'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.

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.

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!!

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!
