2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Just Hold Me

July 26, 2012

I don't know about you, but the last thing I want when it's scorching hot outside is the experience of something -- anything -- touching me. That's why I tend to prefer looser clothes in warm weather, and that's why I thought I'd hate the Jeep's seats. They're pretty aggressively bolstered, which means they really get in there and give your ribs a hug when you slide into position.

It sounds like the kind of thing that would drive me crazy during the dog days of summer, but that's not the case -- I really like the seats. I like the experience of being held firmly in place, and the bolsters are a perfect fit for my frame; I wonder, though, if they might not be too constrictive for those with wider builds. The seat's soft, suede inserts also work in concert with the bolsters to further enhance grip.
