Why doesn't GM produce another Gray color?

    Ford, Ram, and all other automakers make a gray color in their trucks, and yet GM is giving us a new funky name color each year. It's almost like they try to be cute and create a new color each year instead of offering something the customer wants.

    What the heck?

    Same reason they don't put a diesel in a suburban. Or why they dropped the Camaro line for so many long.
    They get out of touch with thier cusomer base.

    You are mistaken. GM as well as other do offer gray! You just got to wait for it. Shows up in "Patches" due to primer failure flaking off the paint and vola you got gray. Soon turns to "rust" color: faster in some locations than others.

    Gray is NOT an exciting color, hard to see in snow country, and not on my list of a colors I would look at even the first time. IMO not a popular color and a complete turn off as it reminds me of paint problems...

    LOL. I do agree they need more colors, but I like the Chevy Deep Ocean Blue.
