Almost every truck you saw was a single-cab with an eight-foot bed
Almost every truck you saw was a single-cab with an eight-foot bed. Hot rodders chose single-cabs with six-and-a-half foot beds. Then they would heat the springs and lower them a few inches. Today the wheel openings are so big that the few who still follow that hot rod trend have to run 24-inch wheels to get the look. Few bother.
Chevy Silverado Marketing Director Hugh Milne told Muscle Cars and Trucks, “We had customers that were disappointed that we didn’t do a regular cab short box, and we’re seeing whether or not offering one makes sense.” He continued, “We’re always evaluating opportunities but a lot of that is based on greenhouse gas and how that is formulated-we’re always trying to balance the portfolio.”
Though Nissan doesn’t sell a huge amount of trucks it dropped the Titan and Titan HD regular-cab this year. Toyota killed theirs in 2017. Mazda just released its new BT-50 pickup truck. It will have a single-cab down the road but it was introduced in Australia only as a crew-cab. Aussies consider that a premium, desirable pickup, not a single-cab.
Which Is the Best Single Cab Pickup?
In our eyes, it has to be the F-150. The reasons are myriad: the most available engine options, more opportunity for configuration, more safety, and luxury equipment in the XLT trim.
It seems as if Ford is the only truck manufacturer to not entirely marginalize the single cab layout, and it shows in the breadth and capability of the two-door F-150.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any single cab midsize pickups on the market?
No, there aren’t. The Ford Ranger was last offered in two-door guise back in 2011; the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon ditched the design back in 2013. The Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier are also strictly sold in the larger cab configurations, and the Honda Ridgeline never offered a single cab.
Does the Toyota Tundra offer a single cab?
Not anymore. In 2017 Toyota quietly dropped the two-door Tundra from its roster, leaving only extended- and crew-cab designs in the portfolio.
Does the Nissan Titan offer a single cab?
No. Nissan, like Toyota, is a niche player in the full-size truck market, and single cab trucks are now a niche offering themselves. As sales of regular cabs dissipated, Nissan killed off the body style at the end of 2019.
What are the benefits of a single cab truck?
Typically, single cab trucks offer the best payload figures, as they feature the lightest bodies due to their small passenger compartments. Their lightness also gives them an edge in unladen fuel economy. And perhaps the best benefit is affordability: while crew cabs usually can’t be had for less than $40,000 or so, a single cab can be brought home for around $30,000.
