I am reluctantly considering the silver. I say reluctantly because I see silver vehicles EVERYWHERE! My wife's Honda is silver and it is attractive and it handles heat and dirt very well.
Here are my Pros/Cons for Silver
Pros:
It contrasts well with the other items on the vehicle like trail sights, fender flares, roof, etc.
It will look ok if not washed recently.
It doesn't retain as much heat from the sun as darker colors do (My black Volvo is a furnace).
Cons:
So many vehicles are Silver.
It is not special or eye catching.
Just my thoughts!

+1 on black Volvo furnace. My black S90 lives outside in Florida and even with dark tint is a sauna. The Scandinavians do love a good sauna.

Silver is a great color especially if you don't get to actually see the colors!

As ` said.... silver and white is everywhere... so its more safe, especially for resale.

Personally I think it adds a really solid and neutral base to draw out your accents.

Might be my final choice since they F'ed up Area 51 :)

i've never had a silver car before but i'm sold on iconic silver for the bronco. Silver has always been a "classic" yet classy colour in my books, and now that i'm 40 I think it's time =)

Metalic Silver is one of the best colors to hide dirt .... when clean and shiny its amazing and when its dirty its much less noticeable than other colors .... it also hides paint chips really well.
But you need those black accents ......

I am looking at iconic silver for this reason. Living in the West Texas Desert we always have sand blowing and in the instance you get a brush trail scratch it hides well.
