Re: Tough color decision: deep Cher red or min gray?!?

I've learned since I ordered my Jeep to not compare Rover colors to Jeep. While some might consider them similar; what looks good on a RR does not necessarily look good on a Jeep...and vice versa. That said, I like the color on that Rover!!!

Re: Tough color decision: deep Cher red or min gray?!?

Cherry, as already mentioned, is more like a metallic maroon than a true flame red like is increasingly seen on small cars to make them less boring. I doubt if something as muted and pleasant as Cherry would have much more or less value down the road than other colors.

Anyhow, why get a WK2 in a color you don't really like just to get another hundred bucks three years or whatever from now? It's a fun vehicle, not Aunt Betty's Honda. Enjoy life, for goodness sake!

I absolutely agree. I wasn't that crazy about the Mineral Gray until I saw it with the Light and Dark Frost Beige Interior. Pure Class!!

But, since you quoted them as reference, check out what they have to say:

KBB:

So, you might ask, "Why does color matter?" Like many vehicle features, color plays a role in the residual value of your car. Put simply, today's popular color will probably make your vehicle more popular to a buyer five years from now. The "probably" factors in the cyclical nature of color popularity, but the general rule still holds true.

It also follows that less popular colors depreciate your vehicle's value. By how much, you ask? That's the tricky part. It actually can vary from hundreds to thousands of dollars depending on the vehicle and the color in question.

Sticking to neutral colors such as silver, white, black and gray are your safest bets. But, if you feel moved to more chromatic colors, bright yellow, orange, or purple vehicles could put you at a disadvantage when selling or trading in your vehicle.

NADA

Believe it or not, the color of a vehicle can impact its resale value. For instance, a black car in a warm climate state like Arizona is usually less desirable (which can ultimately lead to a lower resale value). Additionally, you might really love that bright purple SUV you just bought, however at resale time, it might be difficult to find a prospective buyer who also loves that color a factor that can decrease the demand for the vehicle and, ultimately, its resale value.

AUTOTRADER

CNNMONEY
I always sell my used cars privately. I don't sell a red car to someone looking for a grey one. The value of anything is only what someone is willing to pay. I never buy a car or pick a color based on resale value. I buy a car and color based on what I want not what someone that may buy it 10 years from now wants. The reason I mentioned KBB and NADA was that nowhere in thier options selection, that they use to set a value, is the question of color. They just say to keep away from trendy and flashy colors. I don't think that Jeeps Deep Cherry Red meets that description. Thats my point.

But...if there are less people looking for red than grey its going to effect your value, bottom line.

I think worrying too much about the resale is pointless too because in the end its a small difference, but the facts are the facts.

Re: Tough color decision: deep Cher red or min gray?!?

Picked up today a cherry red Overland V6 with saddle interior. Saddle interior works well with the cherry red color. Saw a winter chill with saddle interior in the showroom. The winter chill look nice except it did not go with the saddle interior.

I understand your point but I just wait for the person that is interested in the car I'm selling with the options that I have to offer. No different than any car dealer. It would be nice if new cars were priced based on color but they know it only takes one to make a sale. As for me, I choose any product that meets my needs and not the person I might sell it to down the road.

LOL. It just doesn't work that way. It's simple supply and demand economics.

Exactly. Supply and demand. If the demand from a buyer is for a certain color and I can supply that demand then I usually have a sale.
