I feel your pain! I originally ordered a MME PE in infinite blue. Then ordered a FE during the Mach Drop in Grabber Blue. Both are still on order with the FE scheduled for production first. I still have a decision to make.

Real-world photos of MMEs in grabber blue look paler/lighter when compared to Ford's pictures in their marketing materials. Ford's roadshow hasn't made it to Atlanta. I really don't know what to expect when I eventually see grabber blue in person.

Both are really nice, each look different in different light or time of day. I see the IB as more mainstream subtle and the GB as more of a less common kinda flashy color. Ive seen the IB in person and it made me second guess my Rapid Red, but no IB for the FE model. If I did it again I would go with the IB but happy with my choice of RR.

This is why they have different colors @Liv. I’d cancel my order and never look at the MME again if my choices were CyberOrange, Grabber Blue or Rapid Red. I actually like the 587 shades of gray and white we have.

And those choices are why we can all be more or less happy with whichever flavor of Mach-e we choose.

btw, welcome aboard. :)
Whereas, I love the Rapid Red. Or the Black. ;)

I would have loved to see Ice Storm #2 that we had on our 2013 Ford Fusion Energi!

that was a nice color. I almost got my 2014 C-Max in this color, but ended up with Candy Blue.

I don't want to sound too picky, but the actual color on the car seems more coppery and not as pink as the demo image, unless it is a lighting issue. Either way, very interesting options we will have if we choose to change our colors.

I was definitely agonizing over colour as I originally put my reservation in before seeing in person. Just this morning I pulled the trigger and took advantage of an available car and switched from a carbon grey to a rapid red. Upgraded to FE as well. I feel a lot happier now... all that’s left is to wait the month out till it’s expected to arrive.

Nice!

Did you facilitate this change with your dealer or directly with the customer who cancelled?

I actually did it separately with two dealers. First I found on my Facebook stream that a local dealer had the FE available, then I Cancelled my original order with one and made the new purchase with the other. I tried to get the dealer to just do a trade amongst dealers but the dealership with the FE had no interest and due to some issues i had with my original dealer i had no concerns changing dealers and they let me out of my deal with no penalty. They expect no issues being able to sell it.

Here’s another story:

I was recently at Target and saw a beautiful current model year Mustang pull in near my parking spot. I walked past it on the way in and smiled. This HAD TO BE Carbonized Gray from the looks of it. Dark and menacing, but definitely not black.

On my way out from Target I noticed that two young ladies were inside of the car. I boldly walked up to their car, wearing a mask, and waved at them to speak with me. They looked startled and confused. I shouted, “Do you remember the name of the color of your Mustang? Is it Carbonized Gray?” The driver smiled (after realizing I meant them no harm) and said “No it’s Magnetic Gray.”

After a quick search online I found that Magnetic gray is at least two shades darker (or more) than Carbonized Gray. WHY did Ford have to change a good thing???:eek:o_O

So still no settled feeling that I will like it when/if I go with it.
My 2015 Fusion and 2019 Escape were both Magnetic, and I absolutely love the color. I have a Carbonized Gray FE being built right now, and I do have to say I'm a little worried that the color is going to look like the Sterling Gray Metallic that was available prior to Magnetic. I wasn't a fan of that color at all, but Rapid Red and Grabber Blue were just too bold for me as the other FE choices available, so I'll 'settle' for my MME as-is. 😂
