Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

I don't see a difference between black brilliant and black pearl. I do not see an option for black pearl anywhere as an available color.

"Black Pearl" isn't a color choice. They probably mean either "Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl" or "Blackberry Pearl."

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

I ordered Mineral Gray (PDM sales code) on Sept 21 when it became orderable in the dealers system. At that time it was not in production yet. I called Jeep 2 weeks ago and was told this color is now being produced on the assembly line along with another late availability option I chose, the Tech Package (code ADG). As of last Friday there was no VIN assigned yet in Jeeps' system. Dealer tells me I should have this 5.7L Limited by Thanksgiving.

I was told the tech package doesn't go into production till 11/18?? I also ordered on 9/21 but I'm thinking more like Christmas!!

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

I would just be worried about ordering a color I have not seen yet on the car yet. Pictures are one thing and seeing it in person is another.

I like the pictures of the mineral grey....the only downside is the chrome trim blends in to much. Otherwise it is a pretty color and will not show dirt and scratches that much.

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

Yeah I know what you mean.

The mineral grey color looks great in the pamphlets, and on the commercials. But I've been told on earlier posts that the color in the real world is flat and dull and that the color in the commercials isn't even a color that is available. The only thing I can compare the mineral grey to is the RAM 1500 Trucks I've seen in Mineral Grey. This is disappointing because the color does not seem metallic at all. I wish the color could be like a Brilliant Mineral Grey Crystal Pearlcoat or something...then I'd get it!

I changed my order to Brilliant Black Crystal Pearlcoat. Can't go wrong from that. I was going to go charcoal, but it's so close to black that I might as well get black. Charcoal will look like a faded black when side by side to a true black GC.

My order was placed on 10/21...so I probably won't see my vehicle till when? After Christmas? They told me 6-8 weeks.

Agreed, that would be very nice! Seeing some of the commercials, I believe the one showing the front wheel bouncing over a rocky trail could be Mineral Gray. The one through the redwood forest doesn't appear to be the same as what I've seen on Dodges or the WK.
