Within the last decade, Ford has brought the F-150 to the forefront of technology, power, towing, and sophistication among all half-ton pickups. Each model gives enthusiasts a wide range of options to fit their lifestyle, such as engine options, including the EcoBoost and Coyote, as well as a host of technological advances. This innovation couldn’t be more accurate than when the F-150 Raptor was launched back in 2010. It was the first of its kind in the marketplace to offer Baja trophy truck capability without sacrificing the proper use of a daily driven truck. Since then, the F-150 has even further surged to being the best overall half-ton pickup amongst its Chevrolet and Ram counterparts!

Like the Mustang, an F-150 color is always a considerable part of the buying process for every potential buyer. During the two generations between 2011-2020, there have been a fantastic amount of color options to every trim level and model. This guide will show you everything you need to know to pick the right color for your next F-150 or if you just need to know the correct paint code to fix those annoying rock chips.

2015-2017 F-150 Paint Colors

If you talk to any Ford enthusiast, they will tell you that 2015 was one of the most significant years in modern Ford history. Both the F-150 and Mustang would receive a completely new design to enter the storied history of both lineups. For the first time in the forty-plus years of the F150, it would receive a military-grade aluminum-alloy body instead of an all-steel body. With a completely new design, larger overall footprint, and modern styling, this generation of F-150 is the most technologically advanced Ford truck to date!

To aid in all of this modern sophistication and brute muscle, Ford designers thought it would be a great idea to span the color pallette much further than previous years. Colors like Avalanche Gray on the 2017 Raptor which looks like the USS Missouri is coming at you or how Ruby Red speaks of a timeless color with class and sophistication. Ford didn't just elevate the F-150 to the best truck in the marketplace, it launched into a class of luxury and elegance!

2018-2020 F-150 Colors

Coming into the 2018 model year, Ford was looking to take the F-150 up a notch to continue its legacy of being the best selling half-ton pickup in the automotive industry. Reaching its halfway point within the current generation, Ford engineers needed to maintain strides they had made in the previous three years to keep the F150 on top of its competition. F-150 engineers had a clear mission to keep this going, by introducing a thoroughly revised front fascia, a plethora of front grille options, all-new colors, SYNC 3, adding the Limited model back in the lineup, and updating drivetrain options, this helped the F-150 remain the most popular truck in America!

One of the biggest benefactors to helping this trend continue, Ford designers widened the color palette even further than in previous years. Below you will find every color offered between the 2018-2020 model years.
