Grand CherokeeAlcantara (what?) Coming to the Jeep Lineup
Posted by mike on 2007/10/23 7:37:32 (1574) reads

Alcantara, a high-end car interior material, will be coming to a couple models of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Commander in 2008.

For the first time ever, consumers can find Alcantara(R) in select 2008 Dodge and Jeep models. The 2008 Dodge Charger SRT-8 and R/T will offer the multi-dimensional interior as an option, as will the 2008 Dodge Magnum SRT-8 and R/T, 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT-8 and Jeep Commander Overland.

Discerning consumers are increasingly seeking Alcantara(R) when purchasing a new vehicle. The one-of-a-kind upholstery material has long been a fixture in the most legendary foreign sports cars and, more recently, in select American cars and SUVs from Chrysler, Ford and General Motors.

The versatility of Alcantara(R) is one of its strongest attributes. It can be used on door panels, headliners, seat covers, consoles or gear shift covers to create a distinctive interior design that evokes luxury and exclusivity.

Check out the official Alcantara web site.

No word yet if Alcantara is easily cleaned with a hose...

This could only help. With all the complaints about the interiors of most of the Chysler products interiors I bet the new owners will over react and we will end up seeing some really nice interiors in the coming years. Not a bad thing for us consumers.
Is this option available now on 08 or will it be added later in the model year? I haven't look at a 08 GC or Commander in person yet.

The problem with many of the Chrysler LLC interiors is the use of so much boring gray plastic. That is where I find the interior of my XK nice... the two tone dash along with the Saddle Brown seating looks very rich and everyone who has seen it was wowed that it came in a Jeep.

However, when I checked out the base model of the new Liberty I found it to be a lot of boring gray. The Limited model I looked at was quite nice though.
