Upgraded armrest on '17 Z71

Getting some warranty work done at the dealership on my '16 and saw a '17 Z71 crew Cab on the lot in the new graphite color. Wow, looks great! Also noticed on the interior, the '17's appear to have the upgraded, padded, leather looking armrest cover standard; at least on the Z71 trim. What's interesting though, is the armrest is not the black color that most have upgraded with from the Canyon parts. It is actually the blue/gray color of the seat fabric inlay and dash parts found on the Z71. It looked really sharp. I tried to locate a part number on the cover, but I could not find anything printed on the arm rest. This is something I will be buying once part numbers become more readily available for the '17's.

No, it actually is identical in color to the blue/gray interior accents on the z71 Colorado. So, not as light as that.

I would have taken pics, but I did not have my phone on me at the time.

That's why the wife gets this one. I'm just breaking it in for her, since she drives 4 miles a day.

I'll compare it to my Z71 when I get home.

Awesome. Glad I held off on the Canyon mod. I'll be picking this up for sure. Thanks for the heads up!

After reading your thread I went to the dealer today and saw the new 2017 Z71 armrests. Just ordered one from the dealer. Thanks.

What'd they charge you? Same as the Canyon piece, I assume?

I got it with the whole plastic underside too so I could just swap it out. The parts guy told me it costs $120 but he always gives me a discount. I'm sure you could order just the top piece and pry it apart yourself and save some money. It's not the same color as any Canyon. It's the blueish grey color of the Z71 with white stitching. Not light grey. I like the look. Go to a dealership and check it out.

What? The 2015 and 2016 Z71 Colorados came with a hard rubber type console lid. They have changed it this year. 2017 model.

Z71 Colorados only have one interior available as far as I know. At least for 2015-16.

@Krystof Go a dealer when you have a chance and check it out, it's nice. I was going to get the black GMC armrest with white stitching. That would look great too.

That's great you were able to see what I was talking about and order one! Do you happen to have the part number for it?

No, I showed the parts guy the console in the dealer's lot. He called me to confirm the order and price. When I pick up the console in about 2 weeks I can give you a number. He said all he needed was the vin number for that truck.

Good deal. I'll try to locate a VIN for a '17 Z71 and order one

Just go to Chevy's website and locate a Z71 near you and take a photo of the vin. I'm not sure where Dahlonega is. You could just ask the dealer to order it. A lot of guys on here tried ordering the Canyon armrest and got the wrong part. I don't care if I save 10 or 20 dollars as opposed to getting the wrong part and having to order it again. And no shipping cost at the dealer. And if it's wrong, it's their problem.

I must have missed what color options you can order this in. I looked but I don't see it anywhere. Can someone let me know what color you can order the arm rest? I apologize if it's already said.
