With so many White Diamond on the road do you think it will hold it's value when it comes to trading in the truck? They seem to be a dime a dozen. Just where I live there has to be 4 white Diamonds in a 3 block area. Every where I look you see white diamond. If this wasn't a color option what other color would you have gotten? Also do you think this color is worth the 1000.00 dollar upgrade?....Sami

White Diamond is a 'true' Cadillac color. It makes a statement. It's $1000 extra b/c of the 3 stage paint process.

I think it stands to reason that since more people bought WD trucks when new, then more people will buy them when used, just don't expect to sell it for a premium.

To answer your questions. My other choice of color if White Diamond wasn't available would have been Blue Chip (it is not available in the EXT or ESV models) but since White Diamond is available that was my choice and was worth every penny for that color.

Diamond White will get you more on a dealer trade-in and it will blue book higher. However paint color is still a personal choice if a buyer likes black they'll buy black...it they like white, they'll buy white.

In addition to a higher blue book price...diamond white paint does "age" better - Which will allow you to ask for more $$ when selling your truck.

I am very happy with the WD paint color, very easy to keep claen and looking good, I liked the sand color that they stopped a few years ago, that would my second choice because it's even easier to keep clean

As mentioned in some of the previous posts, color is each persons preferrence and...
I've always had and liked Black as my first choice with White Diamond second.
I don't think the silver or the other colors do the Cadillac justice.
Where I am there are mostly Black ones that I see.
I considered the White Diamond because it is a really nice paint with the pearl in it but I went with Black.
The other day though, I saw an EXT with the White Diamond paint but it had all Gold Emblems and what a difference...definitly NICE.
There was a nice contrast with White Diamond and Gold Emblems that's not there with the chrome emblems
I will probably get the White Diamond with Gold emblems next time around.
Just some thoughts.
Regards.. Frank
