The Ford Blue Oval emblem has been synonymous with FoMoCo vehicles for decades now, becoming one of the most famous and easily recognizable logos in the world. In fact, the first oval Ford emblem bowed in 1907, and the first Ford Blue Oval emblem appeared in 1927 before landing on all of Ford’s vehicles starting in 1979. The familiar Blue Oval has changed quite a bit since then, but it has always remained blue. However, in recent years, that has been slowly changing, as black ovals have been appearing on more and more Ford vehicles as black appearance packages gain in popularity across the entire automotive industry.
Today, a number of new Ford vehicles are sold with either standard or optional black oval emblems, in some cases as part of black or stealth appearance packages. Here’s a complete list of those vehicles as of this writing.
Ford Vehicles With Standard Black Oval Emblems
The 2021 Ford Explorer Timberline – an off-road-focused variant of FoMoCo’s long-running crossover – launched last month with a host of unique styling elements, including standard black oval emblems. The same is true of the second model in this new family – the 2022 Ford Expedition Timberline – which was just revealed back in September and is due to launch in early 2022.
Ford Vehicles With Optional Black Oval Emblems
The list of Ford vehicles with optional black oval emblems is far longer, though each of these vehicles is equipped with some sort of Black Appearance Package or Stealth Package. In terms of crossovers, this list includes the 2022 Ford Escape SEL with the SEL Stealth AWD Package, the 2022 Ford Edge SE with the Black Appearance Package, the 2022 Ford Expedition Limited with the Stealth Edition Package, and the 2022 Ford Expedition Limited With the Stealth Edition Performance Package.
Those that want a Ford pickup with a black oval can get one with the 2022 Ford Ranger with the Black Appearance Package (XLT, Lariat), the 2022 Ford Ranger with the Sport Appearance Package (XLT, Lariat), the 2022 Ford F-150 with the Black Appearance Package (XL STX, XLT, Lariat, Platinum), or the 2022 Ford Super Duty with the Black Appearance Package (XLT, Lariat).
