The leather seats in my 1999 Nissan Pathfinder and the heated leather seats in my Tundra are comfortable.
The heated leather seats in our 2014 Avalon aren't as comfortable to me.
I think the height of SUVs and pickups makes the seat more comfortable, like you are sitting at the kitchen table.
The Avalon isn't tall enough to get the seat high enough. No more cars for me. Only pickups, SUVs, and vans.

The quality of car seats (or lack thereof) is a sore point with my wife. She drives Volvos because of their top-notch seats. But, obviously, Volvos are not tow vehicles.

We settled on a GMC Yukon Denali. The seats are above average, have heating and cooling, and the part I really like- The heat setting can be both back and seat, or just the back.

Regardless, we still try to limit our travel days to 5-6 hours on the road- or less.

A Corvette... is not for SBI individuals. Sensitive Buttock Issue. VERY TRUE!
Ours is an '82 and it did not come with the automatic back shove option. We have the manual back (or lower) shove option and it only works when I hurriedly ask for it before the driver gets out before me. Now the only problem is trying to sell it so maybe he will finally buy me an Airstream. I am sure I won't need any shoves to use an Airstream. A funny post, enjoyed it thoroughly.

Best seats I've had in a TV were in a 1995 ford e150 conversion van. The whole interior was mauve and my young family couldn't help but call me chester with a smile on their faces. On the plus side the kids never wanted me to drop them off at friends or school, if I had to they always made me stop around the corner. The old van only had a 302 and didn't have the best rearend gear for pulling, but man was it comfortable. The seats were cloth with a deep foam that formed around you to offer the ultimate in comfort and support. It truly was like driving the lazy boy down the interstate.

Have not owned a Ford in decades, but this feature might change that.
(comfort trumps brand loyalty)

My Silverado's leather covered/air conditioned/heated/electric adjustable seats are great for a long day of driving. But, the back of my upper legs and butt cheeks get sore after setting 4-5 hours. It is getting worse as I've aged, loosing padding back there . I think the Active Motion seat feature might remedy this pain.
Sure! The Ford seats are also leather/heated/cooled/adjustable like your Silverado's and I find them comfortable just in general. The Active Motion feature is the topper and is one of the reasons I stepped up to the higher trim level as, for some reason, the option isn't available on Lariat models or below, at least it wasn't in 2017. I guess Ford is trying to incentivize people to spend on a more expensive truck. It worked in my case.

Heated leather seats in 2008 Tundra and 2011 Rav are very comfy for my FBS( flat butt syndrome) . DH’s cloth seats in 2014 Tacoma? ..... misersble.
It ain’t just brand or vehicle type, it’s the ergonomics of seat + your body

I find some seats too narrow for my wide load...
I hate butt cheeks hanging off of both sides of the seat...
I like the higher trim levels just for heated seats and climate control.
I've had them too many years to go back.
Now wishing for a heated steering wheel...

The most comfortable seats we had were in a Mercedes G500. Excellent engine as well.

When all else fails..... customize your own and have the upholsterer add some foam here and perhaps even take some from there...

Another option that if you had told me it about 15 years ago, I would have laughed. But I have it and, even here in California, it's really appreciated on a cold morning.

Active Motion (silly marketing name) is basically a massaging seat. It doesn't vibrate, but rather it has multiple air chambers that produce a cyclic rolling wave motion that runs from the back of your thigh to your tailbone, and up and down the lumbar area of your back. You can adjust the strength of the lumbar "wave' via the Synch screen. I've found that it really helps relieve SBI and the tension that builds in my lower back. "Massaging" seats in a pickup sound kind of ridiculous, but they work! Love 'em.


Definitely one of if not the best feature on the F250. Also not mentioned in any of the marketing materials as far as I recall. It was a”secret” the sales person made sure to point out during delivery.

Definitely helps on long trips.

I have found that not sitting on my wallet for hours at a time makes things a lot more comfortable.
