Re: Cloth vs Leather (Xpkg)

I wish they would allow more options with the seats, My dad wants cloth because he lives in AZ and Leather in the summer gets cooked and is always hot. The fold flat has no power and no lumbar support.

Re: Cloth vs Leather (Xpkg)

I haven't been in a base Laredo, but if the seat folds flat, I would imagine that the comfort is compromised in relation to the X on up stuff. Add in the lumbar support, and I would definitely go upgrade, leather vs cloth or not.

Gotta find some decent seat covers for the X package.

The driver seat in cloth or Xpkg leather has full power and lumbar support while the passenger only gets lumbar support if the Xpkg leather is selected. The missing passenger lumbar might be an issue for some (base cloth) but at least the driver gets full adjustment in all trim levels.

LOL...I wonder if I went with the cloth if I could swap material with you? Probably not an exact fit is my guess.

I like the cleaner lines and more modern looking vented seats available in the Limited/Overland far better.

I was surprised how good the cloth seats look. At least the grey ones; not too keen on the black ones.
LMAO at Ricardo Montalban....although I find myself wanting a Chrysler Cordoba now.
