King Ranch interior

I was sure that I read somewhere that Ford was offering black interior on the King Ranch but I have not been able to find any pictures. Anyone heard this or am I just wishful thinking again. I am going to order mine within the next couple months and want King Ranch but I do not like the color of the Leather.

Thanks for any and all help.

I don't like the color of those seats. They look like dead cow to me. The black interior King Ranch still has those ugly seats from what I saw with black trim interior surrounding them.
It looks better but those seats are still cow brown.

Ford does make a black interior option for the King Ranch and that is what I have. I like it very much and the color of the leather looks awsome with the black. I did notice that on pictures it almost looks orange but it does not look that way in person.

With the KR interior you are actually choosing the "environment" color, not the leather. The color of the leather is the same whether you order black or adobe...

I do wish I had gotten the black interior... but I took an off-the-lot truck and I'm happy enough with the tan. it matches my two-tone

FYI - The King Ranch is just that... a Ranch. The interior package is intended to give that "high class cowboy" feel by using leather that is similar in color to saddles, tack, etc. I understand it's not for everyone. Just saying that they didn't choose that color by accident. Personally, I have been in love with the "saddle" look since they began offering it, and I am thrilled with finally being able to afford one. Of course, I was also born and raised in TX so the King Ranch is a very familiar icon to me.

How much different is the leather quality in a KR versus a standard leather interior? When I was looking at them at the dealer, the KR appeared to be a thicker leather. I didn't go for the KR because I just didn't like the color but it did seem to me to be a more robust leather.

there was a thread about this not too long ago where a bona fide leather expert chimed in. I can't tell you the details he could, but yeah it's a different leather. The lariats use a combination of leather and high-tech vinyl whereas the KRs are all leather. it's thicker with a different texture, but not the same as previous year KRs. It would be worthwhile to search for that other thread... the guy really seemed to know his seating surfaces.

I just found that thread and your right it is very informative. Thanks

I just wish they would make this "better" leather in black it would look soo much better. The name of the other thread is "lariat leather" by the way for those who may want to read it.

I love my KR leather. It looks so much better and is of higher quality. After this truck, I will never order Lariat leather.

Cleaning Leather seats in the King Ranch

Does anyone know a good way to clean the leather seats in my F150 King Ranch truck? I was told that you couldn't clean them, but there's got to be a good, safe way to do it. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
