Here is a picture of my 2013 TRAX, but it's called Sonoma red jewel metallic. Looks like the ruby red they are now calling it. She doesn't have her nice stock rims on yet, though!!

Is that your winter wheel setup? seeing how you're Canadian (devoted leafs fan bumper sticker ;) )

If I end up selling my daughters 2012 Cruze and getting a Trax, this is the color we will be getting. Thanks for the pic post.

This is most likely the color i'll go with as well. It's also the only color I've seen in person besides white and black. I like that its more of a subtle rich red rather then stand out bright red.

Yes these are my winter wheels, soon to come off! I hoped that no one would notice my Leafs sticker :( :(
I figured. At least you are going about the best practices for winter driving, some just don't understand how vital such a setup can be.

Great choice, it's one of a few on my top list of Trax colors.

That's what i've noticed as well.
It helps to give the Trax a bit of a premium edge, at least that's what I see.

I feel bad for leafs fans this year. That team needs some serious work. I think the red is one of the best colours on the Trax though.
Deep Ruby metallic would look even better if all the lower plastics were in the same color :D

That's true of most of the colors though. They could make it so that one of the higher trim levels gets rid of some of that black plastic and replaces it with body color metal. You might just have to step up to the Encore for that though.

I think this is definitely the most popular color. Which is nice since so often it is silver or black.
Even white, white is all too common especially as it comes to japanese cars which can be spotted just about anywhere in strong numbers.

They are getting rid of this color for the next model year. There is a different red instead, but this particular one is going to be gone next year.

Those wheels actually suit the Trax well. But if it was up to me to choose the finish of the wheel, it would be all in that polished finish, no black parts. And I say that because I like to keep an "OEM-feel" to aftermarket parts I add to my vehicles.

I like those wheels. They are interesting without being "too much". A hard ting to pull off on a vehicle like the Trax.
I thought it was pretty easy to accomplish that. But that might be due in part to my knowledge about aftermarket wheels.

That red is close to the crystal red on my corvette, that was the main reason I bought a bright red Trax.

Red is my favorite color, over the years whenever I had a car painted, I would pick a red I liked.
