yes, it debuted in 98. note that the 98s have a different front fascia... they don't look like the 99-01. 98s also have different interior, black gauges, a sloppy shifter and rubbery shift boot.
acadia green, black diamond pearl, brilliant red, "rally blue"
black diamond pearl, silverthorn metallic, aspen white, "rally blue"
silverthorn metallic, aspen white, sedona red, blue ridge pearl
same as 00 plus black diamond pearl returned, and they also have the cheezy (IMO, sorry!) carbon fibre interior bits standard.
00-01 have a rear viscous LSD.
