It’s on the Bronco Sport thread. There are some other really good views as well. But yeah, I thought the blue really pops in this picture!
Gracias!!

For those who are wondering what color Cactus Gray and Area 51 really are: I pulled Ford's color PDF ( https://media.ford.com/content/dam/fordmedia/North America/US/product/2021/bronco/pdf/2021-Bronco-2dr-4dr-Color-Sheet.pdf ) into photoshop to check the colors. Photoshop says Cactus Gray is a very low saturation green. Area 51 looks like a blueish cyan.

With low saturation gray colors like these it can be almost impossible to get a photo that looks like what you see in person (something I'm familiar with thanks to my Heritage Blue FJ). Default processing in digital cameras and cell phones tries to pump up the color but is easily thrown off by lighting (especially artificial lighting). Like some of the Area 51 photos I'm seeing, all the first photos of the Heritage Blue FJs made them look baby blue, probably the processing thinking that's probably sky and needs to be a lighter bluer color. We'll really have to see these in person before we know.
At the very least I would love to have somebody describe the color that they are saying in person on a Bronco, not a bronco sport, not on a sheet.

Anyone notice the new Yeti color looks Cactus Gray? I’m gonna look so cool at the mall with this hanging on the back of my new CG Bronco

Ha! I hadn't thought of that, and I actually own this cooler! Guess that makes up my mind on my bronco colour!

If Area 51 looks anything like this bad boy, I'm all in.

I would be up for Area 51, if similar to Arles Blue used on older Land Rovers. Have seen that color in person and liked it.

Cactus Gray is definitely more green than gray (even you called it Cactus Green :LOL:). It varies based on lighting but sometimes it is a scary green. That is why is tough to pick a color at this point without being able to see in person. Ending up with a vehicle with a color I regret because I based it off online pics would not be good.
I call it sage. I look at my sage bush.... It's pretty close.

We know there is a Sasquatch package but didn't know there was a Yeti package. Does that just add the Cold Weather to the Sasquatch?
