It seems we have been talking a lot lately about exterior colors on various Jeep® vehicles. The American adventure brand first announced the addition of two new exterior colors for its 2023 Wrangler / Wrangler Unlimited (JL) lineup last month and earlier this week, it again announced the addition of High-Velocity Yellow to its 2023 Jeep Gladiator (JT) pickup.
But thanks to our dealer connections, we are learning some interesting tidbits about more changes coming to the 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee (WL) trio, in terms of color.
The biggest and most confusing move is the elimination of Hydro Blue (PBJ) on the three-row Grand Cherokee L (WL75) 2023 models. However, the color will remain on both 2023 Grand Cherokee / Grand Cherokee 4xe (WL74) models.
It seems weird to us that there won’t be transparency between the WL74 and WL75 models in the color department.
The next change is the elimination of the Ember Pearl-Coat (PHC) on all three 2023 Grand Cherokee models. The color continues to be shown on Jeep.com’s Build & Price configurator, however, dealers have informed us that they have gotten a “last chance” ordering availability for the color before the model year change.
There will also be a change as far as interior colors go, as well. Dealers were notified about a “last chance” ordering availability for the Steel Gray Interior (-TA) on Overland and Summit models. The color will be removed for both the WL74 and WL75 options.
Last but not least, those who love the Grand Cherokee’s Dual-Pane Sunroof (GWJ) will be said to hear it will no longer be available as an option due to semiconductor shortages. The Dual-Pane Sunroof will remain standard equipment on Overland, Summit, and Base 4xe trims. So if you are ordering a Laredo, Altitude, Limited, or Limited Black model, it will not be available for the foreseeable future.
