Max Steel or Bright White?

I'm going to purchase an altitude this weekend and my dealer has both these colors on the lot. I would love opinions. I'm afraid the max will look muddy without sunlight. TIA

White cars look like kitchen appliances on wheels.

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

GC's look good in white, but Max Steel is a beautiful color. My Summit is Granite Crystal but only because Max Steel isn't available with that trim!

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

Basically, you can't go wrong with either color. I was on the fence between the two as well. White with the black wheels would actually be a better look. Especially if you keep it clean.

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

Purely subjective...I don't do dark colors, so it would have to be white for me...

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

I went with Max Steel on a '14 Overland. When the sun hit it, it was a beautiful. Otherwise it looked like a muddy dark grey. Parked in the sun it got extremely hot.

My next GC will be the Ivory tri-coat. If they had not announced the new color it would be bright white.

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

Wait a minute, you've just changed the whole ballgame. Are they making tri coat pearl in 16? For altitude? And when can I order? My Hellcat is tri coat and I think G.C. would look awesome in that.

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

They have different front bumpers. What else is different? Leaning towards the white.

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

If the choice is between the actual two vehicles you showed above then without a doubt go with the white one.....not necessarily because the color, but because its a '14+. The '14+ models are almost like a completely different vehicle.

Re: Max Steel or Bright White?

Ok just read all about the 16. What to do? Overland high altitude gotta be way more $$ than the laredo. What am I going to do now, darn it
