I need to stop looking at pictures of the sport, the area 51 just doesn’t look as good as it does on a Sasquatched Bronco

My store hasn't received ours yet - we have 2 mannequins coming (both oxford white ?) and a carbonized gray and iconic silver.
Dang, I would have put a crisp $5 note on a wager that your dealership would only order refrigerator white, carbonized gray, iconic silver and....... black.

You would have TOTALLY won by not having black...... And this, kids, is why the Dealership is the customer, and every customer gets grayscale vehicles here in 2020....

My love for Area 51 has been fading. Seems kinda mediocre now. Probably will end up jazzing things up with Cyber Orange.
Yeah originally I was really excited about Cactus Gray and A51. Now neither of them look good to me and I'm going to just go Iconic Silver with all black trim. Most likely getting a base anyway, so made the choice easier.

In that Florida sun, Cyber Orange is going to look AWESOME for you! Well worth the minor up-charge in paint. A51 will just be a mostly flat (with surface gloss, but absolutely zero visual depth to the color) blay (combination of Blue and Gray) in all situations.

I was stunned at how cars stay clean in FL even with the intense afternoon rain storms you get. But I suppose that as 99% of your ground is sandy that it doesn't really stick to the cars. Here in western WA all ground is a very fine dirty brown so when it rains it kicks up the silt which sticks to your car. 2 light rains is all it takes to turn your car a different color.

Not a bad little crossover for $32K that you can take out on a trail and get to a good campsite. Hope the Bronco Sport does well.

Think a young person just starting out in their career but want an adventure vehicle would love to grab one of these and outfit it to a nice spec.
Agree. Except the pricing for Sports really makes me laugh at all the angry comments on these forums about how the big Bronco is somehow not doing enough or offering enough as a massively expensive $40K rig.... When these days a $40K car is simply middle of middle class price point. (i'm not a wealthy man and a $40K car will be the most expensive car i've ever owned, but it's not an "expensive" car by any stretch. It's basically not even a price point for a Lexus or Acura and those aren't really luxury cars)

The only reason they're clean is because of those afternoon storms. :ROFLMAO:

Half the vehicles out here are sun baked with faded paint and most of those are dirty as hell. I can walk down a parking lot and count on one hand how many people actually take care of their cars. Doesn't help that people buy too small a home and shove all of the extra stuff in the garage and let their new vehicles sit out on the sun. Neighbor has a new mustang ecoboost, new Ram, and a few year old ram. All 3 sit out in the sun when they're home.

Think there are a lot of guys on here who just haven't purchased a new car or not in a long time until deciding on the Bronco. $40K has somehow become nothing to pay for a vehicle. I find that sort of amazing to say, but that's where we are with inflation.

The big Bronco even at $55K for what you can load one up with is a steal. It is very common for you to go out and buy a Rubicon and have a dealer installed kit that costs between $8K-$17K in upgrades before leaving the dealership.

For those keeping score, that's around $47K for the Rubicon, then add the ready to roll kit.

The new F-150 will likely be a $50K truck and not be fully loaded.

These days, it's unfortunate, but a vehicle isn't considered expensive until its over $80K. Crazy, I know...

I'd love to do this, but would probably have to give my wife roofies to make it happen. :D

I'm in for a challenge just to get her off Cactus Gray and onto A51. I'm so sick of gray, white and black vehicles.

If it were solely up to me, I'd go Cyber or Race Red.

A51 is kinda soothing though. Like...Milk of Magnesia? ?

It's amazing how many broken ping pong tables and unused exercise bikes get garage protection where the $50k automobiles do not.

I have two silver vehicles now. Never again... Silver is what dealers stock, because while no one really likes it, nobody really dislikes it. Except me, apparently...

While I thought Iconic Silver looked AMAZING on the brand new Mustang at my local dealer, the more I look at the pictures I took, the more I realize that it looks amazing just because it's a brand new Mustang.???

My daughter thinks it's Buckeye from the address number on the building. Can anyone verify that?
