Re: Saddle Interior

Hmmm -- the back being black, why would they do that? Any pics of that available?

Re: Saddle Interior

Bozer this is the best I could find quickly. It shows the back head of the seat being black and the back bottom.

Re: Saddle Interior

Here's an Overland interior video showing the saddle leather in all its glory. Note the wood shifter and front console cup holder cover that apparently didn't make it to production.

Re: Saddle Interior

Not sure I like the light gray headliner with the saddle and black. In the overland video above it looks like saddle seats, dark frost beige (brown) seat backs and trim with a light frost beige headliner.

Re: Saddle Interior

If someone can pull their shift knob and tell everyone how it's configured, there are possibly some alternatives available that are meant for Benz shifters, such as those by Momo. Matching the wood will be most important, and maybe Mopar will add these to the accessories catalog. As for the black seat backs, if you notice in the video, the black backs continue the line of black door panels across the vehicle when viewed from the rear. I think that black will be more easily maintained than a saddle leather seat back. I'm worried about the possibly scratching of the leather if it appears as a 'wax hide' finish.

Re: Saddle Interior

Yep. My lexus has that plastic in the same place as well. That area gets scuffed up by people getting in and out of the car.

Re: Saddle Interior

I drove an Overland this morning with the Dark Frost Beige/Light Frost Beige interior. It is very sharp looking. I definitely like the consistency in all of the trim colors, including the headliner and seat backs. The brown carpet is very attractive (dark enough to hide stains, but should not show dust and lint as bad as black) and the brown leather on the dash looks sharp (it seems more distrinctive than the black). I was also pleased to see that the steering wheel leather and plastic trim is also all dark brown. This may be enough to sway me to an Overland from a Limited. I no longer have an interestin the saddle interior - just too many colors and high contrast.

How likely do you think Mopar will produce the Dark Frost Beige all weather floor mats?

I also drove a Limited with the Light Frost/Black interior. I definitely prefer the Overland. I'm sure this is personal preference, but I just don't like the strong contrast. If I end up with a Limited I will probably get the black interior.

Re: Saddle Interior

It's officially "next week" -- when can I order this interior?

As i recall, the slush mats from the accessories catalog for previous Jeeps only came in black. In the catalog for the WK2, they only show two colors of carpet mats, so it doesn't look like they are planning many variations. WeatherTech seems to make everything in black, tan and gray, whether it matches or not!

Re: Saddle Interior

Thanks for the information. This is a compelling reason to get black - you can always get accessories to match!
