Test drove an 2018 FXT Touring with the saddle brown leather seating. And the seats were rather slippery. I had a 14/15 FXT Touring and don't remember the leather seating surface being so slippery. I'm wondering if this particular case is because it's used and the dealer detailed it. And whatever they used on the leather has made the seats slippery? Perhaps this would go away over time of ownership?

Time to upgrade to the turbo version.

There's got to be some product that can be used to lessen slipperyness. I did a search and found this...
How to Fix Slippery Leather Furniture
  • Mix a solution of three parts rubbing alcohol to one part water.
  • Rub the solution gently over the surface of the leather, using a wet, lint-free cloth. ...
  • Allow the leather to dry completely for two to four hours.
  • Treat and soften the leather with a top-quality conditioner. ...
  • Test the furniture.

It breaks in some. Avoid leather conditioners as those make it more slippery
