SHOOTOUT! Does The Bronco Raptor Put UTVs To SHAME?!

Can an $82,500 Ford Bronco Raptor make a $35,000 Kawasaki KRX look silly?

When Ford said they were sending us a 2023 Bronco Raptor, we were hit with a mix of excitement to get our hands on one of the year’s most hotly anticipated trucks, and confidence that the $82,500 rig would pale in comparison to one of our favorite UTVs. We thought for sure the 2023 Kawasaki KRX 4 1000 eS would wipe the trail with the big bronco, thanks to its trick suspension, lighter curb weight, and purpose-built attitude.

But then the Bronco showed up with a trailer hitch, and we started to wonder if our assumption was wrong. We decided to put the Bronco through the wringer by asking it to tow the KRX to the trailhead, wheel alongside it all day, and then tow it back to our shop. Check out the link to see how the Bronco stacked up. Our verdict surprised us.
