2021 Ford Escape Gets New Antimatter Blue Metallic Color: First Look


The 2021 Ford Escape adds four new exterior colors to its roster: Bronze Fire Metallic, Carbonized Gray Metallic, Iconic Silver Metallic and Antimatter Blue Metallic. Here’s our first look at the Antimatter Blue option.


Assigned order code HX, Antimatter Blue is one of nine available metallic color options for the 2021 Escape, out of a total 10 colors offered on the crossover.

The new Antimatter Blue color is a no-cost option and is available with both interior colors and across all trim levels. It replaces a previously-available color simply called “Blue.”

Ford Escape Trim Levels:

  • S
  • SE
  • SEL
  • Titanium

Ford Escape Interior Color Combinations:

  • Ebony
  • Ebony with Sandstone

2021 Ford Escape Launch Timeframe

As of this writing, the 2021 Ford Escape is available at the retail level, as the Ford Louisville Assembly plant has been producing the crossover since early January. But production of the Ford Escape and Lincoln Corsair was disrupted for about two weeks last month. At that time, the production stoppage was attributed to a lack of semiconductors that go into a brakes control module. Folks in the market for an Escape should check with their local dealers for complete details about availability.

We’ll have more on the 2021 Escape soon, so subscribe to Ford Authority for the latest Ford Escape news and around-the-clock Ford news coverage.

    Adding new colours does not change the short-comings of this vehicle, it desperately needs an update to the front end and the interior which is littered with cheap plastics. If Ford can fix those things, then it will have a winner on its hands, until then, it will struggle to make an impact on the market.

    We love Escapes. We had a 2005 that we bought new and sold it with over 190,000 miles and still going strong. My wife has a Lincoln MKC which is on the Escape platform and I now have a 2017 Escape SE. Never any complaints from us.


    We love our Escapes. We are on our third Escape its a 2010 Hybrid. Still waiting on the ESCAPE PHEV. We have had it ordered with $3000 down since January 2020. STILL WATING!!!!
