The 2020 Ranger has Lightning Blue, not sure if the 2021 will or not...but why wouldn't Bronco use LB when it will be made in the same plant as Ranger. If LB was an option over VB, I would be set on color! I prefer the darker Lightning Blue...
Do more people like Velocity of Lightning?

My guess is that the 2021 Ranger will switch to Velocity Blue. I imagine all of the Ranger colors will match the Bronco.

Either is better than Antimatter Almost Black
Antimatter is my leading color right now, I want to like VB, but its "too much" for me I guess. I want a little darker blue. Hoping Antimatter is not as dark as all the pictures are showing...not a good sign though.
If all else fails, there is always Oxford White...

It is no Peacock Blue, but Velocity allows you to match to your Raptor if you so choose. hopefully by 2024 when I go to add another one they will have added Lead Foot or Kodiak Brown. Even better, they have a book full of awesome paint colors. Check out the options from '68, how many Pony Express Bay would they have sold today?

As always to each their own and thankfully there is plenty to pick from. IMO the AMB is to dark fro what i personally want. It is to dark and almost looks black in many of the examples that have been provided.

It could have potential if there were visual changes at different angles and lighting. However it appears if comes off really dark in most settings.

I have a 75 bronco and it is an original oem blue with a white top, I love the look.
I really like the bright rich look of the velocity blue that i have seen on other ford makes and models. My second choice would be a metallic red.
We all really need B&P to finalize decisions along with all the other questions 150K reservation holders have!!!!
Come on FORD this is agonizing!!!

I like lightning blue better. It's a little darker and pops more in the sun. Lightning on the right.

Light Blue w/ White top is the color in my head when I picture a first gen Bronco. VB is the closest we're going to get to it.

Do any of the current blue options look like this? I am having such a hard time actually figuring out what these stinking colors they are offering actually look like.

grabber blue is somewhat close. I would say the last one on the GT350 is very close IMO

Too bad Grabber Blue is not an option...that would be another great option.
