Jeep Adds New Paint Colors to 2021 Wrangler, Including the Ram 1500 TRX's Hydro Blue
Plus, orange returns to the fold, along with another blue hue and a "Snazzberry."
You can't get a 702-hp Wrangler, yet, but you can now get the same paint job offered on the 702-hp Ram 1500 TRX pickup, a striking shade dubbed "Hydro Blue." That's the most standout development in the Jeep Wrangler's paint color story for 2021, though it's joined by a similarly alluring, lighter "Chief" blue option. Buyers lamenting last year's loss of "Punk'n Metallic" orange take note: Orange is back, baby! The Wrangler's orange paint does change slightly, with the new "Nacho" hue taking on, well, a yellower appearance not unlike nacho cheese. Finally, there also is a new "Snazzberry" paint color, a deep cherry wine shade.
The new paint colors mark a return of some bright, fun options to the Wrangler's option sheet. For 2020, Jeep had axed several of our then-favorite hues, leaving behind fewer eye-popping colors: Sarge Green, Bright White, Hellayella (yellow), Firecracker Red, Billet Silver, Sting-Gray, Granite Crystal (dark gray), and Black—all of which carry over to 2021. In a continuation of a trend that began in past years, all of those paint options are extra-cost ($245), except for Bright White.
Outside of its 12 available paint colors, of course, the Jeep Wrangler remains extremely customizable. Buyers still can pick from several roof options, including two folding cloth roofs, a hardtop with removable panels, and even a hardtop with a sliding-cloth sunroof section. (You can also specify body-color-matched paint for the hardtop on certain trims.) One open mystery at this point is whether the new-for-2021 Wrangler 392 model, the first-ever factory Wrangler with a V-8 engine, will expand the regular 4x4's paint color library. Photos of the Wrangler 392 we've seen appear to confirm Hydro Blue and Sting-Gray or Granite Crystal (we can't quite tell which it is) are in the cards, but who knows, perhaps the production version will offer an exclusive new color or two.
