Ah, so the dealer that you talked to thinks that Tusk White will be an unpopular color. That makes sense, I don't see terribly many off-white cars.What I was told was that it unless the market calls for it, is not going to be one of the higher production colors like bright white etc. So, I didn't mean it to sound like only 500 would be made like it was a limited number or anything like that.
Everything I've read here still leads me to believe that this will be a pearl coat. Several dealership websites list it as such, even if the official Chrysler web page does not. I would guess that the salesmen that people have talked to that claim it's "metallic" are either dumbing-down their knowledge or simply don't know better. My salesman was able to answer almost none of my questions correctly without looking up the answers for me and getting back to me.
