[PICS] Shadow Gray and Elkhart Lake Blue Exterior Colors Introduced for 2019 Corvettes


The Corvette Team held their annual new model rollout seminar on Friday morning at the National Corvette Museum’s annual Bash event. Because of the quirky schedule with the 2019 model year, most of the information for the model year has already been made public.

But Chevrolet did have something new to share this week and that was two new exterior colors that will be coming on 2019 Corvettes.

We came across a chip of the new Shadow Gray exterior earlier this week, and sure enough, that color will be replacing the popular Watkins Glen Gray. The new blue exterior color is called Elkhart Lake Blue and it will be replacing Admiral Blue.

Here are the rollout dates for the two new colors:

GJI Shadow Gray replaces G7Q Watkins Glen Gray

  • No more allocations of G7Q Watkins Glen Gray for ZR1.
  • Last day to order G7Q Watkins Glen Gray is May 17th.
  • Last day of WGG production is June 18th.
  • GJI Shadow Gray first order date is June 28th.
  • First day of production for Shadow Gray is August 6th.

G7S Elkhart Blue replaces GTR Admiral Blue

  • Last day to order GTR Admiral Blue is June 28th.
  • Last day of Admiral Blue production is August 13th
  • G7S Elkhart Blue first order date is August 30th.
  • First day of production for Elkhart Blue is October 1st.

Chevrolet did not have fully painted cars to view, but we got to see two quarter panels painted with the new colors. Once we got the panels outside in the bright sun, we got a better idea of how they look. The photos of the Shadow Gray also show a smaller style buck painted in Watkins Glen Gray for comparison.

We mentioned the popularity of both colors and earlier in the 2019 Seminar, Harlan Charles shared the production numbers for exteriors. With over 7,000 Corvettes produced since 2019 production started, Watkins Glen Gray is the third most popular color with 15% while Admiral Blue was 7th with 5% of production:

  1. These colors both look amazing. Think Corvette knocks it out of the park here. Could you confirm if both colors are metallic? Also, does the grey appear to be a bluish gray? Are these 2 colors available somewhere else in GM, past or present, under different names?

  2. Both are very nice, but I don’t see why Admiral Blue would not be kept in addition since it is a much darker blue. The grays seem similar in shade – in the pics, anyway.

  3. Elkhart Blue looks too boy racer (reminds me of a WRX). I agree that Admiral is classier and will be missed.
    Shadow Gray is interesting because it’s new, but I don’t believe it will sell. Nice initially but won’t wear well.

  4. Why not a better red ! Want a candy apple metallic, would put my order in now.
    Too much gray and blue!

  5. I’d like to see a real dark blue like Ferrari or even darker such as Packard used in the ’30’s.

  6. Does “occult orange”, or “ethereal emerald”, or maybe even “mystic magenta” float your boat? LOL

  7. Yes! There is probably a tank of “Night Race Blue” somewhere in the warehouse – a great dark blue.
