Who knew that the confusing camouflage on a vehicle could be more than a concealment of the contents underneath? We’ve previously seen this type of camo on Ford Raptor mules, which seemed to be dark spots from far away. Thanks to an Instagram post, we’ve now seen similar camo up close on a Ford Bronco, and it turns out some of the dizzying dark spots are actually little pictographs. It seems the good folks at Ford want us to speculate as to what’s going on here, so here we go. What’s Ford trying to say with the coded camouflage on what might be a Bronco Raptor (or will it bear the name Warthog)?
Note that one section of the wrap is upside down, while other pieces are sideways. We spotted over 20 different pictures that highlight nature, animals, and things pertaining to the Bronco. We don’t blatantly see a warthog, Sasquatch, or a dinosaur. Some of these pictures could be there just for fun, while others are indicative of Bronco Easter eggs. What did we get right? What did we miss?
Bucking Bronco: The “Built Wild” bucking horse, along with the trail sights on the corners of the hood, confirm that this is camouflage on a Ford Bronco. A Bronco that would still be camouflaged at this point is the Bronco’s equivalent to the F-150 Raptor, which may also go by Raptor or possibly Warthog.
Lightning Bolt: A possible call-out to an electric or hybrid Ford Bronco aimed at competing with the equivalent Jeep Wrangler.
Goat: Bronco’s Terrain Management System that offers seven G.O.A.T. modes.
Snowy Mountain: Black Diamond trim.
Another Snowy Mountain: Badlands trim.
Pine Trees: Mud/Ruts, one of the G.O.A.T. modes.
Boulders: Rock Crawl, one of the G.O.A.T. modes.
River (or Something Procreation Related): Outer Banks trim (or, chicks really dig the Bronco).
Alligator: Everglades Green (or something to do with “Everglades”?).
American Flag: Bronco is built at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant, the same place as the Ranger.
Cactus: Sand, one of the G.O.A.T. modes.
Cactus and Sun: Baja, one of the G.O.A.T. modes.
Snorkel and Goggles: Air intake snorkel for deep water crossings.
Raining Cloud: Slippery, one of the G.O.A.T. modes.
Lasso: Cargo space tie-down hooks.
Unicorn: Finding a Bronco of your own is like finding a unicorn since it’s seemingly impossible to snag an example of the Blue Oval’s SUV. Or is that the tusk of a warthog?
Instagram: Bronco is going to be revealed or highlighted on Instagram.
