Re: What is the best color for the 14 SRT

The best color is Mineral Gray... but it's not offered on the '14...

After hesitating for a long time between Billet Silver (slightly lighter than Mineral Gray) and Granite (slightly darker), I ordered Granite.

Re: What is the best color for the 14 SRT

The best color is the one that is sitting in your driveway!

Max Steel for me. Love how it turns gray on cloudy days, black on sunny days and blue at dusk or dawn (when clear).

Man, you're making it difficult for me to get TrueBlue for my Limited because of this argument! And your pics sure pushes me to MaxSteel

Agreed!

Changed from Granite to Billet at the moment I was ordering it. I just needed the contrast with the wheels and the black grille. Easy to keep clean and looks unbelievable with the black chrome wheels...

Re: What is the best color for the 14 SRT

frankly i havent seen a bad color yet, all shades kick ass, my preference would be 1) black (nothing beats a fully blacked out car) 2) White (black rims, black roof, black grill black tints and sparkling white car is pimpin) 3) Max Steel color kicks ass

Re: What is the best color for the 14 SRT

Love my Max Steel... and since we're linking showoff/pic threads - here

I agree with Scott though, the best color is the one that ends up in your driveway!

(If we want to be picky though, I would have looooooooved to order one in Shadow Blue Pearl.)

Re: What is the best color for the 14 SRT

I can't VOTE for a single color

Here is my TOP 4 colors

White
Maximum Steel
Billet Silver
Deep cherry Red

My reasoning for these picks are that you can see all the contrasting colors of the grille and the bumper inserts better.

It is crazy how different this paint can look. My iPhone thinks it is nearly black on a cloudy day compared to my pro gear on a blue sky sunset evening. When I got the plates for it, the lady at the DMV asked what color it was and I said.... um.....gray/black/blue, LOL.

Re: What is the best color for the 14 SRT

Yup. So many different colors pop depending on the lighting, clouds, sun, time of day, rotation of the earth...

There are several different metallic flecks in there that catch light pretty crazy. In the bright sun it looks like I'm walking up to a bass boat (granted, I see bass boat in the Brilliant Black as well).
