I love them both. I would have totally ordered a chartreuse Maverick if the color was available.

Lucky me I got to park next to the other ugly color that Ford came up with in the last few years!

Came here expecting a rant on Area 51 and Cactus Gray. I would name them both "Government Desk"

Hahaha! That's great. :cool: I do pretty much listen to everything though, from Beach Boys to K-POP including Pre-90's Country, 70's-80's R&B. Quite eclectic. Just no metal or hard rap.

I do not understand the attraction of either color. :sick:

Alto blue, hot pepper red, carbonized gray and velocity blue are all beautiful colors, to me. To each his own I guess.

I live in the desert. My house is on a dirt street that I reach by driving on some other dirt streets. (It's in an odd 1950s equestrian neighborhood in the middle of the city).

I see the attraction of any color that will hide the dust.

After searching through the 1423 grey, light grey, and black SUV’s today at the mall to find my escape, I’m gonna order cyber orange!

That makes sense. Mind you I am not criticizing anyone's choices and I'm very glad Ford provided these colors and that people are happy with their choices The desert environment is so different from what I am used to that it's hard to wrap my mind around those issues.

I feel personally attacked…😆 Seriously though, I really like Cactus Grey because it looks like rattle can primer! I used to rattle can all my old cars back in the day because I was too broke to get a real paint job. So now my truck matches my old ‘70 Mustang which is still wearing rattle can primer..🤘🏻

I actually liked both 😂 I hate to admit I was happy to see American manufacturers getting adventurous with color.

If I ordered XLT I would've absolutely ordered cyber orange

I love blue but Alto is just a shade too dark and Velocity reminds me of a children's toy. If velocity was more metallic or a shade darker I'd love it. Every F150 around me is either white or carbonized grey so I really didn't want to go with that and while I think Hot Pepper Red is a beautiful color I think it really belongs on the offroader Mavs not so much the hybrids.

A51 with the lariat interior I thought looked amazing so I switched to that from Silver. I hated A51 at first but the more I looked at it the more it felt like that color belonged on the Maverick. I think this partly is because the tail lights are more red.

Alto blue is VERY dark but it looks amazing in direct sunlight, otherwise you will think it is a metallic black. That little surprise is what got my attention.

Haven't seen velocity blue up close and in person but it looks like a nice shade of metallic blue to me. The silver ain't bad, it's just very bland.

The only non metallic color that I like is black, which is what I ordered - in the past I've noticed it's a lot easier to rehab scratched black paint for resale. Living in a northern climate helps. If I was way down south it would be white.
