2014 black summit, lower pieces gray?

I have a 2014 black summit, I just noticed today that the bottom pieces of the trim, in the front, sides and back, are all a gray color. I thought it was all black when I purchased it. Just curious if that is how it should have came...

The 2014 summits are all like that. If you get the platinum package on the 2015 summit the bottom trim is body color.

Re: 2014 black summit, lower pieces gray?

Silvermax basically summed it up. The 2014/2015 Summit has granite colored painted lower skirts regardless of exterior color. As mentioned the 2015 "platinum" edition comes with color matched skirts, mirrors, and handles as well as brushed nickel looking accents that are normally chrome on the regular Summit.
I know the difference is less obvious on your black Summit, but I recently had all my lower skirts paint matched at a local shop. i think the granite colored skirts are more of a luxury oriented look. I prefer paint matched and LOVE the look on the non-platinum summit as I like the chrome trim and polished wheels which the platinum does not have.

Here is a link to my thread with pics: Got my lower skirts paint matched 2014 white Summit

Yeah, I hear you. Call me crazy but this is the reason why gray would have been my favorite color on the Summit prior to MY15. While I didn't mind too much about the platinum trim instead of the chrome on my MY15, I was very happy when they announced this option just to get the painted/matching lower skirts.

Re: 2014 black summit, lower pieces gray?

Is the gray on the side skirts the same exact gray as the granite color of a regular summit?
I hadn't heard of a "platinum" edition of the the Summit. Is that something that is regional/only offered in select states?

No. It's a normal option available for the Summit.

Yes the granite side skirts are the same as the standard granite exterior color on the Grand Cherokee. So if you have a granite Summit then you get paint matched skirts lol.
As mentioned "platinum" edition is just a normal package available anywhere. It was introduced for the 2015 Summit and offers paint matched skirts, mirrors, and door handles. It also changes all the chrome to a nickel kind of finish and I think the wheels are silver painted.
