2020 Ford Mustang Gains Grabber Lime Color In Time For St. Patrick’s Day

Ford is bringing back the iconic Grabber Lime color for the 2020 Mustang, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day (March 17).

Inspired by a vintage Mustang color from the 1970s, Grabber Lime is a high-impact (some would call it flashy) green paint that will definitely not go unnoticed on the street — especially when applied to the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500. Ford cheekily calls it “more potent than krypton-ite.”

“It’s 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 is one of two new feature colors available for the 2020 Mustang lineup, the other being Twister Orange. In addition to these striking paintworks, Ford will freshen up the 2020 Mustang color palette with new Iconic Silver and Red Hot Metallic. These colors will be available including for the Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT500 muscle cars.

The facelifted 2020 Ford Mustang lineup arrives this fall with the most important update being the return of the Shelby GT500 as a range-topping model. With more than 700 horsepower from a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine, the 2020 Shelby GT500 is the fastest and most powerful Mustang ever

It’s capable of going from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in about 3.5 seconds and covering the quarter-mile in under 11 seconds. The top speed will be capped at 180 mph (289 km/h), Ford announced yesterday. As for the rest of the Mustang lineup, we should expect minor updates. Rumor has it Ford will add a more powerful 2.3-liter EcoBoost model for 2020.

    The only thing I would change about the new GT500 is the placement of the cobra in the grille… it needs to be off to the left hand side. Otherwise, perfection.

    Have to admit, I kinda like it. It’s just enough in your face and if you’re going to have a car with such outrageous power, why not have it painted to match?

  • Wandering_Spirit

    Very interesting design. It’s evolving well.

    As a non-American, what’s the story behind the word Grabber? No, I’m not talking about Drump’s “Grabber by the ….”!!!
    Don’t they have other colours that start with the word Grabber?

      It was the name of a color that Ford used on the Mustang back in the late 60’s. It was grabber blue back then, used on the shelby mustang, and it was an instant hit with Ford fans, for a while at least. Grabber blue has been used on recent Mustang’s over the past 10 years. I think they want to popularize the grabber name, and used it for old-timers and muscle car fans who would instantly recognize it. I don’t know the origin of the name though, and how Ford came to choose it in the first place.

        lol nvm. I guess grabber green was from the 70’s too. It looked different from the grabber green we see here.

  • SteersUright

    Love the color but I just cant warm up to that terrible looking front fascia. It looks such a mess up there.
