They definitely need another shade of blue. At the very least get rid of IBM and replace it with the blue used for the "Dusk" camaro prototype. And While I'm at it. Make the interior trim in the "Dusk" available as well. I love the color in the new Mustang. I'd love something similar in the Camaro.

Have to agree - my current car is a royal blue. The new Mustang blue is great & Jetstream Blue would be perfect!

I'm holding out for the HUD display & hoping they'll get another blue by then....

At first I was not that worried because we were told that Hydo Blue would step in to replace Aqua Blue. Now I'm hearing rumors that Hydro Blue will not replace Aqua Blue!!!

Chevy needs to offer a second Blue !!! I wish I could have bought it in the first year but I could not, and I wont buy it in 2011 if there is not a Bright to medium Blue available!!!!

Please Chevy reconsider Hydro Blue or find another Blue or I wont be buying a Camaro in 2011 !!! Ill either buy a used Aqua Blue or a used c6.

Does any one agree?
This is one of the dilemnas of new cars....
1. You could wait and buy the second year car. this lets the manufacturer find and fix any kinks before you get yours.
2. Buy one the first year, be one of the first to own something that will be more of a collector (because it is the first of a well sought car). Get the original color choices. And enjoy the car from the begining, instead of drooling over other people's cars.

Seems waiting only made it worse for the people that wanted the Aqua blue....

Love this color. Arrival Blue. Best blue GM has ever put out.

However, there does need to be some different colors offered.

I think they should offer many other colors like them or not. This would make them more rare. But, in the real world GM needs to make money and they need to keep colors that sell. I do think it's funny though that dodge it bringing back plum crazy , yellow , and that light blue. But, they don't ever seem to go with the flow. That might be why their're
in the mess their're in.

We need another blue, but I'm afraid that we may not get it. With another blue to pick from, I wouldn't be fretting over what color I like next best.

I got a ABM and I love the color. I don't care but I did vote for a lighter color. It just made my value go up IMHO due to them stop making the color. Regardless I plan on keeping it for a loooooooooooooong time.

Yep, they need a shade of blue that was on the 1st gens, and a shade of green from back then too while they're at it. The Arrival Blue, Jetstream Blue, and Synergy Green are just too gaudy to me.

First off, I love my ABM as well. Only time I'm not as in love with it is when its in my low light garage and looks very dark green, but take her outside, and especially if theres sun, then shes absolutely gorgeous and not so entirely far off from some of the other blues Ive seen shown in this thread that people want. Its just more dynamic in different lighting than the others.

That said, Ive seen a Stryker blue G8 in person and it too was awsome and I'd definitely have my camaro in that if it was offered instead of ABM..

Pic below doesnt do it full justice according to my memory:

If you look at the 2009 Challenger Colors and match them to the Camaros,
GM pretty went the safe route, and offered what Challenger/Mustang have out there.

Orange, Red, Burgandy red, white, Dark Blue, Silver, Grey, Black,... of course, with their own interpetations.

The new bright blue that Dodge is offering beats the Aqua green/blue that GM has, and is rightfully killing off.

Besides, the Challenger is a lower volume car, so they can do Plum Crazy, and their Yellow... though it seems that they killed off their Orange... (too bad, that looked bad a$$)

I agree whole-heartedly! To me, ABM was the best color available to date. Not too dark, not too light. Vibrant looking, but not too "blindingly vibrant" like VR or Rally Yellow in sunlight. It was perfect!

Why, because it's on a Mustang? That's a really good shade of blue. I would buy an SS in that color.

Sorry to go "off topic" but did GM borrow the front bumper of this truck for the rear fascia in their Camaro GFX package?

Whatever you call this color, the Camaro needs it. Or if they can steal Subaru blue.

I'm not trying to say a light blue will or will not happen...just something to think about.
Correct and keep in mind decisions like this are generally made early enough to be able to set up ordering and brochures, etc. So whatever the decision is................it's probably already been made.
