How much do Katzkins cost?

On the official website, the company doesn’t specify an exact price since there are so many factors that can affect the price such as the car you drive, the additional options added, the installer you choose and the design you pick out; however, one FAQ did note you should be prepared to pay around $1,500 to $2,220, dependent upon the options you select The company specifically mentions that the installer will determine your final price, but before you commit, they will walk you through everything before you make a financial commitment.

When did our own research, however, we actually found out that the prices were a bit less than what the company quoted, so we would recommend you use that as a high-end estimate if anything.

One forum member on this WranglerForum.com forum thread, for instance, stated the price he paid was anywhere from $1,200 to $1,500 depending on the options, quality, logos and color schemes chosen.  Another member on this same thread stated they were quoted $1,175 at their local dealer.

Another thread started at WranglerForum.com said they paid anywhere from $1,000 for both the install and kit to as little as $300 just for the installation if you already had the kit in hand.

Without any professional installation, we did find multiple sellers on Amazon.com that sold the entire set for about $550.  Granted, this would not include professional installation if you were to need it.  eBay had similar prices as well at the time of this publishing.

What’s included in my purchase?

Aside from the leather interior transformation, the company stands by its product, offering a 3-year, 36,000-mile warranty, whichever comes first.  The warranty, however, will not cover any claims for cuts, scratches, abrasions, excessive wear or in the case of using a silicone-based product and/or chemicals.  Refer to the warranty information to see what may void your warranty.

They also offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee, offering a refund or even replacing your interior in the case you’re not happy with the product.

The company offers a variety of leather materials, including the Premium, Tuscany, Barracuda, Suedezkin, and Synthetics option, each with its own characteristics and looks.  To find out more about each option, you can do so via this FAQ.  The company does note that there are thousands of ways to customize your interior.

How do I upgrade my interior?

According to the company’s FAQ, in order to upgrade your interior, you will first want to use the company’s official design tool or you can call customer service to have them assist you with the process.  With the design tool, it will ask about your vehicle’s make, model, trim, year, and with this information, you can then choose a design based on the pictures provided.  When you find a design option you like, you will click the “choose this design” button, and from there, it will display a list of installers in your area you can contact for a quote.  On this form, you will input your name, email and phone number, and once submitted, you will simply wait for a response.

As for the timeframe, if you’re purchasing directly from the dealer, then it will be delivered with your new car in most cases; however, if you’re upgrading, most authorized dealers will need about two days to complete the transformation.

What is Katzkin?

Katzkin prides itself in being more than a car cover; instead, Katzkin will transform your vehicle with a customized, premium leather interior that by re-upholstering, recovering all seat surfaces, plus the center consoles and/or door panels.  Each product is engineered to fit specifically to your vehicle needs and has been developed and tested over time to meet or even exceed automotive requirements.   As the only after-market leather interior product that’s been OEM teste,d they have been trusted by the likes of CarMax, Hertz, AutoNation and multiple car brands.

Is it real leather?

According to the company, they only use premium automotive leathers and synthetics that are designed to meet or exceed the quality of the leather option offered by the car manufacturer.  Since all mid-market cars use leather-trimmed seats, simply meaning only part of the car is covered with leather and the rest is a high-quality synthetic material, the answer, in the end, is no, but this doesn’t reflect the quality as the company more than likely will use a mix of leather and synthetic leather materials depending on your setup.
