Ford just unveiled the 2021 Bronco. Saleen was ready. The aftermarket retailer already advertised their own take on the model, scheduled to go on sale once the Bronco becomes available next year.

The fresh exterior of the Bronco two-door takes its inspiration from the Baja 1000, one of the premier desert races in the world. It's a tribute to a two-time winner of the Baja 1000, "Parnelli "Big Oly" Jones, who won back-to-back victories. Saleen's take on the new Bronco will be given the Saleen Big Oly Bronco name in honor of the accomplishment.

Though the company has provided no confirmation of the trim level the model is built on, they have divulged a long list of upgrades they'll make to their version of the Bronco.

Ford's bumper will be deleted and instead a Saleen front bumper is installed and paired with a LED light array and forged carbon skid plate. There also will be a forged carbon grille surround accented in Baja Blue. The composite front fenders are a Saleen Design original and have an integrated forged carbon fender vent.

The Bronco will also will have a Saleen power hood, dual A-pillar mount LED driving light, Roof Mount Pro 8 light bar, and Saleen rocker guard panels. Up top is a body color removable roof that is paired with a Saleen Design modular roof rack while Saleen Design composite fenders and quarter panel are out back. There's an adjustable rear roof spoiler, rear tire carrier, and rear bumper all by Saleen.

Each model comes in the "Big Oly"-inspired livery with Olympia insignia and Baja Blue accent.

Pricing for the model is not available, but it's safe to say that it will cost well above the $29,995 starting price for the model that Ford charges.

During its time off the market in the United States, the Ford Ranger remained a popular utility vehicle in global markets. In other markets, the truck is offered in unique special editions, such as the Ranger Raptor and Ranger Storm, but the options in the U.S. are limited. Last year, Ford announced the return of the Ranger Splash, a funky version of the truck that roamed the streets in the 1990s. Today, the automaker outlined another Splash edition, this time to be produced in limited quantities with special color options.

Ford will offer three colors for the new Ranger Splash Limited Edition: Snow Edition, Forest Edition, and Sand Edition. The colors will roll out one at a time "every few months," according to Ford, and the package will add $1,495 to the Ranger's price tag.
