2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Seat Heaters
June 20, 2014
I have to say that one of my favorite features on our 2014 Chevrolet Silverado is its seat heaters. Am I nuts? Maybe. But here's why I like them...
Primarily, I like these heaters because I can direct heat to my back exclusively. When I have sore muscles, there is usually nothing worse than being stuck in the saddle for a long period of time. The average seat heater offers relief, sure. But typically it comes at the expense of my backside, which gets seared as an innocent bystander. That is not the case in this Chevy, and I appreciate it.
Separation of back and bum heaters is not unique to the Silverado. Other GM products offer the feature, and they are just as good. Yet as much as I like them, seat toasters aren't a stand-alone victory. Add enough of these thoughtful touches throughout the car, though, and you get a winner. The more time I spend in this truck, the more I like it.
