Choosing a Vehicle Color

Creating the Jeep or truck of your dreams will, in most cases, mean that you want to change the color of its exterior. Choosing the color is a critical part of this upgrade, so let's delve into the philosophical and emotional parameters of the color you pick for a truck or Jeep.

1. Thirty-two percent of women find drivers of pickup trucks most attractive, according to Amy Denise, editorial director of Insure.com. Sports utility vehicles, such as Jeeps, come in third (after sports cars) at 16 percent. The same survey shared that black was the top most favorite color that women liked to see a man driving. Denise added that a full-size truck owner could likely fix a leaky pipe. And those men who are not upset by a $100 fill-up are probably not finance-obsessed. It also shows their the type of guys that regularly have a $100 bill in their pockets.
She also thinks that a Jeep Grand Cherokee, in whatever color, is a chick magnet.
2. In 2017, CBS News reported that men had become interested in the colors yellow and orange for their vehicles. Women's choices for 2017 were teal and gold. Men favored yellow more than women by 33.9%.
3. The top three overall colors in the US, for all vehicle types, are:
Silver - 23%

How Color Can Affect Your Trade-in

1. Neutral colors, such as grey, white, or black, hold their value because of their broad appeal. White has a reputation for being difficult to keep looking clean.
2. Neutral colors help by keeping your car's value where it should be. But less favorite colors, like, let's say, purple, orange, yellow, can vary your resale price from hundreds to thousands of dollars.
3. Not only the color of your vehicle but also the quality of the exterior paint job will make a difference in the way potential buyers view your automobile and in keeping your resale value stable.

Color Psychology

Some individuals make it their business to find how the influence of color, in all parts of an individual's life, matter. In the 1970s, to discover how color influences people's mood and behavior, studies were performed by scientists. Many major international companies, government institutions, and design entities trust the accuracy and power of these studies.

Different personalities have an affinity for specific colors, often without even knowing it. But most experts say we should follow our instincts where color is concerned. These car colors, say some, show these characteristics:

• Black - powerful
• Grey - cautious
• White - fastidious
• Blue - reliable, trustworthy
• Silver - glamorous, cool
• Red - flamboyant
• Green - traditional
• Orange - fun
• Bronze - thrifty, sensible
• Yellow - young at heart, optimistic
