@BEM-S4

That sounds pretty good to me! Hope to hear the same from others the more people put eyes on em. I can't imagine we get a good luck out here in the north east but I can hope and pray that I'll be able to see in person
Thanks! Not sure how I missed that post. I think I am down to AMB or Carbon. I had been flirting w/ Cactus for a while, and silver is the safe but most boring choice. Those were the four I was considering at least.

I suppose since I am waiting for 2022 there's a good chance I can see some things in person before making a final call.

So, I got lucky at the Preview Event that I attended today. I finally was able to see a 4-Door Antimatter Blue Bronco in the flesh. ( I have reserved a 4-Door, AMB Outer Banks....and this one was a Black Diamond w/ Sasquatch. Really makes me want to spend the extra $$$ for the Squatch. )
I have been torn between Antimatter Blue and Area 51 for a long time. I have seen an A51 Bronco 2 door up close, but had never seen one in AMB.

I am sure of my decision now....it will definitely be Antimatter Blue.

I am adding pics and video....but they don't do the color justice. (And I apologize for the choppiness of the videos. )

The Bronco was in the shade under a tent, and when I did get it out in the open, it was approaching twilight. I will tell you that seeing Antimatter Blue on the Bronco in person is completely different than seeing it here. One thing I noted was just how much of the body-side turned blue in the light. It looked fantastic. I was rather disappointed seeing the video and pics on my phone, because it didn't capture nearly as much blue as I saw in person. If you get a chance to see one before making your color choice, I highly recommend it. My wife was 100% in the Area51 camp, but can definitely get behind AMB now that she has seen it up close. As a matter of fact, she informed me that I will be driving a very nice, red 2017 Jeep Cherokee once my Antimatter Blue Bronco arrives. LMBO

VIDEOS:











I was AMB from the beginning, but then saw an F150 in AMB on an overcast day and thought it was too dark. I switched to A51. Your pictures and videos are making me rethink the switch. Did you like it that much better than A51?

Wait, I'm so confused. This one looks like what I originally loved, an actual blue. But they substituted "Anti-Matter Black" for a while. Now I have to run out to a local dealer to see the F150 they have in AMB again.
I went to the dealership yesterday and saw AMB on a 2021 Expedition and F150. It is definitely black even in direct sunlight. Only slight glimmers of blue here and there. I think the cameras are picking up more blue light because this is not what the color looked like in-person.

Does every bronco (regardless of trim and options package selected) come with that little storage cubby in the center console just behind the gear shift and cup holders?.....Assuming each one does Ford keeps showing pre-production features to the public that you cannot order on production models

Thanks for posting the pics and videos. As I've suspected all along, AMB is going to be a great color. Now, where are all the two-door BD's without squatch?

AMB OBX SAS all the way!

Looks great. Pairs better than I had imagined with the MIC flares. Actually, as much as I was obsessing over going OBX for painted handles and mirrors to go with AMB, the unpainted handles are actually barely noticeably in the videos.

I’ve see what you’re describing, although maybe not in direct sunlight. If the vehicle is dirty it dramatically effects the blue color as well. When I wiped off a spot on the fender of an F150 AMB expedition I saw what he saw. But he literally stated in his comments that the camera and video didn’t pick up as much of the blue as it did in person.

This ^ AMB cleaned up in the sun you can really see the blue. Even overcast when it's clean you can see the blue. When it's dirty though almost all bets are off

Nice pics. No wonder why Sasquatch could possibly be in short demand. Ford put it on every f**king bronco they show off.
This. It’s almost like Ford is afraid to show off their standard trims. The Black Diamond trim is supposed to be “Next Level Off-Roading,” yet they’ve never demonstrated that capability without Sasquatch. I don’t plan on doing any heavy duty rock crawling, but I’d like to see some videos of the standard trims on the trails.

@Thunderpriest you certainly did get lucky! This post and these pics absolutely made my day.

Not only did you take all the right pics, the color of the AMB in these pics is exactly what I was hoping it would be. Like you I was torn between A51 and AMB. At the last second before finalizing my order I switched to AMB and have been a little nervous about it since. The F-150's I saw in AMB were definitely more black than blue.

But... you said the pics don't accurately represent what you see in person. Is it more blue or black in person then these pics let on? Thanks!
