Maybe it will be a late availability color? There were some more colors in Build and Price when it first came up that are not being offered now.

it is quoted on the jeep site as "granite late availability" im assuming that color only comes out in extreme sunlight in similar terrain or it is different from granite crystal http://www.jeep.com/en/2014/cherokee...ilter=exterior

The picture posted states on the jeep website it is granite so either it looks like that in direct sun with the surroundings reflecting off or since it states granite instead of granite crystal its a different color

Seeing car colors in pictures never helps. It almost always looks off unless it's a pro photographing it and your monitor is tweaked to show colors in their truest form.

Part of the problem with the paint is that Chrysler closed and sold their Chemical plant (Cycleweld) in Trenton, Michigan during their financial troubles. The foreign company that bought it stripped the plant for its machinery and sent it back to their home country. Then the foreign company leveled the plant. This was just down the road from the Trenton engine plant. Chrysler used to make their own paint at Cycleweld as well as other chemicals needed for car manufacturing, along with brake linings. I know this because my dad helped install the paint mixers at Cycleweld before he passed away. To the best of my knowledge Chrysler buys all of their paint from third parties now so that limits their control over it.

Granite is a very cool gray. I looked at a GC in granite recently.

Yeah, you're absolutely right. Very weird. That looks nothing like the "live" pictures from the reveal or the pictures posted earlier in this thread. Maybe you're right that the crystal is different. I hope my Jeep doesn't look brown. The GC that I saw didn't look brown in the slightest.

Just got into work and saw a Granite Trailhawk waiting to go into service (PDI - Pre Delivery Inspection: basically peeling off all the stickers and plastic wrap). After they're done I'll try and get some well-lit pics and post them here.
