What's with the seats???

Well for me, the center flow through floor console is a great upgrade. The rest of the seat combos are kinda goofy.

I don't really like the marbelized two-tone. If they wanted to do two-tone, why not make it a solid color?

Also, on the six seater, the fold down console looks way out of place. It's too "fat" and the head rest on top looks terrible. I like the looks of the OBS center fold down unit much better.

End rant. haha

Does anyone agree? I think that Ford did great and hit the entire truck out of the ball park but should have fired the seat designers and the sticker designers (the 4x4 and FX4 stickers on the bed.)

Anyway, if I had the cash, I'd buy one tomorrow!!! A couple of buddies at work just bought one last month (one Adobe CCSB Lariat and a Red CCSB Lariat)...They're really rubbing it in on me to trade up, man I'd like to!

I have the Adobe seats. I like the Carmelized/Camo seat pattern. Won't show wear as much, I believe. The Fx4 stickers...yeah They are kinda weird. If thats all I have to complain about, well minus the head room,...can't wear a cowboy hat comfortably. I feel it is a homerun.

I am 6'1" and it is damn near impossible to reach anything in the backseat from the front but I love the seats for comfort and looks. A big reason (there were several) that I came from GM products to Ford was for these seats. The wife likes to, ahh, err, "rest" her head in my lap on long trips and this seat is the cat's meow for that!! Much better than those big old captain's chair type seats we had in the past. We both like the marbeled leather too - doesn't show dust at all.

Well guys as near as I can tell but have not confirmed yet you won't have to worry about it for long. I think they're going back to solid color for Job 2
