To keep the emphasis on the driver, the driver seat is Mopar Blue while all other seats are black wîth blue accent stitching. The centerpiece of the interior is a floating island bezel that is accented wîth Mopar Blue paint and lighting. The interior is further enhanced wîth rich details, including Mopar Blue accent thread, as well as light-black chrome and gloss-black elements.
