Jeeps are recognized as being red first. Maybe a classic would sport a yellow. Jeep likes to ride colors for a year or three then quickly discontinue it. For a short time, an Anvil colored Jeep appeared.
Call it a marketing ploy to get tire kickers to commit to buying that year’s model while they can. But Anvil is sort of a legendary color in the Jeep world that lingers in the hearts of many.
While it looks anvil blue Jeep calls it gray. It’s also not powder. But it is beloved by almost everyone. The Jeep Wrangler Anvil color years were roughly 2012-2014. So it is one of the many rare Jeep colors. This is officially the Jeep Anvil color:
Depending on your screen it may look different (Oh technology. You make things so much easier but more difficult at times). So why do people love the cult color classic so much? Does it make Jeeps go faster? Do you get more chicks with Anvil? Or does scarcity and novelty breed desire?

Most years Jeep offers a gray tone or a striking military tone to their fan club. They know their customer. And the customer is in the military or is into that look. Offering these color choices if an obvious move.
In the last few years, auto manufacturers have been adding an Anvil-type color to their lineups. Look at VW and Audi. Even now, the A3 came standard with:
Anvil-colored Jeep paint is readily available on Amazon typically for about $15. It comes in touch-up cans. If you want to get serious and paint your entire Jeep I would consult a local paint shop to get an accurate paint color to test and see in person. But the official color can be had online all over as well.
The official Anvil Gray Jeep color code is “PPG 933726 – gray”. Buy paint with only this color code and you should be in for a major fun paint job.
There is a Krylon chalky finish anvil gray spray paint that people love for lots of things from furniture to things found in the garage. It comes in a rattle can that, in theory, you can buy enough rattle cans and completely paint your car. Then spray a nice clear coat on top and get it done on the cheap.

The Anvil-colored Jeep Renegade looks like it should be a hybrid or almost a fully electric vehicle. Or, at the least, a full-on soccer mom kid hauler.
What do you think? Do you like Anvil Gray? Do you want Jeep to bring it back? Should it stay in Jeep’s history books?
