Who knows. Some colors stay a while whereas others can be gone in a month.

You can always count on black and white. Outside of those, i would not count on any color carrying over.

Re: Sunset Orange for '16 ?

I don't know if Sunset Orange was really late, but simply not early. I mean, it was listed in the 2015 brochure. Such comes from the difference between when the new model year production starts (and orders can be placed), and the official start of the new model year. The carry-over colors tend to be the only ones available during that time period.

Sometimes, colors are "paused", such as Anvil. That color wasn't available from the start of factory production of the 2015 models, until the official start of the 2015 model year (roughly).

More than anything else, for some reason, Wrangler paint color availability don't follow any rules or patterns.

I really liked the Mango Tango since it was similar to Burnt Orange and it appears that SO will also work for me. Will probably have to order since I want the dual top group on a rubicon unlimited.

Re: Sunset Orange for '16 ?

You are right WaltA, the SO was not really late, just not available at introduction.
I have looked at one on a dealer lot since my last post and it is ok, not exactly what was desired but pretty close - close enough.

Hi, Kadonny - so, have you seen Sunset Orange up close and personal? I have it, on my new 2015 Rubicon, and am really disappointed. It's supposed to be pearl, and it would be gorgeous if it WAS a pearl, but it's just flat orange (flat as Baja Yellow). No pearl or iridescence in any light or from any angle. And seriously, one shouldn't have to look at it really hard to see the pearl aspect. It doesn't look like the pictures in the ads.

Does anyone else have the Sunset Orange? Is it pearl, or are they all just flat orange like mine?

Ya there's a bunch of them around the local dealerships, it sorta reminds me of Crush, but ya no pearl at all. So hard to get the real beauty of these colors in the middle of winter.

Sorry never seen a Sunset Orange up close and personal on a JK. I'm mostly speaking from prior experience on the late model Trans Ams and GM vehicles. Sunset Ornge Metallic was one of the best colors ever on those cars.
