Looks like Dark Charcoal to me. And yes it is Dark Charcoal not black the actual owner of that car has even posted on this thread.

I own the jeep in the photo above. According to the window sticker, it is "Dark Charcoal Pearl Coat Exterior Paint".

I've seen tons of them at the dealer, and they're all the same.

Could you be thinking of Mineral Grey maybe?

I think what your trying to tell me is that Dark Charcoal is very dark. if thats the case you are correct I have seen several Dark Charcoals in person and even drove one. In certain light they are very dark and basically look black. In other lights it looks grayish. Im fine with that because when clean I think it looks unbelievable!! mineral gray is just too light for me and when clean I dont think it has the shinyness and wow factor that charcoal does. There both amazing dont get me wrong, but its charcoal that I like.

Same thing goes for Blackberry. I think that color looks even more black than charcoal does.

Thanks for the heads up.

James

Re: New member. Ordering my Overland TONIGHT! What color? help!!!

So I am proud to say that user Nbtstatic sold me with his absolutely amazing pictures and I ordered a new Overland V8 4x4 Dark Charcoal with Dark Frost Beige interior, pano sunroof, and adaptive cruise tech package!!!!!


I was originally looking at the Dark Charcoal but when I saw one on the lot one night it didn't seem to pop with metallic like I wanted so I started thinking of the black since the one I saw had lots of metallic. Then I saw Nbtstatis's pictures and I'm sold. I already wanted the Dark Frost Beige interior but now I need to check out a Dark Charcoal during the day to make sure it looks as good as Nbtstatic's. Thanks for the amazing pics.

I agree completely, Charcoal is just dusty black. Mineral Gray shows off the lines of the body panels better.

Re: New member. Ordering my Overland TONIGHT! What color? help!!!

Sorry but your both wrong. Dark Charcoal is hands down the most amazing color available on the WK2. Oh wait color is 100% personal opinion! ;-)

Let this picture speak for itself! I saw this and instantly knew dark charcoal was going to be mine!
