Re: New color for 2013 Grand Cherokee SRT8!!

Bright White. Will this have a metallic fleck element to it? Or will it be like the standard solid gloss white on the normal WK2 JGC? I really like the metallic sparkle in the current WK2 SRT8 colors.

Bright White is on other Chrylser products and it doesn't have any metallic, pearl or sparkle to it. Bright White is a solid white color.

Thank goodness. Don't want to see any Lexus pearl white color on the WK2.

Re: New color for 2013 Grand Cherokee SRT8!!

Do people really like white that much? I think it looks ok, but I would never want to own a white one and try to keep it clean. Road grime, tar and bugs just make white look terrible when it's dirty, plus it's a real biotch to clean (I know first hand, my wife's Enclave is white and it kills me to clean it).

Like black, it looks great clean, but when it's dirty it looks bad.....real bad. Plus I think white is (don't shoot me, please) a little girly.

Just my opinion, please don't anyone take it personally.

I am going to disagree with you on the keep clean part. We had a 2010 Stone White Grand Cherokee before our black WK2 SRT. What I have found is when the black jeep gets the fine layer of dust on it, it is very noticeable and every little finger print and smudge part is seen. This was never the case on the white jeep. Even with the fine layer of dust on the white it still looked cleaner than the black one does now. I so was hoping white was going to be an option in 2012, oh well.

Pretty funny...my thoughts exactly. I guess the only car I would get in white would be a race car (and that is not for cosmetics, but more for detecting cracks and structural issues, more for the interior with roll cages etc.) Anyway...yeah white? Really? I agree the tradeoffs for white and black are about the same...black does not show grime(not dust, but real dirt, road tar etc.) as easily as white, and white hides scratches better than black so a trade.

I think as you get older you move toward the greys and muted colors. Personally I think some big ass SUV in white is too much...but to each their own.

I just never got the white thing.

Now the supercharger thing, lowered suspension, lighter weight, tuned exhaust, better radio/NAV and ACR version of the Jeep SRT8 I get. Money in hand ready to go Chrysler whenever you are.

Re: New color for 2013 Grand Cherokee SRT8!!

I hope this colour comes to Australia! I can go weeks without washing my Aspen white STI before it becomes notice-able that it needs a wash.
White with blacked out rims!!! yes!!
