Ford announces throw-back Grabber Lime for 2020 Mustangby Drew Johnson
Grabber Lime is a new twist on an old favorite.
Ford has announced that it's bringing back the vivid hue of Grabber Lime for the 2020 Mustang. The announcement comes appropriately just a few days before the St. Patrick's Day holiday.
Ford says the Grabber Lime that will be available on the 2020 Mustang isn't an exact match to its 1970s counterpart, but it remains a vivid and eye-catching shade of green. Ford describes the 2020 version of Grabber Lime as "lime green on steroids.”
"This color traces back to a Mustang heritage color while bringing it forward with more modern, dynamic pigments and bold new energy,” said Barb Whalen, Ford color and materials manager.
Grabber Lime won't be the only eye-catching new Mustang color for 2020; Ford is also rolling out Twister Orange across the line for the new model year.
"These bright, vibrant retro colors are trending in design - in home furnishings, sportswear and even appliances,” said Whalen. "Aspirational and confident, they are fun, youthful colors that make a statement of how you want the world to see you and who you want to be. And your car is an extension of that.”
Unfortunately, you won't be able to drive your holiday-appropriate Grabber Lime Mustang to any of this year's St. Patrick's Day celebrations. Ford says the 2020 Mustang won't go on sale until this fall.
