Assigned order code R3, Burgundy Velvet is one of two metallic tinted clearcoat color options for the 2020 Expedition. It’s worth noting that the hue is one of the second-most expensive exterior color options for the new vehicle, and is one of six total metallic colors available.

    I ordered a Bronco Base 4 door 2022, but one web site says my rapid red tint clearcoat will not be offered for 2022. So I emailed my salesman to change to Burgundy Velvet Tricoat. Original metalic was $295 , but the Lincoln site says $395. Well I had two Expeditions and they use more paint that Bronco. Also have Explorer with aluminum hood issue, Ford refused to respray.

    Question Will Burgundy Velvet Tricoat be offered on 2022 Base Bronco?
