Not good news for those of us who ordered Granite based on the color shown on the 2014 GC Jeep website.

I feel like the lied to me. Someone screwed up major league.

So are you wanting to blame Jeep for the color mess up or you going to take the blame yourself? They didn't put a gun to your head and make you order..lol

You can't really count on any colors on the internet being accurate ... even if you do calibrate your monitor every 30 days, and always view it in the same light.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The only color that I have ever seen accurate on a computer screen is black and white... Of all the vehicles I have bought, the color on the website it pretty far off from the actual color.

Here's the Max steel blue from the Ram trucks site and the Jeep site, they aren't even close.

Yeah, I'm not so sure why the color render is so off on the Jeep website. They did a good job on the dodge website for granite, I'm a bit shocked it looks so far off, same with the Max Steel. The way they have it rendered on the website, I'd choose Max Steel in a minute if it looked like that in real life. Different monitors will also show them differently. Can't blame them though, sorry ;-). Must look at them in real life, even real photos online can be misleading sometimes depending on lighting/monitors/etc.

Nor do I think the Max Steel on the Jeep looks anything like that picture in real life. Way to blue onscreen.

Personally, that is what I am thinking on ordering. Too bad the Indigo Blue/Brown is not available in the Overland. I guess I have to go with Brown/Lt. Frost Beige. Don't care for black.
Not available in the Overland as a combo with Granite, correct,..... but available on some other Overland exterior colors.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Yeah, the max steel on the website is gorgeous... in reality though it is much darker... still gorgeous but I prefer the extra blue showing in the pic on the website.

I agree, I wish it was closer to the rendering, but I still love it. We stopped by the local dealer on a Sunday and compared all the colors in person. That's the only way to pick what you really want.

I'm really amazed at how far off the Ram colors are. None of them are close. Jeep has done a better job but they are still pretty far off. I guess if they got them closer to their true color you would be looking at a bunch of black vehicles for max steel, true blue, and green.

The Cashmere actually looked really good on my wife's laptop screen but looks closer to the gold that it really is on my computer. I might have gone with that color if it looked like it did on her screen, which was a classy pearl white. In person, it's still nothing like rendering on either of my computers.

Maybe I'll cancel the Jeep and buy a Ram truck. I like the color better.
