One of the most common colors on a Mustang, black, makes a return in 2017 with Ford's Shadow Black paint color. This shade of black is perfect for the Mustang enthusiast wanting a dark, sinister look and is a perfect canvas for blacking out your car. It also contrasts well with many colors of wheels to make the customization options endless!
It seems like just about everyone you talk to knows someone who had a white Mustang. The 2017 Mustang oxford white paint code is no different in highlighting every curve of the S550 chassis. While Oxford White has seen it's fair share of Mustangs in the past, the S550 body lines may compliment it the best. The best part of owning a white Mustang is the endless color possibilities for wheels and the perfect contrast when adding blacked out Mustang parts.
Ford's Platinum White was offered only on the 2017 Mustangs as a one year specialty color. Ford has used the color before on some F150s, but never on a Mustang. The Platinum White Vs Oxford White debate can go on for days but from our experience, Platinum tends to be brighter than Oxford. Some say you can see a metal flake in the Platinum in the sunlight which would be attractive to those wanting something a little more custom looking.
One of the brightest colors of the 2017 Mustang lineup, triple yellow, makes a return for the last year of the first body styled S550s. Deeper than your common yellow, triple yellow really accents the curves and body lines of the S550. We have noticed from our personal Triple Yellow, that the yellow really compliments black accent pieces and black wheels.
For those wanting a red Mustang that is not as bright as the Race Red Mustangs, the 2017 Mustang in Ruby Red may be the choice for you. With it's deeper red tones and a hint at a burgundy color, the Ruby Red color is sure to attract those wanting a modern car with a less than loud color scheme. While it does not show the body lines as well as Race Red, the metallic flake in Ruby Red Metallic paint shines amazingly in the sunlight.
Nothing is more classic than a red Mustang. The 2017 Race Red is no exception as the bright red paint really helps make the S550 body lines pop. Some call it aggressive, others call it classical, but either way, a bright red Mustang has to be on your list of Mustangs to own.
One of our favorite blues that has been brought back to life from the classic Mustangs is the original Boss Grabber Blue. This blue took on a bright shade of blue that came back in the S197 body style and made another appearance in the S550 lineup. This blue was a perfect shade for those wanting a Mustang that stood out and really made a scene in the sunlight.
Debuting this year in Ford's new 2017 Mustang lineup was Lightning Blue. Standing out from Kona Blue and Deep Impact Blue, Lightning Blue was a brighter version of each that sort of bridged the gap between Kona and Grabber Blue. Some say this resembled the older Sonic Blue Mustangs which were widely popular in the early 2000 year Mustangs.
A fan favorite, Ingot Silver, will also be returning. Debated as one of the most popular colors of the Mustang, silver has always found a soft spot in most Mustang owner's hearts. The 2017 in Ingot Silver will be a perfect platform for enthusiasts to add black accents to and even add some more colorful additions.
A close relative to Ingot, Magnetic offered a darker shade of silver/grey that appealed to many Mustang owners. As with Kona, this color looked completely different depending on the light source. Going onto the S550, Magnetic is sure to be another huge hit and a rival of Ingot.
