That blue exterior color is sweet! I bet a new Camaro in that color, with white racing stripes, would look good.

That color is Bermuda Blue, and it is AWESOME!!

My 2005 Tahoe is that exact same color, and we get compliments on it all the time...

How are we just now getting a "First Look" when these things have been on dealer lots for many weeks, now?

Exactly what I thought but then I realized maybe now it's a trim by itself when in 07 it was an optional package.

About the 'First Look' thing, I used a formatting template I usually use for new pics. My fault. :(

Oh, so you were just being lazy. Thats fine then. :P

I think it was also called blue green crystal metallic, paint code is 26U. I have this color on my Grand Prix.

Any vehicles with offroad aspirations should not have air-dams hanging that low. Other wise looks good. :thumbsup:

The Z71s don't have an air-dam except for the Silverado Z71. What you see on the Avalanche, Tahoe and Burban is a wind deflector for just the tires. Instead of the air hitting the tire and then going into the wheel well and then causes turbulance, it is directed around the tire. Look at the Avalanche LTZ or Tahoe Hybrid if you want to see an air-dam. I wish GM would design the front of the their trucks without one and a more aerodynamic under side by installing belly pans / large skid plates or other means. They would get better approach angles, it looks better, smaller frontal area, and better fuel economy.

Actually, they've been one sale for months now. I saw them back in October at the local dealer.

Won't that look exactly like Sixty8's Panther? :P

Close... but not exaclty :P This blue looks like it has a little green in it, and it's more vibrant. 68's reminded me more of the blue that came on the mid-to-late 80's Camaros.

I still hate the way the options are grouped into the Z71 package. I wouldn't want one because of it.

Also, the flares are a miserable design failure which mars the good looks of these trucks.
