Could be. It's odd though, here we are 44 years later, and apparently the paint color capability in terms of colors offered, is nearly cut in half.Just taking a guess here, but I doubt things were very automated back then. A real live employee probably did the painting and have more flexibility than what's allowed now.
The way I've been reading things, roofs will be available before the new colors. Perhaps Ford made a mistake by giving a preview of what's to come?Just keep kicking the can down the road...you still cant get your Bronco but here's new colors you may never see...oh and a roof? Nobody lives where it's cold! And there are people actually thanking Mike Levine for Sharing new colors....WTF?
That seems to be the way these days, at least at Ford. I recall a few years ago they cut possible ordering combinations on the Fusion drastically so save money and improve production.Could be.

Rapid Red was one of my top two choices (along with Velocity Blue). And it was available on the base.@Ford Motor Company
Here. We. Go. I've always been a truck girl. Love both the old Blazers and Broncos, and have owned too many trucks to count. After the shitshow that Chevy turned into with their AFM, ugly ass new body styles, and the complete utter embarrassment that is the granny wagon new Blazer... I was so excited to see that Ford got it right with the Bronco.
I reserved my Bronco day 2. I've spent so many hours here on Bronco6G & the B&P that my own truck guy husband has gotten tired of hearing about it, and that's saying something.
Words cannot express how pissed I am that Rapid Red is being dropped. I reserved over a freaking year ago. We've been delayed over and over. I've been very understanding and patient in all this so far. Even as I had to deal with so many dumb ass dealers that caused me to reserve with someone 5 hours away (which is now a blessing). It's embarrassing that a dang girl knows more about your trucks & the Bronco than the people you have selling them, by the way. Even as people who RESERVED in 2021 are getting their Bronco before me. Fine – I’ll just wait to get what I want- 2DR Badlands Squatch 2.7 High in Rapid Red. Not gonna change it.
Then all us 2DR people get screwed again & bumped BY FORD to next year. Fine- I’ll keep holding on a little longer to get what I want. Not gonna change it.
So excited to go pick up our new 22 Super Duty yesterday that we specifically ordered in Rapid Red to match my Bronco (that we just ordered in May & still got here before the Bronco). Fine. I can wait a little longer to get what I want. Not gonna change it.
Then I come back to THIS news of no Rapid Red for next year where YOU freaking forced us 2DRs to. I can only take so much Ford. All I want is MY Bronco. And I will NOT be changing to a more door soft top to MAYBE get the freaking color I want this year.
I have never in my life had such a hard time trying to give someone $55K- cash in hand, just ready to be forked over. Now it's like you're ACTIVELY TRYING (and succeeding) to piss people off. I feel like I'm stuck in a bad country song. You're not coming to shoot my dog next, are you?
An old square body Blazer and a new RZR is sure starting to look like a better option to this girl. Please do something to make me hold on! Keep Rapid Red. No one asked for that ugly ass pepper color that no one wanted on their Ranger either. Hell hath no fury Ford....
I think the reason is they can only paint a certain number of colors, 11 seems to be what many think. If they continued into 22 with discontinued colors, those choosing new colors would have their builds pushed back. There's also the fact they have to stop 21's before the calendar year runs out.I really just can't understand this. I have an AMB base reserved. I just don't see why they would take a reservation and not continue to build the colors that are already reserved no matter how long it takes. .
Ford idiots should’ve just skipped MY21 nomenclature and done an 18-month MY22 run like many manufacturers do.I think the reason is they can only paint a certain number of colors, 11 seems to be what many think.
