You need to see colors in person.

Race only looked Orange to me next to the Rapid. I saw a Race Red Mustang parked all by itself and that just looked red. But I agree about seeing it from far away. Before I even got to the dealer you could spot the two Race Red vehicles from half a block away. I am just sad that Race isn't offered on the Base.

Is your hubby's truck hard to keep clean? Does it show scratches badly?
Race is like fire engine red. I think Rapid is slightly deeper red, but still bright like race red. We live on a dirt road, so our trucks are always dirty. It washes fine and I don't see any scratches even though he goes through brush.

Thanks. Good things to know. Do you have a pic of the truck nice and dirty? AZ cars get dirty just sitting in your driveway. I love how the Ford website shows most of the CGI vehicles with dirt on them.
I agree, Race is Fire Engine Red.

I don't have any pics of our trucks. It's not rainy season right now, so minimal mud. We have the same problem with dirt attaching to vehicles out here!

I wonder if the carbonized gray was there last week. I was just strolling around looking at every frikken sticker looking for Bronco colors. Maybe I will have some free time next week to visit Jim Click again. Somebody here claimed that Explorer also comes in Carbonized Gray.
Here is a ā€˜21 Explorer in the Carbonized Grey. Lighter than in the B&P but darker than in the picture. Rapid Red Explorer next to it as well.

Sorry I just realized the carbonized gray is actually "on order". I looked over the whole lot for that and antimatter blue but later realized both were not actually in stock but on order. Wife approves of rapid red though! Would still like to go back and take a peek at AMB when it gets in for fun.

I agree that Race Red is crazy bright but the reason I think it might work well on a Bronco is that there is so much that isnā€™t red on a Bronco; back tire, big bumpers, hard top and I kinda want it to look like it belongs in a kidā€™s sandbox. Also since I really like the 1960 Bronco color choices (hell I like the 1980 Bronco color choices) I want a two coat simple finish that looks more period than the three coat metallic options. Also, there is no subtlety in race red. You donā€™t have to lay awake all night wondering if itā€™s really grey, or more blue, or is there hints of green, we just get -Boom- red:)

When will the Sports hit the lots, where we can see the cross over colors?

My dealer had a couple Carbonized Grey Explorers. These pics are in the sun. It does look a shade darker in person. All in all it's a gorgeous color, IMO.

All this time I was never mad at Ford like so many people here. I am thrilled with what they've managed to pull off in the middle of a pandemic. But today that all changed...

I was at a different dealership than last week looking for the elusive carbonized gray in person when I saw it...

Ford is offering the Mustang in Wimbledon White!!!

It was so beautiful I almost started crying. THAT is the color white the Bronco is supposed to be. That was the color of the Ford I learned to drive on. Ford, why did you decide to torture me like that?

They should be arriving by the time we have to order. But this year, who knows what else will go wrong. You may want to ask your local dealer if/when they are getting any. Plus, I am sure people here will be letting everybody know as soon as we see some.

Lead Foot or Blue Jeans would be awesome. As would Grabber Blue.
