Blue is the color of the year so we are seeing multiple variations from extreme cobalts like Rhapsody Blue to Gray Blues. Gray, Whites, and Blues are generally the color scheme of choice right now. I wish Ford and Lincoln...like the Europeans, offered more variations of black and dark grays or cleaner whites. Generally speaking Ford's color selection in the US is extremely basic with some occasionally garish colors that make no sense, especially in the beige and gold families.

Lincoln definitely needs to work on its color selections, I just wish they'd hire the color designers from Audi, BMW, or Mercedes.

Ford has a Blue Interior color? In what vehicle?
I was in the new local BMW showroom, and they have some great blues out.

Current Vehicles:
2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Lightning Blue | Black Top | Black Interior

I like green exteriors but mostly darker greens lighter greens look silly on most cars. "Gotta have it green" was one exception that I loved!

As for interiors I don't think I have ever seen a green interior I liked for the most part they are way too gaudy. I think they would work better as a two town like a green and black.

The green has been in marketing for at least 10 years now, I don't think it actually reflects current consumer product trends and certainly not in cars.

The 1996 Ford Taurus was famous for it's huge selection of interior colors like Purple, Blue, Green, Maroon, and the standards. Lincoln recently resurrected Blue and Burgundy in Continental and Navigator which is striking but ultimately very retro which suits Lincoln's vintage luxury style which they are gravitating back to.

Thanks for the Pantone link, Nihar those are interesting BUT mainly good for a laugh imho
@Assimilator ...agree, even in clothing imho it's more for 'fashion-victims'
( anyone else remember the Audrey Hepburn/Fred Astaire film, "Funny Face"? )
"ColorsOfTheYear": 2016--2011
sure explains all the odd cars&cuvs I've been seeing ... Not
well, maybe except for Lincoln's [BL]-The-Muse and Jade Green/Gray...

Re: Ford Colors: What Do You Like/ Not Like/ What Do You Want to See in the Future?

Yes, that is the Nocciola (brown) from Ford's Vignale Mondeo in Europe. I really like it. I wish they brought that color over here for the new Fusion Platinum. They could use a brown color. Even "Caribou" would look good on the Fusion Platinum.
