Default new 2013 blue color code GXH

It is reported that this is color code GXH called blue ray metallic on the Impala. Same color code for the Night Race Blue on the 2013 Corvette. Think that's right?? I thought it was also reported the Corvette color wouldn't be used on any other car - so maybe this isn't it.

I still think it will be the blue on the Corvette GTP race cars.

If the code is GHX on the Impala, its the same color for the Corvette.

I think that is the color. Code GXH. This is the 2014 Impala so maybe it won't be on any other 2013 vehicles...

Yup.

When GM says that a color will only be used on Corvettes, that means that the NAME of the color will only be used in Corvettes. The actual color will show up just about everywhere in the GM lineup.

That looks pretty close to it as I saw a couple rear bumpers painted the new blue when I picked up my new car a couple weeks ago. It looks very close to my Navy Blue Metallic I had on m 2001 but just a shade lighter. Going to look awesome on the C6!

And don't forget, it's going to be exclusive to the C6 . . . NOT.
