White was named the most popular car color in America beating out long-time favorite silver which has been the country’s most popular car color for the past ten years. It’s about time some fresh meat takes the crown from silver, but then again, the most exciting thing about white is when it makes an appearance on wheels. Refer to this Mustang Saleen and this Subaru WRX STi. White may be the most popular car color in America, but based on 117 responses from our Facebook fans, both red and black beat out America’s favorite by quite a majority. Even further down the list is silver, which was beaten out by the color blue in the fourth spot and green in the fifth-place spot.

Some cars are quite capable, however, and here are a few rides from the Mojo Motors used car listings that make the grade.
