Ford Canada website now lists the Sonic blue as a colour option. Although the colour that shows on the car is the same as the Kona Blue (which is also still listed).

This may be off topic, I am looking for a second family car, I have my eyes set on the Ford Fusion Sport, but none exist with the NAV option locally for 2011, and I wanted Blue Flame,

But when I got the MY2012 Fusion guide, I saw Kona Blue! and it looks so much better on the Mustang/Fiesta/Focus than blue flame.

So on a Fusion, I think it would look good over blue flame.

Unfortunately Ford now lets you build a 2012 Fusion and it lists as "blue flame" again but whats so confusing is no 2012 photos are out and the 2012 build guide is showing the car in a much darker blue hue just like Kona, when I compare it to the 2011 build image.

I got word from Ford that the Kona Blue option that was slated for MY 2012 is now messed up due to the paint pigments from Japan.

So I think that explains the earlier exhausting of Kona Blue on some current models and it now not showing up when building a 2012 Fusion, but ironically you can still build a 2012 Focus with Kona Blue, but...

28 mpg city/38 mpg highway with the 18" wheels and the package but not sure of the suspension change, I doubt it would affect mpg much.

Tried to order Kona Blue Saturday 6/11/11 but told it came up "delete". Switched to black.
They said 6 to 8 weeks for delivery.

Just ordered a Sonic Blue on 6/10, on Materials hold because Sonic Blue isn't in production yet. Hopefully they will start producing it soon.

I have a Kona Blue myself but its hard deciding color options for wheels. Im leaning towards white tarmacs but they're pretty expensive so I'm still deciding on these
