Comfort isn't just determined by height, but by each person's proportions and the geometry of the vehicle, so short or tall, male or female, you just need to sit in and drive any vehicle. The Colorado is the first vehicle we've had in 20 years with more than enough leg room for my husband. The last vehicles we had that he didn't wish for a tad bit more legroom were late '80s model - even my '87 Chevy Sprint (anyone remember those?) had enough, yet was good for my short legs.
I will be making a cushion for the driver's seat in the Colorado; so far the passenger seat seems to work for both of us. However, at least on our '15 Colorado, the driver's seat only adjusts up and down, forward and back. The seat itself is not adjustable, and slopes to the rear. This has the effect of making the front border (bolster) of the seat hit both of us uncomfortably. If i have the seat at the height I prefer, my heel does not rest comfortably on the floor. The well of the bucket is too deep at the back, too. Not bad for a few blocks, but it will not do for long distances.
This isn't the first vehicle that I've had to use a cushion of one type or another, there is no way to make seats for all drivers, except (maybe) for ones with many more adjustments.
