Just left dealer, had to do the 2023 re-order for my Raptor. Was originally Cyber Orange, no longer available. Was gonna go Eruption Green, no longer available. So now not sure, went iconic silver to be safe int he interim but is certainly not what I wanted.

Anyone seen any ford anything in that Azure Grey?

Honestly the Raptor looks sick in Iconic Silver and Oxford White, especially with those graphics. I think they actually make the flares look like it's part of the design, rather than a oh-shit-design-something-for-regulatory-compliance afterthought.

It's just a very safe color. Would have preferred something a bit more "fun", I totally agree though that the flares and top blend much better with that color scheme. May save me the cost of painting the flares.

Word of caution…
That’s what I did for my ‘22 because the dealer had nothing to show me of the actual paint colors. (Went with CG because it seemed “safe”) Changed to VB when I got to see actual paint on actual Broncos a couple weeks later. Tracked as VB for months right up to the moment it went into production, then Ford inexplicably changed it back to CG and refused to do anything about it. Now my Bronco has been built and is being shipped but in a color I dislike. The only solution they offered was to not buy it and put in an order for a ‘23 and loose price protection from the original order.

Why not Code Orange? Seems the closest to your original choice? I'm in the same boat as you since they killed Velocity Blue. I re-ordered yesterday and went with CO.

It's just so red, which I am not a fan of, but love a good orange. I'm still on the fence and have some time to change it appears but bummed they got rid of the colors that popped the best in my opinion.

It’s really not red at all in person, pictures do make it look red though. It’s straight up orange.

Care to share some pics in various lights? Didn't you recently receive yours? And if so congrats.

I’d agree with others, Code Orange is a lot more orange in person than pictures show. This one from a while back does show the difference with Hot Pepper Red, but I’d say it’s far more orange in person. Maybe a dealer around you has a CO F-150 Raptor?

Go look at Code orange in person. It's not red, its very orange. I could not decide on Code Orange until I saw it in person in the sun.

I picked up my Raptor yesterday and agree with what was stated above. It is definitely orange.

Silver is the least colored picked. F150 Raptor guys never pick Silver either. So your silver Warthog will be rare.

It's just a very safe color. Would have preferred something a bit more "fun", I totally agree though that the flares and top blend much better with that color scheme. May save me the cost of painting the flares.

I like the color but very few people will ever call it orange.
