I have had my 2016 SV crew cab for about a year. I have seen some older threads about the legroom and wanting to adjust the front seat. I love the truck, just see after driving this long that I wish I could adjust this a bit. Anyone found anything recently for this.

Thanks,

No, sorry man, I am one of the ones that was complaining some and looking at possible solutions. The only real solution there would be at this point is to modify the stock rails in such a way that you slide them back some. It would involve cutting and welding and a little fab I am certain but I just have not had time due to my travel/work schedule.

My wife has a Murano and I always felt like that vehicle was comfortable for me. Out of curiosity I did some measurements this weekend when that seat was pushed all the way back and actually the legroom from edge of seat to peddles was really not different. However, one thing I note that makes me a little more comfortable in that vehicle was being able to lower the seat more. I think there were some other posts related to seat height in the past also. Did anyone ever note if the power seats are able to go lower than the manual. The manual is what I have. Also, of note, this weekend I went by a dealer and sat in a Titan. Actually, the leg room felt pretty much the same. So, maybe the seat height is really more my issue than the actual legroom.
I think there was a past post about someone cutting down the legs some but in the back so that would lower the back part of the seat but not the front.

So here I am March 2021 and I see nobody has a real solution to the drivers seat sliding back further than the stock slide allows. I am only 6 ft but have a bad lower back and I've just purchased this 2016 SV crew cab and already I need the extra leg room. My left leg is able to fully straighten but not my right because of the pedals. I was told by the salesman ( Lincoln dealership) that I can get different seat rails etc to suit me. I think I just need about 3-4 more inches to slide the seat back and it would be great. Long trips are going to be terrible for me and no lumbar adjustment is another bad loss. Has anyone found a solution ?

I'm also curious if there is anything that can be done, I'm 6'4 and while the truck is semi-comfortable I'd really like to be able to put my chair back at least another notch or two.

Not sure about more rearward movement, but the power seats from a Pro4 ( which I just happen to own ), do have manual lumbar adjustment via a lever, and the squab height can be changed front-to-rear on a limited angle of travel. A seat upgrade may be just what you are wanting, I have a bad back, knees and a trick hip, courtesy of a rear impact at 70MPH in 2006, so I can feel your pain, literally.
