PS. another vote for orange!
I have one that is Surf Blue - there are many advantages: 1) You will never forget where it is in a parking lot, 2) Here in this part of New Brunswick there are lots of Patriots but I have the only one that is Surf Blue- it turns heads ,3) it will not get stolen 4) Even covered in Mud (as Mine has been) it still stands out, 5) I think I get about 2 mpg more with that colour ( don't as me why)

Jeep Green I think.
But it looks good clean but really easy gets dirty. Alomst like black.
It's winter here now and you can wash the Jeep today and take it in the rain for 10 min and its like its never been washed. I usually wash my cars every weekend but from this week I will wash it one weekend then the next weekend will just do the inside and then wash again the following weekend.

Inferno Red with Jeep Green a close second. While Jeep Green is a good choice because of Jeep's military connection, Inferno Red is GREAT! It connotes "youth, vigor and an active lifestyle" (my girlfriend's words). Besides, the red shows off the Patriot's "curves" (or lack of it) even better!=)

"Steel Blue" was my first color choice, but when i couldn't find one with what i wanted, so i went with Khaki and i've not been disappointed. its a great color to hide the dirt. actually, in the pic, the car is really dirty if you saw it in person, but in the pic it looks CLEAN!

i wasn't so lucky with my "Deep Beryl Green Pearlcoat" Wrangler Unlimited....
