Struggling with color choice

21880 Views 81 Replies 44 Participants Last post by  East Tn.
Is anyone else struggling with color selection? Usually I prefer white, but it clashes with all of the charcoal cladding. Area 51 sometimes has a baby blue vibe...Cactus gray sometimes looks minty green...
The other thing to consider is how the exterior color will work with the blue panels in the XLT interior and the orange trim. I prefer grey/black interior surfaces but I'm not willing to give up cruise control and alloy wheels with the XL option.
I used to only own black vehicles but they really show dust/dirt and are extremely hot here in the dirty south.
Am I the only one who is having difficulty????

I usually like white as well but on a small, somewhat plain truck like this, it kinda screams fleet truck. I agree with your thoughts on Area 51 and Cactus Grey. Everyone seems to be screaming Area 51 but I am not a fan at all. I have a Carbonized Grey Metallic Ranger and have truly come to enjoy the color. It is dark but not very dark. I find it to be lighter than most other charcoal-ish vehicles. Personally, I think it hides dirt better than any other color. I ordered my Mav in CGM for these reasons and also because I think it will blend in with the charcoal cladding better than any other color.

I’ve changed my mind quite a few times and since I haven’t ordered one I will probably change it a few more times lol. I really like the Cyber Orange because it looks more yellow and I like that but I like the XL interior better and a XL hybrid is really all I need and want. I will probably go with Silver, gray or white even if they aren’t flashy and there’s millions of them out there. I will also be changing the rims so the work/fleet truck look would be temporary.
I thought I might like the XL interior better too until I realized that other than the seats, it actually has more blue than the XLT.

Can you explain on this topic? How does a XL have more ‘blue’ then a XTL please?
So as best I can tell, other than the seats and the small soft armrest portion of the door panels, everything that is blue in the XLT is also blue in the XL. Virtually all of the hard plastics. The biggest part of the door panels, the entire center console, etc. And if I’m not mistaken, the large hard plastic face portion of the dash that is the funky white-ish color in the XLT is blue in the XL.
It doesnt.
So no, it doesn’t. Ford has updated their build and price pics and it looks like the XL dash face plastic is dark gray now. In previous views, it was clearly navy. But…my point was, I was considering the XL because I thought the entire interior would be dark gray. This is not correct. ALL of the hard plastics that are navy in the XLT are still navy in the XL (and Lariat I do believe). If you’re looking to get an XL because you aren’t a fan of the blue, you’re wasting your time.
