Stopped by the Denver service center today to help me decide which color to go with. It was my first time seeing all the colors in person. Got to say they all impressed except for the Midnight black. Which is odd because I typically love black on vehicles. Limestone and canyon red were different than I expected, in a very positive way.
However, I have officially narrowed my choices down to Rivian blue and white. Rivian blue has always spoke to me in the same way BMW’s Laguna Seca blue has. The white looks so clean and ties in with the black mountain interior so well.
I took pictures all from the same angle and tried my best to capture any flake in the paint. Forrest Green and El Cap definitely have the most flake and shimmer so well in the sunlight.
Outside of the Midnight black, I loved every color. This was after a fresh snow, so the black might have benefited from a wash.

I hope these pictures help.

Great pics and compilation! Definitely a lot of metal flake in El Cap Granite and Forest Green, I still flip between those two colors.

Thank you… those both look amazing in the sunlight. The El Cap looks good on the 20’s. The greys are similar but not exact. I love that Forrest green too… especially with a Forrest Edge interior 🤌🏼🤌🏼

Glacier white is surprisingly nice! Does it look like it has a bit of gray in it?

Sweet pics. Was sold on the blue from day 1 and my mind hasn’t changed. Limestone looks pretty sweet as well. Maybe red with black wheels. But blue is my choice.

No, it’s a stark white. There was a slight overcast.

Thank you for the closeups. Nice to see on trucks vs just the small swatches @ the Venice site.

We love the metalic sparkles so silver and forest green are our favorites at this point.

Another way to put it. Glad they put a little bit of grey to go with those metal flakes…

Launch Green is such a great color. And I’m starting to really like the red more than I’d thought.

Seeing Limestone up close actually makes me like it a bit less. I had hoped for a much less metallic effect.

FYI I’m coming from a TRD Pro in Voodoo Blue, which is devoid of metal flake. The color depth is eerie.

very cool, thanks for sharing.

do you think the limestone has white flake in it? wondering if thats why it tends to colorshift to the colors around it.
midnight seems to have multi-colored flakes (blue, green, yellow, red, white)

but the mis-alignment on some of those tailgates... yikes!

Yep. I'm definitely absolutely sold on Forest Green over Launch Green now.

I've only seen Launch Green in person in cloudy conditions or with a matte PPF wrap. I hadn't realized just how "dull" LG actually is. (I must admit it looks good with a matte wrap, though. The dullness helps it there.) But Forest? Seeing just how much flake is in there, I'm sold.

Any regrets with the TRD Voodoo blue? I love that color too. A little bit brighter than the Rivian blue imo, but similar. I have never owned a car with a “loud” color, so I’m curious.
