You need to see colors in person.

Iconic Silver with some sun. (Under brighter sun as I drove away, it just started looking like, well, silver.)

Close up of Iconic Silver (anyone on this forum feel sorry enough for a high school math teacher to put this sweet thing in my driveway???)

Two shades of gray NOT offered on the Bronco.
Magnetic left, Leadfoot right.

Blue Jeans, also NOT offered on the Bronco.

This color (also NOT on Bronco) is called Infinite Blue Metallic. It it blue in the sun, and dark in the shade (sorry, no pic of that). It makes me want to see Anti-Matter Blue in person, because with our blinding sunlight it might be super dynamic without hurting my eyes (like Rapid Red).

What Ford should offer on the Bronco.??

These are my pictures from Jim Click Ford here in Tucson, AZ, on a rare cloudy day.

NONE of them IMO look to me in person like B&P.

You really do need to see them in person in your part of the world, under your typical lighting conditions.

Currently Carbonized Gray is my top contender. Would you say it is lighter or darker than B&P in real life?

Looks a bit lighter to me.

EDIT - never mind... I see that is Iconic Silver. No wonder it looks lighter. :ROFLMAO:

I went yesterday actually to check out race red which is what I planned on and even on an overcast day, it was WAY too bright so I’m very glad I went to see it and am now leaning toward a few other colors.

This one is actually Iconic Silver before the sun hit it. In dark shade it is really pretty. In bright sun it just looks like all other gray cars.
I haven't been able to find Carbonized Gray in real life.

I did the same thing yesterday to check out Velocity Blue and take a look at the 2.7. I found the Blue to be pretty generic. Leaning toward Silver now.

I thought it was interesting that in the dark clouds or sun, Race is bright. Rapid is dark in shade and bright in sun.

I guess that’s attributed to the metallic finish for rapid, it picks up light differently.
Yeah I couldn’t believe how bright race was on a cloudy day. I’ll probably go black, carbonized or cyber yellow now.

That was my exact thought. I had high hopes for Velocity, but in person it just looks like something you could get on a Hyundai Accent.

Leadfoot would be great on the Bronco. So would Blue Jeans and Magnetic.

I still don't like a single color they offer, Black and White aren't metallic. Velocity is way too bright and generic since its on everything, Race red way too bright, Rapid is still to bright but getting closer, Cyber Orange is too "look at me", Antimatter looks black in shade and on an overcast day, and I am not even going to talk about the rest of the grey pallet because they look gross, I have no idea why anyone wants their truck in the most boring color ever.

I'd keep my reservation if I could get Dark Highland, Guard, or Gem green, Lightning or Blue Jeans blue, or Ruby Red. I would even consider white if it was a metallic like that F-150.

Ford makes me sad. They offer a second white on the F-150, Star Metallic, that I thought was beautiful. Next to Star, Oxford White looks "cheap".?

This has me seeing Iconic Silver as a strong backup. It looks much better than their previous boring iterations of silver. Thanks!

Yeah, the color palette for the Bronco has been shockingly lackluster to me. I really like "Blue Jeans" and imo, it looks very similar to how Antimatter Blue is rendered in the B&P. Sadly, AB looks way too dark in "real life" pics of it. VB is way too bright and AB it way too dark. We don't have that "just right" shade of blue. I had hoped early on that Ford would at least offer "Ford Performance Blue" and a nice rich, forest green. Either would've looked gorgeous with a white top, imo.
