    Default New Color Called Himalayan Gray...

    Members don't see this ad
    I was at one of my local dealerships trying to determine if I could live with Parisian Gray or Silver when I walked past a 3.8 G80 that looked different.
    Read the window sticker and it said "Himalayan Gray"....

    Apparently Genesis is going to phase out Empure State Gray and Hinalayan replaces it.

    Interesting. Nothing on the Genesis web site (at least under the G80) but found these on the web. The lightest gray is Parisian, next darkest is Empire State, then Himalayan, assuming the pictures were labeled correctly by the dealer that had them on the web.

    I like all three but I personally prefer the darker grays.

    More Himalayan Gray. There actually are pictures on the Genesis website, but not in the "build and price your car" section.

    Nice find. I noticed that Himalayan Gray is one of the few colors listed for the upcoming G80 Sport. I was wondering how that would look.

    Me too. I always lean towards silver and gray cars.
    My issue right now is, the two dealers I've been working with don't have access to an Empire State Gray G80 with black interior.
    All the ESG color cars have beige interiors.

    I do like Parisian Gray, but in certain light situations it has a blue hue which I don't care for.
    I also like silver, but if I go with the silver G80, it changes what I was planning to do with mods. I was planning on getting Empire State Gray and blacking out the chrome trim the same way Audi does with the "black Optic" package.

    If I get Silver, I would leave the chrome trim as it is.

    Agreed. In the grey scale my faves lie at the extreme ends - a frosty pale silver or a dark charcoal grey.

    Greeting~~ Just Joined and Just purchased the Himalayan Gray G80 with black interior here in Ca that the discussion was about. I Was actually looking for a black or Empire State Gray, this car was only on the lot for a few days, looks almost like Empire State Gray, can't believe they will keep both colors, my guess is they will drop the Empire State Gray in the near future the color chip in the sales brochure is almost a perfect match for the Himalayan gray, they seem to be going with and leaning more towards different exotic/worldly color names/schemes.

    Does it have a tiny bit of blue tinge to it? Some of the pictures I have seen look slightly that way....just can't tell. NOT like the Patagonia however.

    No, it's very much a dark metallic grey. Same tone as Empire State, just a shade or two darker. Here are some shots I took:
