    I know its been choice on the Charger,but has any members or guest seen the color maximum steel metallic on the Chally HC? Ive seen were Dealers have cars in route. May be a color close Chevrolet's night race blue?
    A chrome wheel on a car this color would stand out.

    The Maximum Steel is a very dark gray/light black pearlcoat that looks dark gray if the vehicle is dirty or if it is overcast or dark outside. Up close the paint sparkles like crazy in bright light conditions with flecks that shine silver, gold, teal, and a pinkish purple. It is GORGEOUS (when clean)! My husband almost got that color for his RAM last year, but went with Granite Crystal instead because it shows dirt less.

    It is a great color. Resume speed has a thread for final production numbers for 2015. It was the 6th least likely color made. It is a rich color and looks great on a hellcat.

    I have maximum steel on my Ram 1500 Limited, great color. Looks outstanding when clean, sometimes has a blue hue, other times more gray, depending on the light.

    What is the name of the color I have seen on some Rams that looks almost like a flat blue/gray with no flake or sparkle? It is clear coated. I thought it might be called Maximum Steel, but it is not the same. Does anyone know what I am talking about? I have seen it in person a few times but only on cars on the road and could not verify.

    Jon, I am not certain, but I think the color you are referring to is called Anvil. It is not a pearl coat, and looks a lot like confederate blue, at least to me. I have seen it on a lot of Jeeps.

    I think that's it. Nice find. I wonder why I cannot find a Ram with that color on the internet... I have seen it on a few in person.

    I
    believe it was a one year special color on Ram either 2014 or 2015. Just like they had a limited yellow run in 2016.
