I am boring and I always worry about getting a color that I would get sick of. I went black. It looks stealthy. Then again, I always get black cars ... LOL!
I have had at least one black car/truck since '90 when I bought our '82 Scrambler then T-bird, F-150, X3. Three of our current rigs are black, F-250, Mustang GT, and the Jeep. Change of pace so Cactus Gray it is.

I originally had Area 51 but then changed to eruption green. I kinda feel everyone on the Bronco planet ordered in Area 51. It's a cool color though but the green has kinda grown on me. Doesn't matter though... I've been waiting since July of 2020. Who knows when my Bronco will ever arrive...lol :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Cactus Gray because it close to Haze Gray from my Navy days. There is a reference to it being called Fighter Gray on Mustangs a few years ago.
Nothing to do with aesthetics, but as an Arizonan, I simply can't tolerate the logical fallacy of Cactus grey. Maybe if there was some background green in it, I'd have a different reaction, but cacti are green, not grey. Even if they have a dense coverage of needles that shade the green in grey, the foundational color is still green. I'd have the same reaction "Lava Blue" or "Purple sun".

<personal opinion> I've never liked grey scale colors on cars, so right off the bat that eliminated Oxford White, Shadow Black, Carbonized Grey, Iconic Silver. See above for Cactus Grey. Different logical fallacy for Cyber Orange (sorry it ain't orange, its straight up yellow. Maybe if that had called it Cyber Yellow...). Originally, I thought Area 51, but when I saw it in person, I just didn't like it very much. That left antimatter blue, rapid red, race red, and velocity blue. I nixed AMB for being too dark, and I ended up with a 2022, so it wouldn't have mattered anyway. Rapid Red was too close to my current Escape, and I want something different. Hence, Race Red vs Velocity Blue, which just happens to be the <arguably> two brightest colors offered.

I probably would have gone with the green if it was just a few shades lighter, but the hue they chose just didn't do it for me.

Again, these are my personal opinions. The most important thing about choosing a color is that you choose the color that is YOUR favorite color!

I was originally having trouble deciding between Cactus Grey and Area 51, so much so that I delayed ordering. Then they released the MY22 colours, and I put my money down on Eruption Green immediately.
It'll be my third green vehicle--if it ever comes

Same! I wanted to keep it the same as my dad's bronco from when I was little (pale blue, steelies and white top). A51 was the closest to that, but I also felt like EVERYONE was choosing that (along with CG).
I wentI Iconic Silver because I like my current silver Ford, not many people chose it, and I hope to one day put a matte wrap on it, which would make it look more nostalgic for me.

I like that iconic silver isn't a big color choice. By the way, It sucks, and is ugly so nobody order it !!!

So, I went Area 51 and I love it but, if I did it again I'd go Eruption Green. I've seen it on a Big Bronco and it really has depth!
I was torn between Eruption Green and Hot Chili Pepper Red. I went with Eruption Green. I had the opportunity to see it in person and it was amazing! I am still intrigued by Hot Chili Pepper Red, but am glad I have ordered the Eruption Green.

The mannequin at my dealership was Cactus Gray. On-line photos were meh. But, I really liked it when I saw it in person. Red was my color for a Jeep - a YJ for 14 years and a JKUR for almost 6 years. My husband was always saying getting a green one whenever I was buying a vehicle - yuck!! I wanted the Bronco to be different. So, I went with CG. But, I really like all of the colors. The CG looks different in different lights - in the garage, in a parking lot, on cloudy days, on sunny days. So, I'm happy with my choice - but, while waiting for it, I was doubting it.

I wanted the Saber Orange (Mustang Color) instead of Cyber (School Bus) Orange and Ford said No. So wrapping or paint job it will be when it ever arrives.
I saw a Cyber Orange out in the wild the other night and I have to agree, very much School Bus yellow.

I struggled. Love Area 51 and Cactus grey but guessed everyone would want them. My wife knows my personality and said "you know you want the orange" so we got it and it is amazing. More orange then yellow in person and the metallic pops in the sun. I am also a fan of the desert tan and egreen but nether was an option when I got my VIN. Best of luck. I've found that the stance matters as much or more than the color. Just my opinion. The squatch package fills the wheel wells nicely and looks super tough. If I did not get the sasquatch package I would have been investing in lift, tires, wheels, gears...

In the sunlight is where HPR shines. Eruption green is also a great color. But I had 3 vehicles in a row green so I had to switch it up.

I am actually glad I went with Black. Seems no one else is ordering a Black one. LOL.
I also just don't like standing out or calling attention to me. While I love the Eruption Green and some of the other colors, they are just a bit too flash for me.

I saw an all Black Big Bend with wheels tires and lift that looked super cool. I even like the Base Headlights. Black looks good,

AntiMatter Blue with a Gloss Black Painted hardtop - 2021 Order. That would have been slick.
Stuck with '22 colors now so Carbonized Gray it is. I just can't quite get behind Hot Pepper Red, though it might be great on a BRaptor.

Cyber orange 2 door badlands should be here next week. I was on the fence until I seen a 2 door didn’t care for the 4 door orange. I hope they drop that color next year. I won’t sell it. It can stand by my 1973 till my grand kids sell it.
