Thanks, everyone. This is the first new car I have been excited about in a long while (have driven Expeditions for the past 17 years).
@pffam1990 - the color is Burgundy Velvet. I really wanted (New York Jets) Green Gem, but it wasn't offered. I saw Rhapsody Blue online and it looked fantastic, but thankfully I went to see it in person on other models and it is much lighter than the website. Looks like Sapphire Blue on the website (which also isn't offered on the 18). Was going to get black, but saw this color on a MKZ and it looked pretty sharp in the sun - figured it would look nice on a big car, and it does. Wife pushed me to the interior choice (I wanted all ebony). Glad I listened - it really does pop with all of the wood trim in the car. I just hope it wears nicely and gets a nice patina instead of looking dingy.
The vehicle is getting hand controls installed at the moment (I am in a wheelchair) and it was a bit disconcerting, to say the least, when I stopped by to check on progress to see my brand new vehicle in the garage with the entire underside of the steering column taken apart and screws and parts everywhere. Reminded me of the old saying about seeing sausage made. All should be better in a day or two.
