Bench seats are among the most popular seat design installed in vehicles.The bench seat is a simple design,and is composed of one continuous pad which spans the length of the vehicle's cabin. The bench seat's pad may be flat or have small indents trimmed in to it,which gives a specific seat, definition. Bench seats were the most common seat found in vehicle's until the 1960’s, where it was slowly replaced by bucket seats. The bench seat is still used in late model trucks,and the back seats of sedans,SUV's and vans. Late model vehicle's which have a bench seat factory installed, may incorporate a foldout console, which lies out in the middle seat,in order to provide comfort for the vehicle's passengers.
In order to compete with the popularity of bucket seats in the 1970's, the bench seat was implemented with seat belts and other small components. Manufacturers also began to move the location of the vehicle's shifter to the floor, or in the steering column,which allowed the passenger sitting in the middle of the bench seat,to be more comfortable.
Bench seats are a simple design, and carpeted material instead of leather is typically used in the manufacturing of bench seats. Bench seats were originally designed for durability,and reliability which is why they are still commonly found in trucks, and passenger vehicle's where function outweighs comfort.
