Now that the factual savvy are happy with that remark, we deem necessary to mention that the most popular black-painted luxury vehicles searched on Autotrader are the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz S550, and the Cadillac CTS. The chief editor of the publication is telling us that people buy black cars because it has something to do with their personalities. That true?
In a nutshell, yes, it is! We all know that black is the absence of color and so mysterious that our subconsciousness automatically associates it with things like the secretive, power, and authority. Then again, it's also an extremely formal choice because you can match everything with black.
Regarding how it affects the mind and body, scientists have proven that black creates an inconspicuous feeling, increases the sense of potential, boosts confidence and, on certain occasions, produces feelings of gloominess. Pretty interesting stuff, although this is just half of the story.
If you think about it for a second, black is the barrier that gives us protection from external emotional stress, providing protection to emotions and feelings while hiding one's insecurities. Maybe this is yet another reason the Ford F-150 pickup truck leads the ranking. Anything else? Bard Whalen, Ford color and materials designer, has something to add about this: “Color is a very important part of the vehicle purchase."
"After, ‘What vehicle did you get?’ it’s usually the second question asked – ‘What color is it?’ People relate their style to their color selection because it says something about their personality.” No truer words have ever been spoken. If you own an F-150, please drop a comment about the color of yours and why you've chosen it.
