Stone Interior, Floor Mat Color??

Ordered a 2010 EL Ingot Silver with strong interior. Want to get some heavy duty rubber floor mats so they are ready to go when I take delivery. Need help choosing what color of floor mats to get (as I haven't seen any good pictures of stone and haven't seen it in person).

That's easy. All you need to do is to choose the right color, to check if its durable, and lastly if it is cheap.

I have the camel interior and I put black in there to see how I liked it. I didn't. Too much of a contrast. I put tan that is little bit darker than camel, but it matches well. Weathertech liner for the back and third row. Covers 95% of the carpet. I got the Kraco universal rubber all weather mats for the front. Works for me.

Black would be fine, but I have black rubber mats in one of my cars, and if you get in with muddy feet, the light colored mud looks pretty bad. I vote camel, or whatever other color matches the interior but maybe goes a shade or two darker.

In the long haul, it really doesn't matter. I usually think too hard about stuff like this, only to ignore it for the next 5 years if the mats do their basic job of protecting the carpet.

I agree. Take a black towel and put it in there and see if you like it. In the end, black is easier to hide stains. My 07 Expy had all black interior. I thought man, its hard to keep lint, etc off the carpet- I wish I had a diff. color. I then got an 08 with Camel and I thought man, every speck of dirt shows up on this carpet, I wish I had black back!

good point about the mud. Hadn't thought about that aspect.


Gotta say I agree with the Camel/Tan color based on that alone

too true. I can vacuum it, turn around to get something and the carpet is dirty again

As a related note, does anyone have any good pictures of a stone interior? It sounds like a gray carpet with a tan/grey leather. I chose it after having black because the light colors show less wear on the leather. I saw a couple used with black interior on the lot and the leather looked 10 years old, even though it was just 1 or 2.

I vote for ANY color than black, shows dirt to bad, and as eddiemoney said shows wear worse than the lighter colors. FWIW.

My interior is "stone," which is Tan. Not heard of camel color. I think the options were stone and black on the XLT in '97.

These are HD mats I use to keep the mud and dirt out of the vehicle. The rear compartment cover is invaluable when we're camping.

Definately looks kind of light tan in those pictures. Any one have some good pictures with a stone interior of the variety of textures in the vehicle and different colors, floor, inner seats, outer seats, dash, sills, etcetera?
