Headrests?; Seats?

I test drove a Trailhawk the other day and have a few questions come to mind.
Are the headrest angles adjustable? Are the front and/or rear headrests removable?
Are the manual front seats adjustable for height? My wife sits like a queen high on the passenger seats in our van and 98 cherokee and in the Trailhawk complained about it being like "sitting in a bathtub".

I saw a review of a handle passenger side which when used adjusted the ride height. Ask the dealer for a demonstration.

Headrests aren't adjustable for angle or height. Rear headrests fold down. I'm not sure if the manual passenger seat is adjustable for height-- I'll check and let you know, if no one has already answered.

Headrest angle is not adjustable
Headrest height most certainly IS adjustable, both for the front and rear
The passenger seat is height adjustable

Headrest angle is one thing I noticed when test driving. I like the way Ford does them with the Escape. You can pull them forward and they click into different settings. You can then pull them all the way forward and they will flip back to the fully back (rearmost) angle setting.

required to be angled forward towards your head. lots of complaints when they were phasing them in around 2007. even ones that adjust are close to your head but on the plus side they actually work.

Yeah there is a maximum distance I believe as far as location to your head.

The headrests are also "active" in that they move and adjust angles in the event of a collision. Maybe this feature is why they're not manually adjustable?
