Over the years, I've found that white vehicles look/stay cleaner longer than any other colors. But YMMV.

That is so true. Every few cars I get something other than white, just for a change. I do like the look of my maximum steel, but I know my next vehicle (whatever it is) will be white.

Re: 2014 GC Colors

I'd love for my next one to be white, too, Bill. My first JGC...a couple decades ago...was white. It was a Limited which at that time was the top trim level. The 2000 Tundra Limited I owned until late 2005 was also white. So if that's a choice available to me next time around, it will be on the short list!

In the additive theory of color (color as light), white is an equal combination of all other colors...



In the pigment theory, it's somewhat the opposite...

Re: 2014 GC Colors

For us, living in a sunny climate precluded dark colors. Regarding showing dirt, guess it depends on what color your area's dirt/dust is. The Cashmere Pearl Coat we chose doesn't show desert dust (like even white does), doesn't absorb as much heat as a dark color does, coordinates with our diesel-pusher accent color when we tow it, & is a wonderful subtle color that changes with light conditions; have had many compliments on it. Also love the NZ Black/Light Frost interior.

Re: 2014 GC Colors

I like the Bright White much more than the previous Stone White. I wonder how it would look with a little "pearl" mixed in? Other brands have it.

And there are those that will say that silver/gray colors looks like primer paint.

I don't think so......primer is dull (no clearcoat)

My seventh grade science teacher had a round disc divided into pie-shaped slices of various colors. When she spun the wheel at high rpm what you saw appeared to be a plain white disc.
