For me, I started with A51 ... until I saw that it was a powder blue in the light. Then I contemplated Cactus until I saw it was mint in the Light. Toss on all the concerns with grey hard tops vs black door handles... and Silver is a no brainer, unless you really like dark and dusty paint like Carbon Grey.

Sure Silver is safe, but it also is a great base to then accent with minor touches and accessories.

That looks almost perfect, just wish we could get the painted fenders of OBX with squatch. Not crazy about the black fenders

Funny enough, my wife’s old 2016 Nissan Rogue in a similar silver with black wheels and black accents looked seriously cool. The painted black top, mirror caps and grill of the wildtrak in silver is a good looking vehicle. I imagine black hood graphics will make it look even better.

I own a silver 2015 F150. Went to the dealer today to look at iconic silver on a explorer. The silver on my F150 can’t hold a candle to the new iconic silver. The new silver is a richer more deep color. My choice will definitely be iconic silver big bend with red trim interior. Hopefully on the interior.

Is this CGI? I’m asking because the Iconic Silver in this pic looks fantastic, a nice light, liquid metal. I see colorizer and think it looks boring. I may need to take another trip to the local dealer to see Iconic.

This is the best view of Iconic Silver I have seen. After this I was completely sold.

As far as i know, it's cgi, but it does look great. IS is now leading the pack for what color we will order or big bend in.

I had a 2006 Focus ST that was silver. I loved, as someone pointed out early on in this thread, that it was great how well it hid being dirty. Totally the opposite of my metallic dark grey WRX (probably similar to carbonized grey offered for the Bronco). Up until recently I was totally gung-ho about going the Area 51 route, but the more and more I think about it the more I think silver may be in my future.

LOVE the IS for the 2-door...ideally with a matching body-color top and a Grabber Blue stripe package

If you actually want to go off road, what finish will hold up better? Silver and white won’t show pinstriping as much as a black, red, or grey. Metallics are harder to blend. Tri-coat, yikes. Even though Iconic Silver is likely a metallic finish, it should hold up as well as any option

I've been thinking a lot about a BaseSquatch lately, and if I go with that I'll probably do Iconic Silver since Cactus Gray isn't an option on Base.
