I had a Tacoma prior to my 14 Tundra. The seats in it are the reason it is gone. It was so bad that after 20 minutes I had to do the gangster lean. Pam ended up driving it and i was back in the Tahoe lol
I went from a Yukon Denali XL to a Tundra...the seats in the GMC are way more comfy...the Tundra seat is a bit stiffer...even though its a leather covered bucket, the Tundra feels more like a bench BUT, I have gotten used to it and don't notice it. I have had to adjust the lean of the seat back to keep my neck from aching...has more to do with an old sports injury than anything else...
That's interesting. I have back injury from younger days too. I find a lot of seats uncomfortable, so often I alternate standing and seating, esp at work. But the seat in my Tundra is so comfortable for me, even on a long distance travel.
I think that the bigger you are, the more you appreciate these seats. I am 6'3", 275 and the only more comfortable ride I've had was my 2005 expedition. I originally wanted a Tacoma, had wanted one for years. But when my wife saw me test driving it she pointed out that I would be much more comfortable in a full size truck.
These seats are very wide and I can see a smaller person potentially having trouble finding the right comfort zone in them.
My seats are comfortable if I have the internal bladders expanded a decent amount.
The seats are wide which I don't really touch the outer edges.
I'm 5'6" and 140.
So I don't really fill out the seat much. Haha.
Another reason I bought the Pro model. I drove all of them available in 2015. The Platinum had a Lexus like feel in the seat, I had a Lexus ES and the Platinum sure felt close. All the rest felt stiff as a board. The Pro's seat covers were a great compromise. I didn't want leather unless it was heated and cooled and the only way to get that is after market or Platinum. The 4WD Pro rode better than all of the 4WD's. After near 20,000 miles I think I made the right decision for ME. FWIW I came out of a 2014 LTZ Silverado that had so so seats. The last really comfortable truck seat I had was in my 2008 Avalanche.
We also have a 2010 4-Runner Limited and those seats are not large enough for me on long trips. The same goes for the Taco and I really like the Tacoma.
I've got a seriously F-ed up back. My SR5's seats are the only car seats I've found that don't hurt. In fact, my truck is the only vehicle I have found that I can drive more than about an hour before needing to stop and get out. These seats must be very polarizing because this isn't the first thread where somebody said they hate them, while others, like me, absolutely love the seats.
to each his own. im 6'2" 245# and had a 2 level spinal fusion with hardware in 2011. I find the 2014 tundra seats more comfy than any chair in my house. Maybe it the leather seats I don't know. but the adjustable lumbar support if great/
I'm 6'4" 185. Bought my '15 SR5 Crewmax in early July and STILL trying to get comfortable. Have had Fords, Chevys, Caddillacs, etc and this is the only one I've ever had a problem getting comfortable in. Really bothers my lower back, even in short rides or if I adjust the seat up to take away from back pain it hurts my legs. Still looking for that sweet spot. Getting Katzkin leather put on tomorrow. Will update if that solves the problem. But please - let me know if anyone has any suggestions.
