    Is the Red a cherry red or orange'ish?

    My choice was between the Black Raven and White. Went with the Black and Caramel color. Love it, but after 10 seconds is starts to show dirt. Part of my weight loss plan for the next few years includes keeping Raven clean. Strongly recommend the caramel interior.

    It is not a deep brown caramel. I would say it is a light caramel. Wouldn't call it gold however. Pics can be deceiving, but this fairly accurately represents the color. http://gtcarlot.com/data/Cadillac/AT...-72402368.html

    I have a 2013 Crystal Red Tintcoat with ebony interior. I'd say that in full sunlight it is as close to the old hotrodder's bright candy apple red as you might get. It's not orangish at all and is a much brighter red than the earlier years' Red Jewel Tintcoat. That earlier color is a darker more maroon type color when compared side by side. The crystal red tintcoat is dazzling in the full sunlight where you get the full effect of the metallic flakes. But note that in low light or in the shade the metallic doesn't show and it takes on a little darker duller hue.

    Very accurate IMHO. Crystal Red was always in the top 3 choices for me, I'm a clean freak and the silver is so easy to keep perfect, but I always keep Cyrstal Red as an option if I get an ATS and give my wife the SRX that she keeps hinting at.

    Re: HELP??? Red or White?

    From what I've "heard", white is the most popular car color so it might help in a retail sale. However, beware tri-coat paints like the Platinum-Ice White. They are virtually impossible to match if you get a ding. I got a door ding from some inconsiderate soul and took my SRX to a touch-up specialist. He said he would not attempt a touch up due to the difficulty in matching the tri-coat paint. He would have to repaint the entire door. I told him just to do the best he could with the touch up and not to repaint the entire door.

    The red may be tri-coat for all I know. In any event, tri-coat paints are hard to match for touch ups. Plus, they cost more.
