What is a crew cab vs double cab vs regular cab?
Doesn’t it seem like it doesn’t matter where you look, pickup trucks are everywhere? The times when pickups were made only for work are in the past. These days, pickups can be upgraded to be as luxurious as the most iconic brands in luxury. There is a truck made for you, no matter if you need a workhorse or want the lap of luxury. Once you decide if you require 4WD (or just Rear-Wheel Drive), the next big decision is to figure out what cab size is best for you.
A regular cab pickup has just one row of seating with a small amount of legroom and storage space, as the name implies. A regular cab was once the single way to purchase trucks. In most regular cabs, the seatbacks practically touch the back side of the cab. This model is the more “work” version of a pickup truck and is normally found with manual windows and locks. A regular cab is made to work, not for hauling family and friends.
As you could probably guess, an Extended Cab (sometimes called a Double Cab pickup) is just a Regular Cab with more area behind the front-row seats. When first introduced, extended cab trucks were just available for purchase as 2-door models and only had rear jump seats available. Now sometimes known as a Double Cab truck, these trucks now come with second-row doors for access to the cargo area. Even though there are 2 rows of seating, an Extended Cab pickup truck wouldn’t be the ideal vehicle for road trips, even if it can carry more people.
While not as apparent as the other models, a Crew Cab truck has four regular-size doors and the room to transport, well, your ‘crew.’ Crew Cab trucks are built to transport more stuff and people. In some circles, these styles of pickup trucks have become the family vehicle. A Crew Cab truck’s powerful engine options and bigger size are unmatched in the 4-door sedan segment while still providing the legroom and comfort that families desire.
