I think this blue looks great on the Bronco Raptor! It's between this and black for me right now.

I love the metallic in the Velocity Blue, if not for the Code Orange I would have ordered VB, maybe the next one.

Nice looking rig. some random observations:
-no Raptor badge or Bucking Bronco badge on tailgate. I know this is a pre-prod/demo unit...just curious why
-has the forged wheels...awesome
-what is the yellow cable running under the passenger side mirror? for the antenna?
-black skid plate...again a preproduction thing I assume

There are a lot of really nice colors to choose from although I did choose this one. I have to say as many times as I have looked at these pictures this was the first time I saw the hood wind deflector. I better start paying better attention and quit drooling....haha.

These test Bronco Raptor photo's with the black bumper and skid plates I suspect is the ones we have seen for months with the blank and white camo that later had the bumper exposed, therefore the black was part of the camo. The "Raptor" badges would have also not been present as we may have also noticed those under the black and white camo or maybe the "Raptor" name was yet to be determined. We are now just seeing them with the camo removed. Appears the yellow cable is a diagnostics hookup for the open laptop on the console.

I do love VB as well. My 73 Bronco is Bahama Blue. It’s a lighter shade than this of course. I jokingly said that they should have some retro colors for us early Bronco enthusiast. We could have matching pairs! Old and new!

I wonder if this is the same one that's been spotted lately running away from the camera? 😂

Looks the same with the front air/bug deflector however the license plate number is different, plate number in the video is 096M008 vs 047M955 in the above photos. I'm guessing, maybe the deflector was there to test the effect on the engine with the heat extracting hood, would make sense why the video was in a warmer climate. Or, it could be just to reduce bugs on the windshield, or effect on gas mileage.

Does the bug deflector help at all with rocks and the windshield cracking?

Color has been the hardest decision. Wish I could see them all in person to make a better choice. Currently have hot pepper red ordered but the velocity blue is growing on me. I like black too but just so hard to keep clean. Even more difficult with a vehicle like this that will be spitting up a ton of road debris and mud etc.

If you can go to one of the bronco test rides they have a lot of Jerry cans painted the colors of the broncos

I looked at a hot pepper red Ranger Tremor a few weeks ago. That color is beautiful. I’ll throw out some pics, but again it’s better in person. I loved the way the sun hit it. There are lots of good colors. I saw most of them at the Bronco Super Celebration last year.

I personally don’t think the black pops, but we all have our opinions. That’s what makes the world go around!
