With the introduction of Ford’s hugely popular new Bronco range, we knew it was only a matter of time before we saw someone convert the revived SUV model into a 6×6 conversion.
And while we’ve seen countless renders of the six-wheeled Bronco, Fort Lauderdale’s Apocalypse 6×6 completes what is widely regarded as the first Bronco 6×6 completed with what the Floridian Store aptly calls the “Dark Horse.”
Starting with an all-new bony Bronco, the Apocalypse 6×6 drastically changed the donor, transforming the SUV into a patented tandem center axle, steel side steps, integrated LED light bars, and auxiliary lighting, custom Kevlar-coated front end. and rear bumpers, 4-foot lift with steering stabilizer, and 20-foot custom SFJ alloy wheels with 37-foot Milestar Patagonia M/T tires. The 6×6 setup now measures 225 feet bumper-to-bumper—36 feet longer than the stock Bronco—and also includes a tailgate-mounted full-size spare wheel, a custom 5-foot bearing, and an extended fender kit.
Inside, The Dark Horse features the Apocalypse 6×6’s Black Diamond hardware package, a removable custom raked-back hardtop, King Ranch dark brown and black marine-grade leather upholstery, and removable headliners. The Ford-based 6×6 is powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 engine with revised ECU, larger injectors, and a new exhaust that now delivers a 400hp starter. The Apocalypse 6×6 also said it plans to offer upgradeable options for the Bronco model, including paintwork with a Kevlar coating and an existing 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine upgrade with over 700 horsepower.
While pricing has yet to be announced, we expect the Bronco 6×6 Dark Horse to be priced well in the six figures. The first completed unit is slated to ride under Barrett Jackson’s tow truck at the upcoming 2022 Palm Beach sale on April 9, where the custom six-wheeler will be offered with no reserve price.
