Sorry to break the news, but that picture is 110% mineral grey that was offered from 11-13. Billet is a lighter color and Granite is darker. I was also sad the mineral grey was discontinued as that was my favorite. It was not too dark, but not too light. They got rid of the sweet spot grey

I agree.

That's max steel not granite.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Also, I don't think any Billets or Granites have been manufactured yet -- or at least they weren't with the first batch that went to dealers. That is why we haven't seen any pictures yet.

Might have to wait another 3-4 weeks to start seeing those colors show up on lots and in pictures.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

This misfit with the trail rated 20's is what I was thinking was granite. Could be max steel too because of lighting, not real sure. I didn't see it anywhere else in their testing though, as I doubt they would have taken the 20's offroad testing. I think its the missing gray myself as the true blue in the background appears true to color as well. I do see on pic 242 on autospies there is an overland with 20's that looks black in the lineup. Just to hard to tell I guess. Best bet would be to go look at a charger or something on the lot until we get some real pics.

Guys,

the pictures of the Billet SRT and the Granite Crystal Summit are from Barcelona (Spain).

These cars are European versions - maybe for the car show in Geneva, which starts on the 7th March.

When you look at the mirror cover from the Summit (check the other pictures), you will see, that it is in Granite Crystal too (and not chrome like the US version). European people doesn't like chrome like US customers, so it seems that they changed it for our market.

The first official picture for the MY
'14 for the european market was a White Summit.
The mirror cover was also not in chrome - it was in White too.

I wrote somewhere, that Granite Crystal will go in production - I think from March on. So it could be in fact, that they use the show in Geneva to launch that color (Billet btw. too).

Gigi

That sounds right since my Granite Summit that recently went D1 is scheduled for delivery on March 15th in Florida.
