2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Awesome Seats
March 23, 2015
There's been a lot of talk around the office about seat comfort lately. And it's undoubtedly a highly subjective matter. But these seats are the best I've ever experienced in a truck, hands down.
There is a combination of qualities that make them work for my skinny frame. First, the seat bottom cushioning is firm, but not too firm. That's a hard one to quantify, but I'll say it like this: I never find myself shifting around to reposition my weight. That, for me, is what makes it "just right."
Second, there are bolsters. Both the seat bottom and the seat back have modest bolsters which provide mild lateral support — not a big deal in a truck — and make me feel like I'm sitting "in" the seat rather than "on" the seat. They're fairly narrow, too, and part of my weight rests on the seat bottom bolsters all the time. Larger occupants might not like the feeling.
Finally, the texture of the fabric is a bonus. It helps hold me in place and I simply like the way it feels.
