KR Leather Confitioner on 11+ KR's?

Anyone use the KR leather conditioner on the 11+ models of the king ranch, that really dont have KR leather in them, just the logo? I am under the impression that that new KR's dont have KR leather in them because people couldn't take care of them properly so they went to the new "KR" leather that holds up better. The logo on the shoulder blade area feels plastic IMO, not leather.

I want to clean the leather, whatever it is, with Lexol and then hit it with the KR leather conditioner but if it's not real KR leather then I could use any conditioner so I am trying to see what you guys use on your new KR interiors.

I have a 13 KR.

I use Meguires Leather Conditioner (Black Bottle w/ gold seats). Best Leather Cleaner/Conditioner. Doesn't leave an OILY coating like other cheap companies. Use it in all my cars.

I believe after 2010 they started using just regular leather dyed the KR color

This does mean that it should require much less maintenance to keep it looking nice

one of the lexols i have used in the past smells funny aka not pleasant. I used the cleaner last night and it doesnt stink, but the other one did so i guess its the conditioner.

people didnt use actual saddle soap and saddle oil on the seats before and all the king rach seats disintegrated... dealers didnt know how to treat them and subsequently most customers didnt... so yes its normal leather now... I do 5000 leather installs a month if not more and on everything we do we use VLR on everything its either meguiers or mothers, its a red bottle... best stuff out there for leather vinyl and rubber
