Grabber Lime Ford Mustang is Basically Ecto Cooler on Wheels
In case the copious talk of green-dyed beer around the water cooler on Friday morning wasn’t clue enough, this Sunday marks another St. Patrick’s Day. This year, as in every year before it for thousands and thousands of years, Americans will line the countertops at pubs across the nation in search of Guinness pours, Jameson shots, and a stronger sense of harmony with the 2.8 percent Irish heritage their 23andMe test results turned up. They’ll also be wearing green. So much green. Because Ireland.
Ford is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day as well, revealing a new color for the upcoming 2020 Ford Mustang: Grabber Lime. Inspired by the vivid neon green of Mustangs from the 1970s, Grabber Lime seems likely to replace the Need for Green hue of the 2019 Ford Mustang that was also conveniently announced around St. Patrick’s Day last year — unless Ford wants the 2020 Mustang to be one of the very few vehicles on the market offered in multiple shades of green.

“[Grabber Lime is] lime green on steroids,” said Barb Whalen, Ford color and materials manager. “This color traces back to a Mustang heritage color while bringing it forward with more modern, dynamic pigments and bold new energy.”
Whalen added that bright retro colors are coming back into style with younger consumers in everything from home appliances to clothing because they make a statement. Having a bright green Ford Mustang certainly makes a statement — what that statement is probably depends on who you ask and what their proximity is to a cars and coffee meetup.
But salty haters aside, the 2020 Ford Mustang’s Grabber Lime color looks awfully fun and fitting for the world’s best-selling pony car. Ford will also offer a new Twister Orange color, which was revealed with the Mustang Shelby GT500, across the whole Mustang lineup. New Iconic Silver and Red Hot Metallic hues will be offered for the Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT500.
The 2020 Ford Mustang will be arriving this fall, which means you’ll have it ready to go for avoiding pinches next St. Patrick’s Day.
