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.
My phone didn't register as much blue as I saw in person.
I also thought there was more black than blue on a few F-150s in AMB that I had seen previously. I think the vehicle itself plays a big part in how the color looks due to the different body panels and angles.

@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!
I saw more blue in person than the pictures captured.

the antimatter on the bronco IS different than the F150. the bronco has like a different base that is more blue.

I totally agree with you! They really appear as two different colors. I have looked at the F150 AMB multiple times and the pictures from the demo here look very different. The F150 looked like Antimatter Black; these look like the Antimatter Blue in the Build and Price. I am going with AMB regardless and hope my dealership has the AMB tomorrow when I go do my Bronco preview!

The two F-150 pics are a great illustration that it’s likely all about the angle and intensity of the sunlight. (Note their shadows.)

Also not inconsistent with the various angles and jokes here:AMB - Is it blue or black?

Seeing this one has moved me off carbonized grey and full dune jumping speed into antimatter blue!

And this Black Diamond can get door bags but I couldn’t when I ordered mine. So frustrating!

I’m glad to see the Ford Flex in a rag top now. Wonder if it still comes with the fridge in the back.

I’ll add a few pics (AMB looked really nice in the sun). Also, the MGV was great.

These pictures and videos are ALMOST making me want to change my colour back to AMB... ALMOST. 😂
Me too! I was AMB originally until I saw it person on the F-150s and decided I couldn’t trust it. Final chance will be the Bronco event I’m attending this week. fingers crossed they will have this color. Would a MIC top be to much to ask for?

IF I end up changing my color to AMB, I'll probably make some obx owner very happy. Seriously considering body color flares for my BL. I'm thinking the flares might be where the AMB has the biggest "pop"
I was thinking of something like amour all. Or something to add a little sheen to the flares without going full body color. I wonder how that would look
