Update: well, shit. I really thought that perhaps it was an end-of-model-year manufacturing restriction, that Bikini would come back for 2021.
Sadly, 2020 keeps on giving with its awfulness, and not only is Bikini not on the 2021 order guide, but neither are Punkin’ and Mojito. Mojito in particular would have been a nice consolation prize. And Ocean Blue, which was verrra nice too, is kaput.
Colors still available for Wranglers:
Silver. Black. White. Granite Crystal. Sarge Green. Sting-Gray (barf). Hella Yella. Firecracker Red.
5 greyscale, 1 dull green. 1 red, which meh, and 1 yellow.
Bad Jeep. Bad.
Pour one out for Mojito and Punk’n and Bikini and Ocean.
In a moment of weakness today I decided to explore the Jeep.com builder, and I was saddened to discover that the fabulous Bikini color, the only Jeep color that could seriously make me reconsider my devotion to yellow, has vanished.
Jeep, how could you? You keep 3 shades of grey, plus black and white, and you drop the most head-turning color you’ve introduced since hyper green, which frankly ugh.
Now I know what I’ll harass Mark Allen about if I ever bump into him again at the Toledo Jeep Fest.
