2008 Buick colors

6 posts in this topic

Have you seen the color chips for the new Buicks, particularly for the LaCrosse?

Disappointing.

The Dark Mocha is basically a dark root beer brown and not a sable type shade.

The Midnight Blue is almost black.

The Gold Mist looks like a urine sample.

The 2 reds are pretty mainstream; that is, no deep burgundy or a "cool" shade like Mulberry seen on Cadillacs and SUVs in years past

Lastly, the absence of a Light Quartz equivalent is bad news for a brand that sells well in light blues.

Overall, I find the color palette too dark. Do you agree?

I thinkMOST new color paletes are too dark, which is partially why I stuck up

for that raspberry-bubblegum shade on the cobalt, not very adult but it's nice

to see SOMETHING other than dark blue.

Colors on cars have been disappointing for years. They are too neutral and car companies do not offer enough colors to give a wide choice. The colors on the 08 Buicks aren't anything special. I do like the brown though. That's at least a new color, even if it is a new neutral. I think the brown leathers are very nice as well.

See them in person before you judge. I wanted a dark blue car, but when I saw midnight blue metallic in person, it was a lot lighter than I thought.

From the standpoint of our color selection being too dark overall yes I think they should bring back colors like Silver-blue ice metallic or the Sapphire blue, but my hat off to them for bringing a lighter red to the Lacrosse. I think the Dark Mocha is a great color on the right car. I have yet to see it on an Lacrosse Super yet but hopefully our first one will arrive next week. We have a Lucerne CXL with it and it's not bad looking it but it looks great on a CXS with the extra chrome. The Gold Mist to me is the best shade of beige we've ever had it's been a great seller so far.

True. This is the best color for the car, IMHO.
