2020 Jeep question?

Crazy question. I went to order a new 2020 green Sahara or Rubicon. I asked for the electric roof height altitude blacked out package with a radio upgrade with navigation! I was told they do not make it in green any other color! How can that be? I was told not with navigation! I can get it in a 2019 but no electric roof!, craziest thing I ever heard. You can try and build it to order it but won't let it save ? Need help! TIA

I'd get a blue WJ instead.

With a trip to your local paint shop you can get any vehicle in any color. Buy a white one and take it to your local paint shop.

Have them wrap it green and demand it included in the sale or you walk, make it a big deal.

Well that's just ludicrous. If I were you at this point, I'd take it upon myself to order the regular green and cut the roof with a hacksaw. For navigation, I'd go smart and get a compass, no map update needed. If that still doesn't do it, I'll tag along and take it to the street with ya until I get the car I deserve that's going to loose 25% of its value as I drive it off the lot.

I've heard you can get a WJ in green. With electric roof. With navigation.

In the relentless sunshine furnace of Texas, there are two types of people who get only white vehicles. Those who do and those who will.

I'm in the sunshine state with my black WJ. Recently had all of the windows tinted 30% including 80% on the windshield. Made a yuge difference in interior temps. My beater is a blue '07 Impreza and I've been driving it to work in the last week and while it has tinted windows (no windshield tint) it is definitely way hotter in the interior after sitting all day. But the Subaru's A/C system is the best in any car I've been in which is a yuge contrast to the WJ.

Check this out:

https://www.motor1.com/news/367916/t...lack-cars-hot/

My '99 black WJ is a furnace - always has been, and the paint is completely oxidized on the upward facing panels to the point that it looks like a deliberate matte paint job. My white WJ is two years newer but it still has a little gloss/clearcoat left on those same upward panels. It's kind of obvious that the white car is going to be cooler but the difference discussed in that article is surprising. Even between white and silver the difference is more than I would have guessed.

I'll never buy another dark colored vehicle unless I find a deal that's simply too good to pass up!

You posted your question in a forum where our Jeep Grand Cherokees are 20 years old, some being 15 years old. Some are somewhere in between. Please look for the proper subforum and you might get more help.

Cool article.

Black or red colored vehicles have always been "deal breakers" for us. We've had both and never will again!
Black is too darned hot and red fades too quickly.

Go to a different dealer. Hopefully one that is competent and is not bull****ting you in order to sell whatever they have leftover on the lot.

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.

The dealer is dicking you around. I just did a build on Jeep.com with the sky roof on a Green Rubicon.
