Nope. As my sales guy told me, "It's all about weight." GM is looking at the total reduction in weight without playing favorites for various things that some people want, such as cup holders or a spare tire. If you want the extra stuff then you have to choose a different trim level.That does seem a little extreme.
Shoot, I didn't even know there were the rear seat cup holders when I bought my 2LT. I found it by accident several days later.
