Here are some great photos of the Bronco Sport Outer Banks in Cactus Gray.

Keep in mind that this is sunset lighting, which casts an orange tint on the color.

Finally, really wanted more photos in non-marketing lit areas while there’s still time to make a change. New color, new vehicle. bit of s risk. Looks great though. Definitely sticking with my choice.

After seeing all the "seafoam green" looking CG photos out there I had finally decided to switch to a different color...and now these pics come out. This is the version of CG that sold me initially. Now I'm really leaning towards switching back to CG but what pics do we trust?

Just goes to show that Cactus Gray will be a chameleon color and in real life and will take on different looks depending on the conditions.

I made this suggestion earlier today on sister-site Bronco6G.com -- conduct an image search for "cactus gray" at https://www.bronco6g.com/forum/imagesearch/

That will produce a wide range of real life pics so far on the big Bronco, giving you the best idea of the gamut of looks to expect from Cactus Gray.

Great suggestion, thanks! It truly is a chameleon color..

A few thoughts on those photos,

1. Some photos are from early prototypes. i wonder if Ford was trying out slightly different formulas and coatings. It‘s difficult to associate all that range to lighting alone. Would be nice to see the same photos as above on a sunny day.

2. It seems like white trim and top really brings out the mint.

3. I wonder if Ford is using a special finishing coat on the full size Bronco. I had a friend working at GM who said their popular white diamond tri-coat that looks pearl was supposed to just be white. Somehow that final treatment came out a bit pearl and everyone said, whoa, we can sell this. So now they charge a premium for what was a surprise. Point being, maybe the full Bronco is getting a special protective coat that brings out more of the mint. i haven’t seen a single mint like shot of the sport, though footage Is still limited.

Yeah, the sea foam green look isn’t good, but those pics look like flat gray, much like the lead foot gray on the f150, but a few shades lighter.

I resonate with the indecision! I originally ordered CG, then switched it to Oxford White. Now strongly considering switching back to CG because of these pics haha

From my experience, white hides daily road grime. While it will always look best washed, dust and road grime just blends. Whereas a dark vehicle such as black, always shows the dust and dinge.
I had a white Ford Explorer Limited years ago, and It always looked good whether I washed it or not. I would never get a dark colored vehicle again. With the Bronco, my preference is Cactus Grey.

So how are we feeling about Cactus Gray with that Ebony/Brown leather interior? Honestly not sure if that combo would look great or terrible..
It certainly is different I like the cactus Gray because it’s unique but I can say the interior won’t be matching the exterior at all imo

Is the armrest dark or brown leather colour? This example shows dark brown but the Ford website shows brown. What am I missing?

Wow - i guess I never realized how much wider/ "fatter" it gets right below the window/glass area when looking from behind. Looks beefy!
