'14 Granite Crystal Metallic

Has anyone seen a '14 Granite Crystal Metallic around yet?

I'm trying to decide between Max Steel or the Granite, but not sure how dark or light the Granite is.

Also, is there a big difference between Pearl Coat and Clear Coat for the exterior paint?

Thanks in advance.

Re: '14 Granite Crystal Metallic

Drove home an Overland Granite today. Color is darker than it shows in Jeep builder. Max steel has a slight blue tint to grey and has slight sparkle. I was torn but love the Granite. Can't go wrong either way.

Re: '14 Granite Crystal Metallic

I like the granite myself, tho haven't seen one in person yet. MY13 is the mineral gray and hoping the granite is darker if I upgrade to the 2014.

Re: '14 Granite Crystal Metallic

Please see my thread with pics. Like mentioned Granite is for sure darker than mineral gray, but I would say lighter than dark charcoal. It definately doesn't have the "looks black in most lighting conditions" that dark charcoal, blackberry pearl, dark forest green all have. Granite is a pretty dark gray, but it always looks gray. It's an awesome color and if/when the time comes to get a 2014+, first choice will be granite!!

Re: '14 Granite Crystal Metallic

I have some pics from the Geneva auto show today. I'm new here (first posting) and it seems I have limits on what I can upload. The granite is beautiful!
