You can also own an all-new Katzkin interior on Instagram

The iconic Jeep Gladiator made a comeback after several decades and it’s already a popular topic among truck enthusiasts. A true work horse in base trim, the Gladiator can also be order with premium features and loads of accessories through Mopar. Now, you can also add Katzkin leather via a package that Jeep just showcased at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.

Luxury Upholstery

Displayed at the Mopar booth, the Sting Gray Gladiator shows off an interior fitted with Katzkin's rich Tuscany Ink leather highlighted by cool inserts and unique stitching pattern.

Called "hex tech," the hexagonal inserts are made with black stitching on the center of the back seat and looks just as fancy as the diamond-quilted patterns seen in luxury cars, including Aston Martins. The white embroidery above, shaped like the headlamps and vertical-slat grille of the Wrangler, suggests you’re still in a Jeep. The white stitching on the side bolsters complements the dark gray leather.

More to Come

This upholstery package is one of the many Katzkin features you can order through Mopar.

Both the Gladiator and the Wrangler are already available with a handful of options from the California-based company and Jeep plans to add even more to the portofolio. Just make sure you check out the Mopar options when ordering your new Gladiator.

Win an All-New Interior

The 2019 Chicago Auto Show also marks the start of a new competition through which you can win an all-new interior from Katzkin Leather.

Of course, you need to own a Jeep that’s not older than 2010, as well as an Instagram account, because that’s where the competition takes place.

All you need to do is provide a photo of your current Jeep interior and explain why they "need a new Katzkin interior." Each post needs to include a #katzkinjeep hashtag. The Instagram promotion is lead by Chicago car expert and radio personality Paul Brian and his automotive web-series partner and television host Lauren Fix.

One winner will be chosen to receive the new transformation, which will be done by a local shop. Brian and Fix will announce the Instagram competition on their YouTube-based web-series "His Turn – Her Turn." The promotion will run throughout the duration of the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.
