Review & Install Video
Hey, guys. Joe from AmericanTrucks. And today, we're going to be working with the Covercraft SeatSaver front seat covers in charcoal fitting all '14 to '18 Silverado and Sierra 1500s with a bench seat. Now, these are going to be perfect for any truck owner out there that's either looking to freshen up their interior a little bit or preserve the quality of their brand new interior with a high-quality set of seat covers. These are made out of a heavy-duty polycotton, which, in my honest opinion, will feel like this will last a really long time. It's thick material, it's double stitch throughout. It's even got some folded edges to prevent any fraying. One of the biggest things for me in a seat cover is that it can protect and preserve the seat underneath. These are water and UV resistant. So on top of protecting that seat, if these do take a hit, you can easily take them right off. They're also machine-washable. Throw them in the washing machine, clean them up, put them right back in your truck, and you'll be good to go. On the black interior of our '16 Silverado here, I think these are a perfect match and pretty much look right at home in the interior. They even match some of the gray accents on the dashboard. But if your interior is a different color, Covercraft also offers these in tan to better match your truck. Now one thing I did want to touch on here is these seat covers are a little bit wrinkly out of the box. I don't really think that's a negative. I think a warm day in the sun will definitely iron out those wrinkles, and these will fit just perfectly to the bench seats in the Silverado or Sierra. Now, this set is specific for the 40-20-40 bench seat, which means you get this perfect fit coverage for your center console. And if I even fold this down, you have some coverage on the armrest too to make sure that doesn't wear out as well. Pricing for this set, and it is just the front set, is going to come in right around 200 bucks. Build quality here and materials are bar none, definitely well worth the money. Also included in that price is going to be a one-year limited warranty from Covercraft. If you are looking to complete the look, the back seat covers are available. That set is also going to come in right around that $200 mark.Install is going to be extremely easy. Again, these just slip on and off, making them really easy to machine-wash. They get an easy one-out-of-three wrenches on our difficulty here. Should take you no longer than 30 minutes to do the front set, and there are no tools required. So without any further ado, let me show you how to get these on your truck. So the first thing we're going to do to get our seat covers installed is removed the headrest here. And in order to do that, we're just going to push the whole thing up, and then press in both of these buttons here to release it, and then pull it straight out. So this is the regular headrest button, and this one on the other side is the release.Then we're going to fold the backrest forward as far as we can go and slide on the back cover of our driver side seat. Now, the reason we know that, if you reach up into the cover here, there's going to be an opening on the side. You want that to be toward the outside of the vehicle. That's going to be for your airbag. Then we could fold that back. And as far as the bottom goes here, if I hold this up, you can see there's this flap right here. This is going to push in between the cushions, come up underneath the bottom cushion and meet up with this latch on the front.Now we're going to reach up behind the seat and pull through that strap, and feed it back into the driver footwell. So I have that here, back around front. We're just going to feed this through the buckle on the leading edge of the bottom cushion. So I have that strap here. We're just going to feed that into the buckle on that leading edge of the bottom cushion, pull that tight underneath the cushion, then we're going to get our elastic sorted up top and do the headrest.And to do our headrest, we're just going to take this cover here, feed it around our headrest, and then meet up this hook and loop here to secure it. Then all we're going to do to get this re-installed is drop it into our back cushion. Now, we're going to do the same thing for the other side. Starting with the headrest removal here, we're going to pull it all the way up, press in the buttons on both sides. Take that out. Then we're going to feed the backrest over, and push that strap in between the cushions, and pull it underneath the bottom. And now that we have the elastic bottom portion sorted out, we're just going to do the headrest cover. And, finally, drop that back in place. So, for the center console portion, it's going to be pretty much the same thing. For the bottom, I found it easiest to pull this straight up like that and feed this over. You want to make sure these Velcro straps go through and underneath into the actual storage compartment. Once you have that done, I'm just gonna pull them tight and meet them up with the Velcro on the other side. For the backrest portion, what we're going to do is get the lid part on the back, and then feed this in between the two. I found it pretty easy to just push it in and work it along by rotating the console. With that fed through, we're just going to drop the console down into the bottom cover. And I'm just going to get that started for now. Then we're going to reach around back with these Velcro tabs here and meet them up behind. Now we can stretch this lid part over top and get that secured as well. And that is going to do it for my review and install of the Covercraft SeatSaver front seat covers in charcoal fitting all '14 to '18 Silverado and Sierra 1500s with a bench seat.
