Rabblerouser There will be winter chill hitting dealers within the week. Somebody will get pictures. But as long as they are photoshopping they should trim up the rear end, shorten the nose and give it fuller front fenders.

CrazyBull Photoshop colors. I've seen the color brochure from the dealer and those pics don't come close. Even the 2012 brochure is photoshopped so you do not get a TRUE color perspective. You just gotta wait for a real photo.

I wanted the Gecko but didn't want to wait until Jan for it to be released. On the color wheel its an amazing bright lime green. Would be bang on perfect if it was a pearl but due to the Japanese reactor blowup we won't see much of the pearl flecks for a while and are reduced to "skittles" colors. The BFG is so damn dark its almost black. The pic above doesn't do it justice..kinda makes it look like Diaper Poo Black.. You know..where you look and hand the kid to your wife and go "uh huh...it ain't happenin"
Winter Chill is off also. Think silver fleck with a pale blue tone to it. And you know its photoshopped because its the same bloody jeep as the one in the gecko pdf. lol

Patience..be patient.

One pic is where you can spin the Jeep around....the pic is where you can change the color, background, and wheels.

The problem is that those the colors are NOTHING alike between the two pics.
On this page, BFG looks black, and Winter Chill looks white:


Jeep Wrangler in Canada - jeep.ca

But on this page, the colors are much, much, much lighter.

Yeah but, look how screwy cosmos looks (more so than normal). Maybe the angle of the sun in Canada is affecting the pictures.

Of course, these are just artist renderings done in photoshop (or some other photo editting software). They only get as close as they can, doesn't neccessarily represent the TRUE color.
These shades are a little off, but these colors are all like dozr where it depends on the lighting. I am thinking Gecko is the exact same green as on the dodge challenger, like header and crush, and I saw it the other day. It was sharp,and deeper than this photo, but of course, anyone who has ever dealt cars can't buy anything green.

They are far from Range Rover quality....
But the are far less spartan....

Luckily, for those that want it....you can still get a base Sport or Rubi with cloth seats and half doors with windows that crank by hand. But for Jeep to survive, at had to increase its market share...and the market wants their +$30,000 vehicle to have fairly common items like power windows and door lock and stuff.

Hehe

I think it depends on the color...

I think Sahara Tan looks good in all tan...especially on a 4 door...where it has a very military appeal to it. But I think something like Dozer in one solid color would be way too much.

Still not sure how I feel about Black Forest Green. I really have to see that in person.

ShaneDiddy I like the BFG....dont care for the other 2 colors at all.
