Poll: Best GC Interior Color

Since I think the consensus is that the new GC (particularly the Overland) has taken the interior to a new level of luxury, I'm interested in what color scheme everyone thinks brings out its best qualities. Perhaps it can serve as a guide to folks buying.

Re: Poll: Best GC Interior Color

The saddle interior is pretty cool. Makes me think of this song:

Re: Poll: Best GC Interior Color

Thanks for the poll.

I wish someone would discuss the differences between an Overland interior in black vs. a Limited with Luxury Group II in black.

I know the dash is leather in the Overland and I think not in the Limited w/ Lux Grp II.

I know that the Limited w/ Lux Grp II does not have the white/gray edging on the seats.

Is the center console on the Limited with Lux Grp II leather?
Is the door trim on the Limited with Lus Grp II leather?
Is the wood in the limited real wood?
From a listing at a dealer with a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with Lux Grp II it states "Genuine wood dashboard insert".

I'm thinking I might like the Limited w/ Lux Grp II in black and then paint the "wood" trim gloss black.

Thoughts?

Re: Poll: Best GC Interior Color

This is the interior of my Charcoal Gray Laredo X - it is called Dark Graystone/Medium Graystone, am very happy with it! Love the dark wood accents and the beefy steering wheel!

Re: Poll: Best GC Interior Color

I actually prefer my Laredo X black interior w/ the black [faux] wood trim. I get so many compliments on how great it looks... and I agree! But there's really not a bad looking WK2 interior...

I am personally not a fan of the olive color, but the black/black in my 70th is pretty sweet, IMHO.

I have always been partial to the saddle. Not what's in my overland but it's what I prefer.

The front seats in the WK2 look like they're saying:

Agreed 100%. The dark wood in the Laredo X looks great. I'm pleasantly surprised with the 'leather' interior on my X.

Re: Poll: Best GC Interior Color

My ranking after sitting in all 4:

1) Black/New Saddle w/ Saddle Upper Trim (Overland Summit) - The Overland Summit interior looks great. I've heard some others on this board say they think it's over-the-top, but I think the pictures lend themselves to hyper-focusing on the dash color and they don't quite do the whole car justice. With the dark wood it manages to look both very luxurious and somehow a bit rugged at the same time. Perhaps it's just the unique "it's different from other car interiors" feeling, but I think it makes for a great looking Jeep.

2) Dk/Lt Frost Beige - REALLY nice and classy. Most (dare I say) BMW-like. Perhaps just a little devoid of color and I'm bit worried about the long-term wear on the light colored seats, but overall looks great.

3) Black - Black looks nice in most interiors, so it was a safe choice to look good in the GC. It does look good, but it just doesn't "pop". I've had 3 other cars were the interior color scheme looks almost identical.

4) Black/New Saddle (Overland) - I'm actually not too fond of this color combination since I think the saddle seats clash a bit with the wood color in the dash. Strikes me as a much less coherent "two-tone" than the Overland Summit.

5) Other - I just can't imagine giving up that wooden heated steering wheel that feels so good in my hands on the overland

Just one man's opinion ...
