2021 Explorer Platinum
I traded in my 2012 Limited yesterday for the 2016 Platinum & I've noticed something weird with one of the ambient lighting colors. The version that should be royal blue seems almost purple (but it is not as purple as the actual purple option). I'm including pics of the royal blue in the cupholders (go Razorbacks!) & the corresponding Ambient Lighting screen along with the same for the medium blue. Anyone else with a 2016 have this?

And my apologies if I didn't do the pictures correctly.

Mine does that too on my Limited explorer. I thought it was weird too but never really thought much of it. I just set it to the blue that looked better in the cup holders
 






Thanks, at least I know it's not something wrong with mine. I wonder if the lights can be replaced.

I highly doubt it - would lost some controllability and I can't imagine it being cost effective
 






What do you do if one burns out? Or is that highly unlikely with LEDs
 






They are LED's. So they will probably last a long time.
