When it comes to choosing the right machine for the job at hand, you’re going to want to make sure you’ve got enough room for you and your ride-or-die crew of job site jockeys. You want to find the Ford that fits, and with so many choices when it comes to cab size, you’ll want to go in with an idea of what a term like “SuperCrew” means in comparison to others like “SuperCab” and “Regular Cab”. If you don’t already know, the SuperCrew body style is as big and bad as a truck cab gets, though relative size isn’t the only thing that distinguishes this from other F-Series body styles. This post will delve into the meanings of these terms and what they mean for Ford’s lineup of ready-to-roll F-Series pickup trucks.
Any truck-maker worth their grit knows that you’ve got to offer a pickup that’s configurable to the demands of any job, regardless of size or scope. You’re then faced with an important question: what size of cab does the work require? The last thing anyone wants is a truck in which everyone’s knocking elbows! You need a cab built to stand up to the wear-and-tear of you work, with room for your right-hand mates. Let’s get into it then, shall we?
SuperCrew vs. Regular
Ford’s Regular Cab body style is the smallest setup in this trio. With two doors, this straightforward cabin configuration offers a single bench seat that sits two occupants comfortably with some room for a third, should the circumstances require it. The most practical of available F-Series body styles, the Regular Cab is not available at Lariat, King Ranch or Platinum trim levels. But don’t let what it might lack in space (compared to its larger siblings) turn you away. What it saves in cabin room it spends on a maximum towing capacity that outdoes that of both SuperCab and SuperCrew configurations, by up to two-hundred pounds! To half-quote Shakespeare, “though it be little, it be fierce”.
SuperCrew vs. SuperCab
The main difference between Ford’s two largest can configurations is in the doors. While both styles offer ample seating for six, the SuperCrew comes equipped with two full sets of doors, or a total of four doors that work independently of one another. In the case of the smaller SuperCab, the layout features two partial rear doors that require the front doors to be opened first, in order to be opened themselves. Fastening the partial rear doors shut also requires that the full front doors be closed, as well. This variance amounts to a difference in the relative room available to passengers. The Ford F-150 SuperCab, for instance, comes with 116 cubic ft. of passenger room, 31.6 cu.ft. of luggage room, and offers 33.5-inches of legroom. The SuperCrew has an expanded cabin that offers 132 cubic ft. of passenger room, has an interior volume of up to 51.9 cu.ft., and features more legroom, at 43.9-inches.
The SuperCab configuration is also only available at XLT and Lariat trim levels, while the larger SuperCrew setup is available for Lariat and above, while also being the exclusive body style of the premium King Ranch and Platinum F-150 editions. The SuperCrew is purposely designed for hauling passengers and their stuff so there’s no need to worry about someone or something getting left out.
And they’re you have it. The differences between the various body style options available on Ford F-Series pickups are diverse enough to fit jobs of all sizes. From the down-to-business Regular Cab to the rough’n tumble SuperCab and all the way up to the positively cavernous SuperCrew cab body style, the range of available options is as wide as the door-to-door span of our pickups. But don’t take our word for it; you’ve got to come and experience these dimensions for yourself!
