2014 Summit with Saddle interior

I test drove the 14 with the Hemi and loved it but am waiting on the diesel. My question is while I like both the black or brown interiors, I prefer something lighter in color than the brown with the Black exterior much like was available in the 13 model year. Any other interior choices for the Summit in the pipeline?

Re: 2014 Summit with Saddle interior

Milos just indicated in another thread that there has been no indication about any potential future interior options at the present time.

For the record, I'm also a lighter interior guy and as I've mentioned before, if I were buying a MY14, I'd have a real conundrum...preferring the Summit, but potentially pushed into an Overland just to get a palatable interior color.

Re: 2014 Summit with Saddle interior

I'm going to be ordering an Overland rather than a Summit for just this reason. I do not like dark interiors (my 07 is khaki/greystone) .. I do wish New Saddle was still available, that might be a contender.

Re: 2014 Summit with Saddle interior

Saddle would have been awesome in the 14's, but they didn't carry it over and instead put it in the 14 Compass. That was my complaint initially as well since it took me forever to convince my wife and once she agreed, I had the rug pulled from underneath me with Jeep no longer having it as an option.

Re: 2014 Summit with Saddle interior

We so wanted the saddle and black and were very disappointed in it not being available in the 2014. Some designer needs to be fired. We had to settle for the black in the overland. The new 8 speed transmission and other upgrades in the 14 outweighed the interior color.

Re: 2014 Summit with Saddle interior

I am just now coming back to the forums. I had a 2011 4x4 Hemi White GC Overland with the saddle interior. It looked good for about 3 months and then the saddle color started coming off on the driver's side seat. Maybe they corrected this problem.Traded the Jeep after a year for a car that got better gas mileage (job change-2 hr drive/day). Moved 3 minutes from new job. Now I want my Jeep back, this time a Summit. Just trying to decide 6 or 8 cylinder. Don't want diesel

Re: 2014 Summit with Saddle interior

ive got the 11 summit since new. Had a slight discoloration on driver out edge of seat from wear but thats been it. 3yrs this april 38k miles and interior still looks new! Love my interior and is the only reason I have not upgraded. I couldnt imagine switching from saddle to dark brown. For once I appreciate the old vs new!

Go for the V8, highway mileage will be similar, city mileage you will get benefit from the V6. I can get 25mpg on highway just cruising at 65 mph with V8 better than I thought it would be. If you are mostly city driving you may be better with the 6 if you are concerned about mileage

Yep - I still love my Brilliant Black 2011 Summit with full Saddle interior. I still get comments on it. Great great great combo! Hard to give it up for an all black interior so keeping it for now!
