Ever notice how GM trucks aren’t offered with a cabin larger than the Crew Cab? While that doesn’t happen, Ram offers the MegaCab for those looking to get the biggest pickup cab out there. In fact, that cab is so big that it dwarfs the Silverado and Sierra Crew Cab, along with any other competitors such as the Toyota Tundra Crewmax and Ford Super Duty Crew Cab.
Coincidentally, we receive messages from readers on a regular basis asking why GM doesn’t offer a bigger cab option than the Crew Cab, and whether or not it plans on doing so in the future. The most recent of these questions comes from GM Authority reader Don, who wrote in with the following:
“When in the world is GM going to build a “MegaCab” onto the Silverado HD? I have a Dodge Ram 3500 MegaCab and love the extra room for suitcases behind the rear seat. Yes, I am keeping my 2006 Silverado, but will not buy another Silverado until a MegaCab is introduced.”
For reference, FCA’s Ram Heavy Duty is offered in Regular Cab, Crew Cab, and Mega Cab configurations. The Regular Cab features two doors and seating for two or three (with a bench seat) and the Crew Cab is roughly the size of the Crew Cab offered on the Silverado and Sierra HD and offers seating for five or six passengers (also with a front bench seat). Meanwhile, the Mega Cab goes a step beyond and offers palatial amounts of space, especially in the second row, and even behind it (as Don pointed out).
So, is it time that GM trucks offered a cab larger than Crew Cab, along the lines of the Ram MegaCab? Cast your vote in the poll and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
