Can't agree more Ford's color choices are bland I want a nice green color like I've seen on a colorado not Green Gem like was on the F150 it looked black except in bright sunlight.
"Guard" is coming back on the 2021 F-150. It was a 2016-17 Explorer option and I think Superduty. the 2021 Ranger Configurator should be up on or after September 14th; the day the order guides hit the dealers. Hope Guard and/or Cactus Grey (Bronco & Bronco Sport) will be available on the Ranger. Job 1 is in December.
2021 F-150 in Guard. It looks satin finished in the configurator, but I think it will be glossy like it was before.

To me the list is:

- 2.7L V6 availability
- 6 feet bed with the super crew
- fold flat back seat
- flat floor in the back
- option for vinyl flooring even in the higher trims

This would seriously make me reconsider the new Bronco as I will be a late buyer.

The new Ranger will probably be announced or leaked by the time I am ready to buy a Bronco and if these options are possible, it will be a tough choice to make. I guess Ford is the winner in all this since they will have my money either way ;)

I would like to second this list and add the seven speed manual from the Bronco behind the 2.7. I also need slightly better payload (one ton) and towing (8000). On one of our farms we have a F150 2.7. It is our favorite truck of all time. The 10 speed is the first automatic where I get better MPG than I think I would with a manual transmission. You can let the truck coast to a stop. The automatic drops in gears keeping the engine at idle minimizing fuel usage as you slow. The instrument panel tells me I am getting more than 29 mpg every time I drive it. We have hundreds of acres of orchard so a F150 is too wide. We really would like a narrow truck version of the F150.
