What is the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Bed Length?
There are two options in bed length for the 2019 model year Ram 1500, depending on whether your truck is a Quad Cab or a Crew Cab. There is only one option if you own a Quad Cab, as it comes with only a 76.3 (6.35 feet) bed, and the Crew Cab comes with a default 67.1 inches or 5.57 feet or an option of the longer bed.
It should be noted that realistic payload numbers do not include passengers' weight or items placed inside the cab. (If four people are sitting in the truck, each weighing 200 lbs, the payload should be reduced by 800 lbs).
What is the Difference for Passenger Volume?
The Quad cab style truck, also known as the extended cab, offers minimal seating behind the front row. A Crew cab has designated seating (a larger-sized back seat similar to an SUV) that nets rear seat passengers 6.1 additional inches of room.
How Does the 2019 Ram Stack up Against 2019 Other Trucks?
The Ford F150 offers three different bed configurations; 5.5 ft. or 6.5 ft. or 8.0 ft bed lengths, depending on the cab configurations. The Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 come with 5.10 (5 ft - 8 in), 6.5 (6 ft - 7 inches), and an 8.0 ft option. The Toyota Tundra has 5 ft - 6 in, 6 ft - 6 in, and an 8 ft. - 1 in. bed.
Many purveyors make bed extenders that will allow you to increase the distance from the back of the cab to the edge of the folded-down tailgate. Generally, these extenders lay on the tailgate and are secured to the truck. This accessory allows owners to haul larger things that might not fit into a regular bed.
Regardless of the cab configuration you might have, please ensure that any load you haul is secured properly. Every year, countless accidents are caused by unsecured loads. If something comes loose and damages the vehicle behind you, you will be responsible for any damage or injury you have caused.
