2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Split Heated Seats
October 18, 2013
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.
