I do believe the Raptor Bronco (if ever made) will offer the highest powered engine and only be exclusive to that trim. Just like the early Raptor's had with 6.2L gas engine. I would love to see the fullsize 3.5 ecoboost in it but my bet would be on the biggest ecoboost offered in the Bronco with a specific factory tune offering about 50-100 more hp. Just my guess.
In terms of pricing, absolutely the top level trim will reach $50k considering what Rubicon's fetch. But I think Ford should really perform their due diligence and determine whether a new, unproven Bronco can compete with a Rubicon, price wise. Rubicon's didn't just start out at $50k, they built a long standing level of respect from Jeep enthusiasts and off-roaders alike. Its very well equipped from the factory. If Fords wants to slap a similar price tag on it, they need to do more than offer the same options. They have to take it one step further to draw an undecided buyer over to the Blue Oval camp. As much as I'm a Bronco fan, a Rubicon has proven itself over and over again in every category....sales, reviews, performance, resale, etc.
