Not liking any 2014 SRt colors......Confused

I went to the dealer yesterday to see all the colors and finalize price on 2014 GC SRT. I am getting one hell of a deal and way better than what Pat @ Fields auto is giving. Just amazing deal. But I am really disappointed after i saw all the colors except Granite.

They removed my favorite Bright Silver....from 2012-2013

1) Billet silver - Boaring looks bland compared to Bright silver.
2) Black - Nothing really to say about it.
3) Bright White - It' dint wow me . Just looked pretty flat white paint. It's pure white paint , I guess I am used to more pearl white vanilla kind of color and not pure white.
4) Maximum steel - The ugliest color. Looks black, unless kept clean every time. I am surprised Jeep chose this color for the launch event at Detroit auto show. Does not fit the personality of the SRT lineup.
5) Redline 2 - I saw the redline 3 in the showroom , looked ok. Not sure how much different it will from Redline 2 int erms of the paint finish.
6) Deep Cherry Red : This was the best color in my opinion. Looked really nice with some metallic paint effect. And it's not even available to order right now.
7) Granite - They dint had anything with that color, anyways dint' mattered to me.

I told my dealer , I'll be back on Monday after deciding on the color. So I guess I have to decide between bright white / Redline 2.

Dam !

I agree Deep Cherry is the best among the bunch. Look really rich under lights or outdoor.

Re: Not liking any 2014 SRt colors......Confused

I dont know why they removed bright silver or deep cherry for as of now. I don't think i can wait long enough for deep cherry red plus I have another SUV with similar deep cherry red color.

I cant decide between bright white or redline 2.

What looks good in the show room is not always the best choice for day to day use

Loved the cherry red in the show room but not something i would like to live day to day

Re: Not liking any 2014 SRt colors......Confused

after having deep cherry for the last 5-6 months I have to say its a joy to me. Its super easy to keep clean and gets so many stares. I go about 2-3 weeks between washes and it looks perfect about the whole time. It can be dirty up close...but at 5-8 feet looks super clean. Now this isnt my daily driver...but I do drive it alot when the weather is nice because its an awesome beast.

Re: Not liking any 2014 SRt colors......Confused

fully agree, it sure looks much cleaner than the rest of the colors. almost every other SUV is either black, silver, gray/metallic, white, etc. on the road. Several SUVs come in shades of red/deep red. but the deep cherry red looks best on a WK2. as others have noted, it definitely has a different shade in changing light conditions, and all of them are gorgeous.

this is my 2nd vehicle in red. love it so far.

Love my 2012 in Deep Cherry Red, especially in bright sunlight, where it is similar to Inferno Red of previous generation.
