Re: Is tan/brown an undesirable interior choice?

When I was looking for mine, my only interior desire was not to have beige. Light colors leather gets dirty easily and looks like crap when its dirty.

The Saddle leather looked great, and so did the black. I ended up with black and couldn't be happier. Unfortunately they replaced saddle with a dark brown for the new ones.

Re: Is tan/brown an undesirable interior choice?

I like the dark frost beige and light frost beige interior. I just wish the carpet matched the dark frost instead of the light frost. Something like did the carpet match the drapes?

Re: Is tan/brown an undesirable interior choice?

I don't have a black interior in anything: two are white with red, one triple blue, one white/blue. and both the RV and the Heep have grey. Since live in Florida, black is not a good ideaa.

Carpet is dark frost beige on my 2012. Just another reason to keep what I have.

Black interior is so bourgeois.

I'm guessing your wife doesn't like seeing ginger hair when SHE gets in the Jeep?

Re: Is tan/brown an undesirable interior choice?

I love the way the tan leather seats look but.... I don't understand why anyone likes leather seats - hot in the summer and cold in the winter.

I always go black - so much easier to hide small stains, etc.

Re: Is tan/brown an undesirable interior choice?

I see dealer pictures of the Overland frost interior where the carpet is already dirty. You would think they be a little more careful. They should just leave the factory plastic on the floors as protection.

I've never found that to be much of a factor because the natural leather adjusts to body temp pretty quickly, even with out heated and/or cooled seats. Then again, I never, never, ever get black, so that reduces the sun factor for initial "hotness"...

I've heard that light color leather seats tend to darken over time in the seat area due to clothing color dye, ESP blue jeans. My mother-in-law has this issue w/ here GM Acadia and light grey leather seats. She has gone so far as saying that she would never get light leather seats again. They now have a bluish tint to them. I did a google search and this appears to be a common problem. Lexus even now advertises a Hyde that is more resistant to this phenomenon.

Anybody experience this? We too are trying to decide on interior color.

Re: Is tan/brown an undesirable interior choice?

While I still always prefer tan/beige leather, it's true that certain garments that are not fully color-fast can stain the lighter leather when one sweats through them. That was the case in my previous ride on the driver's seat, although a detailer got most of it gone and it wasn't a factor selling a 6 year old vehicle. I had a pair of navy blue riding breeches (equestrian) that apparently were not color fast...but they were the only garment that I ever had that happen with.

It feels better. The soft nappa leather in my Overland feels a million times better than any cloth/suede/alcantara/velour I've ever felt.

My Explorer had cloth seats, it had the nice style where it had a little nap and was soft and plush, not like the meshy grainy crap most vehicles use nowdays. Guess what, it was just as hot/cold as the black leather I had after that - and that was in South Florida.

I like some khaki colored interiors. The khaki they use in the Durango Citadel looks nice (especially with the contrast with black). MB also has some nice combos with a darker khaki that creates nice contrast with their aluminum and such. I don't like the interior to be too dominated by any one color - if I didn't have the wood trim & silver piping in my Jeep I don't think I'd care for its interior nearly as much. But the contrast of the wood and piping and aluminum trim is enough to make it work in a nice package together.

Our Outlander has a very monotone interior, especially sitting in it facing forward. The seats at least have contrast stitching, and the doors have some silverfish trim, but looking out the front its a sea of black - later models added some leather with white contrast stitching to help break it up some.

Lighter interiors IMO just tend to not have enough contrast.
