Hi, I’m Mike I work at the Dearborn truck plant and I make the F-150s Raptors. I’ve been trying to find a velocity blue raptor bronco for months. Now I’m finally asking the community for help!! must be from a ford dealership “to get payroll deduction” and not marked stupid if you find any that doesn’t have a reservation please shoot me a message. I know it’s been discontinued for the 23 model.

Welcome to BroncoRaptor.com! and a Really Cool signature pic! :cool: There are a number of us members here that are very surprised there isn't any Blue BR's for 2023 and a number of members that had VB unscheduled 2022 orders converted to 2023 thereby losing their favorite color selection. Hang in there as you never know when luck comes your way.

I haven't seen a VB BR in person, however VB F-150 Raptor would be my first choice. Have you seen the new Azure Gray metallic on a Raptor? It appears to have some blue tones to it.

Good luck Mike...I spent one day calling 200 plus Ford dealerships in search of a Velocity Blue Bronco Raptor because of this paint selection being canceled and my build being pushed to 23.
It literally made me sick!

Unfortunately the individual in your account photo may be the best hope you have!!!
Best of luck, I can't blame you for trying!!

Thank you, it was taken at the Mustang revival. Got to chat with Jim for a bit.
Yes I have on the Raptor R it’s not bad but not my first choice.
I wanted the Velocity blue Raptor but it was discontinued. I ended up with antimatter blue Tremor that I followed down the line. But I test drove the bronco raptor and I fell in love. My dealership near me have a VB Branco Raptor out front but it’s sold. 😕

Well I was right there with you in paint choice. Doesn't make much sense when they are still painting the regular Bronco's Velocity Blue.

I finally ended up choosing Code Orange when converting to my 23 BR.

Your Antimatter Blue Tremor looks sweet! I'm sure you are enjoying that also.

The Raptor R would definitely be fun to drive but I enjoy taking the top off also so the BR is my choice also!

Black is the new Orange
IMO, after HPR, this lightly modified shadow black looks hot. Good color match inside and out.

Geez, the Blue ones are crawling out of the woodwork. Search for VIN number and you will get contact info.

$110,000
VIN: 1FMEE5JR1NLA51509

$111,488
VIN: 1FMEE5JR0NLA50206

$115,995
VIN: 1FMEE5JR6NLA51845

$126,500
VIN: 1FMEE5JR9NLA50172

Call for price
VIN: 1FMEE5JR8NLA50356

$119,000
VIN: 1FMEE5JR5NLA50427

$113,900
VIN: 1FMEE5JR7NLA51689

$114,950
VIN: 1FMEE5JR6NLA52252

Use Cars.com website for research. Majority of vehicles have CARFAX and window sticker available. All vehicles have a price history so you can see where the gouging began and how it has dropped over the weeks because the frenzy is dying.

Is jacking the price up $25k, then dropping it $9k actually considered a price reduction?

============================================
Most outrageous price $195,000
VIN: 1FMEE5JR4NLA50838
Black 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor Maxlider - I fail to see what justifies the $124k+ ADM. OMG! :rolleyes:

Just when you thought an ADM of $124k was outrageous, along comes an ADM 2x that.

I will be receiving this one about mid April. Any interest in this color.....I have an offer to sell on the Raptor Market Place too.
I'm looking to get 112,000.00. That lower than I'm seeing at the lots and some of the other vehicle add services.
