Got mine yesterday. I wasn’t sure about the color, but didn’t like how the light bar looks on darker colors. However, I couldn’t be happier with my decision.

I was unsure also. And then when I saw it in person it felt promising but with each passing day I like it more and more.
I like you couldn't be any happier with my decision.

Hope you enjoy your truck. As I've stated before I'm coming out of a 2019 Ram which had a great drive. Really smooth and easy to drive but this truck blows it away

I felt compelled to photographically document the truck's first driveway charge. Really happy with the Avalanche hue and how it drastically changes throughout the day.

Here are some pics on an overcast day after my new window tint was applied. I love the color. It's so close to my other F150 this year that had Space Metallic White. That metallic flake was neat as it really shimmered on a sunny day. I'm glad at least Avalanche was offered. It really stands out.

Looking good! I like the light bar lit but don’t like it on the avalanche when it’s not lit. Curious to see it tinted on this color. I get mine tomorrow hopefully !

happy with the stubby antenna? If so which did you get?
My avalanche is coming in about a month, I just got the built email. I will be tinting the light bar. I think having it blacked out to match the rest of the black trim will be perfect.

I’m thinking of going a super light color to just take away the off white color so it doesn’t clash with the off white (gray) paint. I will say it looks much better in person though. I don’t think it clashes as much in person

Our trucks are nearly identical! I actually have a window tint appointment tomorrow. Looks fantastic, by the way! Maybe it's confirmation bias, but I like the look of XLT 511A w/out body colored handles and mirrors... all the black contrasting against the Avalanche hue stands out in a good way.

100% looks much better with the black contrast. I think pastel colors in general do better without color matched everything. Too much pastel looks like a blob. With the contrast it looks amazing! I have the pro with black bumpers as well which I prefer

Yeah, the tint guy used the word "smoked" I still want light to pass through.

Looking forward to it!! Maybe he can give you a few scraps to stick on and compare! 🤔

We have twins! 😂

At first I didn’t like the black plastic trim. I feel for the price it looks cheap. I’m also coming from 2 Lariats this past year where everything matched. I was detailing the truck yesterday and I’m slowly coming around. I agree, it does have some nice contrast. I would have liked Ford to use a different material, but this kinda texture won’t mark up easily etc like piano black gloss etc.

Here it is under overcast skies. I love how subtle, but futuristic the front end is without screaming “I’m an EV”.

Funny, I think the light bar on the darker colors looks better. It two different shades of white that drive me crazy. I had an Atlas Blue on order, but Ford switched to Avalanche and never changed it. I'm not sure I'm going to buy it. Supposedly it will be built on the 27th of Feb.

It really depends on tax rebates and my trade in more than anything.
