2011 Overland - what color?
 
ugh, decisions, decisions! Needing to order an Overland ASAP but having a tough time deciding on an exterior color. Leaning towards the White Gold, but since we can't actually see the color on a real life car, it's tough to know exactly what it looks like. I'm leary that the "gold" might be too yellowish and glaring. But there is no way to really know. We've looked at every picture we can and the color doesn't seem to be constant through out all the pics. Some are just fine (pale gold) while other pics are brightish, more of a yellow/green gold. Second choices are the Black and maybe the silver. Definitely want the lighter color leather interior.

Any thoughts?

I love mineral gray and silver. Wifey loves the red.

My advice, never order a color you have not seen in the flesh.

As above, do NOT order anything without seeing the colour bro.

even though the colour may be ok, what about how it reacts with the rest of the vehicle? ie, the gray trimmings around the wheel arches etc.....

my thoughts exactly - hate ordering without not seeing it in real life.

does anyone know if the Jeep White Gold is the same color on a Chrysler car,
just another name?

Bebe,
That is correct the White Gold color for the JGC is the same as the color used on Chrysler mini vans. I ended up ordering an Overland in the Blackberry Pearl. I really wanted the Saddle interior but, didn't want to wait till this fall.

We went with Blackberry Pearl. I didn't want black or white, and the gray and silver just didn't seem to do the vehicle justice. The White Gold might have been nice, but I tend to prefer blues and greens, and the Natural Green wasn't available to order yet. I didn't mind the red, but my wife didn't like it much.

Blackberry Pearl it is, then.

If you have 10 hours a week to detail it because every little impefection on Black is magnified by 10.LOL

The new Mineral Gray color that is coming out is absolutely beatiful IMHO.

Meh I have a black Jeep, and all I do is wash it once or twice a week to keep its true color.

Taking care of it is easy, get it detailed once or twice a year and your good to go

The Chrysler web site shows White Gold "pearl" on the Town and Country van and also on the 300. But the 2 colors are worlds apart! Dodge has it also and once again the same White Gold Pearl is represented as one lighter than the other. This is very frustrating. Wonder if there is any way there is a Jeep rep who knows what the heck is going on and what the true White Gold looks like.

We thought we wanted the saddle, but the remainder of the interior seems like a lot of black. We are in Texas and a black interior down here in the summer is murder !!
