Area 51 XLT parked right beside a Bronco. You can really see the size difference here:

Who wouldn't like a badass Bronco? But yeah, I'm looking for a sweet-spot vehicle and can't rationalize a Bronco on so many levels.

So, I just drove about 25 minutes past 2 Ford dealerships to take a look at Area 51 in person.

I can say with certainty that I ordered the correct color. Pictures do not do it justice, it is not robin egg blue in the sun. I am at peace with my choice. 🙂😌

My indecision was kicking in and triggering my anxiety, so this drive was necessary. 😅 I hope this helps!

I might do the same. I'm worried about it looking just as you were, robins egg or powder blue or something. It looked so much darker in the build order.

I would definitely take the time to research dealers around you and see if any of them have an Area 51 Bronco/Bronco Sport. I can tell you that as soon as I saw it, my concerns were gone.

Hey sorry if this is a weird question but can I ask how tall you were? I am 6’1 and ordered mg A51 XLT this week. I am just concerned I may be too tall for it! I’m so excited and will probably have some kind of breakdown if I can’t fit my long legs inside it!

I've got bronze wheels on my current vehicle (white), and I feel bronze can be pulled off on the Area 51 also. I know most will be happy with the factory gray or black, but I'm probably gonna go for a bronze aftermarket wheel. Seeing some pics of another Area 51 with some beefy AT tires confirmed that I really like it. I won't get this wheel pictured, but have an idea of the wheel I want already. Probably not for everyone, though, which is fine with me.

Funny story. Yesterday I noticed an Area 51 Bronco Sport in a garage near my house. This morning, it pulls out ahead of me on the the way to work. Immediately I was like, that's not Area 51, it's Cactus Gray, but man did it look more gray than white. I keep looking at it and now I'm not sure if it wasn't actually Area 51. I think both of the colors are so cool because they look completely different in all kinds of lighting. I'll have to keep watching for it and see if I can figure it out!
