The Ram 1500 has been a perennial favorite among Northern Alabama truck drivers, and it’s not hard to see why. With so many available options, it is easy to find a pickup that has the features and capabilities you need for life in The Shoals, all at a price you can afford. But should you drive the 2021 Ram 1500 Crew Cab or Quad Cab? We’re here to break down the differences in cab space and options so you can make the right choice on your next truck. Crew Cab vs. Quad Cab – find your favorite at Opelika Ford Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram today. 

Price: Ram Crew Cab vs. Quad Cab

When comparing the Ram Crew Cab vs. Quad Cab, you will notice that you have more choices when it comes to Crew Cab configurations. If you opt for the Ram 1500 Crew Cab configuration, you will have two bed sizes to choose from, while the Ram 1500 Quad Cab has just the one bed — this means you’ll have a few different starting prices to weigh, depending on what you need out of your new truck. 

Ram 1500 Crew Cab

  • The 5-foot 7-inch Crew Cab: $35,045 starting MSRP
  • The 6-foot 4-inch Crew Cab: $34,345 starting MSRP

Ram 1500 Quad Cab

  • The 6-foot 4-inch Quad Cab: $32,245 starting MSRP

Each of the Ram 1500 beds is 66.4 inches wide and 21.5 inches deep. If you choose the 5-foot 7-inch bed, that’s 67.4 inches, roughly a 5.5-foot square bed. If you need to be able to regularly haul full-length sheets of plywood or drywall around Tuscumbia or Muscle Shoals, it’s probably better to go with the 6-foot 4-inch bed. If you lay the tailgate down, you’ll have just over 96 inches of length — or enough space for that 8×4 sheet of plywood.

Cargo & Passenger Space: Ram Crew Cab vs. Quad Cab

The big difference between the Ram Crew Cab vs. Quad Cab is the amount of space you’ll have to work with in the cab and with the truck bed.

  • Ram 1500 Crew Cab: The larger of the two, the Ram 1500 Crew Cab seats up to 6 passengers and has a total volume of 132 cubic feet.
  • Ram 1500 Quad Cab: The Quad Cab can also seat up to 6, but you’ll have just 117 cubic feet of space in the cab.

At first glance, you might think the larger cab is just for someone who needs to fill those seats and wants their rear passengers to be comfy, but that extra cab space also gives you more storage room. Want to keep your tools or tech away from sticky fingers and prying eyes? Between the extra space in the Crew Cab and the RamBox cargo management system, you could practically bring your office from Tuscumbia or Killen to the job site.

State-of-the-Art Amenities: Ram Crew Cab vs. Quad Cab

No matter which Ram 1500 model best suits your needs, you can expect a wealth of standard and available features to enhance your daily drive.

  • Uconnect® 3 with 5-inch display
