Blue Ember

This deep blue shade steals the show, reminiscent of a majestic dark horse. Enriched with gold metallic flakes, the paint catches sunlight, radiating a delicate glow that ensures it commands attention wherever it goes. This exceptional shade owes its dynamism to "special effect pigments," allowing for a dramatic colour shift based on lighting and angle. As Ford describes, a harmonious blend of colours was used to achieve this visual magic. In photos, the paint intriguingly seems to shift between dark blue and a hint of light purple, all dependent on varied conditions. But there's a catch! It's exclusive to the Mustang Dark Horse variant with the Appearance Package. 


Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat

Grabber Blue Metallic holds a special place in the hearts of Mustang enthusiasts, though it hasn't consistently been a staple of the iconic pony car. The Mustang colour palette first welcomed Grabber Blue in 1970, instantly capturing the attention and admiration of car enthusiasts. Fast forward to today, and Grabber Blue Metallic stands out as a go-to colour, renowned for its striking and vibrant shade. It possesses a mesmerising depth and a glossy metallic sheen that makes it an absolute head-turner on the streets. Ford Australia will be offering Grabber Blue as a prestige mustang colour add on.

For those seeking a sophisticated yet captivating hue, Atlas Blue is the way to go. Atlas Blue is another colour that will be offered as a Prestige Colour by Ford Dealers in Australia as an optional upgrade.


Yellow Splash Metallic

One of the newcomers Ford introduced to the 2024 Mustang colour palette. The previous two yellow colour choices that were available on the s550 Mustang, Triple Yellow and Grabber Yellow, were distinguished by their solid, non-metallic finish. Yellow Splash Metallic, on the other hand, introduces a vibrant and bold yellow hue reminiscent of its predecessors but with an added twist – metallic flakes in the paint. This not only enhances the car’s overall aesthetic but also adds a subtle shimmer, bringing a new dimension to this striking colour. Yellow Splash Metallic is prestige colour option when ordering your Mustang from a Ford dealer in Australia

Oxford White

We don’t see Ford discontinuing this colour any time soon and is here to stay for the 2024+ Mustangs offered in Australia. Oxford White will be offered by Ford Dealers as a no cost option.


Shadow Black

Shadow Black has been Ford’s go to choice for a Black shade. It  was first introduced to the mustang colour palette in 2016 with the s550 Mustang. It's a deep, rich black infused with metallic flecks, giving it a dynamic and multi-dimensional presence. When the light hits the Shadow Black finish, it shimmers, revealing its complex layers and pearlescent sheen. It has been a popular choice among Mustang enthusiasts for years, and we expect it to be a fan favourite for many years to come. Although a classic colour, shadow black is an optional extra when it comes to opting it or your Mustang through Ford Australia.
