Re: Just sat in the new 2014 Overland...
I wouldn't worry about the wear, look at all the cars at a show, the seats are destroyed from all the in and out. You're talking about 10 years of wear in a week, and these cars travel around the country to a bunch of shows.
I mean...my Dad had a Lincoln with a navy blue leather interior...in 1990. Blue is just not a modern interior color IMHO. I know a lot of throwback interior colors are coming back, brown, saddle, reds and deep reds, but those are warm colors while blue is a cool color, warm colors and cool colors clash, which is why IMHO the blue/brown interior looks so bad. I think all blue would have been an improvement, with the white stitching, very nautical.
So far as the Jeep brown, I don't think the all brown is as rich looking as the Saddle. I think overall the interior, even though the quality is actually better, and the displays and all are clearly better, looks less rich than the previous Overland/Summit interiors.
Some car companies have a brown that looks awesome, like Audi and Nougat Brown or Infiniti and Java, but the Jeep brown just looks drab and lifeless to me.
