Does anyone think ALL models of a Brand should offer the same BASIC colors?
- tho beyond black/white/silver (not technically 'colors' anyway) like the same Red and Blue
? ...Could have (an)other red &or blue as well...

for the interiors:
just-imho, thinking of furniture ... BLACK is too strong for many people
more of a designer or bachelor-pad theme
so imho
the 2 basic colors should be dark-ish blue or tan(NOT beige)
(note: I generally prefer black dashtops with ANY interior for fighting
- glare/reflections
- overkill
)

ps
I'm not a purple person & almost always think that "choice-slot" would be better served with something else
(afaik there's a definite limit to how many colors a paint booth can utilize -- tho dunno how that works)
Yup, I've never understood why different models have different colors......in the sense of why don't they all have the same "base" colors (say a set black, white, red, blue), and then perhaps they could add additional "specialty" colors for certain models.

I guess they do do this for the most part, but it seems there are sometimes odd exceptions.

Current Vehicles:
2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Lightning Blue | Black Top | Black Interior

I would say the same thing, but Ford has multiple blues/reds that I do like, and some that I don't like, and some colors work on some models, but don't work on others.

Re: Ford Colors: What Do You Like/ Not Like/ What Do You Want to See in the Future?

The Lincoln MKC had a Purple for its first model year, but purple has fallen out of fashion.

Blue is the color of the year so we are seeing multiple variations from extreme cobalts like Rhapsody Blue to Gray Blues. Gray, Whites, and Blues are generally the color scheme of choice right now. I wish Ford and Lincoln...like the Europeans, offered more variations of black and dark grays or cleaner whites. Generally speaking Ford's color selection in the US is extremely basic with some occasionally garish colors that make no sense, especially in the beige and gold families.

Lincoln definitely needs to work on its color selections, I just wish they'd hire the color designers from Audi, BMW, or Mercedes.

Ford has a Blue Interior color? In what vehicle?

Ford used to offer a purple called "Phantom Purple" on the Fiesta in some markets including Asia.
