I was gung ho about AMB until I saw it today on the gas can in Townsend. It's dark AF! Under overcast skies it wasn't far off the black. Hmmm, this is a tough one. Maybe the green one being unveiled tomorrow will be enticing 😲
I just saw it there as well. Video below.

So i might be alone with being a fan of antimatter but being disappointed with how it turned out. Wanted to gauge the community reaction to it with a poll.


When the CGI renders came out for antimatter i fell in love. I liked how it was a dark deep blue. However with the reveal of the gas can and later other samples it turns out its VERY dark. Essentially black with blue sparkles. Now we have yet to see it in the sun on a car in various lighting conditions. All we have is this new shot.

What happened with the CG samples?

^CG vs real life under flourescent lighting

^ early CG render when the website launched (Best version of this color in my opinion)



Now its very close to game time with ford. Any changes in colors will likely have to happens soon if ever.

Would you want ford to try to match the CG samples? or keep it how it is?

again this thread could be a waste of time. We could all be blown away if they put the new pre produciton in the sun. Who knows. But we should start this discussion now before it might be too late
AMB is likely pretty challenging to recreate in CG. Especially such a dynamic colour. Most of the CG colours aren't an accurate representation.

The chances of a colour change now are very, very low. As in non-existent. Especially since AMB is currently going on production vehicles on the F150.

There's a good change you'll be able to see an AMB F150 in person at a dealer near you by December. Keep an eye out and search the sales sites for one.

Looks great. Keep in mind there’s a ton of orange peel on the can and will look better on the car
I want to like it. I really do like it.
but personal opinion is the it, Velocity, COrange would look great on a 2 door.
I think the 4 door, with so much side surface area, it wouldn’t look as good.
A51 was not even on my radar before today.
saw the BL overlander today and made my mind up for sure that A51 IS the color. Unimpressed by photos on here. In real life it blows your socks off how good it looks

Photoshopped this on a different thread. Nobody really responded and it went overlooked. Maybe it was a shit photoshop. Lol

OBX treatment and white hardtop. Paint is unchanged

And some photos of Velocity Blue for those on the fence about AMB.

I changed my mind about VB, it is very nice and on the right vehicle (read, Bronco/Mustang/F150) it looks very good. I thought it was a lot lighter and maybe a bit weak but after seeing it in person it’s quite nice. I still prefer lightning blue but for those who aren’t getting the FE, Velocity is a great color.

I also saw Ford PerformNce Blue and it’s a dark blue as well, much much lighter than AMB, and I’m just not sure I’d even want something as dark a Ford Performance blue on my Bronco. Sooooo, for me, as awesome as this AMB is I think it’s moving to my 2nd spot.

1) Cyber Orange / Velocity Blue (I dunno which I like better)
2) Antimatter Blue

Looks good, AMB needs the white top! Was hoping this would get more photo angles but just the lone picture of a lower spec 4 door. This is still at the top of my list but would love to see it on a BL 2 door outside with a good walk around video.

I like the contrast between the top and the body. This is gonna work for me.

Looking spot on. Still very upset that the Ford Bronco Brand Manager at super cel (Esteban - who you see in many videos) said no white tops for MY21 (see recent video that was just posted).
