Also noticed, no 12v cigarette style plug anywhere on the vehicle...very disappointed no easy way to convert those items to usb.
That's an issue for sure. Really surprised by that.

Anyone know if the below payload capacities are with 2WD or 4WD? If its 2WD, how much less do we expect it to be with 4WD?

1684 / 764 – WT & LT

1587 / 720 – Trail Boss & Z71

1151 / 522 – ZR2

Having watched Andre’s video, I am even happier I didn’t wait to buy a 23. The only thing I caught in his review that I wish my truck had is the relocated knob for the transfer case.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s a nice truck. Just don’t feel like I’m missing out.

Adaptive Cruise Control and a sunroof are enough to make me upgrade. Although I have no experience with GM's adaptive cruise control -- Can it come to a complete stop and start up again like Subaru's?

yes but once stopped you have to hit RESUME

and it can only brake so much...if the vehicle ahead stops too abruptly you still need to hit the brakes

I'm not really a big fan of all the nannies in my Yukon Denali, I rarely use them

So is "Nannies" the technical term? :ROFLMAO:

What is funny is that the more I look at the seats, the more I realize it's pretty much the same seat as the current truck with a different pattern... The passenger seat still has the manual back lever on the ZR2 lol.

I think they changed the headrest and some patterns hoping no one would notice LOL

I would not be surprised if seats are interchangeable with 2nd gens

The only other thing I can think is the xt5 seats. They're really really similar to these new ones. (And the current colorado as well) I have no issues with the current Gen seats by the way. They're not GMT800 seats (my favorite) but they're still extremely comfortable for me. Just for the show factor of a modern interior the more I look at it the less I'm really seeing that has really changed vs being updated is all...

Nope, they are different. I can see it plain as day. Maybe not hugely different, but different in the right way. I do not like the seats in my 2015. Too much bolstering on the seat bottom....especially on the drivers seat, left side. It digs into my thigh....every friggin time I drive the truck. I have a hard time getting comfortable in these seats. It's the one thing I've never liked about my truck. The seats were updated for the 2019 model. They changed them to 6 way seats (so the seat bottom could be adjusted...although the seat recline was still manual...huge mistake in my opinion, but whatever lol) and they cut down on the amount of bolstering on the drivers seat. It's an improvement over my truck, and I could probably be happy with that.

The 2023 model changes the bolstering again, by making it so that the seat remains flat out o the ends, with only the bolstering being on the sides of the seat instead of wrapping around to the front. You can see what I mean below:

Thanks, hopefully with SuperCruise (not that the Colorado is getting it) it works differently. I was amazed in my Subaru that it would do emergency stopping and resume on its own when the vehicle in front moved.

The cushions are different but how did you verify the mounting hardware/underpinnings/rails aren't the same? Remember under the skin these cabs are still the same as 2nd gen.

While somewhat different it's still mostly the same. I haven't sat in a pre 19 but the driver seat bolster, atleast in mine, is more like what the newer gen is vs the one you linked. I don't think the passenger seat changed though.

Note the seat bolstering is quite flat across on the driverside vs the drinker side being rounder. I noticed this on my test drive and appears to be the case with the 19+ seat change. The bottom is flatter.
