    spbmopar newbie here, going to order my new Hellcat tomorrow. Trading in my 2009 SRT 8 Challenger. I was going to go with B5 Blue, but the dealer tells me no longer available - Bummer. Thinking about going with Maximum Steel Met. Clear Coat. Whats every ones opinion?

    I think Maximum Steel Metallic is an AWESOME color for a cat but I think it's only available in Canada. Where are you?

    Hello, and welcome to the forum! Maximum Steel is a really pretty color, but not for me. Only because it is as hard to keep clean as black and Jazz Blue ... I am waaaaay too OCD for that. I'd be washing the car every other day, LOL!

    Good evening and welcome to the form from upstate New York. Think about those three colors that are now discontinued or at least for now? I would think about a lower produced color that you like this will allow you to see less of the same color car that you have

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new HC. You can't go wrong with any color HC. Its all a personal preference. Mine is Jazz Blue, it reminds me of my blue 69 Roadrunner... Back in 69 I thought 335 HP was awesome, man have we come a long way! Rock on bro...

    I do not know what kind of colors you like ... if you like Maximum Steel then perhaps black? I know the Granite Crystal is really nice ... extremely sparkly, even when dirty or in overcast/poor lighting conditions. Granite Crystal does not show dirt nearly as much as many of the other colors. I am probably not helpful on this subject because I just traded my 2015 Redline Challenger HC in on a 2016 Plum Crazy Challenger HC simply because I wanted the Plum Crazy color that I had been trying to get for 7 years. I have had a 2009 SRT8 Challenger, a 2013 392 Challenger, and the 2015 Hellcat Challenger (Plum Crazy was never available when I was buying before). Fourth time is the charm for me!

    The four colors that I know of that are no longer available are Sublime Green, Phantom Black (the Pearlcoat black), Plum Crazy Pearlcoat, and B5 Blue. If there is another color that has been phased out, then someone please bring it up, cause I feel like I am forgetting one. If you really want B5 blue, then perhaps do a search for one instead of placing an order? Just a thought, as many forum members got their dream Cat that way ... including myself for the Plum Crazy I am waiting on (it is in transit to the dealer now).

    Max steel available in US, one of our local dealers has a Charger Hellcat in the color. I have a Ram pickup in the Max Steel color and I really like it. Many say it's too dark but I've had a bunch of black cars and trucks, and it is a enough lighter to be very interesting, especially in the sunlight. Not sure how it would look on a Hellcat, though.
