Hi, we are excited to already get our build date, which was much sooner than expected. However, my wife isn't sold on the new Vapor Blue Metallic and wants to see it in person before the car is built in early Nov. I have pictures of it, such as the ones below. But need to really see this in person to be sure.

Any models of Fords out there that have this color already on lots. Doesn't have to be a Mach E, which I know isn't out there anyway. Please let me know if anyone has seen this yet and on what.

Thanks!

I BELIEVE I saw a Bronco in this color driving around yesterday. Can’t be 100% positive though. I’ve also ordered the Vapor Blue.

I believe once you get a date it means you have a Vin and the color is fixed. My first Mustang was a dark blue, vapor blue is pretty close, have seen it on a F150.

As an actual owner of a Bronco, I have those colors down. They do have some similar ones like Azure Gray Metallic (see below) and use to have Area 51 that was also similar (that was a popular color). They are probably very similar in the end with maybe a slight shade off to give it a new name!

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Oh well, better not tell my wife that and just get her convinced she will love it ;)

Interesting that this chart shows Antimatter Blue when it is not available for 2023 Broncos. I know this because I just left the dealer and converted my Bronco order to a 2023 and no Antimatter Blue available.

That's a good point. I recall that color for the 2021s (I know this as it was a runner-up to what I ended up getting), then they removed it in 2022. I would find it hard to believe the brought it back a year later. I may have found a bad source. Let me check that again.

You were right. I just went on Build and Price and "pretend" to buy another ;).... No Antimatter Blue. For the record, these are the colors for 2023 Bronco, which does include that Azure Gray look a alike color along with Area 51. The dark color you see at the top left is regular old black!

Yeah, I don't know if Ford planned to bring it back or not but it was shown on the Bronco 6G forum a while back as coming back for 2023. But additionally about that time they were saying you could get a black painted hardtop for '23 but that turned out to be false also.

I wish the Eruption Green Metallic was available for the MME. I'd have been interested! I don't know if I can justify spending several grand to get it wrapped and I don't think I'd have the patience to try to do the plasti dip myself. Too bad my dad retired and closed his paint & body shop.

Looks to me that Vapor Blue Metallic has entered the realm of BAD-ASS!
Sure hope it looks that good in person.
