All anti-freeze coolants are based on a chemical called ethylene glycol and mostly colourless,the colour comes from the dye in the corrosion inhibitors,different manufactures use differnet inhibitors.
Traditional coolants use silicates for corrosion prevention while many newer vehicles use a new class of organic based inhibitors with an extended service life. GM calls this coolant Dex-Cool but it is sold under other brand names and VW/Audi has its own unique formulation called G12. Many of these can not be mixed .

Basic blue is good enough. Just depends whether you want extra addictives, I guess.
