Saleen's take on the 2021 Ford Bronco will pay homage to the Baja 1000, include unique equipment
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.
