Car Shoppers Love Black Ford Mustangs

DEARBORN, Michigan — Black is the most popular exterior paint color in the U.S. for the 2015 Ford Mustang, according to Ford in a report on Thursday.

"With white the top color choice in the United States overall, Mustang bucks the trend," the automaker said. "Black remains the top Mustang color, followed by Magnetic Metallic and Ruby Red."

Mustang sales in the U.S. were up 32 percent in February.

The redesigned Mustang reached Ford dealer lots late last year and is on sale now.

In December, Edmunds purchased a 2015 Ford Mustang in Competition Orange for its long-term test fleet.

Since Mustang is now a global offering, Ford also reported that in China and Europe, Race Red clinches the top spot for exterior paint color choice, with Absolute Black in a tie for first in Europe.

"Passion for the car is global, but trends are beginning to surface based on customer data that provide an early glimpse into regional similarities and differences among Mustang enthusiasts worldwide," Ford said.

Key competitors to the Mustang include the Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger and Nissan 370Z.

Edmunds says: Something for prospective Mustang buyers to consider, especially as they weigh things like resale value.
