What I still cannot understand...knowing how "vanilla" most of the interior and exterior color combinations Genesis is offering on the GV80 are, why would they terminate the production of Gold Coast Silver and Lima Red half way through the model year? Other than the blue and green, it left customers with having to settle for shades of white, gray, and black...and with black interiors. Genesis marketing really has no sense of what the American market wants. First, they didn't make nearly enough 3.5 Prestige, then they cancelled the color combinations we want, and finally...they continue to send dealers color combinations few want.
I blame the dealers as they ALWAYS chosing 50 shades of gray/Black no matter the Brand, Make or Model. Also, There could be a color/paint issue with Lima Red and GC Silver. Though I have not heard of anyone posting about them, I did see the Lima Red tester one of my local dealerships have and the paint is very scratchy. Like someone used a rough towel and circular scratched up the coating. It stands out really bad on the Lima Red.

UPDATE: Confirmed! Just as I suspected the Adriatic Blue 2.5T Prestige with Dune Interior sold before any of the monochrome grays and silvers with black interiors that are 3.5T. People want COLOR! the 2.5t was one of the last to come on that lot and went before all the other bland colorless ones that have just been sitting there. I can't wait for my Cardiff Green Prestige to come in!!!

View attachment 2084 View attachment 2084 we ordered a bland white one with dune interior he have had a bright blue jag for a while & love the color & the adriatic blue is just too dark for us..
What a beauty! I have the electric Blue 2018 Sonata Limited Ult. And The White with the Dune Interior was 3rd on my List. Cardiff Green #1 and Adriatic Blue #2...The only Reason White/Dune was 3rd is because I recently had my White 2017 Santa Fe XL Limit Ultimate totaled by an idiot trying to beat the light. I got flipped over. And getting another White SUV just brings back bad memories for me. I don't want to be reminded of that. Otherwise, it would have been #2 after the Green. And I agree the Adriatic Blue GV80 is too dark. I'm hoping my 3.5T Prestige Cardiff Green/Green Smoky Brown Int. gets here soon!

If Genesis offered all interior colors with all exterior colors (like most other manufacturer's due...namely, Volvo with the TC90 which is a direct competitor to the GV80), I would have most certainly order a Cardiff green/ beige with black interior. But, because Genesis is restricting choices to what THEY deem "looks good", the only other exterior color with that interior that I like is Gold Coast Silver. So now...I wait. Order one March 1 - being told "it's still coming" and should arrive Sept. 15th. o_Oo_Oo_O

man i hope your gv comes in the color you ordered it would suck to wait that long & not get what you wanted. when we ordered the jaguar we wanted the supercharged v-6 but they were switching over to a turbo 4 & said ours might come as a 4 cyl. i told them im not buying it if its a 4 cyl we had to wait 2-1/2 months for it to get here to find out what we got very stressful we were lucky and it was the v-6 & that thing moves 380 hp in a 4000 lb suv.

That sounds about right. My Cardiff Green 3.5T Prestige ETA is Sept. 21st. I hope it comes early though.
