Well I know for sure I'm getting a 2014 JGC, but I'm really torn between Bright White and Deep Cherry Red. I literally spent nearly an hour at the dealership comparing the red, white, and blue WK2s.
(I figure an hour now is better than years of not digging my choice as much as the other one I could've went with.)
At first glance, I like the DCR best. I think it looks really classy on the WK2. I've seen spy shots of the Limited+ grille on the DCR and it looks good on it, and I'm sure it'd look good with the new Laredo grille too. On the other hand: maybe I'm totally off about this but while red is much less common than white, it's more noticeable than white, and so I think one is more prone to say "gee, another red car" than they are "gee, another white car". Almost like how thick hipster glasses are neat at first, but then more people start wearing them... and while they're still way less common than not thick glasses, people are more prone to tire of them faster because they're flashier than the not thick glasses. On the other other hand, why care about what other people think. The question is will I
think this way when looking at it after owning it for a bit.
But anyway, I also really like the white. It's a sharp color, and it'll do a much better job of hiding dirt, scratches, and swirls. This will play a role in my decision, I'll just have to estimate how much I'll care about dirt, scratch, and swirl visibility and how much a role it should play in my decision...
In addition, there's not as much risk of the white fading (apparently red paint in general is more prone to fading compared to the other colors -- who knows if the DCR is vulnerable, or if modern paint largely resolved that problem). BUT, the jury is still out as to how good it'll look with the new grilles. Hopefully we'll see pictures of all the colors before the banks open. I'd consider swapping it with a black Limited grille if the stock Laredo grille didn't tickle my fancy. The other thing is, while on the one hand I think the white looks really sharp, on the other I almost wonder is if the white lacks "soul" and is too safe and clinical.
When I compared the two colors today, while I really liked both, I had to try a little more to like the white than I did the red. That doesn't mean I won't end up going with the white though.
As far as True Blue goes: the more I look at it the more I think it doesn't really do it for me as much as the red or the white does.
It's a tough decision for sure.
