Do manufacturers use the same color codes for different makes?

We are often asked if a Ford paint code is the same paint color as a Lincoln paint code. YES, it is common for manufacturers to share colors across multiple makes.


For example, Mopar (Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth/Jeep) paint code PS5 (Silverstone Metallic) is available for a Jeep Grand Cherokee and a Chrysler Sebring.


So, if you don’t find your Lincoln paint code, try Ford!!!
