Lightbulb The Official "Medium Blue" 6th Gen Petition

The release of the "magenta" color has pushed me to the breaking point. Maybe someone will pay attention to this if we get enough sigs/votes - can we please finally get a medium blue color option on the 6th Gen??? There must be some bean-counter at GM that thinks blue won't sell, but I can't buy that argument. I see blue cars of many makes and models on the road, the other car companies don't seem to be having any trouble with it. Maybe GM thinks we don't want it? Seemed to work for the 3rd Gen. No more excuses, it's time to take action!!! Let your voice be heard and vote!!!

MEDIUM (e.g SONIC / COBALT / LAGUNA / ELECTRIC / ROYAL) BLUE IN 2017 !!!!!!

I agree with that. More choices are good.

But if GM really wants to impress me, they can start using a paint system that survives the real world.

As much as we here want a medium blue the numbers don't lie to what have sold and is popular in all honesty how many blue cars do u see on the road compared to other colors? I don't see that many while driving around. Do I think they should offer one yes to be competitive with the chally and mustang which have blues but they don't see the business case for it.

Might have better luck getting people to chime in if you post this over in the 6th gen subforum - just a thought.

It is safe to say that the 6th gen will share a paint booth with the ATS/CTS lineup so we just have to look for paint choices that will be used by the factory alpha triplets.

This is not a picture my old truck, but back in 2003 I had an Arrival Blue Silverado extended cab sport-side and it was such an amazing color. This would be a great addition to the color line up going forward.

I agree with this statement.

That said I think that blue on the ATS is nice, but seems just a tad on the dark side for my tastes. I guess that's the hard part....finding a blue that appeals to the blue lovers out there. If ABM actually looked in person like it did on the GM website I wouldn't own one.

For me I like a slightly lighter METALLIC blue like Laguna blue on the new C7 or Kinetic blue on the hot wheels Camaro. Kinetic Blue for me, is THE perfect blue.

That really light baby blue you can get on the new Mustangs is way too light...I couldn't do that one.

Gotta chime in here and say BLUE....would love a blue

The Impala is made in the same plant as the Camaro and has a nice blue (topaz blue) and still no blue on the Camaro....so it's not a given because they are in the same plant....I wish that was the case though.

At least you can get a nice blue on the new Chevy trucks now. Maybe there is hope for the new Camaro.

YES, YES, YES. The main reason I haven't seriously considered a upgrade to a newer model. Something around this tone/hue will work just fine.

The main reason we don't see many blue cars is because the manufactures are currently convinced people don't want it. The HotWheels Camaro is a great color, especially in person...I haven't met anyone who said they didn't like it. (I would go order a 1LE Camaro in HotWheels blue right now if it was available)

The first C7 I saw in the wild was a Laguna Blue. What are the odds of that? If this isn't a popular blue, I don't know what is
