My dealership tracked down my jeep renegade in transit and I should be expecting it within 2 weeks. I am purchasing the White 4x4 Limited with power MySky 9speed auto with brown/ski grey interior. My question is does anyone have the leather interior with brown/ski grey? Thoughts/Comments/how do you like it?

I completely agree. Classy was the first word that came to mind when I ordered it. I plan on getting the dealership warranty that covers interior damage and cleaning on the seats/dash for the entire lifetime for the car($800-900). I think it's a must for the light color seats.

Your Dealer sells that for Life of the Car? My dealer sells that same coverage, but for 5 years, which covers that for any punctures, stains, burns etc. Which dealer offers that for life?

Agreed!

When I was initially looking at the Renegade I loved that interior, the look is on-par with many luxury interiors. However, I wanted the TH and I ended up getting the topography cloth seats. And although bark brown/ski gray seats are beautiful and unique, I realized they will only look that good for a short while.

I've had 2 cars with light interior and after a while it seemed just breathing on them got them dirty; the seatbelts, headliner, carpet, even the "Oh ****!" handles turned black. Though, the headliner for the Renegade is a newer material that doesn't seem as susceptible to grime as the old ones. The worst was when I wore dark wash jeans and the dye rubbed off onto the leather; the blue tinge never came out. I agree the dealership warranty is an absolute must because you will spend the same amount over the course of a few years on cleaning products and detailing. I would also recommend getting the all-weather slush mats just to keep everything looking pristine.

Congratulations and I am sure you will enjoy them, the seats really are classy and high quality. I would love to have the bark brown/ski gray combo to complement the Omaha orange of my TH but I personally don't want the headache, lol. :)

I wouldn't mind a light colored interior if it came with a lifetime warranty for cleaning and repairing any interior damage. Does anyone else have that warranty? Would be interesting to hear exactly what it covers.

Agreed. I badly wanted the ski/bark with Omaha orange, but I found that the upholstered seats didn't look as good as I imagined. I think the leather ski/bark would be stunning.

I love my TH black interior though.

That certainly is a beautifully-designed and upholstered interior. If there had been one like that available when I bought my Omaha Orange Renegade I probably would have thrown caution to the wind and taken it. Maintenance be damned, it looks good enough to be worth it.

My wife's Fiat has a white interior that's a mix of cloth and some leatherette-like material. She's had it since June, and so far it still looks good. And this is not a woman known for keeping her cars clean. ;)

I love the interior. It was a huge selling point for the car. I bought some leather cleaner and conditioner. I will do my best to keep it clean. I don't have children so that makes it easier

I originally wanted this color combo for my interior but when I seen one in person at the dealership, it was already somewhat dirty looking. Just seems like it could be a real pain trying to keep things clean looking. Opted for black/ grey interior and gladly I did

My Omaha Orange Limited has it. My kids chose the car because of it. Makes it really pop and awesome space to be in. The leather will just need cleaning occasionally.

Getting into a black interior after the ski grey is very dark and gloomy.

I'm looking into purchasing the Jeep Renegade Limited (Alpine White) and really like the Bark Brown/Ski Grey interior, it looks so much nicer (sharp), then the black/on black. Some I have showed it to didn't like it, and some have, I guess it's just a preference thing. It's different and to me makes the inside not look so small, as the black does.


So now to the question, has any body had trouble in keeping it clean, or jeans fading onto the seats, etc. That's my only concern.


Any info would be appreciated,
Thanks,

I have it (with Omaha Orange exterior) and love it. I waited nearly three months for this where I could have had the black interior within a fortnight.
Thus far no issues with dirt/staining, although I have a couple of waterproof seat covers waiting should I need to get in with wet clothes - I have some baby wipes in the glovebox should I need to give them a wipe (used once so far)
Personally, I think it adds an extra dimension to the interior - light, airy and classy - really pleased with it so far.

Omaha Orange with this interior may not be to all tastes but we love it. We definitely wanted something different to the grey/black fleet in the car park. We have had another car with a white leather interior for 7 years with no issues. I have bought covers and would always put these on when sending it for servicing/repairs.

Another vote for Omaha with the Bark Brown/Ski Grey. My wife and I love ours and waited extra months to get it special ordered from the factory. We've had it for about 3 months now and have only had one or two "stain" moments, one was a coffee splash, but we keep Tide To Go pens in the glove box so we can immediately deal with any issues like that.

No rubbing from jeans, I had some gear put a rub mark on the back seats when I had them folded down once, but I Tide penned it and it was good as new. Really glad we didn't wait for the 2016 because I don't think you can get this particular combo anymore.

Thanks for the information, really appreciate it. The Black to me just looks to drab, and the car that I currently own (2006 Mustang Convertible), that I will be getting rid of is Black with an all Black interior, with some chrome on the dash, so it kind of breaks it up some. This is why I'm looking for something totally different. Light and Airy feeling.
