Ford, your colors are boring.

Great engine, sweeet looking updates, nice interior updates, horrible colors.
It's always the same deal.
Aside from the usual reds, blacks and whites, everything else is so predictable.
Ocasionally, Ford stepped out with a few sweet colors like Sonic Blue, Island blue, Amber and even Violet. How about something less predictable than what's on the table now?
Same old boring Earth tones.
Right now, I think the only color that is somewhat different is the Golden Bronze, but it looks like beer puke, and it's so close to the KR colors that it's just not anything to get excited about.

Try dipping into the Mustang color group for this truck before you commit to your brocures....

I agree with you George. But what these manufactures do is look at what the general public wants. If an off the wall color isn't wanted by a large population then they will not invest the money in it.

I understand that, but this is my 4th Super Duty order, and the colors have been basically the same thing, or a slight variation of the same boring old thing for the past 13 years.
Give me ANYTHING other than the Royal Red, which is basically the same thing as Dark Toreador Red. The green has been the same pale color, and the Golden Bronze is basically the same color as Canyon Copper that has been WORN to death with the KR models.
Silver, black and white are a staple, but I would love to see a little imagination along the way.

I would like to see a couple of F-150/Mustang/Raptor colors. The raptor blue is pretty sweet as is that blackish/gray color off the stangs.

2008 Red CCSB 6.4 Auto Lariat.
Stock 20's wrapped in 35x12.50R20 Toyo MT's, 3.73 gears, Nav, Backup Cam, Tailgate step, Upfitters, etc.
Mods: AFE Intake, Line-X, 20% Tint, Clear Bra, Husky Mats, Smoked Recon Mirror markers/3rd brake light, Bushwacker Pocket style flares w/ mud flaps + an aluminum Rapid Hitch (one of the best investments!)
Feel free to PM with any questions about any of my mods.

SRW Club #55
American Club #55


Last road trip-567 miles @ 20.7 mpg @ 67mpg average speed.
