The MegaRexx MegaRaptor gets a little bother.
Few production pickup trucks are more outlandish than the 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor. There's the Ram 1500 TRX with 702 horsepower, but even that seems tame compared to what aftermarket tuners are cranking out. Hennessey kicked it off more than half a decade ago with the insane VelociRaptor, and now other companies have jumped in the market with their own unique creations. We recently covered an F-250 Super Duty-based build called the MegaRaptor built by a company called Megarexx. The MegaRaptor packs a 6.7-liter twin-turbo diesel V8 with 1,050 lb-ft of torque.
Megarexx is back again, announcing a new truck to sit below the MegaRaptor as its "little brother." Say hello to the Megarexx MegaBronc, a crossbreed between a Ford Bronco and Raptor. Like its big brother, the MegaBronc is based on a 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab Lariat, but with extensive modifications.
Believe it or not, the the massive MegaBronc is slightly smaller than the MegaRaptor (the two are pictured below for context). It sits on smaller 40-inch tires (compared to 46-inches for the MegaRaptor) and only features a slight lift to "keep the vehicle's center of gravity low," according to the press release. Yeah, okay. Other changes include an increased track width for stability, longer travel suspension (4.5-inch Icon® progressive front coil springs and five-inch multi-leaf rear springs), and larger fenders to accommodate the tires.
Megarexx's most significant changes take place up front, where the MegaBronc adopts the grille and headlights from a Ford Bronco. The transplant looks a bit odd on the F-250's massive body, but we can see why some buyers would like it.
At the back, the MegaBronc manages to recreate the Bronco's removable roof in a unique way. This truck is now a seven-seater with a removable hardtop in the former bed. It seems difficult to get back there, but riding in the open third-row seems like a lot of fun. Megarexx sourced the power-folding third-row seats from the Expedition, while the second-row captain's chairs now match the front-row seats.
Inside, all of the OEM technology, including blind spot monitoring, the panoramic moonroof, heated and cooled seats, heated steering wheel, keyless entry with remote start, and reverse sensors are all preserved. Power comes from a stock Ford 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel engine, dishing out 475 hp and 1,050 lb-ft of torque mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
If the MegaBronc appeals to you, it's for sale for $199,000.
