I looked and noticed that too, either it’s a glitch or they are really pushing the higher trims. Also, did they always charge extra $$for granite?

I know FCA likes to squeeze every nickle from us, but yes I noticed half of the paints are now an upcharge....complete BS some marketing people had a wonderful brain fart and decide to a) limit colors b) up charge everyone who doesn't want black, white, or red......FCA needs to realize this is not an Audi!

I noticed this started about 5 days ago I believe. Perhaps the shakeup of colors is coming soon.

who knows the brain trust at FCA is suspect at best. Like Jeep75th said most likely a pilot program to see how many people will opt for a higher end model to get a color they want.

A lot of manufacturers charge more for certain colors now. It isn't just FCA. Certain paints cost more to make than others. I am willing to pay a few extra dollars for a good color.

Wranglers are definitely priced in the same range as Audi now. Kind of makes me wonder why they have price increases for MSRP while dealers need to offer huge discounts to sell them?

I know that but after decades of buying Jeeps this is a first ever for paint upcharge. And after all FCA makes a ton of $$ off each Wrangler sale. Shit look at how it’d built, spot welds showing, etc. only $40-$50k suv where half the options we pay for are standard features everywhere else.

don’t get me wrong I’ve owned 7 wranglers and 5 other Jeep vehicles. I love the brand but really give us a little break sometime

The metallic paint choices get the up-charge.

Jeeps lots of jeeps
I noticed this about a month ago. Then the colors were back. Now they are gone again.

Wouldn't be surprised if FCA is trying to push buyers to higher trims and make colors "Premium."

Prices have been getting out of hand for years, however, since the JL came to market they have been downright nickle and diming.

Some other car makers play the paint color games. Only allowing certain colors on lower end versions. Trying to get customers into more costly versions to get a certain color. Hate those games, sad to see if Wrangler is joining those ranks.
