Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Just wondering, will the Dark Charcoal Pearlcoat be available for 2012? If not, which color will be most similar?

According to my dealer, the engine block heater is available as an accessory. You can order it from the parts department and let the service department install it.

Dumping the Dark Charcoal? It's what I've got, and I'm a huge fan.

And what's up with all these new brown cars? I've seen a few from other manufacturers, and they look like, well, s***!

I'm also a bit perplexed with the lack of Dark Charcoal as an option. I'm going to be placing a 2012 order soon and really wanted that color (may have to settle for min gray). I think it may have something to do with the pearlcoat paint being supplied exclusively by a factory in Japan that was hit by the earthquake/tsunami.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I thought they originally made Dark Charcoal an option on the 2011's because of late availability of Mineral Gray that I don't think was originally supposed to be late availability.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Just ordered a 2012 Limited in Deep Cherry Red with the 5.7, black interior and offroad package. Thanks to all the info on this site! I've got my VON, just waiting for the VINs to get generated and I'll sign up for order tracking. Can't wait!

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Awesome! Deep cherry red sounds like a nice color! I'm also going to be ordering a 2012 Limited V6 Stone White with Frost beige interior,
730N, luxury group and adaptive cruise.

although, i wonder what the new color winter chill is going to look like.

Can't wait to order!!

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I was originally thinking of getting black, but it's so dusty up here that I had second thoughts. I was looking at the jeeps in the dealer lot, and the black 2011's already had some swirl marks on them from being cleaned. I was impressed how the pearl effect in the red makes it difficult to "focus" on imperfections. It really pops in the sunlight too! I'm also ordering the black 18" mopar wheels, should be a good combo.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Does Deep Cherry Red exist on some other Chrysler model so it can be seen "in the flesh"?
