2014 Mustang "Green Envy" and "Storm Gray" ?

The search dealer inventory page from ford.com lets you filter on color. Two of the choices are Green envy (GHIG) and storm gray (sterling gray)

I guess they slipped through marketing QC

Those are Ford's internal designations for the colors.
My Grabber Orange 07 was called Valencia.
Not really sure why they do that though.

It's a marketing ploy they just figured Grabber Orange sounds better than Valencia. Just like Gotta Have It Green is Green Envy makes no sense.

How is it a marketing ploy to allow you to search for a vehicle by an unpublicized alias for an "official" color name?

Go into your Ford dealer and tell them you want a storm grey mustang. You will likely get a blank stare.

Well, they did use The Features in the 2013 commercial, granted it worked.

willing to bet green envy was the original name but dodge beat them to it with introducing "green with envy" as a color option.
