What is an extended cab vs crew cab vs regular cab?
These days pickups are everywhere. The days where trucks were made only for work are long gone. Modern pickups can be outfitted to be as luxurious as the well-known brands from Germany. There is a truck made for you, no matter if you want to cruise in style or require a workhorse. Once you decide if you must have 4-Wheel Drive (or just Rear-Wheel Drive), the next big decision is to figure out what cab type works best for you.
As the name implies, a regular cab truck has one row of seats with very limited storage space and legroom. A regular cab was once the one way to buy pickups. In most regular cab pickup trucks, the seats practically touch the rear part of the cab. This style is the more “work” version of a truck and is normally found with manual windows and locks. A regular cab is a work pickup, not for hauling friends and family around.
As one could probably guess, an Extended Cab truck (can also be called a Double Cab ) is basically just a Regular Cab with extra room behind the front seating. When first introduced, extended cab pickup trucks were available as 2-door models and had small rear jump seats available. These days they may be called a Double Cab pickup, these trucks now have slim, second-row doors for access to the rear cargo area. Even though there are 2 rows of seating, an Extended Cab truck wouldn’t be the ideal choice for road trips, even though it can carry more people.
While not as apparent as the earlier versions, a Crew Cab truck boasts 4 regular-size doors and the room to hold your ‘crew.’ Crew Cab trucks are built to transport more stuff and-or people. In some circles, these kinds of pickups have become the family vehicle. A Crew Cab pickup’s powerful engines and bigger size are unavailable in the 4-door sedan segment while still being able to offer the passenger legroom and comfort that families need.
