For a silver, it looks to have more character than the 100s of other silver vehicles I see driving around. I have to see this in person first though.

For me, I've been leaning toward Carb Gray but Iconic Silver seems to have more character (especially after looking at the images posted by @Hossamus Prime above).

Its one thing to build in 'character'....quite another to CGI it after the fact.

If you look at the 2-door image above, note that the B-pillar and MIC top are exactly the same color/shade.
Now compare that to the real-life Bronco below. The images Ford puts out are about as realistic as pictures in a Russian bride catalog.

Trust me... I was. You must have missed my post about my wife squashing A51 as an option. :cry:

That's a good point. I really need to see these in person before I can decide.

I'd argue that a factory photo is just as unrealistic. The light blows everything out. I'm not under factory fluorescent lights often.

From what I've seen Iconic Silver looks best under grey skies. Really shows some contrast on the panels.

Edit: This has likely been posted before but this Mustang is a far cry from the factory photo on the Bronco.

Surf green or seafoam green? Huge difference between colors often confused for each other.

My 1972 was Seafoam Green, just like that example

This is the best view of Iconic Silver I have seen. After this I was completely sold.
I saw it in person last weekend indoor on a GT500. It looked stunning. But have not seen it in sunlight. One think to keep in mind, the Bronco is no GT500 :) meaning the lines will throw you off and the 500 has a LOT of black accents which the bronco does not. Especially with that stupid MIC gray :(

This color is on the top of my list. But I need more black on the 2DR bronco regardless.

100% correct....mustangs get their sex appeal from those lovely curves. Bronco is closer to a refrigerator on its side....that may drive me to a body color with more 'pop' than iconic
