They are substituting these colors with the NEW 2016 colors that are going to the Transit and other Ford products.

2015 Color NEW 2016 Color

Sterling Grey.... Magnetic
Tuxedo Black ..... Shadow Black
Vermillion Red...... Race Red
Pueblo Gold ...... Caribou

Differences????? Magnetic has more of a Grey/Greenish tint, popular on the 2015 Mustang
Shadow Black looks to be lighter as it has more metallic in the paint
Race Red has a slight red tint, popular on Mustang
Caribou is a brownish-tan, popular on the F-150 Series

Thanks for the info, I just discovered the magnetic metallic online a couple hours ago and texted the sales person to change to that color.

I looked at the Magnetic color on 2015 Ford F-150 pickups. It is darker than Sterling Grey. The F-150 had both Sterling Grey and Magnetic as choices. Somewhere I read that Magnetic Metallic would be an additional no extra cost choice on the Transit. Did that change?

I preferred the lighter Sterling Grey and was willing to pay the $150 extra cost to get the lighter grey.

Height adjustment alone makes it worthwhile to have.

Yup.

I use it for work and we have a few guys that all share one, from taller guys to shorter, they all have no problem getting properly seated for their height. Great investment.

Ditto to all. On long trips, being able to adjust the seat in so many ways is especially helpful for driver comfort, alertness and so forth.

Anyone who finds the motorized seat "totally useless" has multiple problems IMO, chief among them over-dramatization . . . followed by a general grumpiness . . .

A great investment!

2015 XLT 150 Wagon, 3.5EB/3.31LS, 130" WB, low roof, 8-passenger, full trailer tow incl. brake controller, ordered 12/14, delivered 4/20.

so I think its finally done, The power seats are still available with the premium package anyway, you cant get led cargo lights, the backup camera is now standard or is with my options at least, map lights are standard but that's with medium roof height. The magnetic metallic is still an extra 150 but sterling is gone. the base went up around 700 dollars
2016 medium roof rwb 3.75 ls, premium, alloys,3.5, short heated power blinker mirrors, magnetic metallic, bu sensor, nav/myfordtouch, side running board, window defroster, I think that just about covers it.

I might have preferred the sterling to the magnetic but im fine with it so long as that giant black rubber cladding is masked by a darker color surrounding it. not a fan of that would much rather it be body color, reminds me of a geo tracker or a pontiac aztec.
