2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Seat Heaters = More Back Therapy
December 29, 2014
Our long-term 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 left our fleet a while ago, but that doesn't mean all of its fancy features have gone with it. Now that we've got its little brother, a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado in our fleet, we get these nifty seat heaters back too.
Basically, these are dual-location seat heaters. You can turn the heat on just for your back, or you can warm up your back and butt at the same time. This feature is on a few other GM products and it's available on some top-end luxury cars as well, but otherwise it's pretty rare. And as Erin Riches pointed out in our long-term Silverado, it's a great tool for treating back pain. So when I got overzealous with some furniture rearrangement earlier this week and tweaked my back, I was happy to see the Colorado was available.
By comparison, the Colorado has narrower and more rigid seats, but they're still totally livable for the daily commute and this is a feature I'd make sure to select if the Colorado was on my shopping list.
