Here's a pic from http://www.enclaveforum.net showing a Red Jewel on an overcast day - I'm fairly certain the one you found is the same.

I saw and sat in one of the Red Jewel with Ebony did not get a chance to drive it.

I'm not an Ebony person never had black interior and everytime I get in one all I see is work to keep it lookking sharp.

I actually like purple, but this is too girly pink/purple. I was hoping for more of a deep purple grape, or a real deep red wine color. Something that actually made the car look rich, this looks terrible. Maybe seeing it in person it would be better, but the initial pics don't look classy at all.

:puke: I REALLY don't like that AT ALL. The car OR the color. It looks like a PT Cruiser on steroids. Is that really an Enclave?

(because that smily groses me out i deleted it from your quote)


It looks like a PT Cruiser thats why i hate it. I cant belive Tiger Woods likes it. it just dosent fit that young of person or type of person. He seems more fit to drive a corvette or porsche etc.

Tiger "likes it" because Buick pays him in sponsorship $$! He has to "like it"! I don't mean to offend any Enclave owners, but I am going to say what I think. Yuck. That's why the world is full of options - that way, we all find something we like...and I prefer my Acadia!!

ps. I hate that emoticon, too, but that's the only one I could find to express my dislike!

I have to laugh, I showed my husband the picture, for the color and he said, "Wow! It looks like a cross between a PT Cruiser and a minivan!" ::)

I personally like the PT Cruiser. It's cute. :sunny: Like the Acadia better!! :thumb:

Everyone, this is not what the color is going to look like. This is just the Red Jewel coat taken with a camera that doesn't have its whitebalance set. If you look at the chrome it is blue. Don't push the panic button they would never change the color to purple. All 3 Lambda platforms have the same colors. Here is a link to what is really looks like:

I thought that the picture of the enclave was a Red Jewel and not the new one because the new color is not even offered on the enclave!

The G8 is a rebadge of a Holden car from Austrailia...not that there is anything wrong with that (have to get my Seinfeld quotes in somewhere).

The V8 G8 might be a tough sell with gas prices the way they are. In fact, I have a feeling that the US automakers will be discounting many of their muscle cars once gas gets to $4 a gallon...oh wait...it's $4 a gallon already in some parts of the country. I really think GM missed the boat (yet again) by producing non fuel-efficient cars while their foreign competitors already have a full lineup of fuel efficient vehicles.

I absolutely love the G8 though...so the V6 is something that I would be interested in...even though it would be less fun to drive...but reality has to set in at some point...my kids will be going to college at some point.

My wife found a new job to practice medicine...unfortunately it's a 35 minute drive (vs. her 5 minute drive from her old job). However, they are going to pay off the remainder of her medical school loans...so that will save us about $100,000 (not including interest)...so a new car may be in the future for me...just waiting for a sweet deal.

Actually, my original reply to this thread said this was red jewel taken in poor lighting conditions. I guess people didn't believe me ;)

Dark Crimson Metallic will be available on the Enclave. It is not shown on the web yet, but is shown in the Enclave brochure as "Late Availability".
