One of the biggest choices that you’ll have to make when purchasing your very own Orlando used truck is to choose the size of your cab. There are only three options, generally, so you might think that there’s not much to making such a decision, but in fact, there is. That one choice alone will affect the cost of the truck, how you can use it, and how it holds value. Today Gibson Truck World is going to tell you everything you need to know to decide which pickup truck is the best fit for you.
As previously mentioned, there are three options to choose from: regular cab, extended cab, and crew cab. The regular cab is the smallest size, seating two to three people in a single row. Right behind the seats is the window to the cab, so there isn’t much room. The largest size is called the Crew cab, as in you can fit the entire crew in there. It offers two rows of full-size seats. The option that falls in between these two is the extended cab. It’s basically an extension of the regular cab, providing a small row of seats in the back.
Pros & Cons of Each Option
The benefits of a regular cab are that it is the least expensive option, which allows you to spend your dollars on other features that you may find more useful. The cons of this size are that you are limited to how many people can ride with you and you won’t have much room to store things inside. The pros of a crew cab are that you can fit twice as many people as a regular cab, and securely store many more things. The downside is that you’ll be paying more initially, and your truck bed is likely going to be shorter in length than a regular cab. The extended cab lands somewhere in between, allowing you more storage inside, the capability to seat more people, and maintain a regular length bed. This option, too, is more expensive than the regular cab, but it is cheaper than the crew cab. Both the crew cab and extended cabs see higher resale values than the regular cab, which is something to keep in mind down the line.
