I have Magma Red on my '18, and while it is beautiful, it shows car wash scratches horribly bad, I would never get it again.
Thanks for the tip, didn't think of that.

So I'm being told by the Military Auto Source folks that, for special orders, FORD can use a previous model year (2020) color/paint on a 2021 model as long as its available.

Can anyone confirm this?

I have an order for a 2021 F-350 Platinum in Blue Jean which is a color not available in 2021 models. I haven't seen the colors for the Superduty models but can I assume they will be the same as the F-150?

Here is a video showing Space White. I’ve never had white and am considering. They say it’s more of a light gray. Thoughts?
Thanks for posting vid, I thought it might be a pearl when I first saw the color lineup. This confirms it, tri-coat pearl using silver base, very clean look vs. pearls back in the day with gold base giving a yellowed or dirty white look. This might be my first choice now

I really like the silver spruce available on the F250, I wonder if they are holding back any colors.

I'm going to order a Platinum, but I may have to wait to see the colors in person. Iconic Silver is my go to color (similar to my existing truck), but I also am curious about Carbonized Grey and Smoked Quartz. Not sure even when the configuration tool launches I will be able to get a real sense of the colors.

Anyone know what's on the roof on either side of the 3rd brake light?
Almost looks like two plastic caps.

Looks like a satellite based antenna and ??? WiFi receiver antenna..

I like the look better than the horn mine has at the pass side front of the roofline...never did like it..

I doubt the online configurator is going to give an accurate representation. I have a Magma Red Lariat - and the online picture of it is nowhere close to the actual in-person color. The best representation is seeing paint chips in read life - which sucks if you want to order something now.

I ordered a Platinum in Antimatter Blue - I'm still unsure of exactly how it's going to look - even the colors on the reveal website vs. the colorizer at the bottom of the page make those colors look different:

I wonder if they have the paint samples for Anti Matter blue from a different model at the dealerships?

I am in no hurry to order one. My '18 Taco is a fine truck, just tight for the family and can't tow the things I want to tow. If Antimatter turns out to be a rich in color as the top photo, I could see that being a choice I would consider. I almost bought a Blue Jean 2-tone King Ranch earlier this year, but held off due to pandemic. It was a handsome truck, but it would have been a change for me, as I have favored black interior cars/trucks for some time now. The 2021 KR has way to many KR logos and KR script all over it to appeal to me. I think the Platinum is going to be a sharper truck.

As far as I have been able to tell through researching this online, it's a new color appearing for the first time on the '21 F150 and the new Bronco, so yeah, probably won't see one in person for a while now... I am also curious about this color as I find Velocity Blue a bit too light, but at the same time not super happy this darker blue doesn't work with the sport packages. I may go with one of the red colors as a result, even though I have a preference for Blue in general.

It's a shame they removed the Magma Red. It would have looked gorgeous paired with the burgundy-accented interior of the Lariat sport package!

Why are photos of 2021 King Ranch so hard to find? :unsure:
Sure would like to see the two-tone in Guard, Kodiak Brown and Smoked Quartz o_O
