5th gen and heated leather seats

Will they offer heated leather seats? Living in Canada, its a very nice option to have. I currently have heated leather in my RSX and can't live without it now. Considering the Mustang has heated leather seats, it would make sense for the Camaro to have it as well. Did the 4th gens have heated leather seats?

Most newer cars with leather seats have seat heating as well, so I imagine getting a leather interior will also get you heated seats on the new Camaro.

Nobody can say for sure...but the Mustang has them, so the Camaro should get the next model up: Ass Warmers.

Yeah, that was going to be my question. I've driven through Arizona in a car with leather seats. Those seats get HOT!

When it's cold out, all you have to do is put on a jacket and gloves and you're good to go, but in the heat you're S.O.L.

65 for the high??? Is that all? I live where it can be 85 on Christmas day. Yes I said can be, cause it can be 30 but most likely 50 to 60. I myself dont care about heated or cooled seats.
I would like to have the remote start to get the air a chance to work in the summer or heat in the winter.

pencil just so you know it really doesn't matter leather, cloth, or anything in the middle. ALL SEATS GET HOTT IN ARIZONA. leather does have to be the worst tho. but, i have to look on the brights side, i work midnights, so i miss alot of the heat. don't get me wrong,it is still over 100+ when i leave for work, and 90+ when i leave work @ 7:00am in the middle of july. so "ass coolers" would be great, but atleast i miss the direct sun 110+

Definitely wish seat coolers were as common as seat warmers.

that might ruin the leather Dragon, but if they were cloth seats that might be an option

I've never understood why so much effort has been put into heated seats when little has been done for cooled seats. I can heat up a seat with my own ass, just give me a little bit of time. But I have yet to figure out a practical way to cool them down without getting out of the seat.

Yes you can put on jacket and gloves when it's too cold, but you can also put on shorts when it's too hot!

Good question, we don't have that problem, and since I'm just on the other side of the lake from you, my guess is neither do you!

Haven't tried that yet. I'll have to remember that 8 months from now when it gets warm again.

I guess you're implying that you will be driving this car throughout the winter.

I think I'll opt-out of seat warmers as they won't be necessary if I'm only driving the car till early December. I'll be taking mine off the road before first snowfall to avoid the road salt.

Uhh.. you get branded from the penny that was on the seat.. or you burn your hand on the belt buckle..(oh gods how i hate those burns)... AND YES it actually happens. Sometimes living in AZ is killer..

Living here is one reason I will never own leather in a car.. and I buy light colored cars (my cammy will be white).

All kidding aside, it actually gets hot here too. I've burned my legs on black vinyl before. I was just joking with the shorts comment.

I'd take the seat heater and cooler option... especially the cooler option... because Austin, much like Houston, is prone to having 85* Christmas and New Year's Days

if i was planning on driving the car year round i'd take both options. Believe it or not Montreal (yes that's in Canada) gets up into the 110s fahrenheit (at least with humidity) in the summer and down to minus 40 fah. in the winter. Outside of Russia we probably have one of the largest yearly temperature ranges in the world.
