As in out-the-door, with TT&L? If so, that's a great deal. If that's just the sales price, still a good deal.
Of those colors you mentioned, I would go blue for "prettiest" or pewter for easiest to keep clean.
But I have to plug my Texas Burnt (sunset) orange, too.
Me? I got Black/tan. Black is just gorgeous (when clean).
Good luck with purchase.

deliver it for a plane ticket home. I haven't seen an Orange one? Is that really one of the colors? I saw a Green one over the weekend that was a different Green than I've seen before. Lighter, more of a Moss color. I haven't been on a lot in awhile, must be they have some new colors. Other than Black or White (not on your list) I'd have to go with the Pewter. I really like the color and the cladding is more subdued, blends in as opposed to stands out.

SO Metallic is an available color. txyank must have seen a Northface Edition, available in Sage Green.

I have saw Avs of every color available when I bought mine. They all pretty much match up to what they show at CHEVY web site for the AV.
The Northface Sage Green color is nice but I did not need the NF package or want to pay for it either. Now the seats are really nice but I was afraid of the stitching coming loose over time of getting in and out.
If I remember correctly all the colors have some metallic in the paint except the BLACK.
The Sunset Orange IMO only looked good at dusk when the sun was setting. I just did not like it any other time and yes I went to a bunch of dealerships at all hours to look at the AV before I bought mine.
BTW mine is the Light Metallic Pewter. Looks clean and I find the gray of the cladding blends in better.

BLACK RED & WHITE are not metallic.
Man go look at the Chevy web site! The Olympic Av is really nice looking! Very nice!

Txyand1...how 'bout a bus ticket I've been searching a ticket from Springfield, MO...expensive to Austin. I agree with the Pewter logic....
I've narrowed it down to Victory Red (named after Nebraska Red) & Pewter...for the ease of care and less contrast with the cladding. Blue met is the coolest but they all look dusty on the lots. Orange is...well orange, enough said...sorry Z28 but no self respecting college student should wear orange to play football. Now if I can just get down there...maybe Santa will load it up and leave it in the garage...

Ouch! I think we still own NU in the Big XII (3-1). Just take care of business with Miami and keep the Sears trophy in the Big XII.
So are you buying from Capitol?

I have the same truck at 3 dealers...Austin (Capital), Lufkin and Durant Ok...not sure if I can buy anything in Sooner country...might be cursed. Cap has the best price...26,891 (31,800 msrp). BTW did they add any fees to the sale price? I just can't figure out how to get down there to get it. Hope to have it in the garage by Christmas. BTW my brother-in-law is a big wig at our huge Chevy Dealer in town and the best he could get on this rig is 28,400...and he is 4th in command! GO BIG XII...See you next year UT.

in Arlington TX, had an ad this past weekend for $7500 off a AV stickered at $37K!! I think I will try and call them to see if there is a catch.
