I must say that the standard hardtop looks great for colors like Area 51 and Cactus Grey, but the coloration and the name of the color is lacking a proper description.
If I pick a carbonized gray Bronco, I'd 'assume' that the carbonized gray hardtop would match. Be careful on this assumption. carbonized gray are two different colors...

I'll stick with cactus gray for now, but I do want to see all the colors - and hard tops - in person ASAP.

I think a gray hardtop would clash with every color considering the doorhandles, flares, bumpers etc will be black.

In my opinion, there isn't a single color Bronco that wouldn't look better with a black hardtop over a gray one.

I don't get the gray thing at all, and if that's all that's offered, Im just gonna save money and stick with a black soft top. I want black textured or white textured. Not gray, not painted body color.

EDIT: I want black, textured, matte or flat BLACK. Not painted black. Not glossy black.

I'd agree, but the black is a high gloss shadow black.

I want black molded in color, not painted black.

Yeah I'm not sure the reason with the gray top. In my opinion it doesn't match any other plastic on the bronco. Then it looks like you got a sun bleached top from the factory. I will at a minimum getting the molded black top. It just looks better.

I like the gray hardtop - fine with the color. I wouldn't care for gloss black. Maybe more of a semi/flat black hardtop as on my Jeep would be ok. White looks cool, and while I wouldn't go that route, hoping Ford offers white because I'd like to see those driving around. Kind of a classic style.

One nice thing about the molded in color top vs a painted too. It'll greatly reduced how long it takes to wash and wax it

Not having to worry about water spots on the top is sweet


They really shouldn't use the same name for gloss body paint and a matte molded in plastic color. That's almost certainly going to cause a problem later

Do we know for sure it’s gray and not black?
It’s listed every where as Carbonized Gray. Some pictures do look darker/more black. Most pics and even on the Ford website it’s gray even with black door handles which is weird

The Ford website lists the hard top as Grey but all other components as Black. Here is the demo model they are currently showing to the press, which matches what Ford has on their website.

It seems a little odd but I think it will be fine with all colors. Once a soft top is available for the 2 door I'll probably only use the hard top 3 months out of the year.
