The interior of the Ford Bronco Raptor is built for purpose and the emphasis is on hardy materials and not on plush finishes. The floor is rubberized, can be washed out, and features drain plugs. The design is straight-lined and angular, and the switches and fittings are big and easy to use while wearing gloves. Traditional rugged styling cues are juxtaposed with the latest tech, and the dashboard houses a huge touchscreen display and a digital gauge cluster. You can opt for more premium materials, such as leather, but it defies the purpose of the Raptor. The space inside is the same as that in other four-door Broncos.
Access is easy through big door openings, but it's quite a step up, thanks to the 13 inches of ground clearance. Grab handles on the sides of the dashboard help you climb into the front; in the rear, there are handles on the B-pillars. There is also a big center-console-mounted Ford Performance grab handle picked out in orange for the front passenger to hold onto when the going gets rough.
The Ford Bronco Raptor's seats are manually adjustable but power adjustment is optionally available, although it's not essential for a Baja bruiser that can be driven without a roof and doors. The seats are heated as standard, though, so you'll still be toasty in winter. Seating capacity is a maximum of five passengers in two rows, with plenty of interior space up front and masses of headroom - even in the rear, you get 41.1 inches of it. Rear legroom is perfectly sufficient, too, and although 36.6 inches isn't class-leading - and beaten by the Wrangler - average-sized adults will be comfortable.

There is a limited number of interior colors for the Ford Bronco Raptor, and the standard interior with the marine-grade mildew-resistant vinyl on the seats can only be had in Black Onyx/Black Onyx. For $2,495, leather upholstery is available, and then you get access to two color schemes - the same Black Onyx as the base interior or Black Onyx/Blue, where the seats are dark blue with red shaded center accenting; dark blue is also used on other trim pieces such as on the door cards. Whichever option you choose, there is orange stitching on the seats and orange accenting throughout the interior - on the door-pocket netting, the center console, the air-vent grips, the grab handles, and in the form of the steering wheel's upper dead-ahead marker, in addition to the orange "BRONCO" lettering on the passenger side of the dashboard. The floor is covered with a rubberized mat that can be washed out and features drain holes. The sport steering wheel is leather-trimmed, and a sound-deadening headliner for the removable hard top is optionally available.
The Ford Bronco Raptor's cargo space is around six percent down on the normal four-door Bronco, but there is still a generous 33.4 cu-ft of trunk volume available behind the second row, significantly more than in a Wrangler Unlimited. This can be expanded to 73 cu-ft with the 60/40-split second row folded. The side-swinging rear tailgate opens to the passenger side and is held open by a gas strut; the rear glass is attached to the removable hard top and swings upward conventionally, also supported by gas struts.
Interior storage is decent and includes two front cupholders alongside the gear shifter, two rear cupholders, a lidded center-console storage compartment, an open storage area ahead of the shifter where the wireless charging pad lives if you tick that box, a traditional glovebox, netted door pockets front and rear (that aren't deep enough to hold water bottles), front-seatback net pockets, and MOLLE attachment points on the front seatbacks and on the inside of the rear tailgate door from which you can hang equipment. A vinyl roof storage back is optionally available for $180.
Because of its position at the top of the lineup, the Raptor gets most of the available features as standard. The seats might be manually adjustable and covered in marine-grade vinyl because of the outdoor focus and emphasis on practicality, but at least they're heated. You also get keyless entry, remote and push-button start, dual-zone climate control, a leather-trimmed steering wheel with manual tilting/telescoping adjustment, and the G.O.A.T. terrain-management system with seven modes. Optionally available are features such as leather upholstery, power seats, a wireless charger, additional hard-top sound deadening, storage solutions, and additional driver assists such as adaptive cruise control, some of these separately and some as part of packages or in combination with other features. A wireless charging pad is also available as part of the Lux package.
The infotainment system runs Sync 4 software, and you get dual 12-inch displays - a digital gauge cluster and a centrally mounted touchscreen. Features include voice recognition, wireless Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, connected navigation with a 90-day trial subscription (built-in navigation with three years of service optional), SiriusXM with 360L, AppLink and App Catalog, and a seven-speaker audio system including a subwoofer. Optionally, the subwoofer can be deleted at a cost saving of $250, or the audio system can be upgraded to a ten-speaker Bang & Olufsen setup as part of the $3,050 Lux package that contains various other extras.
The Bronco Raptor's trunk accommodates 33.4 cu-ft of cargo with the 60/40-split rear seat in place and 73 cu-ft with it folded down.
The Raptor has space for five passengers in two rows.
There are two cupholders in front and two in the rear.
