Your trucks look great.

Has anyone seen one of these next to a cyber gray truck?
Looking for opinions on the difference in the colors, how much darker, any hue tones.
Hard to tell from pictures, some pics of the graphite metallic appear to have a slight dark blue hue.

In certain light my truck has a green hue, I'll try & notice if I see any blue.

This was actually my first choice of color when shopping for my truck.
It was very hard to find the matching color with all the options and prices I wanted even in the big metro DFW area.
So I settled for the black though.

I compared them next to each other in full sun on my dealers lot. The Graphite has a darker base than Cyber Grey, but more metallic, which makes it appear lighter in the sun and gives it a blueish green pearlescent iridescence. It becomes a very dark grey, almost black, in the shade.

Looks like Graphite is the Chevy version of the GMC Dark Slate Metallic.

Thanks for the detailed description.
Saw some pics where that color looked black, must have been in the shade or a cloudy day.
Interesting color effects.

I had to give it a lot of scrutiny, as it was a color I was seriously considering. But, it is too a similar type of color to the Cyber Grey to an unknowing person, that I don't want them to be confused to think I'm always driving the wife's truck

Can't have that

Do you find that it shows the dirt like the black does?
My cyber gray isn't too bad at showing the dirt, had one only black car and it was always wanting to be washed.

Here is a pretty good comparison I took today of mine vs my brothers truck.

That's the comparison I was looking for, thanks.

How bad does it show the dirt?

My truck is the Cyber Grey, and it is very dirty in this pic. I would imagine the graphite would be similar.
