Ford’s newest monster truck is a thirsty beast.

The Ford Bronco Raptor is set to be the most powerful version of the model when it goes on sale this summer.

The four-door SUV comes with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 rated at 400 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque.

It’s also equipped with a high performance suspension system that gives it a taller and broader stance than other Broncos, plus 37-inch-tall knobby all-terrain tires.
