Are you planning to buy a Ford F-150, and want to know the difference between the SuperCab and the SuperCrew? You’ve come to the right place, for we have researched this question, and we have the answer for you.
The most noticeable difference between the SuperCab and the SuperCrew is the second pair of doors. The SuperCrew secondary doors are full-size, in comparison to the SuperCab’s secondary doors, that:
- are smaller,
- open opposite the first pair of doors,
- and don’t normally have a handle outside.
There are other differences between the SuperCab and the SuperCrew that we will talk about in the succeeding sections. Read on!
What is the difference between the SuperCab and The SuperCrew?
The SuperCab is Ford’s version of an extended cab, while the SuperCrew is their version of a crew cab.
The SuperCab is ideal for people who are looking for a work truck that has the option to carry passengers in the back. It is small enough to be installed with an 8-foot box but large enough to seat six people if necessary.
The rear seat legroom is 33.5 inches, the headroom is 40.3 inches, the shoulder room is 66.1 inches, and the hip room is 62.6 inches. The total cargo volume behind the front row seats is 30.6 cubic feet.
Older versions of the SuperCab come with two- and three-door models. However, all newer models of Ford F-150 that are equipped with the SuperCab come in four-door models with backward-hinged second pair of doors.
Unfortunately, this type of door requires that you open the front door first before you can open the rear door.
Ford introduced the SuperCrew in 2001. It comes with four regular-sized doors. The SuperCrew is the best option for F-150 owners that wants to seat six passengers comfortably.
The SuperCrew provides a spacious rear seat area for passengers. More legroom makes the rear seat area more comfortable. This makes it a more suitable choice for families.
Because it is longer than the SuperCab, the SuperCrew cannot go with an 8-foot box. However, it can be paired with the smaller 5.5-foot box, a box option that is not available for the SuperCab.
The legroom for the rear seat is 43.6 inches, the headroom is 40.4 inches, the shoulder room is 66 inches, and the hip room is 62.6 inches. The total cargo volume behind the front seats in a SuperCrew is 50.9 cubic feet.
Unfortunately, the SuperCrew models of the Ford F-150 have a lower payload rating than the SuperCab variants because the bigger cab area makes it heavier.
Ford F-150 trims with SuperCab
The SuperCab is only available in three trims—the F-150 XL, the F-150 XLT, and the F-150 Lariat.
Ford F-150 trims with SuperCrew
The SuperCrew is available on all three trims that also carry the SuperCab. Additionally, it is the only cab available for the F-150 King Ranch, F-150 Platinum, F-150 Limited, F-150 Tremor, and the F-150 Special Service Vehicle.
Moreover, all trims of the Ford F-150 Lightning (F-150 Lightning Pro, F-150 Lightning XLT, F-150 Lightning Lariat, F-150 Lightning Platinum)—Ford’s all-electric truck—are available only in SuperCrew.
Even the Ford F-150 Raptor is only available with the SuperCrew option.
Will F-150 fit in my 20-foot garage?
The Ford F-150 will fit in a standard 8-foot-high garage if it is in its stock form. However, modifications like larger wheels, a cargo rack on the roof, or aftermarket lights will make the Ford F-150 too tall to fit into the entrance of a garage.
In addition to the height clearance of the F-150, you also need to consider the length.
A stock SuperCrew F-150 with a 6.5-foot bed is more than 20 feet long. If you equip it with a bull bar and rear bumper modification, then it can easily get close to 21 feet long.
Some garages have a depth of 22 feet. The Ford F-150 will fit into a 22-foot-deep garage if you do not have anything on the wall opposite the garage doors. However, if your garage is only 20 feet deep, then you will not be able to close the garage doors with some F-150 trims.
An F-150 with a regular cab and a 6.5-foot box is only 209.1 inches in length and 75.6 inches tall. This is only 17.4 feet long and 6.3 feet high when stock. It should easily fit inside most 20-foot-long garages.
How many feet long is a Ford F150?
Ford F-150 offers different combinations of three types of cabs and three types of boxes. The different combinations of cab and box give the F-150 different total lengths.
Let’s look at the different combinations based on the different cabs of the F-150.
Regular cab lengths
The regular cab F-150 has only one set of doors and only a front row of seats.
A 2022 and 2021 regular cab F-150 with a 6.5-foot box is 209.1 inches long, or 17.4 feet long. The length becomes 227.7 inches or 18.9 feet when you combine the regular cab with the 8-foot box.
The 2020 and the 2019 regular cab variant of the F-150 is slightly longer at 209.3 inches or 17.4 feet long when you install a 6.5-foot box. The length becomes 227.9 inches or 19 feet long when you install the 8-foot-long box with the regular cab.
You cannot have the regular cab and the 5.5-foot box on the same F-150 truck.
The 2022 and the 2021 SuperCab F-150 are 231.7 inches long or 19.3 feet long when you pair them with the 6.5-foot-long box. The length becomes 250.3 inches or 20.8 feet when you combine the SuperCab and the 8-foot-long box.
The 2020 and the 2019 SuperCab variants of the F-150 are slightly longer at 231.9 inches or 19.3 feet when you use the 6.5-foot box. It is also slightly longer with the 8-foot box at 250.5 inches or 20.9 feet.
The SuperCab cannot have a 5.5-foot box.
The SuperCrew model of the 2022 and the 2021 F-150 is 231.7 inches long or 19.3 feet long when you install the 5.5-foot box with it. The length becomes 243.5 inches or 20.3 feet long when you have the 6.5-foot box with the SuperCrew cab.
The 2020 and the 2019 SuperCrew variant of the F-150 is slightly longer than the newer models at 231.9 inches or 19 feet long when you install the 5.5-foot box. The total length becomes 243.7 inches or 20.3 feet long when the 6.5-foot box goes with the SuperCrew cab option.
The SuperCrew is the longest of the three different cab types. Because of its length, you cannot have the 8-foot-long box with the SuperCrew cab model.
How heavy is a Ford F150?
The weight of a car or truck is presented as the curb weight—the closest representation of the true weight of the vehicle. It is the weight of the vehicle that includes a full tank of fuel, including all stock equipment and fluids that it needs to function properly.
The curb weight does not include the weight of passengers, cargo, optional equipment, or any aftermarket modifications.
We present the different curb weights of the F-150 here based on the different cab and box combinations.
Regular cab weights
The curb weight of the 2022 and the 2021 Ford F-150 with a regular cab, a 6.5-foot box, and 2WD is 4,021 pounds. Swapping the 6.5-foot box with the 8-foot box will increase the weight to 4,122 pounds.
The curb weight of the 4WD model of the regular cab with a 6.5-foot box is 4,275 pounds. This becomes 4,363 pounds when you swap the 6.5-foot box with the 8-foot box.
The 2022 and the 2021 2WD models of a SuperCab F-150 with a 6.5-foot box have a curb weight of 4,345 pounds. The curb weight becomes 4,574 pounds when you replace the 6.5-foot box with an 8-foot box.
The 4WD model of the 2022 and 2021 SuperCab F-150 with a 6.5-foot box has a curb weight of 4,598 pounds. The weight becomes 4,941 pounds when you swap the 6.5-foot box with the 8-foot box.
The curb weight of the 2022 and the 2021 2WD models of a SuperCrew F-150 truck with a 6.5-foot box is 4,616 pounds. The weight goes down to 4,465 pounds when you replace the 6.5-foot box with the 5.5-foot box.
The total curb weight of the 2022 and the 2021 4WD variant of the SuperCrew F-150 truck with a 6.5-foot box is a whopping 5,014 pounds. Fortunately, this goes down to 4,705 pounds when you take out the 6.5-foot box and use the 5.5-foot box instead.
Choosing between the SuperCab and the SuperCrew options of the Ford F-150 is the same as choosing between rear-seat comfort and overall truck versatility.
