Refused delivery of Overland -opinions wanted

I had a funny feeling I was not going to like the color combo we ordered our Overland in. (8-28 order)

Silver exterior with the Frost/Dk Frost interior.

Here's the story. Husband does not like black ext. - too hot in the south and hard to maintain. He also does not like a black interior. So we compromised and thought the Silver ext. was a good choice. But the interior was so limited, we went with the Frost. At first I wanted the black ext. but got talked out of that, thought ok, because the brochure interior pictures looked like a color that would work with the silver ext.. Wrong.

Jeep's brochures do not give a good representation of the colors. Their pictures lead one to think (at least us) that the frost is a light taupe and a dark taupe. It is not. Frost is a TAN and Dark Frost is a dark BROWN. In our eyes that interior does not look good with the silver. It clashes. A dark brown dash and other interior points looks wrong with the silver. I could not see spending 42,000 for an Overland and just getting used to it. So now we have to decide what to reorder and it's going to be hard. If we order next week, I bet we won't see the new Overland until mid January Feb.

There's an Overland V-8 Hemi 4x4 in Houston if anyone is curious!!
The dealer is super nice and we are out nothing.

So tell me your color combos!! I think Jeep needs a woman's input. There needs to be better interior colors and combos.

Went with black ext/frost interior (pretty happy with it..always been a black interior guy, tried something new).....maybe white ext/ frost interior may be a good compromise for you guys..

Re: Refused delivery of Overland -opinions wanted

For me, silver/beige is a common combination in other makes and I like it. That combination may look better in the Limited since it's beige seats/black dash/carpet instead of beige/brown.
But color is very personal and you first have to please yourself.

does the dark brown dash bother you against the black exterior?

don't think I can do the white ext.

Yes, in the Limited it's a better combo. It's the brown that is giving me the heeby geebies !!

Indeed. That's a great combination. Look at these pics from fellow member Red G8R...

I'm beginning to think the Frost interior looks good with only the Black or White. And the White Gold.

In most pictures, the Frost/Dk Frost looks Taupe(ish) and Gray. It's just not.

Milous, thanks so much. We typically keep our cars for a long time. My Navigator is almost 11 yrs old. I don't want to get into it and not like the interior - which I know would happen every time I looked at the brown (which was supposed to be taupe) with the silver.

Milous - hopefully we can make up our minds and reorder soon.

Re: Refused delivery of Overland -opinions wanted

The Mineral Gray Metallic with the saddle interior should also be very nice assuming the saddle is not to orange in color.
