Dark Brown Interior in a Black Jeep?

Currently I have a 2011 Overland Black with the Saddle interior. I am going to be getting a new 2015 Summit.

I have 2 questions:
1) What do you guys think about the Dark Brown interior with a Black Jeep? I need a change from the saddle interior and I am not crazy about black on black. My wives current honda has this and I need a change.

2) For the same reason as needing a change on the interior - I am thinking about getting the Auburn (brown) color on the exterior. But reading through the posts it seems like a lot of people don't think much about it and it sounds like Jeep may actually discontinue it? The problem I might have with it - is that when it is cloudy or at night - it really comes across as drab. But if it is clean and it is a sunny day - it is really beautiful in my opinion...

Thanks for your input!

That's exactly what I ordered. I had a LOT of time to think about colors but I always came back to this combo.

First, I was thinking about Granite ex and Black int - but I didn't like the the fact that Jeep decided to use the golden interior trim on that as well. I also feel that the black exterior will have a more dominant road presence.

The brown interior - for me - is the perfect choice. The golden trim matches perfectly and you don't have the different colors all over the place like on the saddle. You also get a matching headliner and I also think the brown is easier to maintain than the black. And here in Florida, a black interior is simply not the best choice.

BTW, you might also want to consider ordering the Platinum package.

Here is a Summit in that color-combo on autotrader:

2015 Summit Black / Brown / Platinum Group 1

...and here's another one:

2015 Summit Black / Brown / Platinum Group 2

I love it....

Re: Dark Brown Interior in a Black Jeep?

^^^ I was in the same boat but with a 2011 Black Overland Summit with Saddle interior (upper and lower). I really liked it but after 6-7 black vehicles I opted for a change for my 2014. Went Bright White and love it...goes great with the chrome trim and excellent with any of the 3 2015 Summit interior options...I went with Brown but think the Bright White would look great with any of them.

The Deep Auburn is really nice and with the brown interior is stunning. I just wanted a change to justify getting a 2014 from a 2011 so didn't want a dark color again.

I say, go for Bright White exterior instead of dark for change!

Re: Dark Brown Interior in a Black Jeep?

By the way, I get comments in the parking lot every week on how nice my Bright White Summit looks....

Bright White would have been my second choice after I saw pictures of it with the Platinum Group. I almost went for it (white ext./brown int.) but I admit that I didn't have the courage to switch from black to white...

I agree - White/Brown is my favorite combo on the Summit as well (have one ordered). I have had a black car w/ very dark gray interior for 11 years so like you, am ready for a drastic change!
