During the early 1990s, Ford was at a significant crossroad amongst many models, including the legendary Mustang. They knew quickly; it would be a pivotal time to make the correct responses to bring the Mustang forward in terms of style, performance, handling, and design. During the previous generation stallion, it went through a lot of changes through its 13-year run in terms of design. Launched with the initiative to give the Mustang faithful a more modern and technologically advanced during its time, the SN95 Mustang took lessons directly learned from the last year of the 1993 Fox Body, Cobra, and Cobra R.

As every Mustang from each generation has fantastic style, design, and performance, it can’t be anything without its diversity of color choices. For instance, take the 1965 Shelby GT350 and GT350R, it is legendary for its Wimbledon White paint job that has stayed relevant through the tests of time. Mustang enthusiasts are a hard crowd to please, so each generation, Ford goes to extreme lengths to deliver on new colors and choices to let individuals express their personalities.

Upon initial launch of the SN95 Mustang, fans everywhere were very excited about the all-new design that steered in a new direction from the longest-running generation to date in the Fox Body Mustang. The new pony featured a more elegant silhouette of curvy lines, broader rear quarters, and taillights reminiscent of the original American pony car during the 1960s. Once more, the fastback profile was back again, paying tribute to the 1965-1973 Mustang models. Pushing forward in technology and sophistication, Ford knew they had to continue the success of the 1993 Cobra and Cobra R, which started a twenty-year reign of Mustang performance that continues today.

Just as every Mustang has delivered design language of fast, fun, and freedom, the SN95 continued this legacy of performance and engineering by offering a various amount of color to further enhance beauty and design of what the Mustang has to offer. During the first two years, Ford introduced the latest additions to the SVT lineup in the Cobra and Cobra R just as they did in 1993 when SVT was founded inside of Ford Motor Company. Taking lessons learned from the infamous 93 Cobra, Mustang engineers and designers knew it would be good to have colors such as Canary Yellow, Vibrant Red, and Crystal White invigorate the Mustang faithful. All of these colors helped push forward the design and taste of what the new Mustang could be.

Below you will find a comprehensive list and detailed information on all of the colors throughout the first four years of the SN95 Mustang.

Halfway through the fourth-generation Mustang, engineers and designers decided it would give the Mustang a complete facelift to the already successful SN95 Mustang. In 1999, Ford unveiled the refreshed Mustang to enthusiasts nationwide. Known today as the “New Edge” Mustang, this was a completely revolutionary design the likes of which Mustang faithful had never seen before. Deriving from the SN95, the New Edge uses the same chassis components and systems but with more modern technology and even more exceptional performance than seen in previous years. Take the 2000 Cobra R; this was the most advanced Mustang ever built to date. Using technologies such as racecar-like aerodynamics, independent rear suspension, and an incredible performance 5.4L DOHC (Dual Overhead Camshaft) 5.4L V8, it truly showed what Ford was capable of doing.

To culminate this achievement, Mustang designers would introduce several signature colors to enhance the form and function of what was already a fantastic step forward from Ford design. Some of these colors, such as Oxford White, Competition Orange, Screaming Yellow, and Mysti-Chrome are just some of the colors the New Edge Mustang paid homage to past models, which set the trends forward all Mustangs to come. Whether you’re looking to do a color change, needing to fix rock chips on your bumper cover, or in search of the perfect color for your New Edge, please take a look at our color chart below.
