Ford Bronco Releases Two New Hues for ’22


By Dusty Rhodes

For the 2022 model year, Ford is announcing revisions to the Bronco color choices expected to go into production in December of this year.

New Colors

Responding to requests from the Bronco enthusiast community, Eruption Green will be added to the eleven color 2022 model year palette and debuted in the Bronco Corral at the Woodward Dream Cruise on Saturday. Ford indicated Eruption was inspired by Mallard Green, an iconic Bronco color which made its way into a comprehensive color palette of 34 truck colors in 1973.

Additional colors options being added for 2022 include Hot Pepper Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, and Cyber Orange availability added to Base and Big Bend models.

Deleted Colors

Antimatter Blue, Lightning Blue Metallic and Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat will be available exterior color options until 2021 ordering is closed.

For owners who have a schedule order in this color, you should be in good shape. If your order is not scheduled, you will have to switch colors for 2022MY, unfortunately. If you want to increase your chances to receive your Bronco sooner, here is your chance to switch to a soft top.

For some these new color choices will be welcome news; for others, it may take a trip to an upcoming Bronco event to see the new colors in person to make a decision. Stay tuned to Bronco Nation and our social channels for full coverage of the color reveals this weekend.



    1. I totally agree Ford is continued to screw up stuff The reassuring of the t-bird the reassurging of the Lincoln Continental which they spent a ton of money on and they didn’t sell not very many of them and other debacles like the pinto the mustang twos like the list goes continuously goes on and on and on The EcoBoost system is a big failure and down here in Arizona they don’t hold up very well I have a friend that went to nine starters and is Ford F-150 and Ford wouldn’t cover it so he traded the truck in and he bought a Ford ranger The Ford ranger is grossly underpowered It needs a V6 not a four-cylinder turbo Ford is continuing to make mistakes they’re a good car company but they need better engineering

  1. We have been in talks with our Ford dealership to purchase this since 2019 and because of Ford’s own production delays, they now want us to change from our favorite color? We could have suffered through all the delays, but this may push us to buy something else. They should have at least honored the orders that were already placed at dealerships.

  2. They should have respected the order placed almost a year ago and 1 1/2 year reservation holders.
    What great DISGUST & DISGRACE .
    This one is ALL on “FORD” no excuses to point blame at others.

    1. Idiots obviously!! They should revamp this shyt show! I guess I will Ask for a refund of my 1k deposit since I cant get antimatter blue!! Complete disaster and they can just blame themselves! None of this is rocket science release some old school colors with new colors. Instead let’s just use the same ones we have on most models.

  3. Ford should honor the orders for the colors that was offered when the order was placed. Shouldn’t have to switch to a soft top just to get the color they offered

  4. I’m liking the Eruption Green. If there’s a light at the end of this proverbial tunnel, it’s the new color choices. My Rapid Red Metallic is gone, but I’ve been hoping for a green.

    1. Same – It was the color I wanted to begin with. Hoping can just make a color change when they notify to change order for MY22 and everything else remains the same.

  5. This does not make me happy! Not only do I not have a Bronco for in 2021, now I have to change my order. I’m sure changing colors will delay my order even longer.

  6. I’m not liking that the color I chose in January when I placed my order is going away. Like so many others have said, Ford should make some exceptions due to all of the issues that have occurred during this launch. I get it that most of the issues weren’t Fords fault. I’m fine with changes on second year vehicles but early reservation holders like myself, are getting the shaft. I know a lot of people have asked for the green but I personally do not have any desire to have a vehicle of that color of green. How can you not even be offering any blue options? I have defended Ford so many times (regarding the Bronco release) and haven’t expressed any real negative towards them. I am completely un happy with these current decisions.

  7. Echoing what others have said. Early reservation and order holders SHOULD have the option of keeping the color we ordered. Not happy at all to be forced out of my rapid red 😒

  8. Guys, read the article…it says those colors will be available until 2021 ordering is closed. So if you’ve already placed your order for one of those colors, you should be ok 👍🏼 the antimatter blue is a beautiful color, I personally love it. The only reason we can think of is they can’t get their hands on the resins to create those colors 🤷🏼‍♀️ I still think Ford hit it out if the park with this vehicle and can’t wait to get mine 😁

  9. It states schedule Order for 2021.
    I have in deed ordered . “Not Scheduled”
    Res – July 14. 2020 10:30 am
    Completed Order-Jan 2021

  10. Here. We. Go. Words cannot express how pissed I am that Rapid Red is being dropped. I reserved day 2 over a freaking year ago. We have been delayed over and over. I have been understanding so far in all this. Even as people who RESERVED in 2021 are getting their Bronco before me. Fine – I’ll just wait to get what I want- 2DR Badlands Squatch 2.7 High in Rapid Red. Then all us 2DR people get screwed again & bumped BY FORD to next year. Fine- I’ll keep holding on a little longer to get what I want. So excited to go pick up our new 22 Super Duty yesterday that we ordered in Rapid Red to match my Bronco, that we just ordered in May & still got here before the Bronco. Fine. I can wait a little longer to get what I want. Then I come back to THIS news of no Rapid Red for next year where YOU freaking forced us 2DRs to. I can only take so much Ford. All I want is MY Bronco. And I will NOT be changing to a more door soft top to MAYBE get the freaking color I want this year. I have never in my life had such a hard time trying to give someone $55K- cash in hand, just ready to be handed over. Hell hath no fury Ford….. An old square body Blazer and a new RZR is sure starting to look like a better option to this girl. Please do something to make me hold on! Keep Rapid Red. No one asked for that ugly ass pepper color that no one wanted on their Ranger either.

  11. This is infuriating. Why remove colors when you’re so far behind that MOST people are being forced to get a 2022 model? I wanted an anti-matter blue and I was told by my dealer that I had to wait for a 2022 model to get my reservation turned into an actual order. Because of Fords delays now I get shafted out of my color, adding insult to injury. Might just cancel my order now, just mind boggling stupid.

  12. Have had my vin on mine for six months let get the orders in delivered before u start giving more option on 2022

  13. Is this one bigger then the 21 because I was so disappointed in it I was looking for a bigger one like the size of the regular older model I wanted one so bad till I see it in person so please let this one be bigger

  14. Just when i was getting up after getting slapped down due to hard top issues and my 2door order, Ford rips my Antimatter Blue away from me!!! #uck!!! $hit WTH?????????? What’s next? Sorry, this just in, you can get a soft top for your 2 door but only in cyber orange… 😳😳😳😳😳

  15. Sacriledge on the part of Ford Motor Company !! If Henry Ford II we’re alive today heads would roll for doing away with the company color in any model let alone the return of an icon like the Bronco . After all , it was created during the era of Henry Ford’s II time . I say bring back Grabber Blue !! Give customers what they want , not the company . I too am delayed on my reservation !! I considered a color change from iconic silver to velocity blue , guess I’m staying with silver now .

  16. I purchased a Bronco five weeks ago, two tone red/Black and just yesterday I trades it in for a Toyota Tacoma. Five weeks of sitting in a can, small surroundings, under powered, horrible rear seating and if someone is over 235 pounds, forget it you cannot fit. Horrible designed vehicle, very small rear hatch room and small seats. Do yourself a favor if looking for a new vehicle stay clear if this failure in design and comfort. I’m sure in a year or two Ford will take this vehicle off the market.

  17. I’ve been patient during this entire process, but losing it fast. Wildtrak, lux package, antimatter blue, MIC hardtop, tow package, 7/14 reservation, 3/19 order date, and a crappy dealer with the worst communication. I’ve accepted the longer wait due to what I’ve ordered and I’m willing to wait to get the build I want, but taking away the color I love after all of this is just wrong!! Come on, Ford ~ where’s the integrity and loyalty to those of us who have been patient and supportive to you during this whole mess??

  18. Bronco team I hope that you are all reading this negativity it doesn’t do the Blue Oval any justice!! The more I read more second thoughts I’m having in regards to my order even though I am willing and have already been told I will have to wait until 2022 for the two door model that I want . I just hope the bronco team along with Ford motor company will come to its senses soon !!

  19. I have NEVER ordered a brand new vehicle with all the options of my choices and the color of my choice BUT NOW due to problems at FORD I have to wait another year and LOOSE the color I picked. Not being a young person anymore I doubt if I will ever do this again and have been patient which I will keep the faith going that FORD WILL NOT delete the original colors from our first year !!! PLEASE let me keep my ANTIMATTER BLUE on my BRONCO as I don’t want to loose the hope.

  20. The only thing I can figure is Ford must be dropping those two colors from their entire lineup. Otherwise why drop either color from the Bronco? I chose to wait for a 22 because of all the delays, but it’s still aggravating! AMB was the only color the wife and I really wanted. Sorry, but neither of the new colors are something we would pick.

  21. How about I send back the hammock and the drawing that you gave me and you guys at Ford give me my color that I ordered? Sounds like a reasonable exchange to me.

  22. Ford motor company/bronco team, this whole matter was a no brainer on both of your parts !!! Instead of illuminating antimatter blue and velocity blue and the rapid red , all you needed to do was add the Eruption green to the present color pallet for the Bronco model . You mean to tell me that you are not going to offer either blue on both your F1 50 truck line and your Mustang lineup ?? If so there are going to be a lot of very unhappy people out there !! I have read all these posts and all comments in regards to color discontinuation . This is a very bad move on your parts !! After reading all this negativity I am glad that I still have my 94 bronco which is a third bronco I’ve had since 1979 !!! I fell in love with these trucks since my first one and have driven them for over 30 years of the last 42 years . I’ve been waiting to see this make a come back since 1996 this is no way by far to bring back a vehicle and I’m sure that everyone that’s put comments in will definitely agree this is not the way to bring back a vehicle !!!! I only hope and pray that someone up at the top will come to their senses open up their eyes and their ears and listen to all the customers again I say give the customers what they want !! Jeep is laughing at us right now Is this the sort of publicity that you people want ?? I don’t think so !! Again please listen to us as customers !!! Bring back the BLUE!!!

  23. It is curious that they deleted three colors to add two. I would think that given the production delays that they would keep the same colors from MY21 and then add extras to MY22. That would help to manage the wait. I ordered an Anitmatter Blue and was really looking forward to it. I don’t see any colors in MY22 that really excite me. I spent a day running around to 3 different dealers to get my eyes on the MY21 colors the day before I put my order in. It looks like i will have to do the same again. I don’t want to not get the 2.7L, the Lux package, the Sasquatch package, and the hard top just so I can get the color I want. I’m not altogether sure that I would even get a MY21 Bronco if I switched things around. Maybe a call to the dealer is in order to see what they say…

  24. Love the green, it’s gorgeous. But I’ve already moved on. Bought a new Subaru almost 2 weeks ago.

  25. Tell your dealers to submit official complaints to their Ford reps. This is ridiculous, and unacceptable. I completely understand supply chain constraints, but eliminating options , especially colors, at this point when we placed reservations in early July, and orders in early 2021 is purely BS. Is there another valid channel to voice complaints to Ford directly? I want Antimatter on my Wildtrak.

  26. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating
    it but, I’d like to shoot you an email. I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

  27. Yea, I have an order for Badlands, I am jumping ship and getting a used Rubicon for 20,000 less and I will have it this month. Sad day, I was so looking forward to the new Bronco.

  28. I am now not certain where you’re getting your info, however good
    topic. I needs to spend a while studying much more or working out
    more. Thank you for fantastic info I was searching
    for this information for my mission.

  29. obviously like your web site however you need to check the spelling
    on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very troublesome to tell the truth nevertheless I will
    surely come back again.

  30. My spouse and I stumbled over here from a different website and thought
    I may as well check things out. I like what I see so now i am following you.
    Look forward to looking over your web page yet again.

  31. Undeniably imagine that which you said. Your favourite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest factor to be mindful
    of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as other people consider issues that they plainly
    do not recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined
    out the entire thing without having side effect
    , people can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more.
