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/2013/05/2014-cadillac-cts-coupe-cts-v-coupe-get-a-few-changes-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/media/us/en/cadillac/vehicles/cts_sport_wagon/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 ;)

I don't see the majestic plum being offered for 2014 V's.

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!

Thundergray

Thundergray was discontinued at the end of the 2013 model year which was June of 2013. Phantom Gray is the new Gray for the 2014 model year, and is the only gray currently being offered on the 2014 V.

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.

Majestic plum is on the site. It should be. They are still building 2014 Vs. Mocha Steel was only for 2012 and a very short run. The mags are wrong on the Mocha Steel being offered on 2014 Vs. Only Red Obsession, Majestic Plum and Phantom Gray are new for 2014.

Can you tell me where on the Cadillac web site? I looked under V's, and then I went to the color selection.
EDIT !!
I see plum under the Vagon, but NOT the sedan.

I really liked the pictures of a Mocha Steel V coupe GM-4-LIFE posted here and then realized it was because it reminded me of Jim Rockford's '77 Firebird. If you know that reference, we are probably in the same age group. :)

I saw the plum today on a 2014 CTS. Just washed and waxed, ready for delivery. I have mixed feelings about it. It's very unique, and different, but not a must have color. The black diamond is a tad prettier. I'm not sure I would order the plum. Some angles, it looks drab.

Majestic Plum is not available on the Sedan. Only the Vagon, and Coupe.

After more digging, I found out that V Sedans can no longer be ordered. Only V Coupes and V Wagons can until April 17, 2014.

I would like to apologize to you, personally.

Sorry for sending you on a wild goose chase.

I was relying on info from GM Corporate and they were wrong.
