Color opinion

Just a quick opinion on choice. I like feedback. I love both just want to see what you guys would look at more when you see driving.

I vote for the red, but I may be a bit biased

Re: Color opinion

They are both gorgeous. While black always looks great when clean and shiny, it is tough to keep it clean and shiny. Also, every other Grand Cherokee on the road is black. Nothing distinctive there. The red was not my favorite, but it is starting to grow on me and I think it will stand out more than the black. I chose the white High Altitude and have no regrets. Warning: This is just my opinion.

Re: Color opinion

Red. Plus it doesn't have the front license plate installed. Assuming both are in the same condition, mileage .......

I thought that was Max Steel. Hard to tell from the picture which it is....I still vote for red...especially the new Velvet Red like mine!

Yes, but that's not black it's Max Steel. Could never do black.

Re: Color opinion

A local north jersey guy huh? I saw that max steel at a dealer in Paramus! Guess someone made the mistake of trading it for a Raptor!! lol. My '15 SRT is black and i prefer the darker colors so would go with max steel. You also don't see many max steel on the road so it's somewhat unique. Never been a huge fan of red vehicles personally. But to each his own. Either way, you'll love what's under the hood!!

PS - if going with a dark color make sure to get the front end wrapped with protection film as north jersey roads will take a beating on your paint. Had mine wrapped with Xpel the day it came home from the dealer.

Good luck with your choice.

X2 on the license plate. I'd take the red because it looks gorgeous in the sunlight. That picture does not do it justice.

Re: Color opinion

I have a black 14... and while it's a pain to keep clean... I have no regrets. But between "max steel" and red... I'd go red.

Dodge is reviving "go mango"... I wish they'd offer it for the JGC.
