Several weeks ago, I remember seeing a thread on here regarding mid-year changes to the colors being offered on the JK. Yes, I searched, and couldn't find it.
I know one of the colors mentioned was Solar Yellow, and I can't remember the other, but the post said that Jeep is dropping Rescue Green to bring in some cool colors. I have asked several dealers in the Toledo area, but they are useless, as always.
Does anyone know for sure if this is, in fact, going to happen? And when?
The previous thread about this ended when DC said Rescue Green will continue. Yellow might be introduced at some point. I forgot what color would be dropped, but it wasn't Rescue Green as originally thought.
I was in a dealership yesterday, and you can now order detonator yellow. In fact, the brochure that they gave me has detonator yellow as one of the colors. Based on the color in the brochure, it was a darker yellow than I was expecting. It did not seem quite as bright as some of the yellows that you see on the older Jeeps.
We're kind of frustrated, the dealership here is completely useless, they dont even know what youre talking about when you mention "JK", or an introduction of mid year colors, let alone have a brochure with a sample paint chip on it. We think we want the detonator yellow, but we'd like to be able to at least see something first before we put the order in. We're kind of torn though, it looks like if we ordered it now it'd still be fall before we see it!
My question: Is it true that the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4 door will be offered in
yellow sometime this year?
They didn't mention detonator yellow. I am hoping it's true and the CS agent is mistaken.
Response from Jeep:
Thank you for your email regarding the 2007 Jeep Wrangler models.
We are pleased to read of your interest in the 2007 Jeep Wrangler
Unlimited models. Presently, Solar Yellow exterior paint is not offered
on the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited models for the 2007 model
year. As DaimlerChrysler has yet to officially announce the product
specifications for the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited models outside of
the 2007 model year, we are unable to confirm if Solar Yellow will be
offered on the 2008 models. More information will become available to us
as well as being posted on the Jeep website closer to the official
release date of the 2008 models. We encourage you to stay in contact
with us through the Jeep website as well as your local Jeep dealer as
further information becomes available.
