One company seems to have revealed the exterior color palette for the 2021 Ford F-150. Whoops.
Believe it or not, but a brand new Ford F-150 pickup truck is reportedly right around the corner. The current thirteenth-generation design is hardly what we'd call stale, having just launched for the 2015 model year, but such is life for Ford's best-selling model line: when you represent such an important constituent of Ford's North American earnings, you have to stay competitive at all costs.
Now, one site may have revealed the entire color palette for the all-new fourteenth-generation F-150 online, giving us a sneak peek at all the shiny, sultry paint hues Ford will offer when the redesign launches later this year.
A total of 15 colors are on the palette, according to the list on Automotive Touchup via the forum f150gen14 including some very familiar names like Oxford White and Race Red, along with a few colors we've never heard of: Antimatter Blue Metallic, anyone? Not all colors will be available on all trims, of course, so bear in mind that many of these paint hues will be restricted to higher-tier models.
Here is the full list:
-Antimatter Blue Metallic
-Carbonized Gray Metallic (as seen on the Mustang Mach-E)
-Space White Pearl
-Star White Pearl
-Kodiak Brown Metallic
-Stone Gray Metallic
-Lucid Red Pearl
-Smoked Quartz Metallic
-Velocity Blue Metallic
-Lead Foot Gray
-Iconic Silver Metallic
-Agate Black Metallic
Sources close to the brand suggest that the all-new, 2021 Ford F-150 will enter production this July, with shipments starting around September, but we can't substantiate that.
In fact, very little is known about the fourteenth-generation Ford F-150, apart from the fact that a hybrid will be available from early on in the new truck's lifecycle, and a battery-electric version will follow, roughly a year after launch. As with the thirteenth-generation light-duty pickup, the body should make extensive use of aluminum for lightweighting purposes, and the overall design language will likely be more evolutionary than revolutionary.
Stay tuned for more as the all-new Ford F-150 begins to take shape.
