    Not much changes for the entire Cadillac line up.

    That Majestic Plum Metallic better be some boring barely-tinted-silver or hideous bright magenta or gross raisin color.

    Because if it's a legitimate purple, I've ordered the wrong car and I need to get out of it.

    So they're keeping the CTS-V wagon another year! The new colors seem interesting, will be neat to see how they look in person.

    You already ordered a `14?

    Darn they are dropping that mustard color, lol. I kinda liked that. Well, looks like the coupes and wagons are gonna be back for 2014, I was kinda hoping 2013 was gonna be the last year, figured that would make my car more rare and it would hold it's value better. Oh well.

    Anyone know where there are any pictures to show how Red Obsession differs from Crystal Red?

    I ordered a 2013 black wagon two weeks ago. But purple is my color. And real purple is a rare thing on a car.

    Just curious, have you seen a V with it? I have not and I'd like to. That Harvest gold (yes it reminds me of 70s appliances, but not in a bad way) is a 1-year color and will probably be the rarest of the bunch.

    Looking at the changes, I'm happy with my decision to go OB. I would like to see the new colors though, it all sounds promising.

    Actually at least in this pic it does not look too bad. Like you said, a one year color and rare, I don't believe it is available on the V's though, just the regular CTS.

    Phantom Gray Metallic. I wonder if that is the color on the new '14 CTS that was in all the press photos.

    Majestic Plum Metallic: I went to my dealer and saw his color chip and brochure summarizing 2014 changes. The color chip just looks like a dark warm gray; I had to catch it at exactly the right angle to see a purple tint to it.

    The "photos" of a CTS and ATS look like grabs from the configurator, where you're not sure if it's over-airbrushed or flatly-rendered or just color-corrected within an inch of its life. In these it's a silver with a pronounced warm purple hue. Closer in brightness to silver than to thunder gray. If you remember the 1998 Corvette medium purple pearl, the Cadillac color is more obviously purple -- about the same saturation as glacier blue, I suppose.

    A one-inch-square paint chip and photoshopped image on a cheap LCD screen aren't much to go on, especially since they didn't look alike. I think I'll have to see an actual car in daylight to get a read I can trust, but it didn't wow me. It's an interesting color I haven't seen before, but like all "colored silvers" it seems engineered to minimize the effect of dust, which my brain translates into "always looks dirty."

    So it's not the deep purple drama I dream of, but it might be really classy. Or it might be another weird experiment that doesn't quite hit the mark for more than a dozen people, like mocha and glacier.

    Did you see any of the other paint chips? Did the dealer say when ordering opens for the 14s?

    Phantom Gray Metallic is less green, but not warm enough to call pewter. Seems about the same level of sparkle as Opulent Blue -- but it's damn hard to say anything definitive about chips that tiny. I don't remember anything about the red at all, it just didn't register.

    My order may be bumped to MY2014. They will learn tomorrow if that's really true and if so what it means. They might even tell me.

    Thanks for the information. I'm interested to hear if your order gets bumped, because that means mine will probably as well. I'm intrigued by the new gray. It's hard to order a car based off colors I've not seen (stealth blue vs phantom gray) and know that I've made the right choice!

    I'm surprised you two haven't gotten build dates yet - I thought we all ordered about the same time (end of March)?
