So which is it?

The Monroney sticker for my car refers the color as Cajun Red Tintcoat, same for the Chevy Bolt website.

Last weekend I was sliding around under my car looking things over. I spotted a couple of stickers on the inside of trim pieces, these had the VIN on them and other coded information, but interestingly they had "Glory Red" printed on them.

Apparently the shop manual for this car refers to colors w/"insider" terms. Perhaps that extends to parts labeling?

It's both. Pretty much all of GM's colors are shared throughout the entire corporate fleet, but each different brand chooses a new name for the color. Some of the colors a are decades old, like Victory Red.

Glory Red sounds so last century, like a color on somebody's father's Oldsmobile. Cajun Red Tintcoat sounds so much more sophisticated. And hip!
