What new colors do you want for 2016?

Of course, we can expect the standard (and, in my opinion, boring) palette of black/white/red/blue(s)/silver, but what else?

Personally, I really like the Lime Rock Green that was available on the '14 Corvette Stingray. Not sure how well it sold, as they've ditched it for 2015, but it looks FANTASTIC in person.

BTM - Blue Topaz Metallic..........

But, I'm partial to blue. Almost every car I've owned has been some hue of blue.

I'd really like to see a nice medium blue, similar to ABM, and a nice foresty green would be killer, something like that lime rock.

you say "blue(s)" but honestly, we only ever get the super dark or greyish blues.

Give us a nice medium range metallic blue. That would REALLY get my attention.

Honestly, whatever colors the ATS/CTS gets is probably what we should expect since they are being built in the same plant, but I could be wrong and hopefully I am.

Aside from the blue, a school bus yellow instead of the bright yellow would be pretty sweet. Think Transformers yellow.

Daytona Sunset Orange like on the '05 '06 C6 Corvettes! I heard that GM may bring the color back for the '15 Stingrays! I think it would look incredible on a Camaro!

Like many of you, I'd like to see a brighter blue (along the lines of the Kenetic Blue Metallic Hot Wheels edition Camaro), as well as a green of some sort.

The Daytona Orange is optional on the 2015 Stingray.

They could bring back IBM. And I know lots of people were happy with ABM. I would think that the supply problems in Japan are fixed by now.

Bold, beautiful colors:
  • Bright Red
  • Bright Yellow
  • Bright Orange
  • Medium Green
  • Medium Blue
  • Black
  • White
  • Dark Grey
There are enough cars out there with bland metallic dark blue, metallic dark red, and silver paint jobs. Camaro colors should stand out.

Amen, brother. I don't think that there's been any period in my lifetime when car colors have been more boring than they are right now. Companies like Toyota started the trend by offering a very limited, bland palette, and, sadly, GM has followed suit.

I fully understand that the dealers hate getting stuck with cars in 'unique' colors that are hard to sell, but I'd like to see automakers such as GM put a little more effort in broadening consumer tastes in this regard. Even it means offering certain colors only as 'special order' items, do something to return to the days of offering cars like the Camaro in 15 or more colors.

Aqua blue metallic
Kinetic blue
Laguna blue

If gm doesn't want to bring these colors why not make it an option. I would pay a little extra to get any of these colors.

A bright metallic silver is a must as well in my opinion. Otherwise...agreed.

Laguna Blue.

If that happened, I would be on the ground in tears for one of two reasons depending on the timing of the announcement.
