yeah we recieved our 2006 color palate today, think all the glory of copper with the shock of electric lime and you're getting close.

But there are a few nice ones too like Black Cherry and Cypress Green that should be real good looking.

Thanks for the heads up on the 2006 colors. Cypress Green sounds dark like a swamp but could be a lighter green with yellow tones...who knowsonly The Shadow knows We'll have to wait and see an actual 2006 Ion sedan in the Greenwood, IN outlet.

My father and I saw a Cranberry Red Ion sedan up close and personal in Beech Grove, IN yesterday. Nice color in person...he liked it and he's partial to blue!

Default Re: 2006 Info

Interesting that in yesterday's mail I received the copy I sent for of the preview brochure for the new Ford Fusion that will be released in 2006. Based on the color chart in that brochure, there will be no Fusion Orange or any other kind of orange on the 06 Ford Fusion.
I have to wonder though why Saturn chose to use the word "fusion" for one of its colors when Ford will be spending millions in advertising dollars to put the idea of the Fusion mid-sized model line in our heads. A subtle reminder perhaps that when the Ford Fusion arrives in fall of 05, Saturn will not have its new mid-sized Aura in production?

Cypress Green is definately a darker color, think Forest Green but a shade or two lighter.

I don't think anyone will confuse the two. One is a car; the other is a color. No one will go to a Saturn retailer looking for a Ford, and no one will go to a Ford dealer looking for an orange Saturn.

I disagree. People like you and me won't confuse the two but if Saturn is to survive it is going to have to attract several hundred thousand new customers over the next five years. Among that group, most people wouldn't confuse one color with one car either but they certainly have some probablity of making a mental association with the word "fusion" and their buying choices in autos. The Ford Fusion will be a major player in the midsized market and will be a competetor for Saturn in the minds of these new customers. In the same way that Dodge used the word "different" prominently in its advertising several years ago (long after Saturn capitalized on the different concept) I have to think (or at least I hope) the GM/Saturn specialists in car war "psy-ops" chose the word on purpose. Research must have shown that names of brands, models, colors etc have to have some meaning to people to justify the millions of corporate advertising and marketing dollars spent on just name recognition, right?

The name "Fusion Orange" will only be printed on the window sticker, brochures, and the display in the showroom. If you ask people what the official name of that orange Saturn over there, they will be clueless. They'll just say orange.

There's navy-blue colored clothing and the clothing brand Old Navy. No one thinks that Old Navy produces all the blue clothing in the world, and no one thinks that you can only get their clothes in blue. Saturn LS. Lincoln LS. Chevy Malibu LS. It's not as confusing as you think.

Ford Fusion and Fusion Orange. Big whoop.
