    In the pictures the brown and orange look the same to me. I can wait to see the real difference.

      The orange is, I'm willing to bet, this Cadillac Blackwing color, Orange Blaze Metallic. I'd by this if I had to wait until 2022.

      Hypersonic Gray could be Cadillac's Satin Steel Metallic:

      The Brown? No idea.

      But except for the orange, sounds like more boring, dark colors. Yawn.

        The Grey and Silver are in the same family. My wife's new Satin Steel Metallic Avenir Envision looks very similar to the C8R's color. Depending on the lighting it looks darker and then a lot lighter. To me they both look very similar. Heck, the one salesman called it grey and another called it silver, go figure. LOL

          Not being able to see the new orange in person, I’m happy to have Sebring Orange. I was hoping for a light green or even a purple for 2022.

            Im not impressed with either of the three new colors, but that’s just one persons opinion. I was hoping for something brighter, neon green, maybe a chartreuse, more like the color of absinthe, etc, something really out of the box, but to me, these colors are kinda drab. Doesn’t mean they won’t look nice on your car, it just means I don’t think it’ll look nice on mine. 😄

              I'm out on a limb in this thread. My first choice would have been Zeus Bronze with the Natural interior. I've seen that combo in person and it (particularly a top-down HTC) looks freakin' awesome to me (disclaimer -- sunny day). But, I just sent my $$$$ to MM so that ain't happening. If the new "brown" has a similar deep gold metallic vibe like Zeus, I'm thrilled. If not, let's see the new Grey. "Plan B" is the Red Mist which also looks superb; it's just that something about adding $1K for a color choice rubs me the wrong way.

                For those commenting on the look of the new colors, we haven’t seen what they look like yet, all we know is their names. The photos in the original post (post #1) specifically say that they are using the 2021 colors in the photos because pictures of the new 2022 colors “are not yet available”.

                    Was really hoping for something in the green spectrum.... but this looks like 3 tweaks of 3 existing colors. (I'll admit that the new orange looks better than the old orange if the photos can be trusted. Still, I was hoping for a green...

                      That is the old orange you're looking at. 🙂 Looks exactly the same as it did in the configurator...

                        Wish they would offer that Cadillac Blackwing wheel on the Corvette!

                          Personal taste, but I did not get Zeus Bronze, and I don't understand why another brown was chosen. If trends continue, the new brown will again be the least popular color by a very large margin, and yes I have seen Zeus in person.
                          The greatest sound in the world is a Rolls Royce Merlin over 100 inches.

                            Kind of disappointing that they don't seem to be replacing the retired colors with anything really spectacular... I do like the orange a bit better, but it seems they could have gone a bit farther and more unique with their color palette.

                            That said, I still love my ELB and don't see anything in the projected 2022 lineup that would bump that out of 1st position choice if I was buying another.

                              These colors, like any need to be seen to be appreciated, or frowned upon.
                              I'm surprised at the brown.
                              2021 HTC on order with 2LT, front lift, msrc, npp, elb with two tone seats, and gray hash marks. September first delivery??

                                . The only orange C8 I ever saw was indoors and had no where near the depth of the orange Cadillac that’s pictured above.

                                And as far as I’m concerned the colors generated by the configurator are laughable. They get you in “the neighborhood”, but that’s about it. The black and the white are about the only 2 that are credible.
