Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous, do you know what the new gear ratios will be on the Hemi 6-speed?

Nice.. Any idea what winter chill is? Pearl white? Brighter white than stone white?

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Looks like Brilliant Black is out the question. Now I have to make a decision whether I'm going to get a 2011 or deal with the plain black for 2012 but get the 6-speed. This happened when I bought my first SRT8 GC. The year I bought it they went away with the Brilliant Black and then came back with it the following year.

Milous is this the case from what you are hearing? Are they going to skip the Brilliant Black for 2012 given the supply issues with the pigmentation stuff?

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thanks Milous for all the information.
Is there any way to see what the Deep molten red pearl coat looks like? Is it on any current vehicle?
With the current available colors, it is a choice for an Overland between the Bright Silver or Molten Red, both with black interior.
From what I have been told the JGC clear coat use a conventional clear coat as outer layer(s).
On the other hand the Pearl Coats have the gloss mixed in with the paint rather than separate layers.
Have I been told correctly?
Hopefully pricing will be released soon.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

That is a beautiful red!

It appears it might also be an option for the 2012 JGC.

Love the srt8, but also need the 4x4 capability. So the srt8 is unfortuniately out.

There are many different reds out there. Does any other brand currently have a red similar to Deep Molten Red? Could use that to get a feel for how it would look on a JGC.

If you're looking at it on a computer monitor, you don't have any idea what kind of red that is (unless you're a graphics artists with expen$ive calibrated equipment.) See it in person, under natural (not fluorescent!) light, before you judge it.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Man that changes things. I agree, viewing colors on the computer can be tricky. I never thought the Natural Green Pearl on the Jeep web sight looked anywhere close to the real thing...I wonder what shade of Blue "True Blue" will be? I have been telling my friends I am going to buy one of these things for a year now! I feel like Brett Favre trying to pick a television.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Yea, I'd really like to see an example of what Winter Chill and True Blue look like.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Actually I do have a very good idea what the red looks like.
The monitor is just one link in a very long chain. There are things like the color temp of the lights, the effect of the lenses, the effect of filters, effect of angles, effect of sensors, effect of processing, etc.
Am highly experienced in reading monitors, calibrated and non-calibrated.
Still want to see the color in person for subtle effects and some vehicles look best in some colors and not in others.
What do I bring to the table:
Photographic artist with exhibits and following as far away as Greece and Australia.
Decades long member of the American Society of Magazine Photographers.
Something like 7 years experience as a Scientific and Technical Photographer at the Secret Labs at Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah.
Supervisor in charge of all the Army’s film, video, and still photography in the Pacific.
Photographic and computer consultant to such organizations as the Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian.
And much more.
Currently due to an ex-wife, make most of my living consulting to organizations like Intel, Fidelity Investments, IRS, Medicaid, Amgen, Wells Fargo Bank, and many more.
Dave
