle that might not be exactly what you’re looking for.
Ford has had a lot of popular new vehicles where demand exceeds supply, causing the manufacturer to close the order books seemingly as quickly as they opened in an effort to try and even the playing field before the start of the next production year. The 2022 F-150 has recently seen a close to the order books along with the F-150 Lightning in April and the 2022 Maverick last December. The best bet is to wait until the 2023 model year to place your order on the Ford Bronco Raptor, but if things continue as they are, it’ll be wise to act as quickly as possible.
While the driving experience of the Ford Bronco Raptor has been reserved for a small number of people, customers that have managed to place their orders should start to see deliveries of the 2022 SUV this summer as it begins production out of the Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan.
