Grabber Blue is the only blue that matters.

I went and looked at the VB in person and to me it looked cheap. It’s the color you see on low end F150s and focuses with manual windows. I wanted to like it, but in person it looked so bad I scratched it off my list. The CG pics in the B&P make it look a lot better than it does in person.
Yes! That’s the word: Cheap-looking. I much prefer the Lightning Blue.
And who wouldn’t give their left one to see the return of Kona Blue?

The AMB is so damn good looking. That being said, I currently have a BMW 5 series with what they call Carbon Black Metallic. It looks essentially the same and I really enjoy the color. Sure it shows dirt really easy, but I have zero problem keeping it clean. The problem that I have is that it shows swirls really bad. It's for this reason that I will be going with a lighter color with my Bronco. 2Dr Badlands w/SAS in Iconic Silver. That's my choice.....for today anyway! :cool:

That looks so much better than the white. Sorry to the nostalgia people but I haven't seen a white one look good yet. It belongs on classics just like chrome; not modern.

Nice color. I had the same color on my 335 and truly loved it. I had already learned the hard way with my previous car being black. Thus even before I took delivery of the 335 I switched over to synthetic products (like Zanio) and invested in a good orbital buffer (actually bought a porter cable but that is overkill). I kept the car for 8 years and it never developed swirls. It also paid off for when I went to sell it as it only took a couple of days and I got top dollar for the car. You have to put the stuff down every few months and then wash it with their same product but man did I keep the swirls away (along with better car washing practices).

I actually don't use Zaino anymore. Instead I switched over to the professionally installed CQuartz (ceramic nano properties). Yes it's expensive but I have a 5 year old M4 that I haven't had to wax once. So for me it was worth my time. The new BMW is cyber orange (basically a metallic reddish orange) so I wasn't as concerned with swirls. Not sure how much better cQuartz is over using Zaino every few months for black paint. Anyway, yes owning a black car and keeping it nice is definitely a bit more work but I would do it again for the right car.

Some serious "Hue" adjustments were made to this pic. You can tell by how pinkish the background is. Plus is also underexposed, perhaps also deliberately. I wouldn't trust these as true colors. Anyone can do these slight adjustments with their phones these days. What happened to the good ole days when you actually had to use a computer with photo editing software to do this.

I bet the people who like AMB don't live on a limerock road.
Right?! I'm about a quarter mile from the limestone gravel road and have wheat and corn fields in my back fields. My dark vehicles get dirty just sitting in the driveway in the summer when it's dry dusty. AMB would lose it's luster real quick.

I am debating between AMB and A51 on my Badlands. It all depends on how the MIC top looks on the color, and in most photos the MIC top looks better with A51.

I’m gonna have to raise my hand on this one. Hopefully, you can recognize it from the back. ?‍♂

That's what I keep thinking every time I see a picture of VB on a Mustang or F150.

I'm going to stop by my local Dealer today, since they FINALLY got new vehicles in, and check out Antimatter Blue, Carbonized Gray, Rapid Red and Velocity Blue.

It's mostly cloudy at the moment, so I'll get a good visual on how they look out of direct sunlight.

I'm not the biggest fan of Antimatter Blue, mostly because it reminds me of my current vehicles color, Plasma Blue Pearl, and that it's dark and will show scratches really easy.

It gets really dusty here and walking out to see it like that would annoy me as bad as my current vehicle. The only upside to the dust is I can tell when someone has been prowling it, because of the cupped hand marks on the windows or hand marks on fenders or quarter panels.

Colors are very pretty all the blues are!

I really wish the bronco had the intergraded fenders like the sport and the f150. Something about it just looks good!

Also isn't the sport an Auto/Stick. My Merc is. Wonder why they didn't put that in the big bronco. Would that have gave everyone what they wanted?

Dealer has a F250 in in Antimatter. Unfortunately it's a lousy rainy day here but I'll try to link up some pics I did take.

The AMB has the silver bottom , the other 250 is Agate Black.

Also included:

Blue Jeans F150
Velocity Blue F150
Lightning Blue Ranger

like others AMB is back in the picture after seeing these.. I’m down to VB and AMB. I have seen VB in person and it really is an amazing color. Would love to see AMB at a dealer in person before choosing my final color

I think blue jeans is what people really want from AMB. #truthhurts
I've always been a huuuge fan of Blue Jeans.

If it weren't for the Bronco, an F150 or Super Duty in Blue Jeans would be my next purchase. I'm not into chrome, and that color works reeeally well with it. Classic truck vibes maybe?

AMB works better on the Bronco than the 2021 trucks in my opinion, idk how I feel about it replacing Blue Jeans on them. It's unique and I think will work nicely with all the black and gray trim accents
