Re: Color poll and pros/cons of each

Missed Maximum Steel. Was going to be my color, but it has been hell finding one equipped like I want it through my dealer and they are having trouble doing a dealer trade for one. (Best friend runs the dealership and is getting me at cost) Overland 4x4 5.7L ORII Saddle.

So I'm going with my second color choice that the owner is using as a driver. Mineral Grey Overland Summit 4x4 5.7L ORII Engine Heater. Why anyone ordered one with an engine heater in Texas I have no idea, but that's how it's equipped.

Pros - Looks good. If it is like other grey cars I've had it will not look dirty easily.
Cons - Can't think of any.

My ideal is a clean and polished black car. Absolutely love the way they look. I've had two. In my care they never stay clean and polished. I've learned my lesson.

I also like the true blue. I walked into the dealership only wanting black, and came out with a true blue wk2. I was hell bent on black, but as i walked around the lot, I just felt the blue caught light a bit better, stood out more, but at night it looks black until you come right up on it, which is something I liked. Overall couldn't be happier with the contrast of the saddle and blue

Con with any dark color is its tendency to show dirt.

Bright Silver.
Pros: Easy to keep clean; looks good even when moderately dirty.
Cons: Not as flashy when detailed as the dark colors.

Re: Color poll and pros/cons of each

Deep Cherry Red -
pro: have had four other new cars a similar color
you really do not want a dark color in Florida summer
every other car you see here is either gray or white

con: sun has been known to really affect reds so will keep garaged & polished when not driving.

aside: was the demonstrator I first drove & wound up buying it. (15 miles on clock)

Thats funny you say white shows dust and scratches...The reason I like white is because you dont see dust and scratches.. To me, dark colors show dust and scratches. Just my opinion tho lol.. For example, my super white tacoma looks clean ALL the time even when its pretty dirty.. and I know where some scratches are on it, but someone who didn't would never find them.. Anyway, my vote is white for easy to keep looking clean and hides dust and scratches hahha...by the way, just ordered stone white, cant wait! almost got mineral gray though.. oh and white you dont see swirls either, which I like..

Re: Color poll and pros/cons of each

Bright Silver:

Pro: As someone else mentioned it hides the dirt well. Also I get a great shine on it using Klasse AIO followed by two coats of the Klasse Sealant Glaze. I've had a lot of compliments on the color.

Con: I spend too much time staring at it.

Re: Color poll and pros/cons of each

I just purchased a 2011 Grand Cherokee 70th anniversary edition in bright silver with the hemi and I have had lots of compliments on the overall appearance. The silver also looks good at night too and the color is easy to keep clean. It looks sharp with both the chrome and the black accents. Oh, by the way, I am a new poster so hello everybody!

Re: Color poll and pros/cons of each

I love the look of a black vehicle when it is cleaned and waxed but they are a pain to keep looking good. I will probably always own a black vehicle (black z71 at the moment) but this makes my wifes second silver because it can get pretty dirty and still look decent. The downside to silver is that it tends to chip easier but that may be a thing of the past since it seems the quality of all shades of paint are going downhill.
