Choosing Your Car Colour

Our choice of car style and colour can often be very revealing of our personality. Research suggests that those of us who drive white vehicles are direct, straight talking individuals who like everything to be immaculate and precise, while those who opt for brighter colours (such as orange) are more likely to be reckless, impulsive, and artistic.

Classic Ford Car Colours

Although most new Ford models are available in a plethora of colours, there are a few staple colours that are associated with classic Ford models, as well as more futuristic colours that are starting to become more popular. Here are a few to consider when deciding which colour Ford best suits your personality.


As well as proving a popular colour for more recent models, such as the Fiesta and the Focus, red is not just a colour for family hatchbacks. It was also a popular choice for the first generation of Mustang, Ford's trademark sports car, which has undergone a recent revamp. Transitioning to more of a coupe style from the traditional convertible, the 2017 Mustang still retains all the classic appeal of the original while having more of a supercar edge. Red is a popular colour among those who consider themselves extroverted, impulsive, and hedonistic. It is seen as the 'fun' colour out of the typical choices.


Although black might be dismissed as boring and a safe choice, a black car can also indicate a sense of mystery, as well as an effortless, sophisticated style.Black tends to be a popular choice for the Focus and Fiesta models, though it needn't be simply a safe choice. Ford has recently released the Heritage '66 GT, an elegant motorsport model with two subtle silver racing stripes running through the Ford logo and a buttressed, carbon fibre body. And of course, Henry Ford famously said; 'Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black' about the Model T in 1909.


White may be traditionally associated with those who are obsessed with cleanliness and like to keep their vehicles in pristine condition, but, in the case of Ford drivers, this might actually indicate the opposite. The Transit van has long been a favourite of working men and tradesmen alike and, due to often being used for these purposes, it is actually far more common to see a Transit van with a thin layer of dirt and dust covering the body than it is to see one perfectly polished. A white vehicle could therefore well indicate a hands on personality as opposed to a clinical and fastidious one.
