re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So when on the site - if you go to 75th edition sarge is not an option but Verde Toscana Metallic is - and the Blue is not called Gobi but Lunar Blue Metallic - does anyone know what these colors are ?

I will be sad to see it go but I'm trading it in for a Hyper Green. I will be ordering this week.
I think Flame red is a bit dark but agree Firecracker is great.

Could this "new member" be nothing but a troll ?

Can you provide a link and/or a screenshot?

The green is a FIAT color:


I couldn't find any reference to the blue that isn't a Mercedes:

I get the same color name for the green on Jeeps mobile site. Blue is Laser Blue, though.

No I am not a troll - and it seems my posting was lacking details

Yes it is on the Jeep site - which is now inconsistent - from the home page link to the 75th models there is a summary screen that shows the Verde Toscana as the green color option - but if you go to build it and price it, then it's sarge green - even the photo of the sat in that first page seems to show a metallic sarge green color (very different from the FIat color with same name ). The Lunar blue pearl coat is a Dodge color and seems very similar to Hyperblue ...

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

And I am falling for color name trap - on my first post meant to write Laser not Lunar (which indeed is a Mercedes color ) and last post was Hydro Blue not Hyper blue.

I am considering a Sarge green 75th Unlimited (but all I find is with black interior and wanted the saddle).

And I am not in a rush so knowing that order banks open this week is making me reconsider - get the 16 (may be a good deal) or order the new 75th hope for the metallic to be nice ....or just order a 17 I guess in hypergreen .

This is the fun part

When I go to the Jeep.com home page, select the 75th Anniversary Models, then Wrangler, I see this:



Pretty sure that says Sarge.


BTW, other Jeep models, do offer different colors for their 75th editions.

Laser blue metallic (I wonder how close to Chief this is - I could be on board with this...):


Inconsistencies tell me they are updating things and not all the servers have the fixes in place yet - whether they are fixing a bug to remove these mysterious colors or if they are updating the site to use these new colors has yet to be seen. I only see Sarge..

Has to be viewed on the mobile site. I got the same results as c_t_f_d:

75th Anniversary example

Hard Rock example

Fun find, but... \_(ツ)_/
