My other choice was blue, but my wife and me decided to go with orange because we like to be different, and we felt that blue would be very hard to keep clean considering dirt shows very easy on dark colors. We had to have our car driven from another state because california didn't have one with the options that we wanted (orange paint, panoramic sunroof, chrometech wheels, and cloth interior).
Fusion, I think we have the exact same taste in colors. I wanted a blue one, but the only one the dealer had was one without XM and with the panoramic roof, neither of which I wanted, so I went with orange with the options I wanted. My next car will be blue though, if it is still in style! Hands down the 2 best colors on the G6 are blue and orange!
