I certainly hope the 2023 Ranger picks up even more DNA from the Bronco... Color sharing is hopefully just a start.

I think it's going to be an exciting time for Ranger Folks...

I still want a Bronco Pickup

Looks like they just shot some clear over the primer.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I thought cactuseseses were green
That is the thing, renders are horrible at displaying it. It has a green metallic in it and changes from primer gray to light green/blue depending on how light hits it. Hard to catch it with a camera too.











For whatever reason my wife likes it and I like it in that it isn't just another generic metallic silver.

And they can be a grayish/greenish color too.

That would be a good color to call “sea foam”

built, not bought
now if the new ranger can pick up that manual transmission.
Ive seen a few vehicles that look like primer grey was used and then clearcoat.
