The point of my post was to consolidate all available color info into this thread about the color. I too look forward to an actual photo of the real thing, or better yet to see it with my own eyes, as I noted no digital mock up can ever compare to the real thing

Well so far none of the 2013 colors appear to actually be BAD, so Im remaining optimistic. The name is COMMANDO green afterall. With jeeps military history, I dont really see them screwing up a color like that at all. Sure it may not be the same as the swatch but itll still be sexy regardless!

That's my hope as well, in this case though seeing is believing.

I have confirmed with my own eyes a color code for commando green on a dealers computer system, although he later called and said whatever sources he has informed him about the August 6th ordering window opening up.

Something tells me this isn't what you had in mind



Babies are great sales tools, now to sort out how to incorporate this camo clad kid into the Commando jeep commercial

I do think it will be very similar to rescue green. But I think it will be quite a bit duller. But I obviously do not know for sure...

Rescue Green was metallic if I remember right, and fairly brilliant in the sun.

Commando looks/sounds like it will be essentially olive drab with a clearcoat.

+1

Here are some Rescue Green images from Google for reference. Looks like it'll be slighly brighter than the Commando Green.

It would be cool if somebody could find some official Jeep literature/image color patch of Rescue Green like the ones for Commando Green in the 2013 info thread and compare them.

We need more pics/mock ups. Any chance someone could do one with Allied stars, or other WWII markings?

Nice Jeep! Love it!

I think I'd go with Natural Green over Commando Green. Had Natural Green been available for 2012, I don't think I could've passed on it.

Eh, I'm happy with my Bright Silver Metallic, so it's all good. I'll just get one the next time around.

IMO, some colors shouldn't ever leave the palette...Red, Black, and some sort of army-style Green.
