But, yeah, as he points out, go with the colour you like.

The last thing you want is to drop a ton of cash on a rig, and then a week later decide you hate the colour.

Keeping naything clean can be rough depending on where you live. In my expereince, Silver has always been the easiest, black the hardest, everything else falls in the middle.
It was a toss up between Bright Silver and White. We may not get Bright Silver this year (in Australia) if American colours is any guide so White wins.

Well I went to my dealer and was still torn between Max Steel and white so I went home and realized that what is the color because my wife isn't a fan of MS. Now I'm stuck waiting til tomorrow to do anything. Hopefully this doesn't delay my order.

Colour: White
Engine: Diesel

So its a stab in the dark as there is no info here yet on anything from Chrysler/Jeep Australia.
What dealer are they in QLD

I plan to order a 2014 GC and am undecided between the Hemi and the Diesel. I see they have the same towing capacity, but have not seen any performance data for the two engines with the new 8-speed transmission (0-60mph, 30-70mph, etc.). Is this published anywhere or is it yet to be determined? If unpublished, anyone care to speculate on the difference?

I like the added fuel economy of the diesel even at the higher cost per gallon, but do not want to sacrifice too much performance off the line or at highway speeds.
If you live anywhere or plan to travel anywhere with elevation you WANT the CRD.

Seriously? You can't find pics of the colors?

They are all over the place and have been for 2 weeks or longer depending on the pic.
They are on Jeep.com, they are on paintref.com, there's links all over this site with them as well. The best thing to do is go to an actual dealer and look at some of them as they are either a carry over from last year or they are taken from another Chrysler product (200 and the Auburn, Wrangler and billet), or Dodge Challenger (Granite)

One more tidbit...for the billionth time on this site, do not trust that maximum steel looks like it does on line. It's basically black/charcoal with some rainbow flecks in it. Cool color, but not how it's depicted online.

Just FYI for the Jeep people in the US. You are getting good press here in Germany!

You amy say that's just fair but that is unfortunately not how the German press usually treats brands that are not German.

When you go and order the white one your dealer could "accidentally" enter the max steel code, I mean its only three characters and I think one of them is the same between the two ..max steel ftw !
