    New colours for 2012

    Just heard from the dealer that there are 2 new colours for 2012. MOCHA STEEL and OPULENT BLUE METALLIC.

    Not sure either sounds great to me but would love to see them before ordering in white.

    Opulent blue is nice. Caddies look gret in all the colors of the crest IMHO.

    Anyone ever locate photos of mocha steel? (wagon preferably)

    This dealer has a mocha steel wagon, but no pics (so it is being delivered)

    Looks like radiant silver to me. I thought it would've been darker than that.

    Found some Mocha Steel pics on a SRX:
    http://www.jerrystexas.com/web/vehic...os/1722882/#00

    Looks like a "mocha" (light brown) metallic in some light, and a gray "steel" metallic in other light.

    I think I like it better than Thunder Gray, but would like to see it on a wagon. Colors can look very different on different cars.

    Still wish they'd offer the midnight silver metallic that was on the 2011 Vagon at the NY auto show

    Re: New colours for 2012

    maybe it's just me, but when I see that color(mocha steel), my mind goes straight to a GMC truck, or Buick, or anything else that would classify as utilitarian or old-fashioned, sort of like the Chevy-gold. It may qualify as the only color I actually dislike. I'm not sure I want to say it's ugly, just the vibe it gives off is not something I would want to drive I suppose.

    I've seen mocha steel in real life and it looks darker than in the pics. Made me wish I bought my Denali in that color.

    The "Mocha Steel Metallic" color on the '2012 V-Sedan I think in my minds-eye will look great! We'll just have to wait for some actual photos to show up!

    the supersonic blue afaik was a special order car for gm execs and press shots. the closest you can get is blue diamond tricoat, and I've only seen a handful of pictures of a BDT Cts-v let alone see one in person.

    Hi Ben Greene,

    If you haven't already done so, you can scroll down and click the "Build Your Own CTS-V Sedan" link at the bottom of the following page, then you can see exactly how Mocha Steel Metallic would look on the 2012 CTS-V Sedan: http://www.cadillac.com/cts-v-luxury-sedan.html

    Hope this helps you visualize a bit more,
