Antifreeze Color

I hate to ask another antifreeze question, but I am replacing my radiator tomorrow and I can't seem to get the answer to my question. I have a 2016 JK. When I look at the resovouir on my jeep, the color of the antifreeze looks pink to me. When I look online, it appears that the new antifreeze that I purchased 10yr/150K (50/50) will be purple. I then read another article that stated that the color is purple out of the carton, but then over time gets more pink in color. Just trying to get the facts, so that I can verify that I am good. Again, sorry for another question on Antifreeze.

The color can be purple but can look pink or orange. I know, not much help.

Make sure it's OAT coolant. That's the important thing. As you said, it's the 10 year/150K mile coolant.

Hmm....so, should I just use the new fluid and not worry whether itís the exact same color? Btw.. I noticed I didnít put enuf info in my post. I purchased the jeep new from the dealer and the antifreeze I purchased is Mopar I purchased from the dealer. Thx

Color is misleading and there is a lack of standardization.

Here was my thread which was quite extensive and informative

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.
