Yes. But I'm fairly certain it will never (in any light) look like this:

True. I saw it in bright sun and you can definitely see the mint in it, and on a cloudy day and looked more gray. At no point did it have this bluish look. Although the white accents really throw it off.

I saw a 4Runner in Lunar Gray for the first time today. If I had been assigned to come up with the name for that color, I probably would have named it...Cactus Gray?

I went to a local Ford dealer to do some color shopping today and now I have no idea what color I want. I currently have A51 on order, but the sport they had did not look good. The AMB mustangs and trucks were ok but not as good as the pics I've seen recently. The fighter jet gray Mach 1 Mustang looked great.

The A51 looked a little turquoise. :sick: I'm hoping that it was because of the yellow pollen and overcast skies.

Cyber yellow is pretty damn yellow in person haha.
It’s what I’ve ordered :)

I just came back from local dealership and the Anti matter blue is really black! I was really disappointed and will now look hard at the rapid red metallic. By the way,they had a new sport that was suppose to be cactus gray and it’s a light gray, no blue/ green in it at all. People really need to go see these colors in person . They are not what is advertised on the internet.

its a polarizing color. It’s pretty awesome, but I promise anyone not knowing the paint name is cyber orange will call it yellow.

a bad ass, deep, metallic yellow with gold, bronze, orange pearl tones. It’s not flat looking at all in the sunlight.

even the pics I took- the camera picks up more orange than my naked eye did.
This will absolutely be a fun color for photographers.

I’ve seen enough Iconic Silver Fords to know that I’ll be happy with it. Easy color.

First, I have no dog in the Cactus Gray fight.

Second, I know: Pictures or it didn't happen, but:

I went in search of A51 today near sunset and found a CG Ranger and Bronco Sport. I thought they had a definite minty green/gray appearance. My wife however just saw gray. Very interesting color, but I don't want it on my Bronco.

Also, the Ranger had Bridgestone Dueler AT's in 255/65x17. The tread actually looked acceptable, this should be a 31" tire. My 255/75x17 (32's) Duelers on my BB will get me by for a while. :)

I managed to find a Ranger locally in Cactus Gray and it actually was more green than I expected (a good thing - I'm sick of gray/charcoal/white/black automobiles).

But it's one of those colors you aren't really sure what it is. Does it look green right now because I want it to look green, but after I buy it and every day after I realize it's just a mundane primer gray? Is the dress white or blue, and which color do you want it to be?
I looked at another local one today, in different light again . The third different light I've seen it in... (Rain, sunny and today bright but overcast) and I've liked it a bit more each time. I was thinking about changing to white.... But I'm staying put on. CG.... It does have a bit of green in it that normally I wouldn't like. Not a fan of green. But your right, this is different from the standard grey. And. I'm digging it. 🤘

I am going out on a limb to say most people will be very, very happy. The Bronco will look amazing, people will be thrilled with their choice. These people who don't want their Bronco, don't have to buy it.

Stopped by a dealer today to check for myself since I have a CG on order. Here is a pic of three Bronco Sports in sunlight, silver, cactus gray, and area 51. In sun area 51 looks very blue, in shade it looks more unique to me. Long story short personally I'm sticking with cactus gray. Was hoping it would look closer to my nardo gray Audi but it's way lighter.

I almost did before I saw pics of the A51 and the CG. Did not like how blue the A51 was and the CG was too pale for my liking. Ended up picking OW and then putting decals/wraps later

Same thing happened to me a few months back. I got off the A51 train real quick after that. Can’t handle the turquoise

I love that gray on the Audi

I call it "BABYSHIT YELLOW" and I Love it. Thank my father for it's name. Very similar to the color on my F-100 in high school that had no metallic.
