Still no new blue color on the 2014?

Anyone else disappointed that there is no new medium blue color being offered on the redesigned 2014? Looks like when I'm ready to buy a Camaro, I'll have to go searching for a used 2010 ABM.

But.....

There is a blue accent interior package...but no blue outside ?

I look forward to seeing what that package looks like and what exterior colors you can get it with.

I thought for sure this time around there would be a bright blue, why else would they put nice blues on Hot Wheels special editions and pace cars, just for torture? The only Blue is Blue Ray Mettalic which is so dark its looks black in most photographs.

I love the BRM colour but I also wish they would offer a lighter blue.

Blue Ray Metallic is barely a shade of Blue IMO. Imperial Blue was a great Blue on the Camaro. FBodFather's reasoning for keeping shades of Blue off the Camaro nameplate is because they don't sell well in Blue. Kinetic Blue is a great color if it was minus the Hotwheels logos & vinyl flames.

Anyone know if the SS that was displayed on the Kelly and Micheal Strahan show was the new Red Hot color or the Red Rock Metallic color?

One of the first things that shoot me down on trading in for a newer model, no decent blue color. I LOVE my IBM.

I don't think it was either... Looked like Crystal Red Tintcoat to me.

Evidently not. Pretty bummed. We should have something similar to Kinetic Blue.

Then charge extra for it like the IOM. I would lay down an additional $500 for a blue that I liked. Everyone seems to have this mentality that other colours just will not sell.

Looks like RED HOT. It was used on the Pontiac G8

Actually i gotta admit I'm kinda glad the blues are somewhat rare on Camaros. I thought for sure they'd start making that Kinetic Blue a standard color for '14, and I'm still unconvinced it won't eventually appear. I love my 2010 ABM SS, and as much as I dig the new Z/28, knowing it's not available in a kick-ass blue color makes me content to keep the car I have. Regardless of what upgrades and changes they make, if the colors aren't to my liking I'll never trade mine for a newer one.

With that said, I wouldn't put it past GM to add Kinetic Blue (or a similar "nice" blue) to the 2014 colors after they've taken the last order for the "exclusive" $6000 2013 Hot Wheels edition...They already list a blue trim package for the interior... watch and see if the paint color doesn't appear later, even if not available immediately.

You heard it here first.

Understatement of the year. A Lemans Blue 2014 Z/28 would be totally off the chain cool.

Scott (Fbodfather) said it's similar to rock shades out in Vegas. So yeah kinda a reddish, orangish, brownish color lol. Similar to the Vette.

They are still selling 2013's in that color for a $6000 option, saying it's "exclusive". If they're going to offer Kinetic Blue in 2014 they certainly aren't going to say so yet. Don't give up hope, I still think it's coming.
