Dealer i bought my Lightning Lariat ER from had a black raptor land unclaimed. They usually jack them 15-20k over msrp. It's an 801 with blue interior and pano/ tailgate package. 81.6k msrp. He's asking GM about even trade across.

2 Questons:

1. Straight trade worth it? I'm not looking to keep lightning and have 23 Avalanche raptor on order. But want to dump the lightning and pick this 22 up until my Avlananche comes.

2. Blue interior is the black leather with blue suede. Can anyone tell me what the suede is like for comfort, cleaning daily wear? I have two kids and wanted to stick with the all black leather but I like the two tone blue with the black truck .

do it. i cant tell you about about daily wear, but the blue interior at raptor assault was certainly comfy, just as much so as the stock 801a interior
ETA: for kiddos, get a rear seat cover for dogs then place kids seats over that--that's what ive done and its stood up to a 4 year old, a dog, and an infant so far. knock on wood.

I have the Recaro blue interior and love it. Kinda bummed you cant get in the R but i'll trade it for the SC V8.

My 2 yr old has dumped puffs in the seat & it cleans up easily.

Get it, you wont regret it. Hopefully your 23 has the blue interior also.

Alcantara cleans up great, nothing really seems to stain it and you can clean it with a soft brush and some soapy water or get a dedicated cleaner. That said, just don't have your kids eat and drink in the car, its not that hard. Every kid I see looks fat as it is. Why we as a society have gotten to the point that a kid can't sit in an air conditioned vehicle for an hour without sustenance I don't understand. People act like it'c child abuse to tell a kid to shut up and wait for dinner.

Don't even start with the "Yeah, well I would do that but their Mom..." Shut up and wait for dinner applies double to her.

I couldn’t convince the wife on the blue interior. She likes the all black.

So now dealer has code orange in similar build but black interior except the tail gate appliqué is deleted. That’s a deal breaker honestly, unless the cost to replace the tailgate with it isn’t horrible and is worked into the deal.

If you are dead set on receiving your 23 order, then the tailgate should not be a deal breaker. CO is my favorite color on a Raptor now. So I may be a little biased.
