2023 Jeep Wrangler Adds Optional Weatherproof Seats and Washout Floors
The 2023 Jeep Wrangler offers two new factory-installed options: washout floors and weatherproof seats.
The heavy-duty flooring ($995) and heavy-duty seats ($1695) are now available to order on certain four-door Wranglers.
Jeep appears to be responding to similar features already available on the Ford Bronco.
Jeep fans might want to start appreciating the Ford Bronco a little more. After all, it appears the Wrangler's biggest rival is influencing the brand to introduce noteworthy features, such as the washout floors and weatherproof seats that are now available as factory options on certain four-door models.
The 2023 Jeep Wrangler can now be ordered with either of those two new individual add-ons, which are designed to help its interior better withstand the elements as well as be easier to clean. The heavy-duty flooring costs $995 and the heavy-duty seats add $1695.
When the Wrangler's top is off and the doors are removed, the cabin is obviously extra exposed. That's where the optional vinyl seats come in handy, thanks to added protection against water, mildew, tears, and more. Jeep's weatherproof seats come in any color you want as long as it's black. They also feature Light Tungsten stitching and an adorable Wrangler grille embroidered into the seatback.
Replacing the Wrangler's standard flooring for the washout option does exactly what you'd expect: It makes cleaning the surface even easier and includes integrated floor drains. Along with its improved ability to get hosed out, the black heavy-duty floor has multiple layers that are said to also provide sound deadening and thermal protection.
Unfortunately, these two new Jeep options aren't compatible with every Wrangler. All the plug-in-hybrid 4xe trims and any two-door configuration are specifically excluded from the weatherproofing fun. The 470-hp Rubicon 392 is also left out.
