Dark Side Metallic or Sunset? Anyone seen them?

Hello everyone. I just wanted to see if anyone has seen (and can describe) or taken pictures, etc of some sample of the upcoming Dark Side or Sunset colors for 2014? My wife and I are going to possibly put in an order for the 2014 Fusion on Saturday and I am just curious to see what each color may be like. I know that dealers were sent samples 6 or so weeks ago, but my dealer says they haven't seen the colors, so I figured I would give it a shot here. Thanks!

Re: Dark Side Metallic or Sunset? Anyone seen them?

Welcome to the forum, MineralStangGT!

I've only seen a sorta decent photo of Sunset on BON,
think the Dark Side will require in-person impressions more than pix...
(wonder if it's true the 'ColorCrew' originally named it "Cruisin' for a Bruisin'"?)

If/when you find photos/info, hope you'll post it here too

That would be great! I talked to ford marketing today and they described sunset as burnt orange and dark side is a really dark green. I was hoping dark side was going to include some blue to it. Hopefully we can see them soon!

Hopefully I will get something today. I like the idea of the dark green. Maybe something like the green on the Explorer?

thanks to TBirdStangSkyliner @ BON
here's a little 2014 MKT pdf-brochure @ Media.Lincoln.com (single page)
with a small picture that's most likely 'Sunset'



fwiw, imho this color is inappropriate for any current Lincoln...
...might be good on the MKC

Has anyone seen anything new when it comes to the colors? I have not seen anything new, but I heard that two planned colors on the super duty were cancelled and moved to 2015. I wonder if that will happen on the other models that were supposed to get those colors?
