This is the first time I’ve seen the paint colors listed for 2021. AutomotiveTouchup.com released the color lineup for next year:

Yes!

I guess Rapid Red Metallic is a 1-year only color. I kinda dig that.
Wait seriously? So there isn't another year with that color? So are they renaming the lucid red pearl as the new Ruby Red Metallic?

RRM is such a deep beautiful color. Shame Ford didn't stick with it...or maybe they did with a different name.

It’s common to tweak colors for subsequent years to keep things exciting. Looks like no metallic red for 2021.

Well that settles it, I will not go buy a 6 figure GT500 next year...I had planned on selling the kids on Ebay and moving to a van down by the river, but I guess I am good to keep a bit of homeostasis. Phew.

Lucid Red is another name for Rapid Red, it is also called Carpet Red - they are Ford/Lincoln colors

So why is it called a “pearl” and not a “metallic?”

I've never seen a pearl that was not also a metallic by default.. The Lucid could well be Rapid taken to another level..

Or not..

LOL..

That Antimatter Blue sounds very interesting..

That's the big question. It may be as Boss says, a metallic pearl. If that is the case, it should be pretty spectacular in the sunlight.

I've been begging Ford to do a creamy-white pearl metallic, like the European and Japanese makes offer on their higher-end offerings.

the bottom green one would be a hoot. Perfect for my after school candy distribution plans for random neighborhoods. 😂

that would be an awesome camping adventure setup though.

Did a little searching... Lucid Red Pearl is the same as Rapid Red Metallic... same paint code (D4). It’s just a name change.
