Do you have the center dash monitor? If you do there is an adjustment for ambient lighting. You can change color and brightness.....my wife and I fight over blue or red...

Finally had some time at night to adjust this:
On the main screen at bottom to the right of the home symbol is the settings (gear symbol) then:

then ambient lighting, then a screen showing all the colors, select color you want from the 8-10 choices then you can slide the bar at top of screen to the briteness level you want. I choose the red as that seems the best color for preserving night vision and the car is Ruby red.

You have to adjust them through the settings in the newer models??? That sucks, there's buttons for it on my 2010

Is this feature available in the 2014's?

I have an SEL AWD and I can't seem to find this feature.

Yes, but it may be an option on your trim level.

My '14 Limited has the ambient lighting feature. You access it through MyFordTouch under Settings->Vehicle

I thought the same thing, but I've kept it in blue since buying the car and haven't touched it since
