roof liner question

roof liner question

Postby EJsZ71EJsZ71 is online! [OP] » Dec 10 2011, 7:47pm

This maybe a dumb question, but can anyone please explain why my black truck with a black interior has a TAN roof liner? I'm assuming this is GM's way of keeping costs down, but how much more would a black roof liner have costed?

I think it makes the truck lighter (brighter) inside. I had several Dodges and they all had tan headliners too.

Mine has a tan liner as well, with gray seats. That is the only color I have ever seen in the newer trucks.
