Local Color: Unusual Paint Hues at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show

Check out our gallery of eye-catching colors seen at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show

CAS 2020Every year when the Chicago Auto Show rolls into town, we make it a point to roam the entire show floor on the lookout for interesting factory paint colors. And, we’ve made it an annual tradition to work up a quick gallery of the eye-catching hues we find. If you’re tired of fifteen shades of gray, check out the pics below.

We’ve organized these snapshots as best we could in the order of the rainbow, with a couple of intriguing outliers at the end. Some of these colors are eye-searing, some are subtle. Some are on gigabucks exotic cars and spendy sporting machines, some are on budget-conscious mainstream vehicles. Some are brand-new for 2020, others have been around for at least a couple years (and may have been featured in one of our previous galleries). A couple are available only on limited-edition special models, but most are regular-production colors… though some of those are extra-cost options. However, all of these hues are a heckuva lot more interesting than plain old silver, white, or beige, don’t you think?
