What happened to orange? I'd probably go with blue chip and cashmere or black raven with ebony.

Sunburst got canned on the CTS a looooong time ago I think. It seems like that.

If I decide on this over my 5 Series in 09 or 10. I will get Black Cherry with Ebony Interior and 18" chromes, if it's still available.

There were pics on R&T of the '08 in orange, though. But yes, Sunburst was an '03-only color on the first-gen.

orange was among the first press shots shown, don't know why that isn't here. the red that was shown in the original press shots is boring, I guess this must be the same one.

Is this the entire list of colors? If it is, I guess I must commend GM, for from what can be seen here, there is not one geriatric color [except that gold mist might turn out to be pretty dull, but I give them one free pass]. From having disgusting unappealing asssssss greens that are so infuriating to see on a modern sports sedan Caddy.........to what we see here, well it's a welcome relief.

A darker red would be welcome. And I still can't understand why the export 2.8L V6 isn't getting DI. But I love the car's design, both inside and outside :)

It was reported that "Mulberry" leather would be optional, in the Tuscany grade leather? Maybe it will be a late model year offering? The report said it was a Red color, similar to the 2007 STS "V-Series" Red Interior? It would be great to have White Diamond with the Mulberry Leather, but I guess that is not possible. :(

With all the interesting two-tone combination interiors coming on the '08 Malibu, it'd be a shame for Cadillac to have a narrow interior color palette. A black dash with very dark red carpet, seats, and door trim inserts in black door trims would look great with wood or alumimum trim. I also like the Ebony and Linen color combo in the '08 Corvette. That would look good in the CTS as well.

I love the Black Cherry! :thumbsup:

But I'm fond of the Cashmere w/Cocoa accents interior with the Black Cherry (Titanium might be nice too).

2nd color pic would be Sunset Blue and then Thunder Gray Chromaflair (if it has a blue tint)

Both with Cashmere....

If they cancel Buick's Zeta sedan in the US... this may end up being my next car...

Black Cherry all the way.

I would like to see a chocolate brown interior.

About the Sunburst Orange, GM has paints in shifts certain, paints are offered to certain plants pertaining the vehicles they build, which is why cars that share platforms usually offer the same exact colors a la Deltas, W-bodies, GMT-900s and so forth, now being GM canceled Sunburst Orange on a whole it seems, they probably are not ready to bring the new Inferno Orange color to the plant that assembles the CTS. Also about these colors that travel from plant to plant each color hue is replaced, for instance, Laser Blue replaced Arrival Blue, however Laser Blue has run its course and has now been replaced by Imperial Blue, this Crystal Red has apparently replaced Sport Red.

No, Crystal Red replaced Red Jewel/Infrared and the fabulous Crimson Pearl Tintcoats, though some mainstream cars and trucks (Aura, Impala, Escalade to name a few) offer the Red Jewel/Infrared for 2008. How about more Red and Blue interiors?

BTW, that "Orange" CTS you saw on the Autoweek photos was the Crystal Red Tintcoat-looks like a Carmine Red type color-kind like 79U Ruby/Cardinal Red Metallic on the Saturn VUE/Chevy HHR, but a tintcoat color.
