Now that we know which pickup trucks can seat six people, we'll go a little deeper into each model. You may be wondering if you need to focus on a particular style of cab or trim level and what the starting price is for these pickups. For answers to these questions and more, keep reading.
Available Pickup Trucks With 6 Seats
When looking for a truck for six passengers, remember that the pickup has to have a bench seat in the front; otherwise, the truck wouldn't be able to hold more than five people. American mid-sized pickups don't have bench seats, so they can only seat five. Most full-size, light-duty, and heavy-duty trucks have bench seats and therefore can seat six people. Those are the ones we review in this article.
In order to eliminate some confusion as we move forward, we should explain that cab means the cabin of the truck, where the driver and passengers sit, and the trim level or trim is just a different version of the model, with various features or equipment for each type.

We figure that after reading all of this, you have more questions. We'll try to answer some of them below.
What's The Difference Between Bucket And Bench Seats?
We had mentioned at the start of this post that the truck would have to have a bench front seat to hold six people. A bench seat is the oldest style of seat and what you'll see in the front of most classic cars. They go across the entire length of the cabin with no divisions, allowing space for three people to sit.
Bucket seats are rounded seats with high sides made for an individual person. They are called buckets because older seats used to be curved and resembled buckets. If a pickup has bucket seats in the front, there would be only two, usually with a center console in between them.
Which Pickup Truck Has The Most Interior Room?
With all the different cab styles available, you may be wondering which truck has the most room for your family. Based on the amount of leg, head, and shoulder room, the Ford F-150 SuperCrew comes in first, with the Toyota Tundra CrewMax coming in second.
Where Do You Put An Infant Car Seat In A Truck?
If your pickup truck did not have a back seat, or if the car seat isn't compatible with your back seat, then - as long as there's no active airbag - a child can legally be put in the front seat in a rear-facing car seat. If you do have a six-seater pickup, and your car seat is compatible, then the car seat can be put in the back seat as it would a car.
Is There A Truck That Seats 8?
With babies comes the need for more room, and you may wonder if there is a pickup truck with a third row to seat eight people. Unfortunately, there isn't, but you can still have the power of a pickup in truck form with the Ford Expedition, which seats eight people comfortably.
