I like the light frost beige because it makes the interior bright. Had black interior in my previous GC and while it was good, it gets too boring after a while. Wife's Cayenne interior is grey and we like it too.

Sit in each of the interior and see how you like it.

Nothing "lush" about black. Dark, drab, dreary, yes, but not "lush."

Agree the light beige carpet is what steered me to the darker indigo brown combo instead (which I'm very happy with). Would have considered beige if they did same as limited with dark grey on floor to break up beige some plus easier to keep clean.

Re: Dark interior vs beige

I wanted the lighter interior but after looking at two of them at the dealer I realized that there was already dirt and scuff marks on the leather and doors just from people getting in and out of them. Like other said, the 2014 beige is closer to white. I went with the black and so did my Mother-in-law when she bought her 2014 Overland.

I am very, very happy with the black interior and tinted windows keeps the heat levels down in the summer (vented seats helps too).

Re: Dark interior vs beige

I really have to shake my head in wonder at all this concern about a light interior. We have a tan interior--everywhere, no black--in our SUV that's seven years old and has 70k miles. It's clean as a whistle and the only cleaning that has to be done is of the steering wheel and shift lever, and that's about every two years.

And anyone that says black doesn't show dirt has never owned a car with black paint. Put a black rug in your house and see how often you're vacuuming it.

Not everyone has the same lifestyle. For you, a light interior might work. From what I have seen, the 2014 JGC interior is closer to white and shows dirt/scuffs almost instantly. I bought a black interior to help hide that dirt/scuff until I can clean it. A brown, gray or black mark from dirt or a scuff will show up on black, but not nearly as much as on a tan/white interior.

Also, when you clean the carpet or leather and can't quite get all of the scuff or dirt off, a light interior will show that more than a dark one. The rubber soles of mens' dress shoes is a good example of leaving constant black scuff marks on the plastic areas when getting in and out of the Jeep. Black hides this better. If you wear flip flops or leather sole shoes or tennis shoes that don't leave marks then you might not experience this.

Everyone's experience may differ. I left marks just getting into the Jeep at the dealership and I was trying to be careful.

Re: Dark interior vs beige

Yeah, went with beige as it gets pretty hot down here and with tints the car keeps somewhat cool inside.

Re: Dark interior vs beige

I actually had both the 14 limited with the beige/dark interior and the 14 overland with the beige/dark interior. I like's the limited's interior much better. The contrast of the black carpet and beige seats looked so sharp. Just my opinion.

Re: Dark interior vs beige

Reviving an OLD thread here:

I'm thinking along the same lines as most here. I like the lighter interior but the carpet is a bit concerning for me. Too bad they didn't match it up with the dark brown dash, or just go black on the Overland.

Has anyone put the black slush mats in their beige Overland? If so, does it make it instantly cheap or is it an OK match?

Why not go with an aftermarket mat that has color options?

I put black floormats in my beige interior 325i and not only does it look great, but I don't have to worry abot staining it every time It rains or whatever
