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.
That was my reaction, even on the CGI B&P, of VB. I like the AMB color (it's practically the same color of my last 2 SUV's, and is a "formal" color for pulling up to a meeting, etc.), but the lack of contrast to the flares, mirrors, "trail sites," and MIC top make the Bronco look a little weird IMO. The light colors really make the whole thing (assuming grey plastic trim) pop (I think CG looks the best, despite me not being able to pull it off myself). I could see where someone with OBX and body-painted Modular top (or white top) would look good in AMB. For me, I'm thinking A51 (badlands) or Oxford white.

PS Thanks OP for the great pictures. Despite the above contrast factor, I'm still tempted by the AMB-- would fit in the best in an office parking lot. (...and if I need to roll over a miata that's in my space)

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
Can you imagine some rims with a milled aluminum finish with Antimatter Blue or Blue Jeans ?!?!???❤
(Which is my first experience with a very similar color, Black Sapphire on an 88 Corvette, was STUNNING!)

Which would work well with VB also.

Just a quick example of milled NOT POLISHED aluminum:

Lightning blue is by far the best looking blue IMO. It’s a shame it’s only available on FE. One of the reasons I’m waiting until next years model and hoping they give the option for Lighting Blue on all models. ?

in real life, by my eye, the Lightning is ever so slightly darker than VB, but not by a whole lot. The VB always seems to photographer "lighter" ... it still has a richness to it.
Both colors "shift" around the curves very nicely.

That AMB is D.A.R.K dark ... I can the see love/hate....I love it!
I agree - saw a '21 Super Duty in VB with black accents yesterday, and it looked fantastic in person. Black accents definitely pair perfectly with the color.

Well that blows everyone's theory that AMB won't pop on an overcast day. It's really a good look pairing against the silver and should actually play against the MIC top really well.
I would not call that popping in any way lol. In fact, if it weren't for the black truck behind it, it'd probably still be difficult to tell it was AMB, and we'd be debating whether it was a sky reflection or not lol.

Gonna keep saying it. Velocity Blue on a Black Diamond is gonna be an incredible combo. Black and blue go so well together. The grille, wheels, door handles, even the gray top is gonna look so nice. And a blue, gray, and black interior. It’s perfect.
100% agree. Same with Wildtrak - the black accents are going to help "frame" it and tone it down in a way.

They won't. LB is gone from the color lineup across the entire lineup aside from FE and the carryover EcoSport for 2021.

Gotta agree; the silver contrast really brings the color out. Like the AMB look.

Anyone tweet to Ford or get a hold of them and ask why they haven’t created a VB and LB bronco yet? I am trending towards VB on my Badlands but man it would really help out to see this thing in person or at lest photos. They should have created a bronco in every color and done hi def photos indoors and out doors before we have to submit orders. The renderings on B&P are absolute garbage.

I rather have the LB over the VB with a Black MIC instead of the Gray. The VB does look too light and cheap.

Now, the MIC Gray has some definite potential with the AMB and that is my top choice. Would rather have a White MIC but the gray does work well.

My quest to see the colors I was looking for failed some what miserably.

My local dealer is kind of a joke, at this point. Their new vehicle 'stock' online is either extremely incorrect or they're listing vehicles that aren't even there yet, sold or sitting inside in their service shop.

The vehicles I took note of which had what color were mostly no where to be found. In fact, I only saw 3 of the 15 I wrote down.

I saw the Rapid Red F-150, and 2 Carbonized Gray Explorers. The Velocity blue F-150 and Escape were no where to be found. The Antimatter Blue F-150 and F-250 were mia. They had what looked like a Kodiak Brown Bronco sport in the show room. (it was kind of dark in there without lights on and I was looking thru the window.)

I really wanted to see Velocity Blue and Antimatter Blue in person on a partly sunny/overcast day.
The Rapid Red and Carbonized Gray were pretty much what I expected, with RR being my favorite of the two.

The biggest kick to the shins was I counted 18 white new vehicles on their lot, with the majority of the others being a silver or gray.

Added new non-rain/overcast pics to post 1.

Today, the truck just looked black ... no "popping" going on.

Currently, but it too is switching to VB for '21 I believe (which would make sense, given it's sharing the factory with Bronco).

I really think FEs got the late LB add because they have just enough left over to do X amount of FEs in it, but not enough to make it an across the board option without making more.

The same paint robots will paint both the Ranger and Bronco. I believe these robots are limited to about 11 colors because of space constraints within the robot arm. Look at your arm, this is very similar to a paint robot, with your connected fingertips being the spray nozzle. Now as you twist and turn your individual joints imagine them with 11 or so individual paint supply lines inside, as the paint is pumped from the paint supply kitchen individually all the way to your fingertips. Care is made that with extreme articulation that the paint supply lines don't get pinched stopping the flow of paint. Limited space in the robot arms is why there is limited color choices
