The 2020 RAM Quad Cab vs. Crew Cab


You’re in the market for a RAM pickup because you need a truck that works as hard as you do. But should you get the quad cab, or pay a little more for the crew cab and give your crew a little more space? It depends on what you need your truck to do. A lot of our Camden customers have the same quandary when they come in. To help you decide, we’ve put together a side by side comparison of the RAM 1500 Tradesman crew cab vs quad cab.

The RAM Crew Cab vs. Quad Cab: Box Size

The cab in the crew cab is bigger, so its box comes in two available sizes. The 6’4” box that comes with the quad cab is also available for the crew cab. But a 5’7” box is also available for the crew cab, in case you want to cut down on the overall length of the truck.

The RAM Crew Cab vs. Quad Cab: Capacities

The main difference between the RAM 1500 crew cab vs. quad cab is size, and that affects how much each can haul and tow. While there is the same amount of cargo space in the 6’4” box for each truck, the maximum payload is higher for the quad cab. Why? Because a truck’s weight cannot exceed its Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR). The quad’s bigger cab weighs more than the crew cab, so it takes up more of the GVWR, leaving less weight for the payload. Towing capacity is also impacted. So, you’ll want to keep that in mind if you have a lot to tow on our Sheridan roads. Here are the capacities:

  • Quad Cab:
    • 2,300 pounds
  • Crew Cab:
    • 1,930 pounds (5’7” box)
    • 1,880 pounds (6’4” box)

Towing Capacity

GCWR

  • Quad Cab:
    • 12,900 pounds
  • Crew Cab
    • 11,900 pounds

The RAM Crew Cab vs. Quad Cab: Passenger Space

Both the crew cab and quad cab can seat 6 passengers, but the crew cab is built to seat them more comfortably with more room. Here are the passenger dimensions:

  • Quad Cab: 35.6 inches
  • Crew Cab: 45.2 inches
