Damn, they're getting rid of all the VW-ey colors -- Glacier Blue for the Lucerne, and now Blue Granite and Majestic Amethyst for the Cobalt. The only reason why Cobalt sedan looks decent is because of Blue Granite. Black tie radio and new steering wheel are good and desperate improvements, though. Too bad they're replacing alloys with steelies and molded covers.

I think you're in the minority on that, hence the deletion :AH-HA_wink:

Certainly seems accurate based on what actually has been moving off dealer lots.

LS is now the strippo model. One that dealers use to get people in the door, with low price. They then push the LT, LTZ, SS, or bigger cars.

Yes, but even the strippo model has to have a few things....

You want to have a few opitions for those on a budget...

I think there will be a rear revision of the sedan to match the coupe. I remember hearing that 2007 is a MCE year...and with the Pontiac G5 I would imagine the sedan will have something closer to the coupe's rear.

I agree-the Blue Granite (aka Stealth Grey/Slatestone) Cobalt's are plentiful around here-I don't think I've seen a Majestic Amethyst around here-I'd love to see one though. I miss Glacier Blue and Sport Red Metallic-two of my favorites-the Maroon (Bordeaux Red) is okay, but I don't like it as much. And why is Chevy insistant on replacing aluminum wheels with plastic-steel on the midlevel (LT-the former LS) Cobalt and Malibu levels? Its plain stupid!

I was wondering about the wheels too..

But I've noticed quite a few Cobalt owners change their wheels anyways...

Could be more for the custom crowd....

If they lowered the price a few bucks for the lack of AWs on the LT, that would be ok....(or added side airbags or something to that...)

The Cobalt I have is in Blue Granite Metallic. My wife and I like the color enough that it was one of our main criteria for the car.

Naturally the cool new radio comes the next model year after I get the car. I like my setup though, what with the "brushed silver" plated receiver.

Aesthetically, I wonder what else the 07 Cobalt has in store...

Where you see that?

In the picture, it looks like the trim is now some sort of graphite plastic.....and the center stack appears graphite/black now as opposed to all the radio and hvac controls being silver....
