Check Out the Latest Features Offered in the Best Semi-Truck Seats

Comfortable truck seats that include a wide array of options, as well as safety features, are essential to keeping truck drivers alert to their surroundings when driving 8+ hours a day. From commercial truck seat cushions with added padding to ultra-high seat backs for added lumbar support, having a well-designed truck seat helps keep truck drivers focused and alert when driving.


Safety is equally important. When truck drivers have to constantly move around because of a sore back or bottom or tight muscles, it takes their focus off the road. When truck drivers are uncomfortable while driving, they cannot give their full attention to the road.

What’s New in Truck Seats?

1. Wider Seats: Bostrom and other truck seat manufacturers have rolled out wider seats to provide more comfort. Bostrom offers different options with their Wide Ride seats including Core and Wide Ride + Serta®.


2. Cooled Semi Truck Seats: One feature found in upscale and high-end vehicles has made its way to truck seats: cooled semi-truck seats. This feature is often found on seats that also offer heating. No longer do truck drivers have to feel hot, sticky, and sweaty on hot summer days when they upgrade to a truck seat with cooling.


3. Truck Seat Memory Settings: Many new truck seats are starting to offer memory settings. The seat will automatically move to an exiting position when the truck is parked; when climbing into the seat, it automatically returns to the preset driving settings.

4. Memory Foam: Memory foam is not just for truck mattresses anymore. Many seat manufacturers are switching out existing materials and adding memory foam to seat cushions and backs for better support and improved comfort.


There are also seats being developed that connect to advanced driver safety features like forward collision alert. These advanced seats would use tactile alerts built into the seat to potentially alert truck drivers to problems before they see them.

Guide to Help Choose the Best Semi-Truck Seats

Let’s face it. Sitting for 8+ hours a day driving a truck can leave your back and bottom feeling sore and uncomfortable if you don’t have the best semi-truck seats. To help you upgrade your existing seat and find the perfect one to keep you comfortable, check out this guide to truck seats.


Types of Truck Seats

There are three general types of truck seats you can choose from:


1. Low-Profile Truck Seats: Low Profile truck seats utilize smaller sized air suspensions which sit lower and take up less space, allowing for use in cabs with limited room such as medium duty trucks or cab over trucks. Check with Suburban, as direct-bolt-in brackets and/or adapters may be available for your specific truck make and model.

2. Standard Profile Truck Seats: This type of truck seat is the most common style air suspension seat and is found in most conventional style truck cabs. Many of these seats are outfitted to fit most make and model’s seat bolt patterns, with some exceptions. Check with your sales rep to ensure perfect fitment!


3. Medium-Duty Truck Seats: Medium-Duty Truck Seats are designed specifically for certain popular truck applications, smaller than the typical Class 8 Trucks. These include Heavy-Duty Pickup Trucks, Mid-Sized Freightliner cabs and Mid-Sized International cabs. Like other air suspension seats, these are available with many options and creature comforts like adjustable lumbar, isolators, heat and more.
