I am looking for a vin decoder for a newer diesel truck, 6.6 Duramax 2019. I am really interested in the color of the truck. The truck is black but it seems to be metallic black, any help would be greatly appreciated.

You don't need a VIN decoder, you have one in your phone
For years GM listed all the build codes on a label that was stuck to the glovebox door.
But, I think on yours, they switched to an internet label
Get an app that will read QR codes, and shoot the code on your truck, I think it's on the drivers door jam.

You’re correct it’s on the door jamb driver side. I see if I can find an app to read QR codes.

That didn’t work so well for m. I downloaded an app that only reads QR codes on vehicles up to 2018. 😀

A QR code is a QR code, GM used them on the Volt when it came out and used it on the trucks in 2018.
There shouldn't be any difference between a 2018 code and a 2019 code, as far as I know.

Unless it's a GM-specific QR code, shouldn't it just take you to a website?

I've never used it.
I expect the VIN and the GM URL are embedded, reading the code should take you to a GM website. With the website and the VIN all build codes should be available.

That's the way I see it.

Ask them for a build sheet, give them the year and vin of your vehicle. They will email it back to you for free with everything already decoded for you.

Anyways just below that QR code you should see the color code.

Should be sent back within 24 hours. I emailed them later at night and got it in the morning when it came to my truck which is an S10.

Thanks.
