Honestly, my old 1999 Honda CR-V had more comfortable seats, and it was only 3 way adjustable. I wouldn't go as far as saying I hate these seats, but I wouldn't take them on a road trip either.

Are you guys having issues with the leather seats in the higher model trucks as well? I have a WT model truck and was thinking about swapping them for the leather ones... Unless all of the seats just suck...?

Mine seem to be getting a lot better. Either they are breaking in or I'm getting used to them.

I have absolutely no complaints about the seats in my 2016 All Terrain, I was able to get them positioned front and rear where I wanted them using the power lumbar to get things just right for me. I understand the leg going numb or sore, I had that with my Ranger that had power nothing, you got what you got with it, with this truck I expected firm cushions, it is a truck, but it is not uncomfortable by no means to me, I am 5'10" tall weigh about 185lbs. My seat doesn't feel like I am leaning to the left at all and I do agree the seat belt buckling is a little tight when buckling up but it's no big deal. Even my wife was surprised at how comfortable it is to ride in after we got her seat adjusted for her liking. As for trading in a truck because of the seats, that's just a little crazy in my opinion, cheaper to have the seats redone completely or custom seats from any number of manufacturers done up for yourself.

My biggest gripe is the bolsters aren't heated, so I get a strip of warm down the crack of my butt and cold cheeks on the sides. At -10 this is really noticeable.


Other than that I love the seats that came in the Z71

Of course I can't compare them to the LTZ Silverado for that isn't a fair comparison.
But the seats in our '09 Trailblazer are better than my Colorados.
So are the seats in my wifes Equinox.
I find it disheartening that in the Colorado we get this chintzty tilt system where the tilt and height of the lower cushion are dependent upon each other since there is apparently only one pivot point on the seat mount.
And the beck, instead of being power with unlimited positioning, has got a ratchet lever with very coarse teeth.
I am thinking of getting some old Trailblazer seats, putting new leather on them, and have the seating the way it should be as described in Chevy's Brochure "top of the line Z-71 trim".

Yeah, I was surprised that the power seats are only 4-way instead of 6-way like on the 2010 Colorado LT I still have.
We also have a 2015 Equinox and I agree those seats are more adjustable and comfortable.

After almost 2 years I still can't sit comfortably in my Z71 even after cutting the seat cushion. Changing that truck will not come soon enough. I hope to get out of my lease

either the seats were produced on different lines, from several suppliers, different foam, or something. Mine suck, hard as a rock, they don't adjust in a way I can get comfortable. Yes it seems crazy to trade over seats, but I have one shop in town that does upholstery work and they do it for used car lots to get by 90 day warranty. So complete seat do over is not an option for me. A total swap yes, but no one has found any that work. Sad in my opinion so many think they are horrible and GM has done NOTHING about it. I get asked about my truck almost daily and tell everyone of them, Love the truck but the seats SUCK. Worse than anything I have ever owned.

I have an LT2 Colorado with 4 way power and heated leather etc. it is the best they offer in the Chevy version.
That said I agree with many others, for a truck with a 40+ sticker, these seats do kind of suck.
It is defiantly not my favorite road trip vehicle.


There is not near enough foam padding in them for my liking, and the lack of a tilt feature to them (6 Way ) makes me crazy.


I was in hopes that the new 17 Denali would have a better 6 way power mechanism that I could buy and replace this 4 way version with it, but looks like you really don't get much for that Denali price bump, I have not seen anywhere listed that it has a better seat other then they have a cooled feature which I have seen in the past vehicles where it makes a the seat even firmer with less padding in order to let the air pass through it.


I am going to look into having my upholstery shop add some more foam padding to the seat and possibly attempt to shim up the back of it where it bolts to the floor to try and get the thing tilted into a better position for me.


I have got to where I can tolerate it shot trips around town, I just think its time to start looking for ways to improve it's comfort level.


Anyone else have any idea's or finding any good solutions.

Hey Guys,

I have not chimed in on this in a while. I too have found the seats to be very uncomfortable for my height in particular (6'4 205). It seems it depends on the person...

I have purchased a few cushions trying to see if one would give me a bigger footprint. Most of the cushions or pads are just too small and too thick!.. I am very happy with it and have been using this one for a few months now and it has alleviated most of my issues with comfort and cramping. (20x20x14) and relatively thin... Be careful when clicking because there are two size options. I am going to buy a second one for the passenger seat now.

Just my two cents..maybe it will help some of you as well.
