2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Split Heated Seats

October 18, 2013

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

Our long-term 2014 Chevy Silverado includes the optional heated seats, but like in many other GM vehicles, they go above-and-beyond the norm for this common feature. Note there are two buttons. The one on the right activates three levels of standard heated seats, where both the back and butt are heated. The button on the left activates three levels of back only.

I love this feature. On a long drive or when en route to a morning golf game (as I was in the Silverado recently), a little heat on my back is nice for loosening up my muscles. However, the downside is usually a roasting, swampy backside. The Silverado makes sure that doesn't happen. The only thing better is the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which provides heat on your back while massaging it and ventilating the seat bottom.

    I think that is a great feature. Kudos to Chevrolet.

    Ok, that is a solidly awesome feature. I often use heated seats for my back, but don't actually want or need it for the heat, so this feature would be perfect for that. Talk about a feature you didn't know you needed/wanted until you knew about it!
