I prefer a lighter interior since my last vehicle had black. I found the black to be too hot for the South Louisiana summers and it shows everything. Don't get me wrong I like the look of back I just didn't find it to be practical in my case. Very happy with the Gray Stone in my Jeep.

Re: Dark interior vs beige

I seem to be opposite of most of you. I have a Max Steel Altitude and it has the light beige interior, including the carpet and mats. I bought the Jeep at the end of November and that first weekend when it was raining, I noticed the floor mats getting dirty. That wasn't even with any mud around. I think this is my biggest regret because there was a Mineral Gray Altitude at the dealership along with the one I bought. Had I thought about the dirty mats, I would have probably picked the other Altitude, even though I would have had to give up the panoramic roof and 430N with the Garmin nav. I have a Challenger R/T with black interior and I like it a lot better. Although like black paint, it shows debris and little white specs a lot easier than beige carpets, it won't show the muddy residue from rainy, wet feet as much. So I guess there is a trade off on the color of the interior.

Re: Dark interior vs beige

The light interior in the Altitude is greystone and has light gray carpet. The frost beige in the Limited has black carpet. The frost beige in the Overland has brown carpet. Talking about 2013/2012s.

Re: Dark interior vs beige

I had a 2004 Dark Green Chevy Avalanche with the light tan interior and was very hard to clean and keep clean. The biggest problem was wearing Jeans,Blue work pants. The color of the fabric would stain the seats especially in warm weather where you tend to perspire more. I now have the Black Leather in the 13 GC...

I've been having this issue. I love the beige interior but it needs a lot of cleaning.

On 14 the carpet is beige not black on Overland and if I remeber correctly on Limited as well. It looked scary, went with indigo.

I agree with you, that light beige carpet looks like a nightmare to keep clean. A friend of mine had a Lexus RX400 with that color carpet and it looked horrible on a very new car at the time I first saw it.

So what color is your carpet? Is it black or dark blue?

Similar to the beige Limited, but carpet is black (which makes me feel that the Limited interior will be easier to keep clean...)

Re: Dark interior vs beige

Yeah, sorry to be negative, but I think it's crazy for Jeep to offer a light color carpet in the Overland regardless of the rest of the interior color. Even in the cargo area. It is a Jeep, right? Most Jeeps, I hope, plan to see some off road action or at least some mud or snow. I love the Light Beige in the Overland especially with the contrasting piping on the seats and think it's more classy but this is pushing me more to the darker interior which i find too dark. The Limited has the dark carpet regardless which is smart. Hell, my Lexus has near white seats but still has lush black carpet and mats. Hopefully this is something Jeep changes in the future. Maybe I'll have to go with some dark mats or buy an extra set knowing I'll have to replace them.
