    I love it. I hope the production version keeps most of the fine touches.

    Pretty truck.
    But how is leather not a sustainable resource?
    Other than the pandering, looks like a winner.

    I don't know about the the front end. But i am not the one to criticize about front ends because I bought a 2014 Cherokee! Fortunately, I still love the Cherokee 74000 mi +. No hassle. I passed it on to my daughter​

    Why did this happen, why was this trial ballon unleashed so close to the real thing.
    I'd likely like it better had i never seen the Chinese Commander.
    I like the interior, and accents/trims on the exterior.
    Not sure about the overall exterior design. i feel like its a watered down version of what was an original good design.
    Not sure the exterior compares with the Cadillac or Lincoln competition.
    Don't really feel like the designers raised the bar or got to creative.

    Without considering how the animals are likely treated, there are many resources required over the lifetime of the animal to feed it, contain it, etc.

    [​IMG] That would be cool on the hood of the new model. Keep "WAGONEER" but add the badge. I guess I'm just old school.

    We're going to eat them, those (sustainable) resources will remain in use regardless.
    Not using their hides is a waste of resource.

    There is still plenty of demand for leather in other vehicles and industries that the hides won't be wasted. This will appeal to someone who neither eats meat nor wants animal hide used in their vehicle. A smart move for Jeep IMO to demonstrate caring about the environment, not just recklessly driving through it.

    OPTIONAL non leather interior....... is the way to go...... If they build this thing without premium leather interior it is DEAD on arrival.

    I’m sure the standard would still be leather. But for those of us who don’t want leather or cheap cloth, it’d be nice to at least have the option of something else. There aren’t that many options out there yet. And yes, I would indeed pay extra for the option because I don’t expect it to be the norm.

    Agreed here, I don't care for leather interiors, but do like a few upscale goodies that I couldn't get without the leather in my DS

    I don't see a point in insisting that there be yards of dead animal skin in my vehicle when something else looks just as nice and could even be more durable. I do have leather in my Grand Cherokee because I like ventilated seats, adaptive cruise control, the panoramic sunroof and other features that aren't available on models with cloth.

    With all due respect ...... Ryan you are not in the targeted demographic for this Jeep. Those that are considering this type of vehicle have had 25+ years of buying vehicles with leather interiors and their expectation is that it have premium leather. They have been told for decades that premium vehicles come with leather and real wood trim. Meeting and surpassing "expectations" is the name of the game......

    Its like the Chrysler 200's FAILURE to understand that renaming the entry level "Limited" did not help it sales....... You have no idea how many previous customers of Chrysler products were dissapointed when they saw that the new "LTD" had no chrome or leather interior as they did in their last vehicles......

    I understand that. It's a personal thing. But the number of people who don't want animal leather in their luxury vehicles is growing, which is why other luxury brands have started offering it as an option.

    I probably wasn't the target demographic for my Grand Cherokee either.
