Re: 2011 Overland - what color?

Bebe, have you seen or received from a dealer the colorful Grand Cherokee Booklet? Maybe 20-30 pages thick of details and pictures, supposedly $20 bucks but I got mine for free.. Theres a huge blown up picture of the saddle interior and you are correct, aside from the seats and the armrests on the door panels the rest is black, not including the wood trim... I opted for the beige interior since I have seen it in person on a limited and prefer it worlds over black, black interior is a pain to keep clean you see every spec.. Exterior I went with black though

Taking care of it is easy, get it detailed once or twice a year and your good to go
The problem isn't so much keeping it clean, it is what happens if you get scratches or dings.

My wife has an all black Acura TL- looks great, but some schmuck dinged the rear quarter panel bad enough to flake the paint. Couldn't ignore it, so had to have a body shop fix it. They ended up having to blend the paint from a very tiny area into most of the rear quarter, and then they had to re-clearcoat the entire panel, all the way up over the doors and down the A-pillar. It's all the same body panel on that car, and you can't just do a portion of a body panel on a black vehicle- the difference will show.

What should have been some minor touch up and an easy dent removal became a $600 job that was turned in to insurance. All because some moron couldn't figure out how to get into a parking space and didn't have the decency to take responsibility for his/her own actions.

Agreed! Coming out of my 2002 Black volvo, its AMAZING how the driver side of the car is near free from scratches/dings and the passenger side (the side the OTHER drive gets out on) has some chips/scratches and dings...

People just don't care what happens when they fling their door open.. Its quite sad :/

Re: 2011 Overland - what color?

just an added thought ----

what do you guys think of the Silver exterior with the Light Frost (lt. beige)
interior?

not sure those two will blend well.

Re: 2011 Overland - what color?

I think the Mineral Gray or Dark Charcoal would look good with the beige but the Silver is a little too light in my opinion.

yes, our dealer/sales agent did give us one of those high dollar brochures !!
mighty nice of him huh! We also bought a '08 Wrangler from him, so he knows we will most likely buy the GC. Bet they don't give those to every person walking in.

The black ext. was one of my 1st choices, but being in Texas the black is so dang hot. We were also looking at a Tahoe - while I love it in black, that thing would be a pain to keep spotless!

Re: 2011 Overland - what color?

I was looking at Tahoes right before I saw this GC hit, and even though I like the Tahoes, I think for the money you get more in the GC then the Tahoe, I also like the fit/finish interior over the Tahoe anyday, at least Overland style.

Re: 2011 Overland - what color?

I had looked into the Tahoe too but the one thing I don't like is that the second row of seats doesn't fold flat (or fold at all, really). That was one thing that I couldn't stand about the WK - seats don't really fold flat...they are much better in the WK2.

Re: 2011 Overland - what color?

Does this look like the dark charcoal pearl?

I'm still trying to get a comparison btw the Bright Silver and Mineral Gray.

In the commercial with the one running through the redwoods, the fine print states that one is Mineral Gray.

thanks! see the white gold looks ok on that pic. But on the Chrysler site some of their White Gold exteriors are real gold and garish. The exterior in the picture above looks nice. I wonder how much we could trust that picture to be a real true representation?
