I have 3 white vehicles. Living in the southeast all my life and never owned a white vehicle until we bought our 2018 F350 tan interior. Parked in the Florida sun, it takes only a few minutes to be comfortable. 2019 YUKON white, 2019 Corvette white.

Interesting discussion on exterior colors, but what about interior colors. Why are soooooo many black? Black!!! The hottest, and arguably most difficult to keep clean (actually clean -- not just looking clean). Give me a light color interior any day of the week. So much cooler, so much easier on the eyes, and unless you're transporting a work crew, as easy to keep clean as any other color.

White has long been the dominate color in this area. We have owned vehicles of just about every color over the years except orange. But our last several have all been white. And will likely continue.

Three gray and one tan interior for me.

You'll find more white where the summers are hot, it reflects some of the heat.

Since I don't order my vehicles, I take whatever color (Except red)that is on the lot. It is hard enough to find a truck that hits the right spec without color coming into the mix.

My new truck is dark blue with faint metal flake in it, last truck was dark blue, Our Mercedes is silver/grey, and the wife's CRV is dark grey. Never cared for white vehicles. By contrast my sister has and will only ever have, a white vehicle.

I was visiting someone at a hospital and decided to have a look out the window. It happened that the view was of the parking lot six stories down.

Out of the entire lot, 99% of the vehicles were either white/silver or extremely dark midnight blue, green, or black.

It was very easy to spot my YELLOW Fiero as it was the only other color in the lot.

White is the easiest color to match when doing body repairs.
I went camping last week and there were 5 grey trucks in a row, a recently popular color.
