The Apocalypse Manufacturing team picked up a new Ford Bronco and converted it into a fully functional six-wheel drive vehicle. The Dark Horse is what the company calls a petty breeding because this stallion has a petty streak.
At the front, the Ford Bronco 6×6 features a new bumper with a light bar in the center and lights stacked on each side. It also has some huge tow hooks. The updated suspension gives the rig a lift of 4.0 inches (10.16 centimeters).
Apocalypse Manufacturing raises the power of the twin-turbo V6 to 400 horsepower (298 kilowatts). Adjustments include revised software, larger injectors, increased boost and a new exhaust.
The biggest changes are at the back. The company extends the bucket and fenders to make room for the extra axle. A revised roof panel has extra side and rear windows that aren't on a stock Bronco. A full-size spare wheel is mounted on the tailgate. The extension brings the vehicle's bumper-to-bumper length to 225 inches (5,715 meters).
Bronco Manufacturing uses rugged Milestar Patagonia M/T 37-inch tires. The dried mud on the sidewalls in some of the images tells us that the Apocalypse 6x6 is getting some off-road use from this pickup.
The upholstered interior has marine-grade leather in a brown and black color scheme.
The Apocalypse Manufacturing builds include the Ram-TRX based Warlord. For US $ 250,000, buyers receive the burly bronco with a raised ride height and a style bar over the bucket. Power remains unchanged from a supercharged 6.2-liter V8, producing 702 horsepower (534 kilowatts) and 650 pound-feet (881 Newton-meters) of torque.
There is also the Hellfire based on Jeep-Gladiator. The company offers a variety of engines, including a GM-sourced LS3 V8, Hellcat V8 or a 3.0-liter twin-turbo diesel. It has a menacing front with cross-eyed lights and a protruding hood.
Apocalypse Manufacturing isn't alone working on a six-wheel drive Bronco. Maxlider Brothers Customs showed a rendering for a in 2021. The company said construction began at US $ 399,000 and intended to begin deliveries in 2022.
Ford is expanding the Bronco lineup with several new entries and options. The Raptor model is the most notable on the way. There is also the Everglades which comes with a factory snorkel. There is also the HOSS 3.0 package for Wild Trak trim level.
