I agree. The pleather covered center console is not comfortable at all. On my 2000 Expy with a plastic center lid, I had a upholstery shop put padding and cover it in leather. It made it ten times more comfortable and raised the elevation to an acceptable level. The only downside is I could not open the lid 100%, no big deal.
Actually I'm talking about the second and third row seats that have no inboard armrests of any sort for the outboard passengers. Suburbans & Excursions at least have a fold down armrest/cupholder in the cushion of the center section of the seat.
