The biggest problem I've always had w/ a Wrangler interior is the quality of the materials....very hard, very shiny.

I GET that this is positioned as part of the rugged Jeep image; which I call nonsense on. Hopefully this new interior changes and improves to be on par w/ what we've seen from Cherokee / etc.

agreed although given the ratio of Saharas sold to Rubicon's, I'm sure this is the prudent business decision. As long as LR keeps dragging its feet with a Defender replacement, Jeep has a monopoly on this market and can continue to pack these with more expensive high margin features. I'm sure it will be just as if not more capable than its predecessor off road, so hopefully the fan boys will get over it. Instead of offering 3 nearly identically priced and sized small SUV's at one point in time, wish they'd just offer a "Grand" Wrangler that is actually comfortable and has full size rear seat but with the removable roof and 90% of the ruggedness of the Wrangler.

I also agree. This dash looks more like what would be in a Dodge Dart and not something rugged like a Jeep should have. At the same time it also does not look upscale enough for how much Wranglers tend to go for. I'd liked to have seen a much more industrial look for one.

I'm certain that painted plastic should recall old CJ series Jeeps with "bare metal dashboards", although the quantity of electric gizmos and tech in the center console kind of works against that (and in many interiors with a retro touch). The rest of the switchgear and the U Connect screen are your standard FCA parts bin units, so finding them in a new Wrangler shouldn't surprise anyone.

Generally I'm fine with what I see, the rather blocky Tonka toy styling and the fat grab handle in front of the passenger seem appropriate for a Wrangler, and I don't expect a Wrangler to have super posh materials, so the plastic looks ok for what it is.

Yes, I'm certain many Wrangler can get pricey, but so can other trucks that also don#t come exactly with an Audi or Lexus like interior, and that does not stop people buying them

That's only partially true. Cowboy Cadillacs can have rather nice interiors.

But wouldn't an Escallade be much more expensive to begin with?

"Cowboy Cadillacs" often refers to F150s, Rams, Silverados, and Sierras.

Ah ok. Well at least the RAMs definitely don't come with a better interior, and the rest IMO is also a bit a question of taste. Whilst there is more detailing, it is mostly made of "fake" materials, which, depending on personal taste of course, are not necessarily better than a honest "plastic" interior in a "sturdy" vehicle
