Retro-Inspired Grabber Lime Green Is Back for the Ford Mustang

As a person of Irish descent, I’m here to tell you that you shouldn’t care about Ford releasing a new green for the Mustang in mid-March because it is coming out “just in time” for St. Patrick’s Day—as if it weren’t planned months in advanced. I’m here to tell you you should care, because green cars are good, and they’re having a bit of a resurgence right now.


And this is a very good green. Ford calls it Grabber Lime and it’s based on a shade from the 1970s, though it has been updated for our modern tastes. This is an eye-catching shade to go across the whole lineup, especially when the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is wearing it. At least you’ll be able to creep by at 180 mph in style.

Apparently Ford is also releasing another vintage-inspired color, Twister Orange, which Ford wisely decided would not be great to release just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. No need to create an incident with a car color.
