    majestic plum or phantom gray

    Is this color the new majestic plum or phantom gray? I see some purple, but it is also gray. I like the profile shot, and am thinking about that color on a 14 wagon. These pics came from http://gmauthority.com/blog/2013/05/...rpo-central/#/

    Which color are you thinking about on a wagon, plum or gray?

    Probably gray, but depends on the purple.

    Those pictures don't look like TG to me, but could be. The 14 LaCrosse apparently has the same plum color available, and I think this is it. If so, the color isn't working for me, but would like to see it in person.

    The new gray looks amazing in pictures. I'd drive it in a second.

    I'm trying to decide between the two colors as well until I came across the following URL: http://media.cadillac.com/content/me...agon/2014.html

    Phantom Gray Metallic, Mocha Steel Metallic, Red Obsession Tintcoat and Majestic Plum Metallic

    I'm not sure if this applies to //Vagon but Mocha Steel Metallic sounds like a yummy Starbucks drink

    Majestic plum does exist for the 2014 Vs. I posted pics of them last week.

    To to OP, go Phantom Gray. It is only offered on the 2014 V and it is a really nice color. It is more of an accurate charcoal gray. I am ordering my V Coupe in the Phantom Gray next month. Majestic plum looks violet in the sun. I wasn't too fond of the color.

    Here are pics of the majestic plum V Wagon and V Coupe I posted in another thread. The Phantom Gray is clearly much nicer!

    Yeah that is Thunder Gray. Phantom Gray is more gray and a little darker than TG. I've seen it in person and it is very nice!

    I had a 2010 V Sedan in Thunder Gray and while it was nice, it had a green tint to it. I would call Thunder Gray a "green gray" and the Phantom gray is a true and accurate "charcoal gray." Phantom gray is darker than Thunder gray and is a really nice color. They should have called Phantom Gray, Stealth Gray. It looks very stealth fighter-ish in color.

    My 2014 V Coupe will be Phantom Gray once my order gets placed.

    The plum looks awful. I do like the Mocha Steel Metallic. I think that's what I'd get if I was ordering tomorrow.

    I do not see the plum on the Cadillac web site for 2014. I may order the black diamond.
