If that is deep molten red then they screwed up not offering it.

Re: Seeking a photo of the limited or overland in Deep Cherry Red

Regardless, I think most would agree that Deep Cherry appears to have quite a "pink" look to it.

Maybe seeing it in the flesh would change my mind, but it looks a little too much like a shade of lipstick for my liking.

Re: Seeking a photo of the limited or overland in Deep Cherry Red

Here is a close up picture of Deep Cherry Red Crystal Pearl on a Compass that pantherman75 took and posted on the SRT8 WK2 forum a month ago.

Re: Seeking a photo of the limited or overland in Deep Cherry Red

Hmm.

Sometimes I think that if we were to order Deep Cherry Red we will not know exactly what it is going to look like until it comes off the truck.

Not sure if we want to take that risk. Otherwsie we will have to hold our order until pictures of the GC in deep cherry red are available.

Re: Seeking a photo of the limited or overland in Deep Cherry Red

The problem is, pictures on a monitor can never show the true colour. There's just too many variables to make an educated decision.

Yeah. I tend to agree. However I was hoping to see a few different pics and hopefully be able to build a "Colour Consensus".

The problem here in Australia is that the dealers only stock very few cars to look at as most are sold as soon as they get them. The dealer that we will be using has said that he has never had a red WK2 pass through his shop.

So the only way of seeing one is to look at as many pictures as possible on the net. Not ideal, but really have no other choice.

The Mineral Grey may just be the safer bet.
I'll be buying soon and I'm on the fence about Mineral Gray. It's a color that also looks different depending on if sunlight is hitting it or not. If overcast, it's a nice, straight, metallic gray, and I like it a lot. The chrome contrasts against it nicely, too.

But in sunlight, it suddenly looks about 3 shades lighter and takes on a champagne or beige color. I don't like it very much at all.

I've noticed in all the commercials and photos where Jeep shows a Mineral Gray WK2, it's always overcast.

Re: Seeking a photo of the limited or overland in Deep Cherry Red

If you do a google image search for deep cherry red, there are many chrysler vehicles that come in this color. The dodge ram in particular has more muscular lines and seems to match the aesthetic of the GC moreso than the Compass. And it looks quite good in this color. I've also seen dozens of Grand Caravans in deep cherry and never thought they looked 'pink'. Any version of red that isn't orangey is going to have some magenta tones that come out when under direct sunlight. I used to work in a paint store, and I noticed that when couples came in to pick colors together, the men were always terrified that if they painted a wall red it might look 'pink' in the sun. Relax!
