My 05 GTO had a 6 speed manual transmission but still had the dead pedal. That was a very nice feature. My FFE is missing that and it bothers me sometimes....just would be a nice thing to have. Almost looks like I can see something in the photos.....
pretty sure my 95 GT - which I bought as a stick without knowing how to drive a stick, and learned on it because the 4 speed automatic was... not good... did as well.

I had the wonderful advantage of growing up in the Midwest and driving a 49 Ford pickup --- stick on the floor out to the farm fields at 12 years old.

Ok I'll provide a dissenting opinion LOL:

A couple of observations: The blue isn't deep enough gives it a "washed out" look to me (not the picture just the color), 2nd not enough contrasting colors (which adds to the washed out look) front end needs more black and the wheel lip moldings could be black.

Other than that its purdy LOL
I do agree that a slightly deeper blue, even a solid primary blue would be more to my liking than Grabber Blue, but Grabber Blue is the option they chose for historical reasons.

I agree, though, that the contrast of the black wheel lip molding is more striking than the body color.

If I had my choices, would I have made a few edits to the First Edition choices? Yes. I'm still very happy with the First Edition -- and that Grabber Blue really will stand out in the driveway!

Some quick observations from second pic (driver seat view):
* AM/FM/SiriusXM
* 3.7 mi/kWh
* 93% Soc, 239 mi remain (So just under 257 mi range. Ford's estimated EPA for FE is 270)
* FE has extended range (98.8 kWh prior to new nbrs w/ buffering). Using above nbrs yields about an approx BP size of 69 kWh. (Perhaps he did some jack rabbit starts?)
* Anybody else see anything noteworthy?
Those numbers just don't add up. Says it's a 4X on the side picture, so 88 kWh usable x 3.7 = 326 miles. 93% of that is 303. But it's showing only 239 left.

That 3.7 has to be for just a short trip segment, not overall.

Showing 3.7 with zero miles traveled. That's why I asked him to take a picture of the efficiency before he exited.

those pictures are giving me serious concerns about going with the red... I may have picked the wrong color... 🤔
Not me. I think the red looks great in every light. To me the grabber blue only looks good in the shade/low light. Looks too baby blue to me in sunlight. Plus it's not metallic, which I really prefer over flat.

But it's all about personal preference. I can see how some love it.

Grabber Blue is listed as metallic, but it's clearly not as heavily metallic as Rapid Red.

Further confirms that the only way I'm buying a Mach-E is in Grabber. I wouldn't be happy with it in any other color - definitely not the one I ordered. I'm really hoping my MachDrop thing works out.

Be careful not to put too much stock into the efficiency numbers. Test drive and efficient driving dont mix.
If I had thing for the weekend you can bet there would be some irresponsible driving in store. :)

That's why I made the comment yesterday in another section that this is not the demo you want to buy.
