The 15 Ford F-150 Colors
As a standard and popular car color, it is not a surprise that each F-150 2021 model (XL, XLT, LARIAT, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited) is available in Agate Black.
Available in all but the King Ranch models, this gray is the darkest option (besides the lead foot option – read below to see what makes it different).
Along with Agate Black, Iconic Silver is another color option that is available in all models (XL, XLT, LARIAT, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited) of 2021 F-150s. Silver certainly makes a bold statement, and you can enjoy it no matter what model your heart decides.
With three white options on the table, you may be asking yourself what the difference is. Oxford White is the stereotypical white as can be hue. It’s bright and stands out. You can choose this color for most models: XL, XLT, LARIAT, and King Ranch. The Platinum and Limited F-150 model aren’t available in this color.
As stated above, this is a lighter shade of blue that has an electric vibe to it. Only half of the models are available in this color. Those are the XL, XLT, and LARIAT. Are you feeling daring? This color will make a statement, no doubt.
Feeling like Lightning McQueen? Then choose either the XL, XLT, or LARIAT F-150 model to pick this vibrant red color. Unfortunately, those set on the King Ranch, Platinum, or Limited model won’t be able to pick this in-your-face red, but that might be okay for some people. Not everyone wants vibrant colors.
As indicated above, this is a darker shade of red that costs a little more. This deep, rich red is available for the XLT, LARIAT, King Ranch, and Platinum F-150 models.
Although labeled Space White, this comes off as more of a very light gray color. This rides the line of white/gray and, given the angle, will probably look white in one direction and gray in another. Out of the six F-150 models, this is available for only the XLT and LARIAT models.
Available in almost all of the models (only excluding the Limited model), Stone Gray greatly resembles the color of stone, so mission accomplished. Again, gray is a nice, appealing color to choose.
Compared to Velocity Blue, Antimatter Blue is the darker option available in the XL, XLT, LARIAT, King Ranch, and Limited F-150 models. Minus the Platinum model, most buyers will have this option available. So if blue is your color, but the velocity was too much, this would be a great choice.
Only available in the XLT, LARIAT, and King Ranch models, Guard is a subdued green color. It’s a little lighter than hunter green, which is a well-known car color. Overall, it’s sleek, pleasing, and a great option for green lovers.
Is brown your thing? Fear not, for the LARIAT, King Ranch, and Platinum F-150 models, Kodiak Brown is an option for you! It’s a nice, dark color that catches the eye.
For the LARIAT, Platinum, and Limited models, people have the option of Smoked Quartz which is the darkest gray option. It almost rides the line of gray/black but is still on the gray scale.
Compared to Oxford White (described above), this is an off-white option. Even though the connotation of “star” makes it seem like it would be the brighter white option, that is not the case. This color is available in the LARIAT, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited F-150 models.
If you’re dead set on Lead Foot being the color you want, then you’re going to have to go with the LARIAT model of the F-150. This is the only option for this color. It’s on the darker side, like the carbonized gray color, but it comes across as matte. If you compare the two pictures, you will see that matte effect.

Where can I find the paint color on my F-150?
In every Ford F-150 model, people can find their color paint code on the driver-side door jamb or door frame. It’s located on the manufacturer’s label. Ultimately, you will have to open your door to locate this, but the color code will be there.
How do you read Ford color codes?
Here is a list of all the color options and their codes for all Ford F-150 2021 models. As seen in the chart, Ford’s color code is usually two digits. So, looking at the chart, space white is A3. Sometimes, you’ll see longer codes, such as the one under Ford codes (the MXXXX codes shown). You’ll see EXT PT: XX on the manufacturing label – this will be the two-digit color code.
What is the chrome package on Ford F-150?
The chrome appearance package on the Ford-150 is a package deal that adds more chrome features to your vehicle. Some come equipped with certain chrome features depending on the model so that the chrome package would include additional chrome features.
For example, the Ford F-150 XL 2021 doesn’t come equipped with any chrome features in the standard model. The chrome appearance package for this model includes the addition of chrome front and rear bumpers. Take note that the XL’s chrome package isn’t compatible with the 3.0L Power Stroke Diesel engine or the heavy-duty payload package.
Another example is the Ford F-150 XLT, which initially comes equipped with chrome front and rear bumpers. With the chrome appearance package, the car would come with chrome exterior door and tailgate handles, two chrome front tow hooks (4×4), chrome single exhaust tip, chrome steps bars, and two-bar style grille with chrome surrounded by black accents.
Check out this Appearance Guide from Ford to read about the other models and what the chrome appearance package adds on. It shows you what the standard model features and what features the chrome package would give each model.
What is Ford Magnetic color?
Ford magnetic color doesn’t concern those looking into an F-150. This color has been discontinued from F-150 models but is still available for Ford F-650 and F-750 models. In previous years, magnetic gray (color code: FM6E (WHA))was available for F-150s, but this year, as previously shown, a few different shades of gray are available to choose from.
So, while the magnetic color isn’t an option this time around, you can choose from Carbonized Gray, Stone Gray, Smoked Quartz, and Lead Foot. Any one of these is a nice gray color, from lighter shades to darker.
What are F-150 interior colors?
In total, there are five interior color options available for the F-150s. They are:
- Medium Dark Slate
- Baja Tan
- Admiral Blue
Ultimately, if you decide to build your own car, you can pair what interior you would like with other colors. It is a good rule of thumb to match the exterior and interior colors for a cohesive look. For example, pairing the Agate Black exterior with the Medium Dark Slate interior is a classic move or the Kodiak Brown exterior with the Java leather interior. On the other hand, white is more versatile.
All in all, it’s easy to see that some pairings are better than others, so that helps with decisions.
Enjoy Your Color!
Now that you know all the color options and what model is available for each, good luck choosing the one for you! If you’re someone who keeps cars for a while, color choice is a big deal, so use this knowledge and enjoy your truck in the color for you!
