The second row seatbacks fold and then the whole seat forward to allow entry the 3-person third row bench, or to increase cargo room.


Third row don’t get much leg room, These seats should be of as kids-only, as it is still difficult for to squeeze back there, and is only room for short And GM should have placed handles near the roofline for times when older need to wedge in and out of the rear And while the 60/40 third row bench seatbacks fold they must be removed to get a flat cargo area.
