What does "Kona Blue" and "Too Good to Be Blue" look like?

Recommended Posts

...Now should I go with 301 or 302 package? Pano roof or roof rails?

I've seen the roof rails and for the life of me I can't see what they will be good for? They seem to be made of plastic and are slotted on the outside edges and don't appear to lend themselves to cross bars. Maybe I am missing something, but if not, I will need to go to aftermarket for a roof rack that will fit my needs.

I think the cross bars may be purchased separately. In that case it might be handy for mouting a canoe/kayak. Too bad the Pano Roof doesn't come with the Titanium in Canada.

 

It's very easy to option oneself out of my ideal price range.

They're only rated for 100 lbs. and should work fine for anything less than that.

From Ford's vehicle configurator:

 

Too Good To Be Blue:

 

Can you send a link to the configurator? It is still showing 2015s for me. I even checked ford.ca

Sad day today at the LA Auto Show. I was talking to a Ford representative if they had any samples or idea of what Too Good To Be Blue color is going to look like.

 

His response: "That's not a color offered by Ford"

 

I just walked away. ?

Don`t know if it would be related (at least shouldn't be), my 2011 MKX is Kona Blue, basically a dark blue or Navy blue. The problem is its one of the weakest paints I've encountered. Don't know if that is correct term to use, but it is easily scratched. And any ding by any other car (door) will always cause my car to scratch & the blue color to transfer to the other car.

I'm really liking that color. Not sure what the wife thinks yet - it will be her vehicle.

It is "Too Good to be Blue", because it actually looks far more Green than I expected...

I do think there is a little green in it, but it looks more like a grayish blue in person.

There seems to be a bug with the website right now that is showing both Blues different when you choose certain trims.

 

If you're checking out the colors, go with the base model first, then add your options.

I just got this off the configure site and am hoping it is not really "this green".

I saw the color on a new Lincoln, "Allure," and didn't notice any green; to me, it was a grayish-blue. Very pretty!

I took a trip to a nearby Lincoln dealership to get eyes on Allure Blue. This color looks more like a steel blue or blue gray. It is a nice color but its not what I expected. Although, it may look unusual on an Edge Sport which would make it one of those rare colors in a couple years. I don't think Ford will sell many Edges in this color. I think Kona Blue would be a better choice. Also, the Lincoln can be ordered in Allure Blue with Terracotta leather which looks great. Too bad Ford doesn't offer Too Good To Be Blue with Cognac. But then, maybe Ford doesn't to take away from Lincoln sales if customers understand the MKX is nothing more than a luxurious Edge.

I don't know how many of you have seen Lithium Gray on the new F150, but this color would look great on the 2016 Edge Sport with Cognac interior. Edge enthusiast should call Ford and maybe they would offer up this combo in the Sport.

Did a quick little mock-up of what a 2016 Sport in TGTBB and BronzeFire with the 21" wheels would look like...
