It also looks like a rendering/CGI, so I wouldn't put too much stock into what you're seeing.

one helluva rendering.... that's a photo

I kinda wish the vinyl seats came with the First Edition! I practically live in the outdoors, we have 7 national forests, a national park, and countless BLM lands 5-15 min from our house. Our Subaru Forester has leather seats and when we got caught in a sand storm with the windows down (our stupidity got the best of us) it was a pain in the butt to clean up. Not to mention loading two muddy dogs in the back after hikes. Hopefully the leather will have a protective coating for rain or washing it down.

My Searay boat seats had marine vinyl. It can actually be pretty nice, not like that squeaky hard plastic stuff you picture in your head. I think it’s a brilliant idea for an open air 4x4. I had a CJ-7 in high school and always had the top off and freaked out when it rained. This will be a huge improvement. These pics are off the Searay website (sold my boat a couple years ago)

I saw these on IG. I saw 6g postings where this color combo appeared to be cloth, but in this case i see no carpet and the shine on the material says not cloth. Maybe this is known, but new to me. If it’s the marine vinyl, I dig it

Moreover, you get yet another angle ( and different hue) of cactus grey. That and area 51 gives ME chest pains.

I would love something like the cool vInyl that Mastercaft uses. I hate sounding like a mall crawler, but my a** sweets. :giggle:

Yeah this is what I'm curious about with the marine vinyl. I'm between Big Bend and Black Diamond. I would love an easy to clean interior(dog hair is the bane of my existence in my Silverado).

However I'm unsure of the livability of the vinyl in hot climates whether the top is on or off. Seems to me that vinyl in 105 degree temps with no ventilated seats would be a recipe for burned legs, swamp ass, and back sweat. Anyone with a boat in the south have experience with this?
Everything gets hot and swampy in my experience. Cloth is the best in terms of not scorching your legs/ass, but it’s horrible to keep clean. I’ve had leather in my last two vehicles, but it’s hot to the touch. Durability is better than cloth. Vinyl is basically as hot as leather, but easier to keep clean and potentially more durable. One of the key appeals of vinyl is that it basically wipes or rinses clean. In Florida, sand gets everywhere and is a bitch to get out of perforated leather seats. I want easy to clean vinyl.

So is my ass gonna sweat in these big time or what? Gotta be worse than leather. But in the images, they don't remind me of boat seat vinyl.

I was going to joke that instead of vinyl, they used Nauga hides in the 80's until all the little Naugas went extinct.
However, after checking the spelling, that could very well be what it is...

We used Naugahyde in the Navy. I've taken many "Nauga-naps" between drills or training. It's not the Naugahyde that will make a seat uncomfortable, it's how you stuff it. I'm sure Ford has thousands of hours of testing on this to ensure it meets our expectations. As soon as I saw its availability I knew I was either getting Badlands or BD.

Love that light interior is (almost surely) marine vinyl. With that, I think great colors to pair are Area 51, carbonized gray and silver. .... black too but I won't own another black SUV that gets hotasfuk!
