The Mustang has gone through many color changes during the years. From its original Wimbledon White to today’s rainbow of color options, there is something for any Mustang enthusiast. For the type of father looking to buy himself a fast, new car, know these best-selling paint colors for Mustangs. These are the current color options for the sixth generation 2018 Mustangs. Newer models may offer different color options than these.
Shadow Black is a rich, dark color that adds some serious depth to your Mustang. Since 1975, black has remained a staple in the vehicle’s history. Interestingly, the first generation of Mustang (1964-1971) offered Raven Black but it wasn’t popular with consumers. Therefore, from 1972 to 1974, black wasn’t even a color option. While its shade changed during its years, black didn’t become popular amongst Mustang owners until 1994 when it became one of the top three colors.
Race Red and Ruby Red
This is an iconic color for the sports car. It’s no surprise, given that a red car is a natural head-turner. Roughly one in five customers purchases a red Mustang. If that weren’t enough, to prove its popularity, Ford has released over 140 different shades of red in the car’s lifetime. For those who want a deeper and not-so-obvious shade of red, another popular choice is Ruby Red. This is a darker crimson that can look simultaneously aggressive and majestic.
Lightning Blue and Kona Blue
Blue is another very popular color. The two shades on the market today are Lightning Blue and Kona Blue. Lightning Blue, like Race Red, offers an obvious blue color to any recent model of Mustang. It’s impossible to miss on the road. Many owners opt for a white stripe across the top to accent the car’s exterior. Kona Blue is similar, but not as intense. It’s a bit darker than Lightning Blue, almost an indigo shade. While it might not pop as much as the Lightning Blue, the Kona Blue is still striking.
White was one of the original colors used in the first generation of Mustangs, so it makes sense that it’s still a sought-after color. A neutral color like Oxford White is a natural color option for a sports car. Not to mention, white is extremely versatile. You can add any color stripe or accessory to your vehicle, and it will only improve your ride’s look.
Magnetic Metallic and Ingot Silver
For those looking for a solid base color, you can’t go wrong with Magnetic Metallic and Ingot Silver. These are approximately a grey and silver, respectively, which are great base colors alone. These don’t need racing stripes or additional color options to improve their aesthetics, because there’s nothing to improve. These are serious colors from the jump.
Triple Yellow and Orange Fury
Last on this list, Triple Yellow and Orange Fury offer intense, bright visuals wherever you drive. Both are commonly neglected Mustang colors, but these are truly standout shades. How often does one see a yellow or orange car? Like many of the other colors on this list, you can add any color stripe to improve these base colors’ appeal.
