Just posting this for anyone else like me on the fence about Cyber Orange.

When I saw the orange in the reveal video, I fell IN LOVE with the color they showed.

I finally tracked down a Ranger in CO to see in Broomfield, Colorado over at Sill-TerHar Morors (it’s on the Ford show floor if you live in the area)

Initial impression- it’s absolutely yellow. If I saw the color on the street, there’s a 0% chance I would have called it orange. In certain light, it does have a slightly orange twinge to the yellow. It reminds me of Tonka truck paint (not in a bad way, loved Tonka trucks)

The pics I took look more orange than my eye was picking up in person in the showroom. The sun was shining in the passenger side, and it did bring a little more of the golden out to the naked eye.

Having said all of that that, I don’t dislike yellow. It’s just not anything like the marketing material photos or reveal video. It’s a cool color. It’s got cool metal flake that shows a ton on the sharp curves, and has a lot of depth. I may still get CO, but 100% will have the car called yellow any time someone needs to describe it 🙂

THe more I see the CO the more I dislike it. Doesn't look to pleasing on the Ranger either. If the Bronco came in Sabre like the Ranger it would look so much better than the CO IMO.

Is the metal flake as prominent as it looks in the pictures?

Those pics do look pretty yellow. I’ve tracked down a local dealer that has a CO Ranger in transit. I’ll be monitoring to see if I can look at it. I’m still pretty set but if I can lay eyes on it to confirm that would be best.

Yeah I really would. Again, cool color if you’re ok with yellow. If you have your heart set on a color people would describe as orange- this isn’t it.

I like CO well enough but I don't love it, certainly not enough to pay extra. At least it's one less gray.

My thought is that it REALLY bothers me that the taillight curve doesn’t match the body curve. 🥴
Too big for the truck too.

Ford’s prices for colors are pretty reasonable. Granted you can get a lot of colors at no additional charge, but $595 isn’t bad at all IMO.

No, not bad at all. If it was THE color for me I'd pay up.
