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

Speaking from my experience...
The colors on the Jeep Web site are very different than they appear in real life (for instance, in photo of the JGC on the Towing Web page, the green JGC practically glows). Photos of local inventory posted by dealers vary depending on the camera, location, time of day, weather, and/or photographic skill of the person taking the photo. The tiny swatches in the brochure are inadequate.
Rather than just hope I was making the right choice, after I decided to buy my JGC but before I ordered it, I scoped out local inventory online, then drove to area dealerships to look at all of the colors in person. To seal the deal, and because my combination was nowhere to be found near me, I drove about an hour away to see the precise combination I had picked in my head just to make sure it was what I wanted. All told, I spent a few hours on three dealer lots, but it helped me justify my choices and made me feel secure about my investment.
If you're not in a hurry to get one or order one, take the time to visit a dealer and look for yourself. Better to make sure it looks good to your eye than to get stuck with an unappealing color after it rolls off the delivery truck.

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

Just tried a couple photoshop renderings for Deep Cherry Red.

What do you think? At all close?

Well, it looks like my wife has chosen Cherry Red.

However should anybody come accross a photo of the Grand Cherokee in Cherry Red, then please post it here.

Thanks

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

Yes it is but I just found out the ship date has been moved ahead a week so I won't be able to post photos for a while yet.

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

Ok

So when are you actually expecting delivery?

I've ordered ours today, expecting it as late as February next year.

Regards

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

If it ships on the 10th it will take 5 days to get here by train and at least a day to get to the dealer, which is only 15 minutes from the railyard. Those are optimistic numbers. I hate to keep calling CS but, at least in my case, Insight isn't very accurate.
