Opinions on Summit White

Looking for thoughts on Summit White as a truck color.

Thanks!

I had a Summit White Camaro and it was a sharp color. It was great at hiding dirt unless you got up close to it which was huge improvement over my previous black car (never again).
My only hesitation with it on a truck would be that it's a common fleet color. All the local auto parts stores and power/gas utility vehicles are white. I think as long as you don't get a WT with all the black plastic it'll keep it from blending in with the crowd.

It looks good with red or black accents/graphics etc. But is there really any other color but red? lol!

I just purchased a 2017 Z71 diesel crew cab in summit white. I went back and forth (many times) on several colors including Cyber Gray, white, silver and black. But I went with white and very happy.

As mentioned above, with some black contrast it really pops. I did the black bow tie (easy plastidip), black bed liner and tint on front side windows matching rear. Also just added black midnight wheels for even more contrast. But it looked great with stock Z71 wheels also. I posted a couple pics in my garage, will take better pics once it stops raining and she gets her first bath.

White is the second worst color to keep clean over black.

I am not a fan of white as they remind me of the Gas Company trucks but I did see a Z71 last week with black wheels and the black light bar and it really was good looking.


Being a solid color it is easy to touch up too.

Yes, why it has to be a late release ticks me off.

White looks like crap on economy cars, but it looks great on trucks. Go figure! Always liked the clean white truck with tinted windows look. It is a classic. Cooler in the summer too.

I went with the Bronze alloy with Cocoa/dune interior on my Canyon, it just spoke to me for some reason. Have had black and white trucks in the past, trying something different.

As I work for my city gov. being white was one of my concerns. There are white chevy full size trucks around me everyday. I guess I'd blend right in, LOL. But the white can pop with the right accents, especially black & red. My dealer has a Z71 for a decent price. Decisions, decisions.

I hate white. All everyone seems to want is white, black, or some shade of non color grey. Stand out and buy a truck that is a proper color. :)

Choosing my Canyon SLT and options was easy but, I struggled so hard at choosing a colour and after nearly a year of ownership, I am still uncertain. I think the white looks great with the SLT chrome which takes it out of the work truck look category. Colorados with black accents look good too. I still don't like the white in bright sunlight. At low light and nightime though when the other colours start to disappear, it is without equal.

I wish the "new" orange was out. I've heard it's more metallic.

Here in Arizona, sun reflecting white with dark tint is the official vehicle color.

The tint and black accents really pop on a white truck. If you don't get Nerf bars/steps, you need to paint the body seam under the rocker panels to hide the seam.

If you are talking Burning Hot Metallic that looks Orange I saw one last weekend at the dealer. It is bright.


I know what truck I want but color is my issue too. I wanted Red Hot on a ZR2 and as for now it is not available. I checked out 4 other colors and will go Cajun Red. I will be ok with it but really wanted the Red hat.


Red has been the best color I ever had as it is easy to keep clean and touch up and looks good on a truck with black trim.

Was it a 17? Or a left over 16? It was my understanding it wasn't going to be out until late summer/fall.

Yeah, accenting with black and red is what I've done so far. Black bowties, tinted windows, and red recovery hooks. Love my Summit White Colorado!

Get a vehicle and color most everybody doesn't have: Colorado Z-71 in orange, Colorado ZR2 in green or Canyon Denali in mineral.

I am not sure but it looks like the one in the Brochure.

It was Orange with a lot of metallic flake in it. To be honest it was the only one I have ever seen.


It looked new and was in the service department. It appeared like they had just installed a rear sliding window in it.
