Default New '16 Color Preview "Long Beach Red?!"


We just got these from GM, as I thought, the New Darker Red with the Red top will be the futuristic 40th Anniversary replica in my opinion….and the reports of the New Yellow being darker, makes sense because it was seen in the plant and lighting there is not natural, but I see very little difference





COULD BE THE NEW RED NAME….I LOVE IT “LONG BEACH RED” WITHOUT A FLASH!!!


WITH A FLASH!






SEE YOU TOMORROW IN BG GANG!

I wonder how the new blue in the 3LT will be spread out over the interior-dash covered like kalahai, or perhaps carpet colored blue like gray interior or maybe a new spread.

Ohhh adrenaline red with black suede inserts might just make it on my order!
My car is going to be torch red with black stripes and carbon badges so the new seats would really look nice with my bright red and black theme!

Not all 3lt colors are spread over the dash, grey and red are not.

"Spicy turd" aka "Taco Bell meat red"

Yay...another red... just what we were missing. Sure glad they ditched CGM for 38 new red colors.

Yellow...looks the same.

Two tone seat options and suede insert options is cool, though.

The yellow actually looks lighter to me.

Either way, it is VERY similar and I'm glad. Don't mess with a good thing.
I like the new name though!

They probably went with a new yellow so they could change the color name.

I wonder if the Blue interior will clash with Laguna Blue.

Like the darker gray options now instead of only the light gray or black.

That's what I was thinking. Unless you saw them side by side you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference. It's more for the cooler name. How many Shark Gray cars would be ordered if it was marketed as Fusion Gray or Ashen Gray Metallic? (like the Malibu in shark gray)

Maybe drop Crystal red. This looks to be a flop color also.
GM color guy is off in the head. CGM should have stayed.
Don't like the new SG. Lets see how it sells in for 2016.
Once people have seen it!

Actually staring at it in my garage I love the Shark Gray, but I would've been just as happy with Cyber Gray as well. That's kinda why I got SG. Thought CGM was the best color to go with all the black/carbon flash trim, but didn't have the money for a C7 quite yet for model year 2014. SG was the closest thing for '15. I was kinda thinking white for a split second too though...
