Am I crazy or are there two shades of cavalry blue?

    I bought a 2019 cavalry blue Tacoma this year. I ordered some touch-up paint that was much darker than my truck's shade, but I had ordered cavalry blue paint. I have seen around town that there are other cavalry blue tacomas that look much darker than mine. Are there actually two shades?

    Cavalry Blue looks like 2 completely different colors whether in the shade or direct sun. It looks muted in the shade and almost like Voodoo blue in direct sun.

    It’s not uncommon for touch up paints to be slightly off, especially if it’s non-OEM.

    Even if it’s OEM, it may be from a different supplier (bulk vs aftermarket) and slightly different.

    I’m sorry bro, no it’s not, not even close. Cav is awesome in its own rite but looks nothing like voodoo.
