The same standard interior colors are available. Black, Black/Dark Saddle, and Back/Dark Olive (Sahara Only). However, Jeep did add the option to select Amaretto leather seats with the Premium Sound and Leather group. The picture of the white Sahara is the same that's been used in years past, and is indeed Saddle.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So the photo floating around with the very dark brown seats is from the premium leather/sound option? Looks like the same leather that is in the "Brown" GC Summit.

Can you, please, try on Sunday to grab us a P/N for them too?

The 2017 Brochure....

I recognize several of those pictures from past years. Those of you who are obsessing over colors, good or bad, remember that in these pictures, the color is simply "photo shopped", and might not be all that accurate.

Along these lines, I see the picture of the white Sahara with the top off, driving on an open highway, is back. This is the one with the "photo shopped" spare tire. You can tell this because it is "mounted" with an opening in the wheel at 6'oclock, and a spoke at 12'oclock (which is an impossibility).

Yes. The Red Rock Concept had the Amaretto Katzkin leather. I hope whoever opts for that color in 2017 is wise enough to order the all black interior, as I couldn't imagine how badly this color may clash with the dark saddle lower dash and door panels 😳

I would reserve judgment until we actually see the "Sound&Leather" amaretto color. This is based on the experience that we know that the "Sound&Leather" black color is actually gray. The amaretto could be off too.

If you mean the photo below, it's not the Amaretto Katzkin seats. The photo is what shows when when you select Dark Saddle leather on the 2017 Build and Price tool, on Jeep.com The rendered color in this new photo is significantly different from the previous year's.

2017 Dark Saddle


2016 Dark Saddle

You are right Walt. One can look at any number of pics and see that unless they managed to get the same exact mud and park over the same exact blade of grass with two vehicles, they are just shopping them.

And the colors change a lot under different lighting conditions even if they are not Photoshopped.

I do find it interesting the only color not listed is Rhino.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Ya, that interior pic posted above is why I brought it up yesterday.
This is far beyond a color correction issue.
Clearly it's misleading if it's NOT the correct color.
Those two browns are WIDELY different and in no way can be called the same color.
Either Jeep has made a mistake in posting that pic on their build website (which technically isn't live yet) or a change has been made and we haven't been told.

I really hope I get the original lighter brown.
It's not that the darker version is a bad color, I'm just so use to seeing the lighter version.

Also, I got the black/dark saddle cloth, not leather which is in those pics.
With the really dark seats, I really want the lighter contrasting lower dash.
