Crew cab trucks are designed to haul people along with cargo and are prized by families and contractors alike for their ability to stand in as daily drivers and troop transporters whether your final destination is soccer practice or the job site. Not all crew cab trucks are created equal when it comes to how much room they have to offer their up-to-six passengers, which is why we put together this list of the biggest crew cab trucks. We had to choose one particular measurement to use as our yardstick, so we went with rear leg room, figuring not getting crushed behind the driver is the most important characteristic of any two-row vehicle.
Let's take a quick look at 8 of the biggest crew cab pickups available, based on rear leg room.
Biggest Crew Cab Trucks For 2015 - 01 - 2014 Ford F-150 SuperCrew
Although we don't have specifications on the 2015 model yet, the 2014 Ford F-150 SuperCrew leads the full-size crew cab truck pack in terms of overall leg room, which strongly suggests it'll do the same once the re-designed model goes on sale. There are 43.5 inches of rear leg room to be had in the Ford F-150 SuperCrew, which is actually a couple of inches more than front passengers are afforded. You also get 65.5 inches of shoulder room with the pickup, as well as 40.3 inches of headroom and 64.6 inches of hip room.
Biggest Crew Cab Trucks For 2015 - 02 - 2015 Ram 3500 Mega Cab
Next up on our list of the biggest crew cab trucks is a true monster, the 2015 Ram 3500 Mega Cab. Let's face it: if you use the word 'Mega' to describe you vehicle, then you better back it up, and the Ram 3500 certain does with 43.3 inches of rear leg room, 63.2 inches of rear hip room, and 40.3 inches of back seat head room. There's also 65.7 inches of rear shoulder room, which is just a touch more than is found in the F-150. Another plus about the Mega Cab design are its rear doors, which are generously sized to make it easy to get in and out of the pickup.
Biggest Crew Cab Trucks For 2015 - 03 - 2015 Toyota Tundra Crewmax
The 2015 Toyota Tundra Crewmax snags the third spot in our biggest crew cab truck roundup, posting rear leg room of 42.3 inches. This is almost a match for front riders, who get 0.3 inches more space. You'll notice by now that there's not a lot separating the leaders in the segment, with a spread of just over an inch separating the trio at the top. The Toyota Tundra Crewmax also features 38.9 inches of rear head room, 60.4 inches of rear hip room, and 65.5 inches of rear shoulder room (matching the class-king F-150).
Biggest Crew Cab Trucks For 2015 - 04 - 2015 Ford Super Duty Crew Cab
Ford's second entry on this list - the 2015 Ford Super Duty Crew Cab - is possible due to the fact that its heavy duty trucks feature a separate body style from its light duty models. The Ford Super Duty Crew Cab boasts 42.1 inches of rear leg room, which is somewhat less than the Ram 3500 Mega Cab it's up against in the near-commercial segment. Helping even things out is an enormous 68 inches of rear should room along with 67.6 inches of rear hip room, tops amongst any of the vehicles in this list. Head room for the Super Duty checks in at 40.8 inches. It's worth nothing that the Ford's rear seat measurements match or beat its front seat equivalents in every category except for leg room.
Biggest Crew Cab Trucks For 2015 - 05 - 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab
The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab - and its platform twin, the GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab - finds itself in the middle of the pack with its 40.93 inches of rear leg room. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab also puts in a below-average hip room performance of 60.27 inches, but its shoulder room (65.73 inches) and head room (40.50 inches) are quite respectable. The Silverado was an all-new design for 2014, and risks being left behind in the crew cab wars if the next-generation F-150 turns out to be even larger than the current model.
Biggest Crew Cab Trucks For 2015 - 06 - 2014 Nissan Titan Crew Cab
The 2014 Nissan Titan Crew Cab is a vehicle that hasn't seen any updates made to its general dimensions, or mechanical details, in over a decade. Even so, the Nissan Titan Crew Cab hangs with the Silverado by way of its 40.4 inches of rear leg room, staying within a half-inch of the all-new truck. The Titan can also be counted on for 64.6 inches of rear shoulder room, and 60.5 inches of rear hip room. If you order the truck without its moon roof, the Nissan provides 41 inches of rear head room. With a moonroof, you're looking at 0.6 inches less.
Biggest Crew Cab Trucks For 2015 - 07 - 2015 Ram 1500 Crew Cab
You can't get a Mega Cab version of the 2015 Ram 1500, which means you have to stick with the smaller Crew Cab. In fact, the Ram 1500 Crew Cab features the least amount of rear leg room of any full-size crew cab pickup: 40.3 inches. Taking a look at the Ram's other vital statistics reveals a similarly under-sized story, with hip room at the rear showing as 63.2 inches and head room being listed at 39.9 inches. Shoulder room is the only measurement where the Ram remains competitive, with an advertised 65.7 inches.
Biggest Crew Cab Trucks For 2015 - 08- 2014 Honda Ridgeline
The 2014 Honda Ridgeline isn't a true full-size truck - it's more of a mid-size contender - but we're including it to illustrate the size difference between this four-door pickup and larger, more popular models. The Honda Ridgeline enjoys only 36.4 inches of leg room in the rear, which is almost five inches less than front passengers are provided with. It also features 62.6 inches of rear shoulder room, a small 57.1 inches of rear hip room, and rear head room that dips down to 39.1 inches. Given that the Ridgeline is often considered by those looking more for passenger comfort than overall utility, these numbers give one pause and point to the better all-around hauling characteristics of larger trucks.
