Maybe I should see if my body shop has the formula for these codes and shoot a test panel if possible.... I need to get a few little die cast Broncos and have them sprayed... wheels are turning in my head.

I'm sure this has been pointed out, but based on the paint that shows speckles in these swatches and the ones that don't, it indicates metallics.

Race Red - No Speckles and it's not metallic
Iconic - Speckles and it's metallic.

I wish I was at home. I'd have so much fun with this in photoshop LOL.
Pretty much confirms a manual option

Which ones are cheaper to fix?

That's part of why fighter jet and area 51 appealed to me - too many metallic colors out there already.

Transit was a complete game changer for us allowing businesses that couldn't use a Ford product to come back or try the blue oval for the first time. Bronco will be a lot like this when it comes to off road enthusiasts and that community finally having a different option and a spot at the blue oval. We wouldn't have a Jeep product in the family if this vehicle had already been offered. I don't think our Jeep is going anywhere, because it would break my daughter's heart, but there will be more than one vehicle like it within the household.

I'm with 'ya on this one Crispy, I too only have a Wrangler because I couldn't get anything like it from Ford at that time, but I am hoping and praying that Ford comes through and allows me to say "bye-bye" to the Wrangler and returning to an all Ford stable. Smart move on Ford's behalf having a "specialist" at the dealer. I never liked when salesman gave me that fake "yeah" not having a clue what I am asking about, made me want to leave and find another dealer. The only problem with that was …...…… hard to find a dealer with gearheads for salespeople.

Had a salesman in the shop the other day and asked him jokingly "so when are the Bronco's arriving at your store" his response was "Huh, what, Bronco? ….. oh next year, I think". Thought to myself ..... NOT going to you for one, you are clueless. :like:

Fewer and fewer vehicle salespeople are involved with any aspect of vehicles outside of their shift in the showroom. If it isn't the car store, then it's Home Depot or Ashley furniture whatever on their next business card.

Very true !! I see it everywhere I go and THAT is the problem with the newer generations. NOONE applies themselves. To busy in the DAMN phone !!!! I see/hear/deal with it all day long, I hear, "the other store said …. blah blah blah" and my reply, "because his computer didn't tell him that. I know from experience how to find your part/fix your problem", that is why you should shop here not there. I gain many new customers that way. Knowledge and customer service goes A LONG way (in my opinion). Then there are other customers that don't care, they just like complain. I have had employees ask if I need a hand and when I explain to them what to do they look dumbfounded and just stand there. You just gotta love it because if this continues on its present course we are ALL in trouble. i.e. if you can't go to the store to buy food guess you are gonna starve if you don't know how to "Kill it and Grill it".

I'm hoping they really spend the time and money to put together a real "ride and drive" event for us. They used to do this with every new roll out in the 90's and 2000's but it got to be extremely expensive and the liabilities were crazy. Some of the events we attended used to have drag races between different models, road courses, and really awesome obstacles. I haven't been to one of those events since the 2015 F-150 was launched. I can't figure out when it died. I totally expected something like this for 2020 Explorer, but it never happened. Now it seems that they do it for the media, but not for dealers.
I went to one of these events for the F-150 at the local racetrack. It was awesome !!

I remember this happening for the 2004 F150 and I got to go drive the course for that. Pretty fun time. Would love to get that kind of chance with the Bronco again

lol...maybe You should teach the class. Forum members are fortunate to have had you in the process these last many months.
There will be a time where I’ll be able to give everyone any answer they’re after. Hopefully when/if we do off site training I’ll be able to film or photo some of it. If/when we do it and I get a timeline, I plan to put together a list of things people want to know and get solid answers for you all as long as they will allow.

Depends. Three stage paints like Rapid red have a tinted clear that isn’t easy to lay down so that’s going to be more expensive. Standard metallics and non metallics are pretty simple.

My thoughts on the colors - Ford would be incredibly stupid to do all this work to come out with Bronco and then give it an incredibly boring color palette with no Mustang-esque "wow" colors, so I doubt 1) those are accurate representations of the colors, and 2) those are all the options.
