Difference Between Truck Cab Sizes

Difference Between Truck Cab Sizes

If you are in the market for a new pickup truck, you will be faced with an incredible amount of choices to make. This involves choosing between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, determining engine size, and picking out a trim level.

 

However, the most important decision before you can tackle the other options is choosing a cab configuration. There are four cab types--crew cab, quad cab, extended cab, and regular cab--and they often influence the truck bed size as well. Your passenger and cargo hauling capabilities will be affected by the cab type chosen, so choose wisely.

 

Crew Cab

Crew Cab

 

A crew cab is the most popular cab variant, as it offers four full doors and provides a full back seat for passengers. This cab configuration offers rear-seat legroom that is significant, on par or even more than what a large sedan offers.

 

Often, the full back seat of a crew cab can be folded out of the way to increase in-cab storage, or it lifts to reveal a hidden storage cubby underneath. For drivers with children or even adult passengers to haul around regularly, the crew cab is the right choice.

 

Quad Cab

Quad Cab

 

A quad cab, sometimes referred to as a double cab by other manufacturers, offers a back seat and room for five passengers, but the rear doors are smaller than the front doors. The doors are still hinged in the front, opening like a normal four-door car, but the rear seat is smaller and does not offer as much legroom as a crew cab.

 

Extended Cab

Extended Cab

 

An extended cab features a back seat, albeit a very small one. There are four doors, but an extended cab comes with rear-hinged second-row doors. That means that the rear doors do not have a handle outside--the front door must be opened to unlatch and use the rear door.

 

Regular Cab

Regular Cab

 

A regular cab is what used to be the only cab configuration for pickup trucks. It is one row of seating with the seat backs resting against the cab's rear wall. There is no second row and basically no in-cab storage room. However, the benefit to a regular cab is that it can usually tow more than other cabs when similarly equipped.

 

Truck Bed Sizes

Truck Bed Sizes

 

Truck bed sizes often vary with the choice of cabs, such as only a short bed being available with a crew cab configuration. Drivers need to determine what matters most to them in a truck--cab size or bed size.
