I was just out on the Chevy website building another AV and I noticed how many color choices were availible. I was checking to see what they all were and there were 4 new color codes so I have no idea what they actually are though. Maybe someone here can help us out.
The new colors are:
56U
25U
59U
63U
they all say Non-Orderable Future Color

What's up with this? ???
 
Lance should be able to answer this for us or maybe even the Fearless one....

Just have to wait for them to see this....

According to the Duplicolor website (if I'm reading it correctly):

25U: BRT BLUE MET (Light Blue) Chev Truck

56U, 59U, and 63U don't exist in any of their lists for Chevrolet, Chev Truck, GM, GM Truck, GMC Truck, or Hummer. So I guess those are probably completely new colors or color shades.

 
Figures! I just got my AV 3 weeks ago (love it, and wont trade it!! :love:), but I would have paid more for a Deep Carmine Red metallic that is on the Silverado line as a choice. That color would suit the AV nicely I think.

Wow, four new color choices. I guess Chevy is expecting to sell more AVs!! ;D


 
I'd just about bet you money that the Deep Carmine Red is one of them. The color swatches are very similar on the build-it page for the Silverado and AV. ;)
 
Yeah, I went and checked it out, and it is close. However, that code that is listed is not the one for Deep Carmine Red. It is proabably a slightly different shade that will go better with the cladding, or only be offered on the WBH package. (I have had a feeling all along that once the WBH package came out, they would make some colors only available on certain models.)
 
The color I always wanted on a Pickup is the Redfire Metallic that's on the Tahoe/Suburban. Don't know how it would look with the cladding, but it's a gorgeous color.
 
Not sure if this helps you folks but...

56U - was the code that Oldsmobile used for a colour called ALABASTER,
but the best match is from the Chevy Malibu colour choices - 56U Green, Dark Jade Metallic.

59U - once again is mentioned in some of the older Oldsmobile colour options as ORANGE METALLIC but just to confuse the issue the 2002 Bonneville has a colour option of 59U - Granite, Metallic

63U - Once again listed by Oldmobile as old colour called MED TAUPE METALLIC but of course is also listed in the Camaro 1999 colour options as - 63U Sport Gold metallic

LOL... so I'm not sure if I've added to the information or the debate. ;)
 
56U - Jasper Green Metallic
25U - Bright Blue Metallic
59U - Fine Silver Birch Metallic
63U - Sport Red
 
OK, those colors are from the 2003-2006 GM color chart. It does not specify car or truck, just the code and color reference.

Hope this helps,

I will check at work tomarrow I have never heard these Color codes before where did you find them?
 
Ok I see where you saw that I will check on it tomarrow I have not heard any thing yet on new color nor have I seen any thing on GM AutoBook but adgain I will check tomarrow
 
Mmm the thick plottens... now all we need is they PMS numbers and a budding artist with Paintshop Pro and we can even have some samples up for voting.
 
Ok, I have a color question so I guess it's sort of on topic. How long does it normally take Duplicolor to carry a new color? They still don't have Arrival Blue according to their web page. They say to contact the dealer to get some scratch fix paint. That's all well and good, but doesn't help if I want to spray paint my front bowtie. Any suggestions?

 
Here are the colors I found listed for the color codes;

56U : PRIMARY COLOR, EXTERIOR, ALABASTER

25U : PRIMARY COLOR, EXTERIOR, STEEL BLUE MET

59U : PRIMARY COLOR, EXTERIOR ORANGE MET

63U : PRIMARY COLOR, EXTERIOR, MED TAUPE MET

OK now I'm confused... I guess I'll let the two resident experts haggle it out. :cool:
 
Checked on the GMS version of gmbuypower and 2 of the colors are going to be Sport Red Metallic and Silver Birch. Looking forward to seeing those! Maybe they listened to us and our poll on what colors we'd like to see!
 
I hope they come out with a light silver on the AV that would look cool with the darker cladding
 
You can read all about them, get links to the GM info., and see what has been changed, over in the Future section.

Click here: 2004 Avalanche

Just to make note, no more Yellow, Sunset Orange, Pewter, or Arrival Blue (after December)!
