I might be in the minority, but I would really like to have the option of the Tank green that the Wrangler offers.

How does that compare to Recon Green available on the 75th GC?

Terrible picture. Looks much better in person. Most of us at work miss it. We have a few that miss Winter Chill too.

With the new paint system, would offering more colors be an issue. Is it just because of the quantity of paint they need to buy or load that holds them back? I would guess that you can't run with a couple of gallons of paint.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

That is a really good question. Perhaps someone at FCA could shed some light on the systems abilities and limitations. I spoke with someone who supposedly was knowledgeable with regard to the automated systems that the car manufacturers use. He told me the actual cost to switch over a paint color on one of the robots is around $100 and that some companies run low production run colors in batches to limit change overs. I can not verify this information but it sounds reasonable.
On another note, if you really want to have some fun go to the Rolls Royce "Configurator" and play with all the colors and interior choices. I am afraid that is as close to a Rolls as I will ever get.

2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm thinking maybe the auto mfrs have some type of deal with the paint company that offers Pearl paint.

The WK2 has been produced since 2010 and goes from MY 2011 - 2018.

One of the most popular colors for SUVs is PX8 Gloss Black. Jeep ever going to offer it on Grand Cherokee? I'd dump my brand new Jeep GC to get a new one in PX8 black.

If you really want it, for the amount you would lose trading a relatively new car you could probably get a custom paint job.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Imagine paying extra for white!? Okay I know it's probably a multi step or something. But I still find it funny.

I would love to be able to get recon green and the sienna brown in an Overland.

Now you know I need to know about the 2017 Laredo FRONT LOOK, so what say ye ? ? ? I know all I do is pester, pester, till I make a pest of myself ! Can't help it though, I'm just a getting' older by the week wondering what's going on, yonder-way ! I so desperately want to spend my $40G's, must I opt for the '16 75th Laredo ? Or can I have my cake & eat it too in a '17 Laredo that looks just like the 75th (front) ? pssst . . . I promise I won't tell a soul . . . just you and me will know . . . Ssshh.

And I would love to get the sienna brown in a Laredo - even if it were in cloth !
So tired of 50 shades of gray ! ! !
