2021 Ford F-150 and 2021 Ford Bronco Will Share Some Paint Colors

Ford announced some new colors for upcoming 14th generation F-150 while also discontinuing some popular paint choices. 2021 Ford Bronco will share a few of those color palettes with F-150 while also getting some of its own unique color choices.

I reported earlier this week, some exciting news regarding the 2021 Ford F-150 and the introduction of some new colors. With that came also the discontinuation of some other color choices.

When I posted the story on several forums, the color most enthusiasts seem to be disappointed about being eliminated was Magma Red. This really dark (almost black) red/maroon blend seemed to have a loyal following. A few fans on Reddit even posted RIP Magma Red. It’s always interesting to me to see what inspires someone to love a vehicle.

While I like certain paint colors, it’s not make or break for me. But hey, when you’re dropping north of $50,000 for a new truck, you should be able to get it in the color you want.

Now, thanks to my friends at the website f150gen14.com they revealed that not only will the 2021 Ford F-150 get new colors, but they also showcased some of the new colors available for the 2021 Ford Bronco. In fact, the Bronco will share a couple of the palettes with the F-150.

Color choices for 2021 Ford Bronco
According to f150gen14, and unconfirmed from Ford, the 2021 Bronco will have 10 color palettes, including five that will also be available on the 2021 F-150. It's unknown if these 10 colors will be the same for both the Bronco and the Bronco Sport. The five common with the F-150 include: Antimatter Blue Metallic, Carbonized Gray Metallic, Oxford White, Race Red and Lucid Red Pearl.

Bronco-specific colors appear to be Cyber Orange Pearl, Fighter Jet Gray, Area 51, Absolute Black and Iconic Silver Metallic.

Here’s the complete list of color options for the 2021 Ford Bronco:

  • Antimatter Blue Metallic
  • Cyber Orange Pearl
  • Fighter Jet Gray
  • Carbonized Gray Metallic
  • Oxford White
  • Race Red
  • Lucid Red Pearl
  • Area 51
  • Absolute Black
  • Iconic Silver Metallic

I like the idea of the Bronco and the Bronco Sport having some unique colors for this brand. I like the Cyber Orange Pearl from the swatches I saw, but Area 51 is cool too. I suspect Area 51 will be a very popular color choice for the Bronco. I also was hoping that the Kodiak Brown from the F-150 would be available for the Bronco as I think Earth tones work well with the vibe of the Bronco. Also, there’s only one shade of white for the Bronco and we probably have OJ Simpson to thank for that.

Color choices for 2021 Ford F-150
Other than discontinuing Magma Red, some F-150 enthusiasts expressed concern about Ford discontinuing Blue Jeans. That was one of my favorite color choices for the F-150 as I like blues in general on vehicles but Blue Jeans was a pretty, vibrant color that looked great on the 13th Generation F-150.

Other comments from readers expressed joy for the continuation of Lead Foot Gray. This dark gray has a great look and an even cooler name. As I mentioned with the Bronco, Kodiak Brown Metallic on the F-150 will be an interesting choice. Likely it won’t be overly popular, but might develop a niche following.

Fans who will miss Magma Red might enjoy the darkish Lucid Red Pearl. It’s not quite as dark as Magma Red, but it’s not as vibrant and cliché red as Race Red either. Or, those Magma fans may turn to the dark, almost black, of Antimatter Blue Metallic.

Be sure to check out the story wrote that indicates that production of the 2021 Ford F-150 will likely not be interrupted because of the Corona virus. We do know that reveals of the Bronco have been delayed due to the corona virus however. And we are growing very antsy to see the iconic Bronco already.

Thanks to f150gen14.com for the color palettes and the sneak peak photo of the 2021 F-150.

Bummed I don't see Silver Spruce. But I'm likely the only one. Every truck I've owned has been gray. I was going to shake it up.
There are plenty of gray/silver options though.
if you like gray you are happy, I like green as my most favorite and then blue especially dark green, and if guard is what I think it is a gray green and it looks washed out, the only blue is antimatter blue that may be ok.. ..like I said if you like gray you would be in tall cotton.
LOL. Yeah, the blue is rather harsh. And no, I am sick of gray. I liked the Silver Spruce, which was a green/silver so maybe guard will work, I'll wait and see, but I like lighter colored trucks because I don't buy them to wash them and I can get away with dust longer on the lighter. Maybe I can get one with paint splatter, like the circa 1960's kitchen linoleum.
I'm a big fan of blue!
