Cherokee seats so comfy!

I drove the cherokee trailhawk yesterday and the front seats are super comfy. I wonder if you can swap them on wk2. The front seats on the wk2 are so not comfy.

Re: Cherokee seats so comfy!

Seat comfort varies greatly from one individual to another. Personally, I love the seats in my Overland. Others may think they're too hard.

I suppose you could swap out just about anything if you're willing to throw the money at it. Or, save it and the headache and just buy the Cherokee.

So equating it to this analogy, you're looking to do a boob job on a GC.

'Just a reminder that we have many female members here at Jeep Garage including several on the moderation team...so perhaps different analogies may present better.

Yeah, but then next thing you know, you'll be putting a bra on it...

For what it's worth, I find the Limited seats comfy. They also conform to my body a lot better than the flatter surfaces of my previous F150 seats.

The only issue is, with the leather, I really, really make use of that remote start on really hot or really days. Finished leather is like a cooking griddle on hot days and ice in the cold compared to the cloth on my last two vehicles.

My first car had leather and I really made use of the sun roof to evacuate the heat on summer days. Black car + black leather seats = yowzaa!

I miss that car, though. It was a pretty badass first car.

Re: Cherokee seats so comfy!

I've read there are actually seven different types of foam cushion for the seats in the 2011+ Grand Cherokee, depending on your trim level and options. So not only is seat comfort dependent on personal tastes, but its also dependent on what trim levels you've tested out.

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.

Re: Cherokee seats so comfy!

We have both a GC Overland and a Cherokee limited. The Cherokee's seats are more comfortable when first sitting in them, but since the GC is our long distance car, I can't really say how the Cherokee seats would be for a 400+ mile stint. Though with the size of the gas tank and the thirst of its V6, I guess it doesn't really matter, we'd be stopping regularly anyway!

Overall, from what I do know, I slightly prefer the Cherokee's seats.

Re: Cherokee seats so comfy!

I came from a 13 Audi Q5 with great seats into a new Overland. It took me about 5k miles before the GC seats started to be comfortable and soot my fat butt. Perhaps over more time they'll get even more comfy. But I have noticed a big improvement from day 1. For what its worth.

Re: Cherokee seats so comfy!

The Cherokee seats are contoured slightly better IMHO and gives you a more snug fit. The GC seats are bigger and firmer- a larger guy will benefit more from it. Personally the firmer seats are actually better for you from an orthopedic perspective. I never feel the slightest bit uncomfortable even on longer trips.
