Now we just need orange and green, and that elusive Shelby variant.
The Ford Mustang is celebrating its birthday this week, which is why the American brand decided to showcase the color palette for the seventh-generation model for the first time. More colors will likely be added to the menu in the future, but for now, there are 12 colors.
These colors aren't available across the range. Blue Ember Metallic is limited to the Dark Horse Premium, and it's not free. You must also pay $1,250 for the Dark Horse Appearance Package. This package also adds a Black painted roof, Notorious Blue brake calipers with Grabber Blue logos, and a unique hood graphic.
Ford updated its online configurator so prospective owners can look at different colors, configurations, and interiors, but, unfortunately, you can't slap a set of stripes on the car just yet.
The options for the EcoBoost and GT range include Atlas Blue, Grabber Blue, Vapor Blue, Iconic Silver, Yellow Splash, Carbonized Gray, Dark Matter, Oxford White, Race Red, Rapid Red, and Shadow Black. On the EcoBoost and GT models, all but Rapid Red Metallic Tintcoat ($495) are no-cost options.
Vinyl Racing Stripes cost an additional $475 and are available in Gloss Gray/Semi-Gloss Black, Black with a red accent, and an Opacity Fade Stripe. Basic Hood Stripes in Ebony (black) and Grayscale are free of charge, as are the Black and Grayscale side stripes. On GT models, you can also add a Red vinyl racing stripe.
The 2024 Mustang remains a performance bargain. Ford's Dark Horse may be expensive, but an MSRP of roughly $40,000 for a Mustang GT with a 450-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 and a standard six-speed gearbox is a bargain. Keen drivers still need to add the GT Performance Package for $4,995. Still, it does include a Brembo braking system, heavy-duty front springs, unique chassis tuning, and special tunes for the stability control, EPAS, and ABS systems. Crucially, you also get the electric hand-operated parking brake.
While the color palette is good for now, we can't help but miss some options available for the sixth-generation Mustang. Notable omissions include Cyber Orange and Eruption Green.
The rumored upcoming Shelby models will likely go even wilder with some new paint options, plus old returning favorites like Mischievous Purple, Ford Performance Blue, and Grabber Lime.
