Alright, I'll bite. The refresh won me over with this color.

I agree !

I had high hopes for this color after seeing it on a Colorado, but the curves on the Camaro make it look even better !

Gen6_1Le 04-14-2018 03:56 PM

That's the car they should have shown on CBS on monday , Very Nice . I even like the rear view better which at first was my least favorite part .

Yes! Yes! Yes! Looks really nice

DanSS24 04-14-2018 04:58 PM

I approve. I really like this one. Now I wonder how the other colors would look. Nice catch.

I suspect the gloss black front bumper will be problematic with the sticky guts of Texas grasshoppers. :frusty:

Just use some Adam's paint sealant and they will hose right off . I wonder if the 1LE will have a satin finish.

Next time I see a new color I have to make sure I start an 'OFFICIAL' thread...

My god I couldn't believe my reaction to see this picture. I was thinking in my head 'what the hell... I'm actually liking this first image...'

That said the other angles are still messing with me. But I really do like grey cars. And that middle section MUST be painted.

I really like the rear end. The lights look awesome off and on. The ridge/crease thing above the diffuser is a so so thing for me right now. Getting a better look at it here I like the ridge directly above the diffuser... but the little pinch/crease is something I need to see more of.

Here are some photoshops I just did. I removed the crease on the rear. I'd probably just fill that thing in with bondo and paint over it. If Chevy swallows a little pride and paints that middle bumper they could really save this refresh. =)

Relax buddy! If you don't like a thread or think it doesn't make sense why be a dick and post sarcastic shit? It makes sense as some of the 19' colors are obviously new selections....:noidea: Possible only thing would be is to update the thread title to 2019. I rather find a thread like this then look all over the forums for each new color.

Hitman84 04-15-2018 10:50 AM

I will say that, this specific car in this color, definitely looks better then what we've seen so far but I still prefer the pre-refresh and happy I ordered an 18.

Good idea on adding 2019 to the title, that makes good sense to add the year. :biggrin:

I was just trying to fall in line with the other color threads.

This looks so much better. I actually like the new tail lights. I wish this colour was a tad bit darker though.

mmadden2 04-17-2018 07:15 AM

The new pics and video make the car look pretty darn great in the new gray... so you know it'll look even better in black when all that bumper craziness fades together :)

I was hoping for Carbon Black as this year's metallic black option but I guess Mosaic will have to do!

KMPrenger 04-17-2018 08:07 AM

Not trying to dash any hopes or whatever, but those pictures in the first post most certainly have some kind of filter or HDR affect being applied to them which makes the color really pop.

That said, I do like the Satin Steel. We wanted the same color on our 2018 GMC Terrain, but ended up with the darker metallic grey instead.

I was wondering about that myself since a few of the pictures look a little *too shiny*, but after watching the video I think it's just more shine and not changing the color.

Not real sure what he did with the pictures on the Flickr page for it it doesn't show anything special other than a real nice camera. Nikon D750 (about $1,800)....Only thing I see in the picture specs that could have effected it is (Sharpness - Hard).

Like you I really like the color and was already considering it on a ZR2.

Reminds me of the Shark Gray on the Corvette a few years ago, it could look dark and light depending on the lighting too.

Satin Steel Gray is a tad lighter, but still reminds me of it a lot.

Sometimes Satin Steel has a tinge of blue in it. Other times, it's more gray. It's a cool color for sure.

I bet the lines and curves of the Camaro make it look better than ever !

The hood vent is starting to suck because the shape shortens the hood instead of lengthening. Now definatly need hood stripe to relengthen. Also the rims just don't look agressive, need them in black or a different design.

Did you notice how similar the hood vent on the '19 is to those Corvette pictures above ?.....I was surprised how similar they are.

Thanks for posting those, I had been searching for more of it.

I am going to order one just like it with red leather so I'm stockpiling pictures until I get mine ! :happyanim:

Dolby109 04-18-2018 12:08 PM

Glad to help.
The engineer was talking about how fast the A10 shifts. It's possible this Camaro will have improved fuel economy with that transmission.
I am actually a bit shocked the Corvette hasn't gotten the A10 yet, as I've not really heard good stories about the A8. I'm a manual only guy myself so it's not a big issue to me either way though.

The C7 floorpan does not work with the A10. The C8(mid-engine Corvette) is going to have a Tremec 8 or 7 speed DCT, though. However, no manual will be offered for the first year or two.

I can believe that, I know the people with 8 Speeds get a little better MPG than I do with the 6 speed.

These little improvements really add up over a few years.

I hope they do offer a manual after a while. I think that is one of the big failings of the NSX, and the GT-R long before it.
Maybe Tremek will push the issue. I know Tremek makes manual swaps for Chargers and the Chinese transmission Mustang's.

Remember how Iconic the manual transmission Aston Martin Vantage was? The dogleg manual V12 Vantage is one of their best cars to date. With the new Vantage, a ZF 8-Speed is the only option, but a manual is coming in a couple of years. So many people but the manual that it would be bad business not to offer it. I believe Chevy will do the same thing, for the same reason.

I hope to be able to post pics of our Satin Steel 2SS 1LE in a couple of weeks. It has been built and waiting to be shipped now. It's currently the only stock ordered 2SS 1LE that has been built. Can't wait to see it in person. I love this color!
