True Blue....Help!
 
Just got back from my local dealer and I am going to order a 2012 Overland. They are going to call me this afternoon with an offer on my current car and I really need to know if anyone knows what the True Blue colour really looks like. They didn't have a new brochure and were pretty vague as to whether it was a light or dark blue so I would hate to place an order only to find the colour was hideous. Any help would be appreciated.

Seems like the same problem that occured last year with Mineral Gray and the Saddle interior. You may need to be a guinea pig on that order!

Or wait a few weeks.

Do you really need this right away? Because if your needs are pretty typical, you might be able to grab one off the lot in September quicker than waiting for one that's special ordered this week. You can get Zag pricing by waiting, too.

Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of. It's a pretty big gamble if I end up hating the colour. On the other hand if I go for a known colour and True Blue turns out to be awesome I'll be kicking myself.

True Blue is late availiability anyway (sometime in September it is scheduled to go into production). If you google "Patriot Blue" you'll get a good idea. True Blue is reported to be a deep navy blue according to WK2s site and the color palette that has been released to the fleet sales. But there are still no pictures of a True Blue JGC that I've seen.

Thanks everyone for the help. That's exactly the colour I was hoping it would be. It should look pretty good with the saddle black interior.

I'm holding out to see True Blue myself. Either going to be that, or 'plan B' of Mineral Gray. Those pics are with overcast sky. I suspect it's going to look a lot brighter in the sun. I took the first shot (which has the least reflections) and zoomed it larger, and was like, 'whoa". I hope it's actually a bit darker in real life.
