New colors for 2011.......trying to choose from the list...

Okay, I know color is a personal thing and thus, one can think that their choice is beautiful while another is thinking....that is pathetic...

That said, I am planning ahead for my purchase of the 2011 model and reviewing color choices that apparently will be offered....

Here is how my thinking currently goes on the subject....

Some I have ruled out already, while others are still a possibility:

black--beautiful when clean but been there, done that, never again (too easy to see surface scratches just from washing vehicle....

white--been there, done that.....found that the acid rain that falls in my area left very small rust-like spots on the paint---difficult, if not impossible to get out...

red---again beautiful color but a little too flashy for my own personality---like to be a little laid back and blend in to the scenery....

silver--most popular color apparently for most cars----so many silver cars on the road, doesn't offset chrome features very well.....

blackberry pearl---seen this color in a brochure of the new 2010 Dodge vans---very dark, looked like dark navy to me from what I could tell---don't much like dark colors after having so much trouble with my black one

dark charcoal pearl--I assume this is the color pictured in the Moab? pic that is on the net that has been passed around....not a bad color....possibility if others don't pan out...

white gold metallic--seen this color on a Dodge Journey recently, seemed a little gawdy to me as it appeared to be really gold and a lot brighter than say the light sandstone or champagne colors seen on earlier models of Chrysler....not sure about this color but I usually do like the gold...possibility.....

rugged brown pearl--don't know about this color because I haven't seen it anywhere yet, so it is a possibility.....you might not think that brown would be nice but I had a 2000 GC Ltd that was brown (forget the exact name) and I can tell you (personally speaking) it was really nice...so I look forward to seeing what this color actually looks like....

Re: New colors for 2011.......trying to choose from the list...

I'm going to look into that dark berry color.. seems like it could be a pita like black but I remember the old ZJs having a color similar to this and I like them...

Re: New colors for 2011.......trying to choose from the list...

I'd go with and Inferno/Red, or some kinda Graphite/Gray Metallic. I'm NOT a black, white or much of silver fan, because it seems like every other on the road is one of those colors.

The 2000 WJ "brown" color was Champagne Pearl Metallic:




Rugged Brown is noticeably darker. This color is avaliable on 2010 models of the Ram in metallic. While it is hard to judge colors by a paint chip, here is one for Rugged Brown Metallic:




PS: Exterior colors have not been finalized yet for the 2011 GC. I do know that they will continue to offer Stone White (and not the newer white gold metallic). I'll see if I can dig up some color info and report back once final decisions are made for the GC palette.

EDIT: It looks like White Gold Metallic is a go for the 2011 GC.

Thanks for the info.....funny, I remember my 2000 as being a little darker than the one in the pic you have but maybe it looked a little darker in person....

If the new rugged brown is that dark, I will have to pass on that....no more dark colors for me after having the black one....
