I dont think that's green. That looks like the same silver one shown at the Off Road Expo....same rocks and everything. Looks like they added the brush guard and the winch from the NY auto show.

I opened the photo up in photoshop and ran the color sampler over it. There is a definite, but slight, green bias over the whole hood. It would be a very subtle green/grey, but it is at least a bit greenish. The lighting is not good, so it's hard to say what it would look like in daylight.

I don't think it is the same as the grey we've seen previously, because that grey looked glossy. This is definitely matte.

Cheers,

SEMA hoopla is my guess. You can be sure, that will be one of the questions I ask them tomorrow when I'm there....

Yea! And tell them to think carefully before finalizing that color list. There are left nuts and kittin's lives on the line.

Bad news it seems. Scott from Expeditions West (the site where the pics are posted) posted the following on IH8Mud.com

No go on the green guys, sorry. I just talked with the project manager today...

I really liked the green

I'm pretty surprised that toyota didn't go with more traditional FJ-40 colors. Seems like a no-brainer to offer a forrest green, fire truck red and tan. Orange, I'll admit, is a stretch. (Apparently very few cruisers came in that color. My parents just got lucky and randomly got a beautiful FJ55 in that color. We cammo'd it with spraypaint and gave it to the boyscouts when I was 7. And no, the lambs haven't stopped screaming.)

Seems like a bit of a marketing snafu. _shrug_ Maybe our voices will be heard. Someone said toyota employees are actually checking this site out...

Please orange, please orange, please orange.

Cheers,
prat

I would bet that they are checking this site. I think it may excite Toyota just a little to know that we are holding the fort, anxiously awaiting the vehicles actual release. Of course, that means they should do us all a favor and give us each a "Member Discount" for being a part of the online community that is totally lusting after every available piece of information about this new Toy.

I mean, come on, it's the least they could do!
