    Post New color options for the Cascada



    This fall, Buick will expand the Cascada’s color palette by adding more options based on customer feedback and advanced color trending analysis. Building on a proven color strategy, Buick will add three new exterior colors and two new convertible tops and expand the Sport Touring Dark Effects Package with two additional exterior colors, enhancing customers’ ability to express their personal style on the road.

    Buick’s three new jewel-toned exterior colors — Rioja Red Metallic, Dark Moon Blue Metallic and Carrageen Metallic — align with customer preferences and color trends showing up globally in other industries, including interior design and fashion.

    “Color is back,” says Catherine Black, lead designer of Buick’s Color and Trim Studio. “While 80 percent of the exterior colors purchased globally are neutrals — black, silver or grey — many customers are starting to move away from these neutral tones and have an appetite for entirely different colors like dark navy and maroon.” In a segment with limited options, Cascada combines luxury features and additional on-trend color options at an attainable price to give style-conscious buyers more reasons to reconsider Buick.

    Nice, but why did it take so long? Isn't the Buick Cascada build alongside the Opel Cascada? No?

    I've only seen a few Cascadas on the road, and personally I dig this little car. Its quite striking in person.

    You could say that about everything to do with the Cascada.
    I'd probably be driving one today if they hadn't endlessly procrastinated about bringing it over.
    After awhile I just gave up on it ever coming and bought something else.

    So how much more are they going to charge for these colors that the car should have had from the start?

    Not a bad looking car at all. There's one in my neighborhood. Perfect car for a beach community.

    Red is a good addition, but really just the typically unimaginative GM color palette. Why not something bold, like a more vivid green (but not that obnoxious color they've offered on the Camaro), orange, maybe even purple. If you want to attract a younger buyer, maybe ditch the staid colors. At 7,000 units a year, this isn't exactly a risk.
    Drives a 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe and a 1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA.

    In the past, I've had a 5th gen Camaro, a CTS sedan and coupe, two 3rd gen Firebird Formulas, a convertible 4th gen Trans Am, a Reatta, a couple of Monte Carlos, an Avenger coupe, a couple of Cavalier hatchbacks, a Saturn SC1, and a Cherokee.

    I'm surprised orange and a dark green are available on Equinox...

    I get tired of the ultra conservative palette and when they do go bold it disappears after only a year or so.
