Looks like all Raptors have the satin black like the R. Ford finally listened to the people. Never understood the grey especially with certain colors.

I had a 2019 and got used to it but never loved it. I agree… like the black on the 24 much better. Old was red so it worked… My 24 is white… so I’d have changed if it weren’t black.

I personally prefer the gray. Black has been beaten to death. I thought it was cool when my 2008 FJ Trails Teams had the blackout package. It was different from most cars and trucks I’d see everyday. Then some years later, I started noticing the blackout (especially wheels) on damn near everything. It was cool while it lasted.

I find it funny when people say black is beaten to death.
Black has been used on everything since the Model A. It looks good when combined with any color.
Being different for the sake of being different is ridiculous. I'd rather stick with what looks the best.

Just got a 24 and I love the new black. It's not glossy and it's not matte. People have commented it looks like it's metallic but it's just the way the texture reflects light to me. I'l see about doing a quick video under the sun at some point.

It’s absolutely metallic, and even has little blue flakes in it.

I picked my ‘24 up and it does have a metallic flake in it, interesting they chose that kind of paint. The back is way better vs the gray and that goes for interior as well.

I agree. I like to stick with what looks best too! Team Gray. See, I can be objective, too and not just for the sake of being different.
