Laredo/E, Cloth....#2 Foam
Altitude, Suede....#5 Foam
Limited (Std)....#6 Foam
Limited (Lux II)....#1 Foam
Overland....#5 Foam
Summit....#3 Foam
SRT (Suede Perf)....#4 Foam
SRT (Laguna)....#7 Foam

I liked our 2014 Limited (Lux II) seats... until we got my 2013 Ram Longhorn. I LOVE those seats! Our Grand Cherokee's seats are a bit too stiff for me now, but still comfortable.
since we're on the subject, what is the difference between different foam numbers?!? and do these numbers apply to all seats? Or are the front and rear seats different foam types?

Re: Cherokee seats so comfy!

I remember this foam and seat stiffness conversation but I also recall it was disproved that there were so many different foam types.

Re: Cherokee seats so comfy!

My summit seats are not so comfy.........the '08 GC Limited 's' had far superior seats.
All around, I wish I'd taken a longer 'test drive' before purchasing........most likely would not have.

Re: Cherokee seats so comfy!

I really like the seats in my Overland. They are stiff enough for me while still not being too harsh.

No complaints on my Overland's seats. To each their own.

Re: Cherokee seats so comfy!

Funny. SRT seats are much more plush than the High Altitude's. Makes no sense.

Yeah.....the Altitude seats are pretty stiff.
I'm going old school, going to cover front and rear with high end sheep skin.
They should be more comfortable, protected from heat and my kids.

Re: Cherokee seats so comfy!

I found that my Overland seats have gotten alot better since I passed the 6000 mile mark.

Initially I hated the seats. Enough that I seriously considered getting the MDX instead (those seats are incredible comfortable). But not my overland seats are great. Just did a 3 1/2 hour drive without stopping and felt no discomfort or stiffness afterwards

Re: Cherokee seats so comfy!

Probably like mattresses - different foam cushion is used and also different layers with different thicknesses. It may even vary depending on if cloth or leather and the type of leather used to prevent stretching and sagging with use...

Re: Cherokee seats so comfy!

My wife's demo has been a Cherokee for that last couple weeks......Cherokee seats are more comfy than my Grande Cherokee. Miss the seats that were in MY '08 Limited 's'. Would gladly give up cooling for comfort and heat that worked.
