2021 Ford Bronco Goes Retro Thanks To Maxlider

Restomod Bronco pays tribute to the original Bronco Nite Edition

  • Maxlider Brothers Customs specializes in restoring old Broncos back to life

  • New 2021 Ford Bronco Nite Edition available in two and four-door configurations

  • The first Ford Bronco Nite Edition was offered in 1991 and 1992


The new 2021 Ford Bronco is the hottest thing to happen to the automotive industry in quite some time. Already a hot commodity on the restomod scene, the Ford Bronco in its latest form is a tuner’s dream and it shows with the number of modified new-generation Broncos we’ve seen in the last week.

The latest comes from Maxlider Brothers Customs out of Bloomington, Illinois, a shop that has modified its fair share of Broncos. Called the 2021 Ford Bronco Nite Edition, is a modern take on a very exclusive and rare 1990s Ford Bronco edition.

The first Nite Edition Bronco was offered in 1991 and 1992 in very limited quantities. Although Ford may one day offer a new Bronco Nite Edition, Maxlider has been it to the punch with its latest Bronco model.

Although this new take doesn’t keep the multicolor stripe running down the side of the original Nite Edition, it does keep the deep black color along with a Fox suspension, BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A tires, black wheels, a winch, and mounted lights on the roof rack.

There are no plans to modify the engine. The 2021 Ford Bronco is available with either a 2.3-litre EcoBoost that delivers 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, or a 2.7-litre V6 that delivers 310 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.

Maxlider is currently accepting $500 deposits and says it can build the 2021 Ford Bronco Nite Edition in either 2-door or 4-door configurations. It did not say when it would be available, however.
