Hmm.... maybe there is no such thing? Although some TH people seem to say theirs is leather but with red accent stitching.

Mine is leather with red stitching, as previously stated. The door panels/armrests are also leather with red stitching. The top of my dash also has red stitching, so I'm guessing that it is leather too. I can smell the door panels and center armrest, but I can't smell the top of the dash.

My 2014 Journey Crossroad had "The Premium Leather Group" and had leather in the same areas as my TH, except that the stitching was light gray.

I'm confused, the pic shows leather on his center arm rest.... is it possible to NOT get leather on the center console arm rest?

What are you talking about?

On my Overland, the top of the dash is definitely leather (exact same feel/texture/smell as the seats, steering wheel and shift knob). The center armrest and the door armrests are covered by stitched vinyl (leatherette) material. It's good quality vinyl (and can be easily mistaken for leather particularly if you're just looking at it) but definitely not the same material as the seats, top of the dash, etc. and definitely not leather.

I smelled my seats, center armrest, and door panels and they all smell the same. I can't get my nose close enough to smell the top of the dash; I'll take your word that it is leather. I purchased my TH on August 24 and just went over 1800 miles. It still smells new inside.
