Cactus Gray has been vexing me- photos show it as greenish, blueish, grayish... it looks somewhere between putty and toothpaste in digital pics.

I had to put eyes on the color. I went to the dealer today and they just received a Bronco Sport in Cactus Gray.

To my surprise, it is definitely greenish-gray in person. Yet, it does not look that way on my iPhone camera- much more gray. But I took these pictures, and they do show a bit of green, I believe. It is a great color.

Depends significantly on lighting and environment. Some days it may look gray, sometimes blue, sometimes green. I see green the most, but a lot depends on your own perception of color as well. Really neat color.

As someone who's stared at CG Ranger and Bronco Sport's for more time than I care to admit, it's just grey.

Parking it under an orange streetlamp at night doesn't make it grey orange, it's still just grey 🪨

I’ve never been in the white HT camp til I decided on cactus grey as my color choice.

To me without sunglasses its flat flat gray. Nothing more. Sunglasses on it has a hint of green. I saw it in the full CA sunshine. Gray out here. But everyone has different perception so going in expecting to see green you may trick yourself into seeing green.

I would say that the more sun there is, the more it washes out the color. In my opinion, your experience makes sense. First time I saw it you had to really search for the green in the gray and it was one of the sunniest days we've had in Michigan in months. A couple of days later I saw one in overcast weather with a ton of snow and it looked super green.

I saw a Sport at the dealer on a overcast day in So. Calif. To me it looked like a creamy light Gray with a couple drops of green added. Then I saw a GC Sport on the road on a semi cloudy day; just light Gray.

My wife had no preconceptions or forcing herself to see green. When we looked at a CG Sport this weekend, her first comment (overcast at the time) “it has a lot of green”. It’s got a lot of “flop” in color, based on lighting.

I know that it looks amazing with white handles/top.
I’ve seen those pics of the cactus gray four door with white handles and white roll cage. What package is that? Or is it a trim to a package?
