Ford has not released official numbers regarding how many 2021 Bronco and Bronco Sport reservations it has taken since the model debuted just two weeks ago, but there's indications that it's a big number. A source that spoke to Car & Driver relayed that the company has received enough deposits to keep it busy though at least mid-2022.

This news comes as it was confirmed that the first deliveries of the Bronco are still nearly a year away. The company is currently on track to make the first deliveries of the Bronco in June 2021. The Bronco Sport will begin arriving at dealerships later this year.

Ford recently confirmed that it is doubling the number of Bronco Special Editions that it is making.

Following the models' debut on July 13, Ford immediately began taking deposits on the SUVs, in the same fashion as it did for the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E. The $100 reservation fee is automatically refunded if you cancel your order.

We already know how much each trim level of the model will cost and what paint colors the model is offered in. There's also a way to save thousands on what your dealership wants the price of your new Bronco to be, and to avoid any markups, by spending as little as $25.

Ford is also slated to debut its Off-Roadeos in 2021. The four events, which appear to be a rival to Jeep Jamborees, will leverage the built-in brand identity of the SUV to attract attendees for test their skills on what Ford calls "an outdoor adventure playground for all skill levels" with experiences designed "to build confidence and inspired Bronco owners to get out in the wild for years to come."

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.

The Lariat Ranger Splash Snow Edition features a gray paint color with black exterior trim and a unique grille design. Inside, the truck carries ebony leather upholstery with ash gray accent stitching and carbon touches. Ford says it will produces just 750 Splash Snow Edition trucks, with availability starting in spring.

The XLT Ranger Splash Forest Edition (pictured above) comes with Forged Green exterior paint and red grille accents. The interior offers black cloth upholstery with ash gray accent stitching and carbon accents. Just 500 Forest Edition vehicles will be produced, with availability starting in summer.

The third and final truck in the series is the XLT Ranger Splash Sand Edition. It gets Desert Sand exterior paint, dark exterior accents and red grill "nostrils." It also gets black cloth upholstery with ash gray stitching and carbon accents. The Sand Edition will debut in fall with a run of only 500 trucks.
