2023 Ford Bronco 6×6 Dark Horse – We expected that someone would convert a 4×4 Bronco to a 6×6 Bronco, and we were right. A Florida-based company called Apocalypse Manufacturing is anticipating the apocalypse. It has its “Dark Horse” in sparkling white. This isn’t the first time 6×6 trucks have been used for Apocalypse. Previous efforts included a 6×6 Jeep Gladiator and a 6×6 Ram TRX.
2023 Ford Bronco 6×6 Dark Horse Review
To accommodate the additional 37-inch tire, the Dark Horse has an extended body. The Bronco four-door Wheelbase measures 189 inches. This is an additional three feet. This increased the Bronco’s length to five feet. The Bronco also has beefed coil-overs that use the stock pickup points. The aftermarket fiberglass top replaces the stock top and adds to the overall look. This visually ties the long SUV together in some ways. Patented tandem axles are used to convert 6×6 into 6×6. The Patagonia offroad tires are 37 inches tall and hug the Apocalypse 20 inch SJF alloy rims. This gives the vehicle a four-inch lift. Auto mode allows the Dark Horse to be set up in the full-time six-wheel drive. The front four tires are always engaged. However, the ECU decides when to engage them.
Apocalypse Manufacturing plans to make more Dark Horses for both customers and spec. The first one is currently powered by the 2.7 EcoBoost V6. The engine has been modified by adding larger injectors and a more efficient exhaust system. ECU calibrations have also been made. This allows for 400 horsepower. The plan is to also make 6×6 Broncos with Coyote V8 supercharged engines that produce 700 horsepower. A Kevlar paint job has been discussed. This coating looks like a spray-on bedliner but has 4,700 tensile strengths. The Kevlar has been applied to the front bumper of custom-stain steel.
2023 Ford Bronco 6×6 Dark Horse Release Date & Price
The interior of “King Ranch”, which is a new tan and dark marine-grade leather, covers many surfaces. This makes it water-resistant and an added benefit. It is expected that the interior will be upgraded at a retail cost of around $200,000.
The Dark Horse is available in the Hellfire, Doomsday, and Sinister 6 Jeep 6×6 versions, as well the Warlord Ram TRX. Prices range from $150,000 up to $250,000. Ford Bronco Dark Horse pricing has not been revealed. Apocalypse will sell the Dark Horse at auction in April 2022 by Barrett Jackson. There is no reserve. It should be the first, so it will have to have panache. This could also mean a high price. As we mentioned, Apocalypse is going to build more.
