Iridium is my vote as well or the "new" Mojave Silver. Looks good whatever it is.

Not sure if its lighting, angle or what, but does anyone else think the front bumper color does not match the front fenders? Bumper looks like a lighter shade of silver.

I don't know if this is a recent common trend, last month when I spent a 1/2 day at the local dealer checking out the 2020 GLEs, I also noticed under the sun, the front and rear bumpers (the plastic bumpers) paint doesn't match the rest of the car.

Mojave Silver definitely has a noticeable bronze/gold/desert tinge to it.

I think this is regular old Iridium Silver from their standard current palette. Some sides of that photo appear to be matte-like finish but I believe that is just lens or lighting glare. Look at the sheen on the hood it definitely is gloss though. Maybe a pre production model?

Yes - Iridium - and under the Show Lights - you get glare and wierd effects..

On GLE's I have not noticed any color differences body/body-colored bumpers - the metallic's I have seen have all been well done including my Emerald Green.. (named Robin Hood)

I was at NYIAS today and the GLS pictured above was roped off in a display. I asked about the color and a rep looked on her iPad at the colors and said it was Diamond White. I tried hard not to laugh and said that's not white. With a straight face she was adamant that it was and the lighting was making it look silver. I asked a 2nd rep and she immediately said it was Mojave Silver.

Sure looked iridium. If it's Mojave then that's a nice color.

She may be correct; certainly looks more white in this video...
