Dark Side color?

Hi all:

Today I got my first look at my 2014 XLT. I ordered Dark Side Metallic on a total flyer after seeing the 2014 colors posted on the Ford site in early June. On the web site it looked to be a midnight blue, with maybe a hint of dark green.

Well, I saw it on the lot, parked next to a 2014 Explorer LTD in Tuxedo black, and for the life of me, they looked exactly the same. I could not tell the difference.

Anyone else out there with Dark Side Metallic?

(I am not disappointed with the dark color, just wished it looked a little more dark blue)

Was it sunny? I know the tux black really comes out in the light... Maybe dark side is like that too?

Dark Side color?

Saw the car again today in bright sunlight. To me Dark Side Metallic is black with hints of blue and green in the metallic finish.

Thought maybe the car rolled down the line with the wrong paint -- but not so!

Looking forward to driving it!
