True Blue - hint of purple???

Can anyone tell me about the true blue color? I love navy blue but this color is definitely not navy blue. When in the sunlight I feel like it even gave off a hint of purple or maybe a blueberry type shade. Can anyone confirm this?

Def no purple or blueberry-not that there's anything wrong with that... Well, actually there would be! It's very dark blue, looks black in the shade, metallic dark blue in sun. Zero purple. There is a photo thread in Exterior forum.

I have driven through the Jeep dealer lot by my office many times dreaming about which Cherokee I will someday get. Each time I do I come back with the same feelings. All the colors are great. IMO this can't be said about other car makers. The standouts for me are Anvil and Granite. Blue may be my least favorite but it is still good. Since I have only seen it on a Latitude I will reserve judgement on how it would look on a TH with the dark moldings. It might be really good.

On the Latitude the chrome moldings really jump out on a dark blue. I'm not a fan of the chrome moulding period. There's too much of it IMO. But after all the drives I've taken through the lot I am not "jonesin" for blue. I have gotten a hint of purple in that blue paint. Blueberry is a good descriptor. But only in certain light. Mostly it's a dark navyish blue.

I had to get blue because it was the only one without leather which I hate. Worse yet, it was in transit so I basically bought it without seeing it bi was worried I would not like it and really liked black. When it arrived I was not disappointed. No second thoughts. It's a great color. Looks black in the shade. Haven't noticed any purple hue. I think I would have regrets about a black jeep. Looks hot in the showroom but would be Impossible to not have scratches and swirls.

I have a True Blue RAM, and there is no purple in it, is a very royal blue, and chrome sets the truck off

I'm likely getting black just bc it looks so sharp (when clean at least)
The chrome does set off the blue nicely tho I agree

WAs there something red nearby reflecting on the blue? That might make it look purple. All it would take is the sun bouncing off some red in a sign.

Yeah, the metallic colors definitely take on a bit of their surroundings, didnt think the blue looked purple either (maybe a red one parked next to it)

The true blue cherokee at this link is parked in the sunlight and shows what I'm talking about with the hint of purple. It definitely has to do
With having metallic in paint IMO
