Truck Cab Guide

Automotive manufacturers use different names for their various truck cab sizes. While Ford may call their largest cab the SuperCrew, Toyota calls theirs the CrewMax. However, all truck cabs generally fit into one of three categories: regular cab, extended cab or crew cab.

 

/ Regular cab

This type of truck cab is the smallest of the three, providing seating for two or three people.

It has two full-size, front-hinging doors, and unlike the other cab types, it usually has no extra space behind the first row.

/ Extended cab

This type of truck cab has at least two full-size, front-hinging doors and extra seating behind the first row. The back seats are accessed either by moving the main seats forward or by opening a set of smaller, rearward doors, called suicide doors.

An extended cab typcially also has a set of smaller passenger windows behind the first-row windows.

/ Crew cab

This type of truck cab is the largest of the three and typically has four full-size, front-hinging doors. It offers the most room with two full rows and seating for up to five or six people.

Some of the largest crew cabs also offer extra space behind the second row.
