8th Generation - Seat Configuration 5 passenger vs 6?
So on the 8th Generation there are basically 3 front seat configurations. The traditional 40/20/40 with the fold down center arm rest/storage compartment and flip up access to the cup holders and steering column shifter; the 5 passenger 40/40 bucket seats with the center console and shifter on the floor; and then special -police interceptor package that seems to have a center console but the shifter is still on the steering column. As you move up in years to the newer models, it seems like at some point the great majority of the non-interceptor vehicles have gone to the center console and shifter on the floor... Is this true that at some point they pretty much quit the steering column shifter at all?
My preference is the steering column shifter and full 6 passenger design (I've driven both). Comfort is big a part of it.
So anyone know if the last years of the Gen 8 were all either the 5 seat center console or the Interceptor police package?
