I had a 1999 Ranger in Autumn Orange. That was outstanding.
Came here for this. My dad had a 1998 Eddie Bauer Explorer in Autumn Orange. One of the many cars of my childhood! I always thought it looked different in a good way.

I think Ford changed the name of this color to Bright Amber after a couple of years and then after a short time just dropped it, never to return. Pity as it was a nice color.

Mine was a loaded XLT that I ordered. It was trimmed in gray but I always wished it was trimmed in black. That truck was one of the most comfortable seats I have had, but with the HDPP unless it had about 1000lbs in it, it drove terrible.

my wife needs a new car and she likes the Lexus NX hybrid. They have an orange that is outstanding so I will probably go that route.

The left is '22 Rapid Red and right is Ruby. Not sure I can tell them apart.. but I like them both better than the brighter '23 Red.. then again maybe they are just renaming the color.

my wife had a fusion in ruby red in a ford fusion, liked it better than the rapid red, but they are close.

2017 Ruby Red... I think a little less orange than the current "red" and I think easier on the eye. I like the red $$ paints.. I think you get an extra mil or two of paint and it lasts longer....

Agree, a little less orange than the rapid red.

Lots of good ones. Kodiak Brown, Guard and Blue Jeans get my votes. Loved those colors. I do miss Toreador Red from the 90s too, though Hot Pepper is pretty damn close.
