2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion Discussion, New metallic plum color? in Cadillac CTS Second Generation Forum - 2008-2013; The color is listed new for 2014 Sportwagon, but not shown on the cobbled up Cadillac.com web pages that are ...
What? Are we driving Mopars now? Or has the Government combined both of the bailout auto manufacturers into one gigantic Government cluster funk?
Majestic Plum Metallic seems to be a similar color to the former Black Cherry, which was killed in 2010. It is nowhere close to the Mopar Barney purple. I owned a Crystal Red Tintcoat (replaced by Red Obsession Tincoat for 2014 but probably the same color). There was something about Black Cherry that made me wish I had bought that instead of the red. It's nice to see them revive a similar color, as other luxury manufacturers appear to offer some form of purple-metallic hue as well.
Thanks for the photo. All the representations on my computer have not been that great so I was hoping to finally see a photo of one. Seeing as how my last two cars before my Caddy were similar colors to the metallic plum, allow me to give my take: Better than I've seen in representations, but not as good as I was hoping. Not saying I wouldn't own it, but I'd be very hesitant about resale since it is very taste specific. For me, the best color car I ever owned was a Black Cherry Micah RX-8. ALWAYS got compliments on the color. My dream CTS coupe would have that color, nonetheless I'm very happy with Crystal Red.
Automobile(s): None at the moment. Maybe some day an SRX!

I found a picture here on page 32: http://www.cadillac.com/content/dam/...alog_FINAL.pdf. It may not be as good as somedaycts’ picture but I hope this helps! Thanks for all the feedback in this thread too. I will be sure to pass it along. Thank you very much for your time.
