OFFICIAL Gray and Red for 2012 Camaro is...

The new OFFICIAL Metallic Red is going to be Crystal Claret (GBE)

The new OFFICIAL Gray will be called Ashen Gray (GLJ)

Description of Ashen Gray from fbodfather:
Quote:
Ashen Gray - at least to me - has more 'gold' in it versus 'blue' that was found in Cyber Gray - it's a tad darker, perhaps - but VERY rich looking. It's my sense that it highlights the body contours more.....and the creased edges.......
Limited availability to start.

GBE is the Crystal Red used on the Corvette and Cadillac.

GLJ appears to be a new grey this year. No cross-reference available for WA810T for years prior to 2012.

EDIT: I think this is the correct color shown on the Buick Regal GS...

I'm glad there's more colors, but what a horrible name for the gray. Isn't ashen gray the color you would turn shortly before dieing?

Awesome timing...I just asked I guy at work today about his red Cadillac SUV. He said Crystal Red. I thought it would be a good color for Camaro

As far off as CGM appears I don't know how I can trust that chart.

Something is up with this chart. The Cyber Gray looks blue and the Ashen Gray looks like Cyber Gray.

I think the reason CGM looks like that is because it isn't available on 2012 models. In other words, it's just a place holder for a color that isn't actually available.

I don't think she posted pics of the colors, just the names. I don't see any pics either.

Ashen Gray - at least to me - has more 'gold' in it versus 'blue' that was found in Cyber Gray - it's a tad darker, perhaps - but VERY rich looking.

It's my sense that it highlights the body contours more.....and the creased edges.......

Is it similar to the 'Golden Pewter Metallic' that was used on the Malibu a few years ago? I LOVED that color.
