Maybe im wrong, maybe i meant i have a console? the driver and passenger sports seats move forward independently, and the bit in the middle folds down to make a wide armrest with storage bins or up to make a spare seat.

That's the bench. The buckets have a console with floor shifter

I needed the center seat. This is the new family vehicle. With 3 kids in the back, the center seat was the deciding factor over other trucks I was looking at.

It's the nicest bench I've ever sat on!
I really like the buckets and console and would have gone for it but need the 6 seats quite often. Maybe the next Ram will have the console.

I wish I would've got the bench in this truck. I love the buckets but there's just some things where the bench is better

This was easy for me. How often do I want to have three in the front? Something like .001%d of the time.?? How often do I drive alone or with only a passenger? 99.9% of the time. There's a major difference in the comfort of having the console there, and to alter the comfort factor for such a small percentage of the time when I MIGHT have another passenger.....then he/she can sit in the back of the 4 door cab....even lie down and take a snooze if they want. No brainer here. Look at your lifestyle and drivng habits. Most folks dont' nee the three in the front configuration. Go for function not form.

Independent front seats with the folding center. I think aftermarket racing buckets would be slick.
