Could come out of the same factory in South Africa. Jeep was one of the companies that was impacted when the huge factory went on strike a few years ago. At the time they mentioned quite a few auto makers who sourced the seats from there.

As long as it doesn't say KIA across the seat back.

Maybe it will help the bolsters from looking worn prematurely.

I've been sleeping and didn't even realize you got it. A belated Congrats. I found the posted picture "before it got dirty".

Thanks. I really like it, Bill... even though it's all slobbered up now.

2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1458354084.891820.jpg

Funny that $250k Bentleys have waffle leather too, but if it makes you feel better comparing it to a Kia that's cool

I'll be rolling proudly in that saddle waffle leather in a few months

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

fwiw, and probably not much at that ...it's officially (by most high enders) called "diamond quilted"...don't know what Jeep will call it but it sounds so uber lux....

Not the same. Jeep waffled the bolsters while Bentley waffled the cushions.


I think the interior looks great, including the colors.
