Ordering 2014 Silverado Crew LTZ - Bench or Buckets? Opinions?

Hey guys I am finally pulling the trigger on a new Silverado LTZ 4x4 next week as the Max Tow Package with the 3.73 is now available for order. We are debating on the two seating options in the front of the truck. . In my current Suburban I have buckets and it's nice since I have more than enough seating in the truck. I will be trimming down to a Silverado so I thought have the 6th seat option when needed would be a nice feature. What is everyone's thoughts on the bench vs the buckets? Pro's and Con's from any recent owners?

 

Thanks Much and I can't wait for the truck!!

I have the front bench and love it. Plenty of room if you need space for 3 adults across, and a huge amount of storage space when used as a console/armrest. Personally, I like it better than the center console. You still have all the ports and plugs, too, just on the dash, not in the console.

The LTZ comes standard with the buckets / center console I thought? So you would be downgrading? You could probably go with the LT and upgrade a bunch of stuff for cheaper... I could be wrong of course but its worth looking into.

 

 

I do have to add.. I wish I went with the "LT2" option with the center console when i bought my '12. The extra storage / clean look of the cab with the full console out weighs the very few times I would actually sit 3 up front.

The 40/20/40 is standard on the LTZ. The bucket seats are a $325 option, unless included in another package. Then add another $650 for the heated/cooled feature of the buckets.

For me, I prefer the 40 20 40, because I have kids and like the option of the third seating in the front. Plus, you never know when the little lady might flip the seat up and slide on over! :drool:

The buckets are great too, the choice depends on the truck use.

Good luck with the purchase!

Ohh ok, gotcha. I just remember every '12 i looked at in the LTZ trim had every bell and whistle available.

I have the bench seat, and I like it, but if I was ordering I would get the buckets. That big ass center console looks nice!!! One nice thing about the bench seat is the lockable storage underneath, but I'm sure the center console has something similar.

That is true. Most SLT and LTZ trucks/suvs have every imaginable option already included and/or added on. It was a task finding a truck I wanted. Within a 2-hour drive, there was one Chevy and one GMC like I was looking for. Even so, the one I ended up with has a few extras on it that weren't "must-haves".

There's also USB's in the flip up console on the bench seat.
