How do I switch colors? Do I call Ford directly, or just my dealer? Has anyone done this yet? I'm not even sure if I can do it yet or if I have to wait for the new colors to show up on the B&P.

I have been all in on a green for a long time and this green is pretty nice (still not sure it works well with the MIC) but I am just not getting very excited with the drip, drip, drip.

Just announce the ‘22 changes. All of them.

Announce any new trims or special editions.

Announce any model changes.

Announce where Ford is at with their previous late availability items like the slide out tailgate.

Even this last announcement they didn’t bother to show one of their two ‘22 “bold new paint colors” on an actual Bronco. That will come…. later.

I feel like I am watching a pitch drop. We are well past the time to try to build excitement with a slow drip of information and swag.

Additionally, I think offering this iconic vehicle in the same color palette that you get with the maverick, ranger and sport just dilutes the uniqueness and cool factor of what the Bronco offers (yes, yes MAP painting manifold and storage constraints would need to be addressed in a Ranger co-lo facility).

I never thought I would reach this point…but I might be starting to have Bronco fatigue. I need an adventure in the ‘79 just to remind myself why I am torturing myself so much for this vehicle.

If the HE is a go for '22...I still think it gets a different color than what has been announced here.
May be wrong, but my understanding wa that HE was pushed to 2023 due to no white MOD top?

like this green, it doesn't look neon and childish or too dark. Good paint quality metallic afaik and maybe a slight pearl probably not. I think it's a decent shade and most ppl will like this without extreme polarizing looks on the road. imo better than forest service green, that green is way to mint/light colored. Forest service has a much better green in 1997 idk who made this federal standard but maybe they want to stick out in forest now days. They did play it safe tho, it could have been lighter but no one will respect a new color at the cost of removing other colors

White top was pushed to ‘23. I don’t believe any announcement was made specifically on the HE for ‘22.

The new green is growing on me. Just saw it in person.

Not sure what Eruption Green means. So henceforth I’ll be referring to it as MSU Spartan Green.

GO GREEN!!

Hopefully I’ll be able to see it in person to make that judgement but as of now it’s still velocity blue

That's it I'm tapping out. I'll revisit Ford Bronco in 4 or 5 years, maybe. I had just about every deadly sin possible but the killer was the painted top for which I was not willing to compromise. I was pushed out to MY23. Like it or not I spent weeks trying to decide on color and had settled in for Rapid Red, and ultimately placed my order and laid down a $1000 dollar deposit. That's it, I'm pulling the plug. I was a day one reservation holder, bit for anyone thinking my departure will move them up in the line, well as I stated I was MY23 given my requirements. Good luck everybody!
So legitimate question - I like you was pushed to a '23 because of the painted top, so I get the frustration, BUT......

if you're in a '23 regardless, why wouldn't you just keep your reservation/order active until you find out '23 MY changes? They might add a color you do like.

nice thanks for these photos! now that we have eyes on the target in sunlight, what were your impressions? was the metallic too much or more like a pearl?

Not sure if this is the same as the infamous gas can they showed a while back. But I still have my high-quality render of it if you guys and gals want to compare.
