    Cavalry blue is my favorite color, I think, I dont think I have seen one in person...so I am not 100% sure. Before I go to a dealer and check one out, does anyone have regrets in getting this color?
    Thanks

    Haha, thanks for that. I typically keep a vehicle for 7 plus years, I just want to make sure I will not get tired of it. Light blue is my favorite color but I know it can take on other hues.

    Well if you think you might be interested in another blue, voodoo will almost certainly be a standard color for next year. I prefer voodoo to cavalry.

    I committed to buying mine sight unseen, from 400 miles away. Bought an airline ticket, and hoped I made the right choice. Nervous as a teenager on a first date!
    LOVE at first sight. “No Ragrets!”
    Nothing else like it on the road.

    I love mine more each day. No regrets and Cavalry Blue looks even better in person.

    At least 3 different hues, for sure. A year in, and I still turn my head back in parking lots, as I’m walking away

    Then you need to go see one, or more, in person. And in different lighting conditions. Bright sun, cloudy, early AM, late PM, dark, etc. It's the only way you'll know.

    Decide you do or don't like it for yourself, as you're the one to live with it. :thumbsup:

    I prefer Falcon Gray, all though it's not available on the Tacoma @ this time. I do like Cavalry Blue, especially on the last special edition TT FJ. The color does remind me of a local cab company's fleet color.

    A lightish blue with black accents is just boss in my book.

    I am liking a lot of the color choices these days. More interesting than the usual black/white/silver/dark gray. I should point out my last vehicles have been dark gray, white, silver, black, dark gray, black, dark gray, and way back in the early '00's Seafoam Green (Subaru Outback).

    It's hard to come up with a cool color that will look stylish in 5-10 years. Avocado green...turd brown...champagne...many fads have fallen by the wayside.

    No regrets. My 19 sport gets a lot of head turns going down the road and is the target of a few cell phone cameras (of drivers :eek:). Pulled into my garage last week and even a neignborhood inferno SR5 guy stopped at my driveway to admire. Definitely second the above though, flat black accents and Cavalry look good...

    Cavalry blue is a subtle and muted color. It's not bad at all. If I were going for blue I would also wait for 2020 when the Voodoo blue hits the standard badges. That color is amazing.

    I love mine. My wife talked me into getting that color and I’m glad she did. Many people will stop me just tell me who much they like the color.
