Pickup Cab Sizes: Standard, Extended, Double, and Crew
Finding the right size cab is certainly important to your everyday use of your pickup. For example, a truck used on the job site doesn’t need as much room inside as one fore weekend adventures with the family. So, which is right for you? The regular or standard cab is the traditional pickup setup with one row of seating that fits three comfortably. The extended cab has four hinged doors, meaning they open backward. While there is a backbench, it’s better used for cargo than multiple people. The Double and Crew Cab are pretty similar, both with four doors that open as you’d expect and two rows of seating. The Crew Cab has larger doors and more room in the back seat, making it more ideal for play, but plenty useful for work.
Which Bed Size is Best for Me?
The simplest answer when searching out bed size is what are you expecting to haul around? A standard short bed is the most common size pickup you see on the roads today. It runs about five feet in compact pickups while extending to 6.5 feet in full-size trucks. The long bed is more for work purposes, stretching about two feet further than the short bed. In these beds — which measure seven feet in the compact and eight feet in the full — you can fit supplies for the construction site or farm completely in the bed with the tailgate closed. There are even smaller bed sizes as an option, but these are the two most popular and used.
Well, Which Pickup Truck is Right for Me?
Now that you know about the cab and bed sizes, which pickup works best for your daily use? You’ll be looking at light-duty and heavy-duty — or super-duty — pickup trucks. The light-duty truck is what you see most often on the road with a 1500 to 3000 maximum payload and the capability to tow 12,000 more pounds. That’s perfect for your boat or camper, but also works for many work-related trailers. The heavy-duty pickup trucks are for your workforce with some able to tow 20,000 pounds or more depending on which level you choose.
