1. Extendable Jump Seats: GMC

With GMC (NYSE:GM) releasing its new Canyon midsize pickup, it has developed a clever way to account for more space in the back seats of the cabin. For parents, one problem with small and midsize pickups are the small backseats, which don’t offer much room in which to place a car seat. According to Autoblog, car seat manufacturers require 80 percent of the seat’s bottom to fit on the cushion, which most pickups can’t accommodate. GMC came up with a neat fix wherein the headrests can be removed and slotted into the bottom of the seat, effectively creating a larger cushion area for car seats to rest upon. The nifty fix leads to a safer ride for children, and peace of mind for parents who drive small and midsize trucks.
