Default Want yellow? I'm hoping it's not a shock

GM has a new "yellowish" color out on 2019 Camaro and Bolt. Formally called "Shock"

Not a fan based on what I've seen so far and hoping this does NOT make it's way to the C8.

Looks green to me.

The C5 had a really nice yellow, great warm yellow color that "pops". I hate the shade of yellow that makes even new cars look faded/dull, which is surprisingly common.

That shock color is an abomination.

I'm not a yellow fan at all but this is a pretty nice look.

I agree; I saw that color on a car the other day and it is striking.

Default 2019 Camaro press release 2018-10-16

The release calls it yellow, although most of us seem to be seeing a greenish yellow or a yellowish green.

Chevrolet today previewed a new Shock yellow exterior color for the 2019 Camaro. It will be available in early 2019.

I'm just hoping GM will go out of the norm a bit and offer some colors that are fresh. Have the standard ones but have some additional more youthful options also. That being said, I'm pulling for White Diamond Tri-coat to finally be available. Lol, I'm really pushing it with that choice I know. HA

I agree 100% and have said the same thing in the past. I just think that "Shock" might not be a good addition based on the images so far. Maybe it's a color you have to see.

My Mustang is a flat yellow that looks pretty good (IMHO), but I'd prefer a yellow with either a pearl or metallic look.

I would also like a nice green or deep red, or a bright blue.

I actually like many of the C7 colors, but definitely a bold color over a silver, white, or black (they all look good too, but I like something that stands out a bit - keeps the other drivers on their toes).
