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:
