    I’ve had the same experience. Everyone seems to love the color. I get more compliments than any vehicle I’ve ever owned.

    When I first saw it on the lot I wasn't impressed. But had to go back and look 2 or 3 more times. The more I looked the more it seemed to look a little different and the more I liked it. Absolutely no re grets.

    Nope. I loved it on the FJ, once it came out on the Pro it sucked me in. Maybe 10 years from now I will get tired of it.

    When I first saw this color, I didn't like it that much. White was my first choice for the Pro, but after finding a 2018 calvary blue at invoice, I quickly changed my mind. I really like the color now, and the white Pro seemed to just blend in with all the other white trucks on the road. However, this calvary blue is not seen much, and the blacked out emblems look good. I am really glad my white Pro fell through (walked away due to desert air intake installed).

    I regret not getting it sooner. It’s a one of a kind color and you don’t see to many of these tacos on the road. I was the same way. Looking at pictures online I didn’t like the color but in person it looks so much better. I recommend you getting it in that color

    I test drove a Calvary blue first but it didn’t have the tech and premium package and they didn’t have a Calvary with those packages on the lot. I got to looking around and saw my next favorite color (MGM) with everything I wanted and bit on the MGM. Wish I would’ve waited it out but it’s too late now.

    I bought my 18 Cement 2 weeks before the 2019 colors were released. If I had known I would have waited. The color is amazing

    I was dead set on Voodoo at first. In fact the dealership then I was looking at didn't even have the voodoo blue yet it was in shipment and still a few weeks out at best. Found the only dealership in the Houston area that had a pro and it was in the calvary blue. Even though I liked it in the pictures that I could see online I wasn't 100% sold on the color. Once I showed up and they had it cleaned I really fell in love with it. Like others have stated I've only seen one other cavalry in person and it was a four runner Pro. Wish it would have stayed exclusive to the pro but it's still rare.

    Cement was my #2 choice. As @OmahaJeff mentioned, I get so tired of silver, white, black and dark grey being the only "colors" in the car / truck universe. I am not saying we should go back to the 70's color schemes, but blue, yellow, red and green have their place (maybe even orange, er Inferno).

    @CalvaryTaco19 only regret is not knowing how to spell it.

    (And thus starting a religious mess that got us all moderated)

    Hell, that was fun, buddy

    Saw one today that really caught my eye. It was an SR5 with the dark wheels and chrome bumper. Very nice color.

    I’ve had silver sky and mgm, cement is definitely not your standard gray. It changes hues in different lighting and has a pearl to it. I actually hesitated as I still think it’s a trendy color.

    Wanted Cement or Quicksand. Both veto'ed by the wife. She wanted Cavalry Blue and thought it was OK but was really not impressed at the dealership until the light got low then it really started to shine. Got it home and loved it. Has really grown on me and no regrets. Used to enjoy getting away to the garage, having a beer or 3 and wrenching on my old Tacoma. Now enjoy getting away to the garage, having a beer or 3 and just looking at my new Tacoma!

    Was going to go shopping to get a new cement long bed 4x4 and saw the TRD Pro parked in front of my local dealer. This was the first Calvary blue I had seen in person and decided to purchase it. Honestly, I really like the color and never gotten so many compliments on a color in my life. I’ve had my truck for over a year and no regrets!!!!

    I love voodoo blue but wasn’t willing to wait till 2020 to get it on a O/R. So got cement and love it soo far! I think Calvary blue is like an old man blue.

    Had Cavalry Blue been available in 2016, I'd have it.

    If I needed to purchase a new truck tomorrow, Cavalry Blue would be my choice.
