That Grabber Blue is not the same as the flat Grabber Blue that we are used to up to now. The color chart indicates that it is a metallic, which means it is the new Grabber Blue that was introduced on the Mach-E.
the grabber blue from 12/13 whatever that was is metallic. It’s not as flaky metallic as the Mach but metallic it is.

Oil Slick is going to be a pearl paint according to this site:

https://www.automotivetouchup.com/touch-up-paint/ford/2022/all-models/

I doubt it will be a color flip, as it is indicated with only one * on the Ford page, which represents a low option price. Color flip would be a ***** high option price.
I ordered a spray can and gloss to do some test pieces. Hopefully that will at least give a general idea of how it will look in person. I’ll post some pics after I get it.

I never looked at a 12 or 13 up close, but my 17 is not metallic at all.

If this color list is legit, it's a whole lot more interesting than the current one. Hello, Atlas Blue.

I’m in for oil slick blue or dark matter gray. Cool colors!!!
+1 for dark matter grey!

I highly doubt i'll ever buy another new Mustang, but I like the thought of changing the colour in 20+ years when it needs some tlc

Oil Slick Blue? From Facebook? Yeah, I don't know about this.
i’m guessing Exxon Valdez blue-purple was already taken?

Seems like Marketing was asleep during this choice selection….

I have atlas blue on my explorer ST and it is a beautiful color when clean and the sun is shining on it, darker than velocity blue, but not to dark. Not as dark as the dark blue pearl that I had on my 07 f150. Here are a few pic in various lighting conditions so you can get an idea.
