Does anyone have any thoughts about the change of blue offering from 2016 to 2017?

I'm hoping they haven't turned the blue offering into something dull... understated is good, but not dull.

Here's the 2017 "Lighning Blue"...


... and here's the 2016 "Deep Impact Blue":


Here's the 2016 blue in real life:

Starting to think about getting deep impact blue with a matte wrap. With some black wheels it will look even better :D

Too much for me. Not buying this and then spending $2000 to have a matte film applied. Just my commuter so however it comes will be good enough for me.

It's not a look for everyone but what it will do for me is make the Fusion look more sporty than it is currently. Plus I plan to lower it and look into exterior aero modifications. It's all visualized in my head for them moment.

If the rendering is somewhat accurate, then I would prefer the Lightning Blue because of its darker hue. Just has a more mature look to it.

yeah it doesn't have that fluorescent tone to it that the other one does plus i'll want to do away with the chrome, replacing it with black trim. and black trim on lightning blue looks far better.

The lightning blue looks nothing like the photo. I just had an SE come in in that color, I think it looks better than the kona blue which is darker. I'm going to order one for the lot to replace the ruby red that I bought.

I just ordered a Mustang. Was having doubts on what color to choose. When I went to a local dealer just a few weeks ago (for the 4th time), they had 2 stangs in lightning blue, a fastback and a convertible. Both still having all stickers. on them.

The lightning blue looks great i think. This is also the color I choose for the obne I ordered ;)
