Paint suppliers have now received color data for 2021 Ford models and we’ve discovered the list of 2021 Mustang colors that are planned for the expected mid-cycle refresh of the S550.

The list of Mustang colors are listed on Automotive Touchup and show several new colors including, Antimatter Blue Metallic, Yellow Peel, Fighter Jet Gray, Carbonized Gray Metallic and Lucid Red Pearl.

2021 Mustang Refresh Spied!

February 6th, 2020

Our photographers just caught a new camouflaged Mustang prototype that may be our first look at a 2021 Mustang GT refresh!

The latest prototype has the face of the earlier prototype —showing us the general face of the 2021 Mustang. The fascia-mounted light strips have been moved to a higher position on the front bumper, closer to the headlights. The outer air intakes are covered in camouflage, but it’s clear that they have been reshaped.

The prototype pictured here has what appears to be the Mustang GT grille but it is rocking a single-tipped dual exhaust setup, instead of the GT’s quad-tipped set-up. The entire rear is once again, completely covered in camo wrap, and looks to obscure an all-new rear lip spoiler. The headlights and tail-lights have been unchanged, suggesting that the changes won’t extend to the lighting.

A Ford Mach-E engineer just conducted a fascinating Q&A session chock full of revealing behind-the-scenes info, not just about the Mach-E Mustang and how it has impressed and thrilled even the most hardened Ford vehicle test drivers, but also that it is keeping the next-generation internal combustion-engined Mustang S750 program alive while its competitors like the Chevrolet Camaro will soon be discontinued.

The Ford engineer also dished on how the Mach-E targeted performance first, why Ford builds better cars than Tesla, and how the Mustang Mach-E’s performance is so good it even “scares [Ford’s] vehicle test drivers… [who] drive GT350’s on the regular.”
