Seems I am one of the few folks here that has one this color on order! But if anyone sees one or has photos (besides the Feb. MOtor Trend issue), could you post them or the link? Would love to see as many as I can before it comes! Thanks

Finally, someone else who ordered this color. I think it's going to be fantastic don't you? We ordered ours just a couple weeks ago, so you'll have yours sooner! Let us know what you think!

I think it's great. My friend that works in the plant said that it changes somthing like 3 different colors, bettween a "wispy blue" to "light gold" (duh) and then also a white. I'll will definitly let you know and post the pictures when it get here. It has been scheduled for production, so hopfully soon.

I'm just hoping it's not stuck on the interstate somewhere in this blizzard in northern Indiana!!! Wouldn't it figure - get this close and a blizzard hits!!!

Etgus here. Thanks everyone. Congrats on your cars, and I look forward to seeing pictures if you get time! I'm in southern MIchigan, so Northern Indiana isn't that far. So hopefully, mine's in the works soon too!

I saw the brown one at a dealer today. I was just driving by, and it sure looked nice. Not sure what the official color name it, but it was a lighter color.

Hi Elgmom...Congrats on your car. It looks beautiful! 8) The color looks a bit lighter than the ones in Motor Trend. Is it just the bright sunshine in the picture or is it actually a lighter blue than M-T??

It really depends on the light. I was just noticing in the garage a little bit ago that is did look a little darker. This is definitely a color that changes with the light. However, IMO very classy! I am hoping that it will be an easy one to keep clean!

I first saw an Acadia in a car wash two weeks ago and it happened to be in Blue-Gold and it was the color, being so unique and awesome that really grabbed my attention and made me say "What is this?". Personally, it's my favorite color for the Acadia. Of course, little did I know, my husband was already planning on trading in his Envoy for one, so without discussing it before hand were both on the same page as far as what we would be looking at for our next set of wheels. Since we didn't have time to wait, we had to take the color choice on the lot (picking up ours tomorrow morning - like you, in the messy snow :( ).Thanks for posting - and I can personally say, as nice as the pix are - they still don't even do the color justice until you see it. The car looks so classy and is a head turner in this very understated yet "notice me" color! Once the weather clears up and you can take more pix, love to see 'em!

Cheers,

JJ

That looks really classy elgmom! Thanks for posting the pics. I have a feeling when my wife sees them, that's going to be the color she wants.

So jealous. Loks good. Pics don't do it justice at all.

I can imagine it looks darker in real life. Need some night pics.

SO, as I had originally posted on the other Acadia forum, all can now see that it's exactly the same color as used on the Malibu, G6, and Aura. I knew that all along, but others didn't believe it, based on things like the bad MT pics. Lower light, it looks bluer, and brighter light it looks more silver-gold with a blue tint.

That said, great color, and looks awesome on the Acadia's lines.

ELGMOM, its etgus here! Thank you so much for posting the pics! It's a real eye opener! ::) I'm the one who started this thread. And I was the the first one to vote for this color in the poll!! I was surprised but worried, thinking, maybe the color was a mistake! Especially since I had not seen it in person before we ordered it. (like most everyone!) Now I see there are plenty of folks who appreciate this color! Still waiting for mine! I'm glad you are so happy with yours!
