Deliveries for the six-wheeled Bronco start in 2022.
The new Ford Bronco has already demonstrated its off-road prowess after it recently climbed the challenging Hell's Gate trail on stock suspension. Ford is now offering hundreds of accessories that enhance its capability, but if these modifications are still too tame for you, Maxlider Brothers Customs will build you a more extreme version of the new Bronco with an extra set of wheels. Previewed in render designs shared on the tuner's Instagram page, the Ford Bronco 6X6 will be available in 2022. Maxlider Brothers Customs is already taking reservations for the beast, which will set you back a staggering $399,000.
Since the Mercedes-AMG G63 6x6 was unleashed, we've seen aftermarket tuners convert other existing off-roaders like the Jeep Gladiator and Toyota Land Cruiser into six-wheeled monsters, so it was probably only a matter of time before the Ford Bronco was given the same treatment.
Maxlider Brothers Customs hasn't provided many details about the project, but the render designs give us an idea of what to expect. The SUV has been stretched to accommodate an additional rear axle to help it tackle the toughest terrain. All six wheels are wrapped in massive BFGoodrich all-terrain tires and a spare is also mounted on the back.
Other modifications include flared fenders, a raised suspension that improves the Bronco's ground clearance, and a roof rack incorporating a set of lights for night-time off-road adventures. The sinister-looking SUV is also finished in black with a grey full-length stripe running across the side, replicating the look of the retro-inspired Ford Bronco Nite Edition built by the same company.
It isn't clear yet if Maxlider Brothers Customs plans to make any modifications under the hood. In stock form, the Ford Bronco is powered by a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder rated at 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque, but we won't be surprised if the six-wheeled Bronco gains some extra muscle to help it cope with the modifications.
So far, the Bronco 6X6 has only been shown in mockup renders so the final design may look slightly different. Maxlider Brothers Customs hasn't said how many Bronco 6X6s it intends to build, but we can't wait to see it in action when production gets underway.
