GMC will be dropping Carbon Metallic and replacing it with "Carbon Black Metallic" for the 2008 model year. The new color comes with a premium paint charge of $85.

Cool...makes our Carbon Metallic somewhat rare then. If these were collector cars and we kept them for 30 years all original and low miles, we could sell them for big bucks at Barrett-Jackson! ;D

My last car, '02 Galant was Patriot Red Pearl...only made that color in 2002, changed the name and paint code slightly for other years. Of all 5 years of ownership, I NEVER saw another Patriot Red Pearl GTZ. Always the 4-cyl models...made me feel pretty darn special.

Any word on the silver grey that was available on the Envoy?

What is the source? Do you know why they are changing it already? Not sure what "Carbon Black Metallic" means. Is this just black? I am interested since I ordered a Carbon Metallic today! Sharp color.

It is referred to as a new "black" color. Good thing you got your order in since Carbon Metallic is facing an early build out date. Carbon Metallic will be built-out for the 2007 model year during the week of May 14th.

JimDandy, So you are saying that ALL carbon metallics will be completed by the week of May 14? It seems hard to believe that GM would accept a new order for carbon metallic if every open order must be filled by mid-May. It also seems too early to convert to 2008 models. Late-May and beyond will be 2007 models except carbon metallic? Just doesn't add up.

Anybody know the differnce between the new Carbon Black metalic and the current carbon metallic? Is it just a name change, not a color change?

My interpretation of available information is that no more Carbon Metallic will be built after the week of May 14.
