The elusive Sarge Green?
New 2016 Jeep Wrangler 4WD Unlimited Sahara for sale in Fayetteville, NC 28304 - Kelley Blue Book

Though the VIN and list of options may be the real deal, I'd guess the photos are from another Tank Green they've had on their lot. Their website doesn't list this Jeep, so I'm guessing this is a teaser of a vehicle on order.

That would be correct. It's been on their lot a couple months.

No, I think the photos are of this Sahara, and they are indeed showing Tank green.

Here's the dealer's actual webpage for this VIN:

And here is the Window Sticker for this VIN:

Production launch for sarge green isn't until jan 25th. The ad is wrong, either intentional or accidental mistake.

Sarge Green will probably be publicly viewed in the Detroit Auto Show jan 11 with the 75th Anniversary Wrangler special edition is displayed.

This J8 is sarge green, confirmed by Archer.

That's a nice color. It's just what I was hoping it would be.

I would never buy that color in a million years.

He did? I must have missed that post. I thought that picture was taken in some Cairo production line, and was taken many, many years ago (note the color of the parking lights).

It is also not even close in color to the picture of an actual 75th in Sarge Green that Archer did post.

That's the way I understood his post #3681.

Not Sarge. That's Tank...and it is gorgeous! (I'm biased though.).

I read his post to mean that J8 is closeish to Sarge, in the same post he suggested that it's an elusive color for monitors and pictures to capture. The J8 doesn't look anything like the actual Sarge green that he ...found on Google... a few posts above that.

....and a few posts later he acknowledged that the two pictures are the same color. Lighting and shade changes these new colors dramatically.

Same thing is happening with mojave sand. Some picture it looks like a washed out sahara tan, others it appears much darker.
