Dark Horse is another 6×6 from Apocalypse Manufacturing similar to Jeep based Hellfire we reviewed recently.
Dark Horse is based on an off-the-shelf Ford Bronco 4×4 with a turbocharged V6 engine. By remapping the ECU and adding larger fuel injectors and an improved exhaust with a distinct tone, Apocalypse Manufacturing was able to extract 400 horsepower from the base unit.
The Dark Horse features patented custom tandem, handmade, middle-axle channeling power to all six wheels. The stock Bronco’s convertible roof is replaced with a custom-made extended fiberglass hardtop with a slant back that can be readily removed and reinstalled as needed. Coil-over suspension supports each individual wheel, resulting in a firmer and more comfortable driving experience. The “auto” button activates full-time 6×6 mode.
The interior of the Dark Horse is truly unique, especially when the truck’s doors and roof are removed. The marine-grade leather upholstery is finished in a King Ranch style pattern with a tan and black color combination.
