2004 VUE Red Line
Default Black Interior?

So everytime I see a 2004 RL like mine they have either a gray or tan interior. Mine has black. Is this just really rare, or aftermarket?

Do you have the black sport seats that are leather with the suede inserts, and hefty side-bolsters?

I believe with the 2006 Vue styling update inside and out, all Red Line models had that black/suede interior. Before that the RL interior was nearly identical to other models.

Sounds like an aftermarket job. In 2004, the only choices were tan or grey. Are the door panels and carpet all black too, or just the seats?

Default Re: Black Interior?

The Ebony package of '05 was a preview essentially of the interior style made standard in the 06-07 RL's. The Ebony package as in my 05 consists of black leather/faux suede seats with more aggresive bolsters, a gunmetal colored center stack, black carpets with the redline logo stitched in to the floor mats, and a black center console.

If yours is a used vehicle, maybe the original owner swapped some of the 05 Ebony package bits into your 04.

If it's an 04, it's aftermarket The ebony package came about in mid-05 and was standard in all 06-07 and now all 08 Red Line VUEs as well.

Our 04 had grey leather and we were planning to swap in the 05 ebony interior into the 04 (so far all we'd gotten was the black center console), so it's very possible someone else did that also. Obviously our 07 has black interior.

Yeah all they did was just the seats. My doors are two tone black/gray, the center console and carpets are all gray as well. "hefty side bolstering" does not describe my seats at all, haha.

I guess it had gray seats before and they had it done up with some black leather.

Looking at the pics of your hatch area from your gallery, you definitely have an aftermarket upholstery job. I liked the Ebony package, except for the fact that they couldn't even match the carpets. The carpet on the back of the rear seats wasn't the same color as the hatch carpet in the models I've seen.

I think at some point I'm going to get fed up with my drab gray/tan interior and rip out all the carpet and the headliner, take out all the interior parts and have them all painted a gunmetal gray and put in dark gray or black cloth and carpet everywhere, and have the seats restuffed and recovered or at least re-dyed. You can easily recolor leather. It's been dyed once, it can be dyed/colored again! While all the carpet is out and the interior pieces are out, I'll be putting in some serious sound deadening material... floors, walls, roof and all. Sounds like a good winter project.
