The color does have some green, hence the name. The trickiest thing about this color is its variance based on lighting conditions. At times it is more gray and others the green hue is more pronounced. Basically it is a paint chameleon. Hopefully as we get closer to the Build and Price going live, we will see more photos of all the paint colors.I don't want to beat a dead horse here, but I just want to clear up the air on a question regarding Cactus Grey. Initially, it seems everyone had so many questions surrounding that iconic sea foamish green hue in the color. However, I've now seen it circling around that the greenish hue was just a preproduction version of the color and is in reality just fighter jet grey (the flat grey we see on the mustang, which contains no green tint at all).
I can't seem to get confirmation on which direction the color is in reality because I called my dealer this morning to ask and he said "it's a unique color to the bronco and a greenish hue'" as originally suspected.
Again, I just want a straight answer on whether this color is that green hue that's been floating around since the beginning or just the flat grey we see on the mustang?
I can't be the only one noticing conflicting information concerning the color and I'm having a hard time trusting pictures for obvious reasons.
Any takes on this?
Edit: didn't see the massive thread with this debate already circling before posting haha. Nice to see I'm in good company.
Sorry, I got distracted with that little sticker that has to be pulled off!Anyone that wants to see the cactus gray in real life can see a bronco Sport near the grove city outlets. Saw this beside the timber creek restaurant just up the road from the outlets. F-150 is having a dealer event this week at the outlets and it is probably a trainer driving it. I asked and no one was sure if any broncos would be there.
Therer are other threads relative to color and color samples, which may help you out. I think the vehicles on this thread are far more indicative of the CG color because they are on the vehicles and in open air. If the color was only gray with no green hue, they would not have named it Cactus Gray. But to help you get a better understanding of the color and its variance, I recommend you look at the following on this thread. August 13th: there is the intro of the mustang mach 1 and the fighter gray is slightly-ever so slightly green. Check out the front of it when the ford reps are talking about it. The grille is black and the splitter is dark gray and clearly the car is not a pure gray. There are additional mach 1 replies from August 17th and 27th worthy of your attention, the 27th being on the Nurburing. These are fighter gray but the slight green hue is apparent on the video. Go through various replies from September 1, 2, 16, and 17. These show primarily the bronco sport in various lighting and angles. Again what these photos reveal is a paint color that is wholly dependent on specific conditions to look either gray or feint green. I think if you live in the PNW it will appear gray frequently and if you live in Arizona, Texas or Cali, the sun will pick up the green.Do we know that for sure? Since it is the same as fighter jet gray now according to Ford promo materials...and a fighter jet has no green hue, can we tell by the name or the early pics?
At this point, nobody external from Ford has seen a production vehicle in the color. That includes Bronco, Sport, Ranger or Mustang.Is it possible that Cactus Gray is a different color on the Sport vs the regular Bronco? Looking at the 360 Colorizer, the regular Bronco definitely has a green hue. The Sport's 360 Colorizer looks straight gray. I know it's all rendered images but it would explain the discrepancies seen so far.
I wonder if that indicates they still haven't finalized the color?At this point, nobody external from Ford has seen a production vehicle in the color. That includes Bronco, Sport, Ranger or Mustang.
One-off hand-painted showcase models and pre-production test rigs yes. But as far as an actual production-assembly-line vehicle in Cactus Gray, no.
Ford also hasn't released the production color code and composition of the Cactus Gray paint. (2021 Bronco paint codes).
A real green would be my first choice. Some of the green we see in the pics looks pastel to me and makes me lament not having a real green. Unsure at this point what it will look like. You have seen the threads with this pic right?Me liking Cactus Gray is 100% dependent on it having green hues as suggested in all of the initial reveal photos from Ford.
If it turns out to be just gray, I'm out.
