The all-new, 2021 Ford F-150 adds seven new colors to its roster: Antimatter Blue, Space White, Guard, Kodiak Brown, Code Orange, Smoked Quartz Tinted Clearcoat, and Carbonized Gray. Here’s our first look at the Carbonized Gray option.

2021 Ford F-150

Assigned order code M7, Carbonized Gray is a metallic color and is one of 15 available colors on the 2021 Ford F-150. It’s a no-cost option, but its availability is limited since the hue can’t be paired with certain trims. It is available on XL, XLT, and Lariat but is not available on King Ranch, Tremor, and Raptor.

  • XL
  • XLT
  • Lariat
  • King Ranch
  • Platinum

  • Raptor

Ford F-150 Interior Color Combinations:

As of this writing, the 2021 Ford F-150 is available at the retail and fleet level, as the Ford Dearborn Truck plant and Ford Kansas City Assembly plant have been producing the truck since September and October of 2020, respectively. Unfortunately, the ongoing microchip shortage has severely impacted output at both facilities, so shoppers interested in models clad in Carbonized Gray should once again check with their dealers regarding pricing and availability of the light-duty trucks.

Ford Authority has extensively reported on the all-new, 14th generation 2021 Ford F-150, and the plethora of changes that arrived with the debut of the new model, which include the introduction of the first-ever hybrid F-150, powered by the Ford 3.5L PowerBoost V6. Additionally, the newly introduced truck features a myriad of tech and features enhancements and additions, like Sync 4, the Interior Work Surface, Max Recline Seats, Pro Power Onboard, and more. This summer, the F-150 will gain Onboard Scales, active suspension tech, an all-new Tremor off-road trim level, while also reintroducing the F-150 Raptor back into the lineup after a brief hiatus.

More exciting changes await the F-150 for the 2022 model year, as the paradigm-busting F-150 Lightning is expected to arrive at U.S. dealerships next spring as the first-ever full-size electric pickup from a traditional American automaker. The upcoming model is already racking up an impressive number of reservations and has already been enthusiastically sampled by President Joe Biden.
