Are they going to add a tintcoat/ different primer or something to actually make it look green at all? We can all hope that Cactus Grey looks different from Fighter Jet grey.

Also this would be an opportune time for a "hold on to your butts..." reference.

I have been curious about this for some time. It is highly unusual for a manufacturer to call the exact same paint code different names (total nightmare for the parts department as well!). And have long suspected that there will be a different clear or paint process even if over the same color coat.

This is an interesting development. A few other users and I have gone back and forth about CG and how it has changed appearance based on what was sprayed and when.

Update: FWIW, I reached out to a friend who owns a body shop and they do not have any paint codes from Ford for CG or JFG.

And paint codes have not been uploaded into the database: 2021 Bronco paint codes

And the other thread using the CG "touch up paint" where the paint code was supplied is also not coming up with anything out to the body shops. That is an internal "J" code as best as I can tell. Meaning nobody knows how to mix that paint yet outside of Ford.

Where all this goes, I don't know. Currently the best guess is that we have not seen the production version of cactus gray, but instead we've seen:

1-off hand-painted Showcase model using hand-mixed paint formulation:

And we have seen pre-production paint-booth testing spray, however this does not guarantee that the full production-grade and final paint is being seen here (ie: could be a base layer without tinted clear, but tinted clears are usually "tri-coat" and have an up-charge...)

And we have seen pre-production, Mexican-built Cactus Gray:

And also American-built pre-production pre-early-assembly Cactus Gray testing vehicle:

Personally, I think that it looks killer, even with the new Navy Pier interior.

I liked the old Navy Pier! This interior looks terrible! The blue is darker and the gray is lighter!

The interior clashes with ITSELF!

Surely this pic is off

I like it too
But I’m not a FE reservation holder so my opinion I guess means shit..
I never had any interest in FE, but I would pee myself to have Navy Pier in MGV in my BL.

I think we know that the Ford website isn't truly indicative of CG so I wouldn't trust one image over another at this point

The only CG one that looked really good to me was the white top prototype

I think until you see a CG sport in the real world and not on a screen you won't know what to expect
