I'm lucky that I rarely have to park my cars in the sun. If you're in the southern half of the country and have to park in the sun, then you're pretty much down to either white or silver - and that means silver.

I'm not so much a fan of white vehicles, but I will say that the GC's I've seen in white look sharp. Then again, I'm not sure there is a bad choice, these are beautiful vehicles.

Side note about white and nothing earth shattering...I washed my father's vehicle last week and if you'd have looked at it before the wash you would have never believed it was that dirty. I could not believe my eyes as I was washing it, the amount of filth removed was astounding!

My last two have been silver, before that green so maybe the colors I'm used to washing had something to with my amazement.
You have now hit the bullseye on what I have been preaching for years. White still looks white when dirty, one of if not the cleanest colors.

Yeah but the thing is white still looks white even when it's clean. That's why people paste photos and recipes and stuff all over their refrigerators.

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

Personally not a big fan of the Max Steel. Buddy of mine purchased one about 6 months ago, and although it's snazzy, the color just doesn't jive for me with the dark blue/black combo. I've also owned 2 black JGC's prior, and although I love the black/black, or darker combo, those things show so much dirt and every dent/scratch. I went white this time around just to try something different and switch it up a bit .

With that said, my brother did just purchase a black '15 Altitude and it's quite sexy.

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

WHITE.



Purely unbiased opinion, of course.


My rig gets dirty out in the mud or on the trail, and white stays clean looking. Even dirty, it looks clean. This is my first white car and I love it.

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

Looks like the white one has HID lights? If so, you'll love those over halogen

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

Dark color is a heat magnet but it depend on where do you live , i live in a place were the heat reach 122 f sometimes . My previous car was white with paige interior right now i have the granite Crystal metallic With black interior it look nice & luxurious especially at night but i can feel the heat

Washing marks will be noticed in the darker color , white is washing mark resistance as will as dirts it need less wash & care unless you intend to use the pricy nano ceramic coating every two year

If that a valid reason for you get the white & paint the ugly Black fender moulding to match the body color & the surrounding front grill to black just like the srt

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

I think dark interiors make even less sense for hot sunny climates than do dark exteriors. I've always been baffled by people who choose a black interior for an Atlanta car. Different (heat) strokes for different folks, I guess.

So very true. This is the first vehicle I've had with Bi Xenons and I can't see myself ever going back to halogens. Literally a night and day comparison in performance.

He said he posted those pictures as examples those aren't the ones for sale. No Altitude edition gets HID's as those models are based off the Laredo. He said both are 2015 models. What you see in the pictures is an older '11-'13 Altitude compared to the '14+ Altitude which uses halogen projectors (not HID).

Like stated above, no Altitude model comes with HID's. The '14+ model now uses projectors, but they are still halogen.

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

The white is just flat plain white. Not a fan at all. Cheap to repair if you ever have issues in the future on paint.
Good choice on the color. My first choice was granite crystal. Silver and black were up there as well.

White on appliances only.... LOL solid quote.
