2021 Ford F-150 Gains New Guard Color: First Look

Sponsored

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

2021 Ford F-150

Assigned order code HN, Guard is a metallic color that’s one of 15 available hues for the 2021 Ford F-150. The green color is a no-cost option, but its availability is limited since the hue can’t be paired with certain packages or trims. For instance, it cannot be paired with the XLT Sport Appearance Package or the Lariat Sport Appearance Package. Additionally, it is completely shut out of the XL, Platinum, Limited, Tremor, and Raptor trims. Hence, the color can only be paired with XLT, Lariat and King Ranch trims.

Ford F-150 Trim Levels:

  • XL
  • XLT
  • Lariat
  • King Ranch
  • Platinum
  • Limited
  • Tremor
  • Raptor

Ford F-150 Interior Color Combinations:

  • Black
  • Black With Medium Dark Slate
  • Black With Baja Tan
  • Black With Carmelo
  • Java
  • Admiral Blue
  • Medium Dark Slate
  • Kingsville
  • Rhapsody Blue

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 Guard 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 truck, 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.

    Love the green, hate the chrome…and you can’t get the Guard green with blacked out trim? Why?

      You don’t want to be able to polish up your bumper with some steel wool if it gets a bit dirty or gets a rust spot? Get the bus splats off of your grille? Blackout is just a trend anyway.

        Well, it would be good in Color on Color. Chrome is out of date.

        Al only mentioned that the person isn’t limited to chrome if they don’t like chrome, which is correct. Learn how to improve your reading comprehension.

          You’re as dumb as him, the guy literally wanted green without chrome and Al says get xl to avoid chrome, pretty sure you both were in the same reading class

            Carl, YOU’RE the one here demonstrating a lack of reading comprehension.
            Al pointed out that the chrome can be avoided, but did not mention the green because that was not the point of his comment on the article. It was not a direct reply. There was a separate comment on the article, but you made that correlation yourself.
            Carl, you were the only one here to misrepresent the situation because it seems you have a lot of reading comprehension issues.
            Al made a factually correct statement. I only ever pointed this out, not mentioning green at all. Yet, you say I went to the same reading class (a highly moronic statement if there ever was one) as though I had mentioned anything about the other comment myself. Please, sit down. Take your anti-psychotics.

    Ford has been limiting trim packages on trucks for years. We’ve had several platinum and limited trucks. Always limited in interior colours that don’t always look good with limited exterior colours. As a buyer paying big bucks you should have any colour inside or outside especially on high end models. It should be on bare bones low end models that have few trim options. Bad enough you now pay for the colours that are tri colours.

      I agree that you should be able to build your truck. Pick and choose everything. Packages are nice for buying off the lot. If you order a car or truck, the Customer should be able spec everything. Especially since they cost so damn much!

    Love the colours……HOWEVER, Ford is really missing the boat on only offering some of the colours with with Chrome Package. Colours like Guard, Antimatter Blue and possibly Kodiak would look amazing in the Sport Appearance package. Ford really seems to be shy and slow on following the trend that is out there…….not sure why?

    Who cares? Ford has yet to ship orders from months ago. They’ll never get to build any of these before they shut down to retool for 2022 MY.

    I purchased a 21 in Lariat trim. For what I paid I would have liked to get what I really wanted. For instance if you want max trailer in lariat they force 20 inch tires on you. Order the same in king ranch you can get 18 inch. To get a light interior I had to order a color that I’m growing to like. Not my first option but I didn’t want black. Several other items but I could go on forever
