CRT is a good mix between Victory Red and RJT... add some more black accents like the Vette and bingo...
If I was into red cars...it's what I'd get in a heartbeat!!

Many old posts on the RJT when it first came out on the 2010 camaro's were the complaints or concerns of the plactic parts vs the metal paint not matching. I notice it on the 7th and 9th picture of the front bumper on the camaro. I don't seem to notice the fiberglass vs the plastic parts on the CRT Vets not matching. But both colors are awesome and bring back memories of the candy apple custom paint jobs in the 60's.

Alright so my parents are planning on getting a 2012 Equinox and I went to the dealership today to check it out. While I was there, I looked at a Cruze and a Sonic in CRT......wow. This color is absolutely amazing and pictures don't do it justice!!

Funny I've always said I'm not a Red or Yellow kind of guy, but this one being darker really looked good. Now I need to see Ashen Gray to make the final decision...

I thought there was more of a color difference between the two colors but they seem way to similar.

I've never been a fan of RJT but the new CRT looks great with the black accents. Definitely better than RJT... I think this combo would look great on the ZL1..

What do you all think?
Crystal red tintcoat rocks. Gold metalflake over the red base color brings out the best hues of red in all lighting conditions IMHO. It gives the color an even tone, depth, and warmth across the entire light spectrum. We have a 2012 Cruze with it, and I must say, it's a jewel!

I saw it under florescent light then in the dark and as the sun came up it looked great in all conditions... Seemed to change with the lighting were as RJT did not.

Actually all the metallic colors do.. just seemed as the sun came up that morning the CRT got much lighter in the bight sun and was very dark looking in the shade...

Don't mean to say one is better than the other... RJT rocks too..

I like the CRT over just a normal victory red color... however, i'd have to see it in person before deciphering between RJT and CRT

It's hard to tell a difference much between the two! They look almost exactly the same. Would have to see both side by side in person to tell a difference. It looks like the new red might be a tad brighter but its hard to tell but if it is its not by much.

If I wasnt going with IOM then CRT would be my next choice, although in my opinion it just begs for chrome wheels. Get someone to Photoshop you CRT with black and chrome wheels before you settle for black.

I looked at a couple CRT cars this weekend on the lot (cruze, vette, and some suv (traverse?)) and in person it seems to have a bigger difference than these pictures show vs RJT.

just my opinion

Tough choice. I do like the Candy one a little better. I have a silver 10 ss and I remember when all the paperwork was done I spotted a red jewel with gfx and the nicer gm wheels that are close to $4grand. I remember I wanted to change then like an idiot I felt bad that all the paperwork was done so I stayed with my Silver Ice Met. which I love. It was my first choice. I do regret not changing and if I got another chance id def. grab that Candy Red
