Best Truck Seat Covers for 2023
Originally published on Jun 12, 2019 | Updated on Sep 14, 2023
Are you looking to install a set of stylish, protective seat covers on your ride but aren’t sure which brand or model is right for you? Then you’ve come to the right place! In this guide, we’re covering everything there is to know about truck seat covers, including materials, fitment, and a review of the top 10 seat covers we carry on RealTruck!
Why Install Seat Covers?
Individuals install seat covers for various reasons, though the first and most commonly cited is protection. Your vehicle’s factory upholstery is highly prone to abrasions, punctures, and staining, severely detracting from its aesthetics and resale value. Seat covers form a barrier between the OEM upholstery and abrasives, liquids, dirty clothing, and other contaminants, taking the brunt of any damages that’d otherwise affect the seats.
Another reason for installing seat covers is the ease of cleaning. Unlike your vehicle’s upholstery, which requires chemical cleaners, extractors, and elbow grease for a thorough cleaning, most seat covers are fully machine washable! Rather than sweating and scrubbing for hours, simply toss your seat covers in your home washing machine and reinstall them once dry for a rejuvenated appearance!
Seat covers can also improve your vehicle’s aesthetics, whether you’re covering worn, stained upholstery or sprucing up a bland interior with brightly-colored, patterned seat covers!
Seat Cover Variances
No two seat covers are created equal; there are several variances between seat cover brands and models, ranging from the choice of materials and care instructions to fitments. Let’s dig deeper into some of these key differences.
Fitments: Custom-Fit Vs. Universal
Custom-fit seat covers offer a snug, application-specific fitment that’s engineered for your vehicle specifically. These seat covers consider all of your seat’s features, including seat type, integrated or adjustable headrests, in-seat airbags, adjustability, and more, ensuring a flawless fit and finish that, once installed, resembles your vehicle’s OEM seats!
On the other hand, universal seat covers feature an oversized, often elastic fitment designed to fit a wide array of vehicles. While typically less expensive than custom-fit seat covers, universal seat covers don’t produce the same factory-style fit and finish.
Seat covers come in several materials, each with unique characteristics. Some of the most common include:
Canvas: A thick, durable fabric offering a soft-touch feel and exceptional wear resistance.
Leatherette: A durable, synthetic leather offering a premium look and feel without the premium price tag of genuine leather.
Neoprene: A water-resistant synthetic fabric offering exceptional durability; the same material wetsuits are made from!
Neosupreme: A cost-effective neoprene alternative, this fabric offers a similar look, feel, and weather resistance without the premium price tag.
Poly Cotton: A durable, canvas-like blend of cotton and polyester. This fabric is abrasion, stain, and weather resistant; it’s also machine washable for easy maintenance!
Saddle Blanket: Who doesn’t love a classic saddle blanket seat cover? These covers are constructed from a durable, woven fabric reminiscent of the saddle blankets worn on horses’ backs to guard against chafing.
Seat covers also come in a wide range of aesthetics, ranging from simple, factory-style neutral colors like solid gray, tan, and black, to wild patterns like camouflage! Regardless of your preference, we carry several seat covers to complement your ride.
