Out of sheer curiosity, can anyone tell me why the color ‘ Area 51’ is called that? I used to have a friend that was lifer in the AirForce and he commuted (via plane) M- Fri from Riverside, CA (where I lived) to his job near Las Vega$ to what he termed Arear 51. He never talked about his job …ever.!! His wife said it was top secret and after 20 yrs they had been married she said she never knew what he did or anything g about this Area 51….he refused to talk about it! he once told her “ if I tell you—I’ll have to kill you!
Therefore, knowing that ‘tid-bit’ of info , I am curious about Ford’s choice of choosing this term to
for a Maverick color.
Anyone know?🧐

Not a clue, maybe just some good marketing a Ford for selecting that name. Possible by not giving the color an actual color name it adds a bit of mystique to it…a color without a color name…an unknown…like the true area 51 location. Besides, we now have been show images/videos of ultra fast moving objects. Maybe many of them happened around Area 51 else a alien crash there 30 years ago.

Part of me wants that color if I buy though I feel it will be hard to keep clean for some reason…more so then carbonized gray i am guessing. Silver just seems too plain for me now days.

I am thinking it looks like alien skin therefore the Area 51 name... A51 is the color I picked, I have seen a few Bronco Sports in A51 and it looks good to me. It always looks too blue in pictures, but in person it has more gray/blue look. I wanted to like Cactus Gray, but it looks too green in pictures and almost too white in person. The only other color I considered was Alto Blue, but wanted a lighter color and to keep cost down a little.

Area 51 is the color you see in your mind's eye when you are taken to the underground facility after trespassing onto the base.

those of us in the defense and intel community are really not at liberty to confirm nor deny what may or may not have gone on, or may still be going on at area 51

personally, I am a little surprised that they allowed Ford to use that name - given their long-standing history of denying the area's existence.

Area 51 Blue refers to the restricted air space above the real AREA 51. All restricted air space is marked on aviation charts in blue.
Blue was also the color of the first stealth bomber built in Area 51 the " Have Blue " later changed to the F117.

I just arrived home from going to the Ford dealership in Folsom, CA. There was a brand new Ranger right in front of dealership….it had been purchased by the salesman who was answering my questions. The Ranger was CATUS GRAY….and I saw it in a different way in person …..was disappointed so didn’t submit my order just yet. I thought it would have more of a tinge of green in the gray but yet it doesn’t. overall I like the fact that it wasn’t metallic paint but instead the creamy look but it did just look like a light gray truck. I have had silver/ gray vehicles for 20 yrs and don’t want another so I’m now going to choose Aera 51…..I don’t really care for any of the other colors.
Disappointing.

I thought the Cactus Gray looked “plain Jane”…..just another gray shade.

Have not seen either…well did the Area 51 on a bronco in the wild. Me thinks both might color shift a bit depending on how the light/shade its them. Had a recent gen prius in a green that I really liked…to my eyes…and it seemed to change colors based on how the light hit it at times.

It is a well documented fact that Ford was part of the initial alien experiments and abductions, starting in the 1940s. This color is a direct copy of the eye color from an alien named Alf that many people in the 80s became enamored by when he snuck on a television show.

These are simply the facts. Do your research.

The real stealth fighter & bombers gave the Ford designers the carbonized grey
