It depends on the options you want. They have a lot variations/designs that you could could do your seats in and that picture is of a standard variation for a 2021 Ranger XLT, since there's nothing for the Bronco as of yet. (but they've stated they will be making stuff for the Bronco once they get their hands on one)

You would have to call and/or email Katzkin and talk with them, if you didn't see something you liked, which could affect the cost.

This is from another member in a thread not long after the materials walk-thru video.

It's not cheap, but if you go cloth (interior on the WT) and depending on how you customize, it could be cheaper than the leather upgrade cost or roughly the same.

They seriously have a lot of ways to customize seats, it just depends if you consider it a worth while upgrade.

Also of note, they don't only do Leather seat covers, but it's the only thing listed on their site, so it can be misleading.
I know vinyl is an option, but not sure about cloth. You would actually have to talk to them to see.
But no amount of seat covers can change the sandstone dash or the sandstone door inserts. It'll likely end up an even larger Frankenstein disaster of an interior.

If the upper and lower dash was black. I’d live with the tan/black leather seats.

or better yet; offer the All Black interior like the FE.

So as a blue collar guy, I’d give those beige armrests maybe a week before they got stained and dirty as hell.

I can get past the seats and maybe the light dash but I’d be worried about the dash reflecting light, there’s a reason most dashboards are black.

My biggest hang up IS the dash color.
The door inserts and arm rest are not so much of a problem (to me) and it doesn't bother me that cloth seats are manual adjust.

**disclaimer**
I'm a former auto body repair and refinish tech and had to deal with my share of interior stuff. (even full dash removal and replacement) I realize that I'm an exception to the rule and not your average buyer, so my view on things can be skewed to the way I see things from my point of view.
I do not expect the average buyer to go this far/extreme.
**

With that, if I were to go back to Wildtrak and actually make it my order, the first thing that would happen when I got it home would be to pull off the drivers door panel. I would then access what is holding/attaching the armrest and insert to the door panel and if they could be reattached in a manner so as to be solid again and not look butchered. Since I'm also a 2-door only, I would also outline the body color insert in wax pen to give me an idea of how I would approach that.

If the armrest and insert can be feasibly reattached, then I'd have them recovered in black leather. The dash is a whole other can of worms that would require me to loosen trim parts from it and access what the dash is actually made and how to approach it. (re-color it then Flock the surfaces would be one example, but all hinges on what the dash material is)

Now, I know I make it sound so simple, but it's not, so please re-read my disclaimer and understand that NO ONE, including myself, should HAVE to go to this extreme to get an interior that we would like and/or accept on a vehicle that can approach $60k price tag.

BUT, if the Wildtrak comes across as my best bang-for-the-buck option should I move away from Base, then you can bet I would go this far and scour for any information I could get on what the dash panel material is.

Of course, this all hinges on if Ford decides to add another interior color option that's less polarizing than the choices that are currently on it.

*sorry for the long winded reply*

One would think Ford made the Bronco with a purple and fuchsia interior with how many complaints there are. The sand/black combo is a fairly normal look. Though I do understand the lack of an all black option for Wildtrak is odd.

The Bronco interior design team has to be the weakest link in this rollout. The Badlands black MGV would be the only terrific choice, and that was IF they used black stitching instead of the God awful yellow. Instead it's just ok. They completely shit the bed with these color combinations. 🤦‍♂️
Sorry, but the B&P team may take the honor of "weakest link"........the two groups are, however, running neck and neck to the finish line....

I basically have *no* idea what you are talking about, and I take your word for it... but because I don't know what you're talking about, I'm not sure whether this is information you need/want:

The body colored inserts on the 2-door appear to actually be part of the metal in the door.

Love it!
I’m debating between ox white and Area 51 and yes even the number of doors...I was leaning towards the 4 door but man do I love the looks of the 2! I think this version of Area 51 is sweet but not sure if it will be a chameleon and change shades to where I will eventually grow tired of it..

Yeah, it's part of the actual door frame, that's why I would outline it to see how to approach it.

It would more than likely end up being refinished in some way with paint and clear-coat or something like raptor liner/bullyliner.

There would also be the option to Flock it, but using Flock comes with it's own quirks. It's kind of like an alcantara finish and feel, in a way, (it's kind of hard to describe) and can be a dust magnet.
It's plus side is it eliminates any glare off of the dash from the sun, if used there, and could work in that area because it's flat/eggshell like appearance/sheen.

I know of another way that could be used to recolor the dash (not Duplicolor plastic paint), but I need to ask a few more questions about it. But, with either method, the dash has to come out, there's no other way around it.

This interior white/grey MGV basically says TAKE ME TO THE BEACH and park next to a Jeep to show off !!!!! The sandstone and tan in the WT says please put my top and doors back on.....
It’s been reported that that interior is actually cloth. Looks great though!
