Deciding on a new truck isn’t easy; there’s any number of things to consider before you spend your hard-earned cash at the dealership. Chief among your considerations is size – both for passengers and for hauling – to help get the most out of your purchase. We’ve got you covered with our list of 4-door full-size and mid-size trucks with long beds on the market to help you get the best of both worlds.

Full-sized Trucks

Ford

  • Ford F-150 Lariat Supercrew
    • Total length – 243.7 in
    • Length of bed- 6.5 ft
    • Second-row legroom – 43.6 in
  • Ford F-150 Supercrew XLT
    • Total length – 243.7 in
    • Length of bed – 6.5 ft
    • Second-row legroom – 43.6 in
  • Ford Super Duty F-250 Lariat 
    • Total length – 266.2 in
    • Length of bed – 8 ft
    • Second-row legroom – 43.6 in

Ford’s F-Series has perhaps one of the most diverse sets of offerings on the market, so there is something to suit every need. Included above is just a small sampling of their offerings – Ford offers multiple trims on each F-Series model as well as add-ons for ample customization. While the longest bed available with a crew cab on the F-150 lineup is 6.5 ft, the Super Duty lineup of the F-250, F-350, and F-450 go up to an 8 ft bed with a crew cab. The F-Series crew cabs all have the same second-row legroom – a respectable 43.6 inches. Check out our post on 6 Types of Ford Trucks to read more.

Chevrolet

  • Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss 4WD
    • Total length – 241.21 in
    • Length of bed – 6 ft 7 in
    • Second-row legroom – 43.4 in
  •  Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD
    • Total length – 266 in
    • Length of bed – 8 ft
    • Second-row legroom – 43.4 in
  • Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD
    • Total length – 266 in
    • Length of bed – 8 ft
    • Second-row legroom – 43.4 in

Almost as prolific as Ford, Chevy similarly offers many crew cabs with long beds. The Silverado 1500 lineup competes with the F-150, while the Chevrolet Silverado HD lineup is a tough competitor to the Ford Super Duty Series, both coming out with almost identical total length, bed length, and second-row legroom! The HD variant trucks are meant to be powerful workhorses and are among the largest crew cab configuration you can find today. 

Dodge

  • Dodge Ram Tradesman Crew Cab
    • Total length – 241.8 in
    • Length of bed – 6 ft 4 in
    • Second-row legroom – 45.2 in

While the bed on this Dodge Ram crew cab is an average 6 ft 4 in, the Ram crew cab presents 45.2 inches of second-row legroom – the largest in our full-sized truck roundup. This truck is similar in dimensions to the Ford F-150 above but gives an additional two inches in legroom to your passengers. Here is our detailed breakdown of the Dodge Ram if you want to know more about this classic. 

GMC

  • GMC Sierra Elevation
    • Total length – 241.3 in
    • Length of bed – 6 ft 7 in
    • Second-row legroom – 43.4 in

The same group manufactures the GMC Sierra and the Chevrolet Silverado, and therefore there is a great deal of overlap between the two. The GMC Sierra is almost identical in dimension to the Silverado 1500 lineup! 

Nissan

  • Nissan Titan XD
    • Total length – 243.6 in
    • Length of bed – 6 ft 6 in
    • Second-row legroom – 38.5 in

For our lineup, the Nissan Titan XD has a perfectly respectable bed length of 6 ft 6 in; however, the rear passenger legroom leaves much to be desired. Measuring only 38.5 in, this is nearly 5 inches below the next lowest amount of legroom on our list. This makes it the least roomy of the crew cab options we looked at. 

Mid-sized Trucks

Ford

  • Ford Ranger Supercrew
    • Total length – 210.8 in
    • Length of bed – 5 ft
    • Second-row legroom – 34.5 in 

The Ford Ranger is – like the Ford F-Series – a name synonymous with pickup trucks. Although starting its life as a compact pickup, after an eight-year hiatus, it was resurrected as a mid-sized truck. The Supercrew Ranger has a modest truck bed at 5 ft long, slotting it neatly below the F-150 Supercrew bed measurements.   

Chevrolet

  • Chevrolet Colorado LT Crew Cab
    • Total length – 224.9 in
    • Length of bed – 6 ft 2 in
    • Second-row legroom – 35.8 in

Chevy’s mid-sized truck (along with the GMC Canyon – which is the same truck under a different badge) like the Ford Ranger started as a compact truck before entering the mid-size market. It has the longest bed on this list at 6 ft 2 in, as well as class average second-row legroom at 35.8 inches. The Colorado offers a wide variety of options to cater to those in the market for a mid-sized truck and provides a bed only slightly shorter than trucks like the Ford F-150.

Toyota

  • Toyota Tacoma SR5 Double Cab
    • Total length – 225.5 in
    • Length of bed – 6 ft 1 in
    • Second-row legroom – 32.6 in 

While Toyota falls below the leading three truck brands, the Tacoma still makes a place for itself in the mid-sized segment. The Toyota Tacoma comes just an inch behind the Colorado and Canyon in terms of bed length at 6 ft 1 inch. The second-row legroom is the shortest of the trucks on this list coming in at only 32.6 inches. Check out our detailed guide on the Tacoma here!

Nissan

  • Nissan Frontier Crew Cab Long Bed SV
    • Total length – 219.4 in
    • Length of bed – 6 ft 1 in
    • Second-row legroom – 33.6 in

Nissan’s entry in the mid-sized truck category matches the Toyota Tacoma quite closely, although it gives an additional inch to the rear legroom. Like others in this segment, it started as a compact truck before growing and becoming a member of the mid-sized truck class.  

GMC

  • GMC Canyon SLE 4WD Crew Cab Long Bed
    • Total length – 224.6 in
    • Length of bed – 6 ft 2 in
    • Second-row legroom – 35.8 in

Tied with its twin, the Chevy Colorado, the GMC Canyon offers the same dimensions and many similar features and is also the longest bed on a mid-sized truck on our list.  

Honda

  • Honda Ridgeline
    • Total length – 210 in
    • Length of bed – 5 ft 4 in
    • Second-row legroom – 36.7 in

While Honda might not be the first name you think of for pickup trucks, the Ridgeline is nevertheless an option for those looking for a mid-sized pickup with quite generous second-row legroom. The bed is a modest 5 ft 4 in, but the second-row legroom is among the best of the crew cabs we looked at. 

Jeep

  • Jeep Gladiator
    • Total length – 218 in
    • Length of bed – 5 ft
    • Second-row legroom – 38.3 in

One of the more recent additions to the mid-sized category, and the only truck in Jeep’s lineup, the Gladiator has some tough competition. That being said, while the bed length is among the shortest we looked at, the Gladiator has the most spacious second row of seating for your passengers. 

How Long Is a 4 Door Long Bed Pickup On Average

Full-size

For full-sized trucks, the average bed length for a 4 door long bed pick up is around 6.5 ft, while the average total length is approximately 243 inches (or about 20 ft!). While some full-sized pickups can be configured with 8 ft beds, these are most often meant for heavy work and lots of hauling and are correspondingly expensive, making them somewhat outliers in our list.

Mid-size 

The beds for mid-sized trucks on our list range from 5 ft to 6 ft 2 in, and unlike the full-sized trucks, there seems to be much more variation in length between brands. On the shorter end of the list, we have the Jeep Gladiator and Ford Ranger at only 5 ft of bed length, while the 6 ft 2 in bed Colorado and Canyon are only a few inches shorter than some truck beds in our full-sized category. The average length of the trucks hovers around 219 inches, so only slightly shorter than the full-sized trucks. 

Are All 4 Door Trucks Considered Crew Cab?

Not quite! There are some “double cab” models with 4 doors; however, these are not crew cabs. The “crew” in the crew cab name comes from construction crew – in other words, it’s a truck meant to haul a team of workers to and from construction sites. In a crew cab, the second row should seat additional adults in reasonable comfort, while a conventional double cab has a much more compact second row. Often the second row of doors on a double cab is abbreviated, while the crew cab will have four full-sized doors. If you’re looking to carry passengers reasonably often, a crew cab is likely the better option. Click here for our article on types of truck cabs for more information! 

Which Crew Cab Trucks Have the Longest Bed?

Full-size

The full-sized trucks with the most extended bed are the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD, and the Ford F-250 SuperDuty. You can configure all of these trucks with a crew cab and an 8ft bed, making them the longest around.

Mid-size

In the midsized category, the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon have the longest beds mated to a crew cab at 6ft 2in. The Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier are only about an inch shorter, making this a close race! These beds are only inches shorter than some of the full-sized truck beds, like the Dodge Ram Tradesman, and even the Ford F-150 models! 

 

In short, there are plenty of options for a crew cab truck with a long bed, no matter what size you’re looking for. Keep in mind that a crew cab will have fewer bed length options overall, for a variety of reasons. Truck manufacturers know the demand and have crafted a diverse market of trucks to meet everyone’s needs. Whether you’re a construction worker hauling a crew around, or an adventure seeker looking for a spacious truck for camping, there is something for you!
