No one seems to be buying red 2014s
Having per used this forum I haven't seen anyone that has bought a deep cherry red 2014 JGC - I can only see black, white, granite, and max steel - I was considering red or black myself, but I'm wondering if red will affect future resale

You have to remember that we are a very small size compared to all the ones that will be produced. You might have 200 people on here buying that you will see compared to over 20,000 that have been produced.. I wouldn't worry about that.

Re: No one seems to be buying red 2014s
I wouldn't worry at all about resale value, for two reasons. First, red will always be popular, even if not the most popular. Second, and more important, it's your Jeep. You should be buying what you want, not what you think the next guy will want.

I would have bought red if they had left the black trim on the Overland. I had seen a '13 in that combo and was sold. Then they announced the body color moldings for that model on the '14 and I had to decide between red in a Limited or another color in an Overland. The Overland interior won out.

Good luck in your decision.

I think they are just starting to produce Deep Cherry Red SRT's. We have one ordered but still waiting for production. I was told by the dealer that it was scheduled to ship this Friday but a production date hasn't even been assigned yet. As of this morning there are about 170 SRT's in transit to dealers but only two of them are red. One for Tennessee and one for Pennsylvania.

Red if an awesome color and would have been my first choice if my wife didn't have any say.

I have ordered a deep cherry red Overland, but it's stuck in Inspection hell.

I'd say cherry red is the best colour to have, if its not that common you'll stand out more from the crowd, and I have 2013 in red.

I have a red Summit on order. I usually alternate all my cars red,blue,red,blue and am due for a blue one but Summit not available. If you notice, the website, this site, and the commercials all feature red. Most cars sold are silver, white, black so I like the red b/c it stands out...personal preference.

Looking at the stock in the local area, seems like dealers have ordered a bunch of red 2014s but they aren't moving. Same with V8s

I was going to order a vehicle but the sales guy said 12 weeks- but I see a lot of folks on the forums that received their vehicles in less than 2 months - is 12 weeks worst case?

I like red but the Deep Cherry Red isn't my favorite, but it does complement the Grand Cherokee nicely. I like a bright ass red LOL. Something like the redline is!
