Anyone with a picture of a Maximum Steel GC yet?

Looking to see one in real life. Can see it on the online configurator but it looks strangely greenish on that and I doubt that's the real-life look.
And yes I'm aware that they just came off the line last week. I thought maybe someone near the factory might have seen one by now. tia

I am also curious to see a pic of one posted here. It looks like an awesome color in the new brochure.

Re: Anyone with a picture of a Maximum Steel GC yet?

When I wanted to see a True Blue, and it was still very new, I went to jeep.com and did an inventory search using a Detroit zip code as the target. I then went through the the matches and looked only at the dealers that posted pictures of their inventory and I was able to find pictures that way. Most dealerships don't.

Of course, back then, you could search on the specific color you wanted. So it was easy find exactly the color I wanted around the detroit area. I remember it did seem to be that searching from Detroit outwards, it was true that the closer to Detroit, the better chances of finding the new color.

They've since redesigned the search feature and you can only search on generic colors like "blue", "black", "gray". WTH color are you supposed to search on for Max Steel?

Given that problem, another approach might be to just use jeep.com to find the dealers around Detroit, and go through them one by one, ignoring the dealers with no inventory pictures, and looking for maximum steel at the ones that do. You're bound to find a pic - if not now, then very soon. If not now, then maybe save the URLs for those dealers with inventory pics so you can quickly check every week or something.

Possible it's the same as this? The site says it's Maximum Steel Pearl but it's from 2003.

Actually if you look online there's a pdf Chrysler color brochure (can't figure out how to link to it) and it does NOT look like the car in the link. It's more of a Dark Blue, not a Charcoal.

If you are talking about the brochure with all the different color splotches on it for the entire Chrysler line then I wouldnt pay any attention to it because the colors on that brochure look so different on a computer then they do in real life for some reason.

Re: Anyone with a picture of a Maximum Steel GC yet?

Doing a search from the dodge website, I was able to find 8 or so Durangos that are Maximum Steel that are in the Detroit area. (You have to search for "Gray", and then wade through the never ending Mineral Gray hits that come up and find the few Maximum Steels that are mixed in.)

From those matches, just one dealer had an actual picture, and just a single picture, which is below.

I also did a search for WK2s from the Jeep site, but I found absolutely none.

It's this vehicle here...
