Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

Yes it should be available to order as others mentioned, about 2 weeks ago. Its not in production yet.

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

I'm about to place an order on a 2011 Overland, but I'm unsure of the color mineral grey. It looks amazing on the commercials, but I am curious as to how it will look in the real world under normal light. I currently have an '06 Overland that is black but I want to change it up a bit and now I'm torn between Charcoal or Mineral Grey for the new GC...any suggestions?

I am aware that other Chrysler products have this color option but it's like comparing apples to oranges here, it's hard to do a comparison.

Anyone have this color on the new jeep yet that they can post pictures of. I would like to put my order in next week sometime.

Cheers

It was said that some of those early commercials were not Mineral Gray, but a custom color of some form of platinum for the show vehicles. I've seen several WKs in Mineral Gray, and personally find it flat in most lighting conditions, to the point that I wouldn't order this if it's the same color. It just doesn't have enough sparkle to the metallic. I need to see if this will be a different version of the color once an example hits the dealer's lot.

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

I'm torn; my kids think the bright silver, which I like, is "boring" and they like the charcoal gray. I like the charcoal too and darker colors in general, but the thought of washing it every other day to keep it looking clean (to my liking) is what has me torn. The mineral gray might be the happy median but there are no real samples of it anywhere to be found.

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

2011 Mineral Gray is most likely very similiar to the Mineral Gray offered on the 08, 09. The color is flat looking. I ordered the black perl paint. Had the same color on my 05 GC Hemil The perl effect is stunning in sunlight, and the color (under various shades of lighting) appears to more dark charcoal as opposed to a brilliant (non-metallic) black. The saddle/black interior I ordered will be a stunning contrast to the exterior black. Hopefully...!!!

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

I wonder why the color was delayed.
I think Ill go for the charcoal. That should shimmer right? Or should i just go for black already?

My issue with black is that it shows abs everything abrasion, dust, rain drop and so on. But with charcoal it wont be much different. What ive seen here in Edmonton is a ton of black gcs on the lots and it seems lame bc those will eventually be all on the streets. Oh there is a black one...oh wait...another one just drove by...

See what I mean? $50k is a solid investment so I want to make sure I pick the right color. Help me out here lol!

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

Having seen them all, I wouldn't expect blackberry or dark charcoal to be any different in showing the road grime than black pearl. Those three dark colors need washing if you are sensitive to a little dirt!

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

As I was looking down the list of delayed production items I noticed that the chrome wheel option is off the table now. I know it's a matter of taste and chrome or chrome clad wheels have their down sides. Any info on this? I am waiting until early 2011 to order.
