Recently, Ford invited members of the media to come experience driving the 2022 Bronco Everglades at Michigan’s Drummond Island. The motor company also gave those in attendance a sneak peek at a new color coming for Bronco in 2023.

Hint of Heritage

As you can see from the pictures above, the camouflaged Bronco had hints of the new paint color exposed on the tailgate, doors, and rockers. The light bright blue resembles the Gen 1 Wind Blue, an option from 1972-75.

This is the second time in recent history Ford has picked from the classic colors toolbox for the 6th Gen Broncos. In August of 2021, it introduced this year’s Eruption Green, inspired by the 1973 Mallard Green.

Stay tuned to the Bronco Nation for more news surrounding this color, coming soon. If you love the ties between earlier generations of Broncos and the latest, check out this walk through the Ford archives!

What do you think about this new color? Which additional colors do you want Ford to add? Tell us in the forums.



  1. Not a color I would have owned on any car and I still can’t figure out what the big deal is over the green!

    1. I agree with you. “Bad to the bone” is not a term I would see being thrown down when referencing this color on a bronco.

        1. I have been waiting for my Outerbanks model since October 2020. It finally got built on May 1, 2022 but is sitting on some lot in Michigan waiting to be shipped to the dealer. They are short on transports now.

  2. Jerez. The haters! I like the green color. I might have gotten that color if I had the option. Mine is cactus Grey which I’m very happy with. I wouldn’t mind getting a hardtop with digitized grey/granite wrap. I think it would look pretty cool.

  3. I was never crazy about it, but that test vehicle has other interesting details like the gloss black around the tail light and the entire top. And if it was an Everglades, this one is a 2-door!

  4. I have always liked browns and coppers, the darker the better. Magma Red and Kodiak Brown are two of my favorites. Can’t even get them on an F250/350 now.

  5. I’ve been saying for a while now. But I want Grabber Blue like on the mustangs. That would be awesome.

  6. Diamond Blue with a white top would be my choice if I could pick a retro color to bring back

  7. The car i have been order thats
    matter,even so many color,but the main reason no car so you introduce
    new color for what,just speed up the product for old order from Jan 2021( been pushed to 2022)

  8. I bought my 1973 Bronco in 1995 as the second owner. It is Wind Blue and all original steel. For me, having a 73 and 23 with the same colors would be just fine. I like my Rapid Red but the matching pair would be cool.

  9. I had to wait almost 2 years for my Bronco and I can’t be happier. I absolutely love it. I have had no issues at all. Any issues I’ve heard about are been repaired immediately by Ford. They are doing the best they can with what they have. Everyone has supply issues right now. Would you rather they slap parts together sloppy like or build it right? Trust me it’s worth the wait.

  10. Has anyone had to have their 22 Bronco’s radio system replaced? Only had it a couple months and no radio : / A whole new system needs to be replaced.

  11. I love it!! I ordered an eruption green WildTrak and declined my order because I decided I wanted a hard top. I actually really like this color and the gloss top is amazing as well!! I wonder what a white top would look like? 🤔

  12. Still waiting to place my order since I held out for the black hard-top. Only problem now is they don’t have my color of choice, Rapid Red. I am so heartbroken. Held out and now I might have to change my vehicle of choice due to color. Ugh! This whole thing has been frustrating. Especially after getting into an accident and having to wait almost 2 months to get my FJ fixed. I just want my Bronco, already. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️
